Paphos is a year round holiday resort, and an ideal base for visiting all parts of the island.The winter months are just as popular as the summer because of the mild climate.
Many people return each year due to the friendliness of the local people, most of whom are English speaking, and the abundance and variety of local cuisine and wines.
Paphos was orignally the capital of Cyprus for 600 years in ancient times, and today it is recognised by UNESCO and is listed on the World Cultural Heritage List.
It boasts a pleasant harbour and medieval fort, seduces its visitors with its majestic landscape, and lovely coastline, its historical treasurers and mountains.
Driving in Cyprus is on the left - so for UK residents no problem for hiring a car.
Plugs are three pin the same as the UK.
The currency from 1st January, 2008 is the Euro
The road running through Kato Paphos is the Tomb of the Kings Road; the apartment is just round the corner from this road and only 2 minutes from here is Faros (Lighthouse) Beach, which you can see directly from the patio of the apartment.
The lighthouse itself is directly across from the apartment. The beach has been awarded a Blue Flag, has a new beach bar, toilets, showers and changing cubicles - sunbeds and umbrellas are available to hire. There is a pleasant paved coastal walk to the harbour directly behind the beach; from here the sunsets are magnificent.
The harbour itself is lined with restaurants and bars where you will want to linger for a drink, and take in the site of the ancient Fort at the seaward edge. You may be lucky enough to see the famous pink pelicans. Take a boat trip around the coast, or explore in the glass bottom boat.
Kato Paphos harbour and seafront is best for shopping local handicrafts. The coastal path continues east at the far end of the seafront.
The paved coastal walk also runs in the opposite direction from Faros Beach and as you walk you will find a play area for children. It continues on past the Tomb of the Kings Archaeological Site.
The main Tomb of the Kings Road from the apartment to the west leads to the golden beaches at Coral Bay and Corallia Beach and the buses run frequently from the main road. Further places to visit in the same direction are Sea Caves with magnificent rock formations and St Georgios; these are at the start of the Akamas Peninsular.
The towns of Limasol and Larnaca lie to the east and can be reached by the Motorway or coastal road, as can the famous Troodos Mountains that have many lovely villages to explore. The capital Nicosia is about an hour and a half away by driving on the Motorway.
All amenities are close at hand from the apartment including:
Restaurants and bars
24 hour supermarket
Pharmacy and Medical Centre

Along the Tomb of the Kings Road to the west, lie the famous underground Tombs of the Kings, which are well worth a visit, preferably in the cooler parts of the day.

The entrance is from the harbour, these are some of the finest mosaics ever discovered, with more still waiting to be discovered.
