The Paphos region
Paphos Town once the capital of the island is now included in the official UNESCO list of cultural and natural treasures of the world's heritage. The remains of villas, palaces, theatres, fortresses and tombs mean that the town is of exceptional architectural and historic value. The well preserved mosaics and the Tombs of the Kings are probably the biggest cultural draw with further archaeological discoveries continually being made. Ano Pafos on the cliff is the main administrative centre and residential district while Kato Pafos, by the sea, is the main tourist area built around the harbour and medieval port.
Exploring Coral Bay, Paphos and everywhere in between, increases the list of available activities and attractions to include mini golf, watersports, go-karting, horse riding, a snooker hall, bowling alley, heritage sites, modern shopping facilities, a waterpark and the Paphos Bird and Animal Park.
The village of Tala is located approximately 8km north of Paphos, set on a west facing hillside overlooking the calm blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. The panoramic view, the favourable climate and the simplicity of the landscape are the main characteristics that led to the development of tourism. The area is well known for its cooling summer breezes and as it is situated on higher ground benefits from less humid air in the hot summer months.
Tala village amenities include a small grocery store, a kiosk, a pharmacy and a restaurant, all of which are within a 5 minute drive of the villa. The focal point of Tala Village, less than a 10 minute drive away, is the delightful square which has a small selection of restaurants, friendly tavernas and traditional pavement side coffee shops serving everything from meze style meals to local speciality dishes and international cuisines.
Standing proudly in the hills above the village is the imposing 12th Century Monastery of Saint Neophytos. On a site commanding fantastic views of the Mediterranean coast it is easy to imagine the beauty and isolation of this location which a thousand years ago enticed an extraordinary, self-taught, hermit called Neophytos to settle there. Of particular interest to the visitor is the cave with the cell of Saint Neophytos, an enclosure carved out of the mountain by the hermit. The rock-table and the stone platform on which he slept are still preserved as are some of the finest Byzantine frescoes dating from the 12th to the 15th century thought to be the work of the Saint and his followers.
The village is situated conveniently close to the Minthis Hills Golf Course at Tsada. This course designed by Donald Steel was the first grass course to be built in Cyprus. The newly enhanced course completed by the designers Mackenzie and Ebert, re-opened in June 2007. With its elevated position 550 metres above sea level, it plays to a par 72 and measures 6,060 metres. Practice facilities include a driving range, two putting greens, a pitching/chipping area and practice bunkers.
Just a 10 minute walk from the villa you will find the spectacular hillside amphitheatre with its landscaped gardens and taverna with breathtaking views of the Med. If you are lucky you may catch an open-air play or concert. Also located there is a children's park and basketball/football court.
Tala is only a 15 minute drive from Coral Bay, the well known beach resort for the Paphos district. This family oriented area has become a lively resort with plenty to offer in terms of amenities and activities. The resort boasts two sandy beaches, the busier of the two being the popular Coral Bay Beach, a sandy horseshoe shaped bay honoured with a Blue Flag of the European Union. Sunbeds and umbrellas are available for hire, watersports are on offer and there are two beach cafés providing refreshments. A little further along the coast is the quieter of the two beaches at Corallia Bay. Continue still further along the coast and you reach the natural rock caves of the area know locally as Sea Caves, an area which provides ideal snorkelling territory and is popular with local scuba diving schools.
