The Paphos region
On the beautiful west coast of the island, the Paphos region offers a warm welcome and a wealth of attractions to holiday makers of all ages looking for sun, sea, and sand.
Paphos itself offers a unique blend of ancient and modern attractions, so it’s no wonder that this elegant city and favorable climate is so popular as an all year round tourist destination.
Such are the archaeological treasures and antiquities here that UNESCO has listed Paphos as a World Heritage Site. The area is packed with history and amongst the treasures that have been unearthed are Classical Temples, Villas, Vaults and Caves, and some of the world’s best preserved mosaics dating back to the 5th century, all of which are easily accessible from Tala.
Lots of local restaurants offer good value high quality international cuisine as well as traditional Greek tavernas, and for those interested in water sports and boat trips, the medieval harbor at Paphos which is lined with vibrant and colorful restaurants is a must to visit. The town itself is well worth exploring with its eclectic mix of modern supermarkets, department stores, and traditional markets.
It really is no wonder that the locals often refer to the Tala area as ‘the Beverley Hills of Cyprus’ with panoramic views over Paphos, the surrounding hills, and of course Coral Bay and the Mediterranean.
With it’s cooling breezes during the hot summer the region is a popular location for tourists and Cypriot residents alike, and an ideal place to relax and get away from it all and yet still be within a short drive of the many attractions that the Paphos region has to offer.
Within a few minutes drive or short walk from ‘Sunset Retreat’, the tradition of old is beautifully captured at the village centre in Tala, with it’s narrow paved streets and church dating back to the 15th century, where you can enjoy a drink or a meal at a choice of restaurants, bars or traditional tavernas.
Here you will also find a few small family run supermarkets for day to day needs, or the large Carrefour Hypermarket is just 15mins drive away at Paphos.
Just over a kilometer from ‘Sunset Retreat’ is the monastery of “Agios Neofytos” said to have been founded in the year 1159. Here you can imagine how life may have been then and reflect on life today in a peaceful environment surrounded by spectacular views. There is also a series of caves with frescoes.
The nearest Blue Flag sandy beaches are within a 15 minute drive away and at Coral Bay you will find a beautiful beach, restaurants, bars, and gift shops together with many water sports including jet-skiing, and skiing with parachutes.
