Shopping :The Kings Avenue Mall is an impressive full concept shopping mall ideally located in the heart of central Paphos convenient for both local residents and tourists. It is the most modern mall of Cyprus and offers visitors the ultimate shopping experience and it's just a short walk from the apartments. Nothing reveals the spirit of a country more than a market, so make sure you find time to visit one during your stay in Pafos. The main market in the Pafos–Ktima area is the covered municipal market known to the locals as the “Agora”. The market stalls are busy with locals buying their weekly food or essential supplies. Unlike local markets in towns the municipal market is open every day except Sundays.Supermarkets:The most popular supermarkets are: Papantoniou Supermarket near the harbour 2 minutes by car 12 minutes' walk, Garden of Eden 2 minutes by car 10 minutes' walk.Paphos itself consists of two towns, each with its very own character. Ktima on the cliff (Upper Paphos) and Kato Paphos by the sea (Lower Paphos). One town is virtually unchanged over the centuries and thoroughly Cypriot, while the other has expanded over the last decade from a sleepy fishing village and harbour, into a vibrant cosmopolitan resort which is expanding and improving. Kato Paphos, (in the archaeological park), you will find many fine mosaics and buildings from Greek and Roman periods, plus the Paphos Castle which is located on the edge of the Harbour. It was originally built as a Byzantine fort to protect the harbour. It was then rebuilt by the Lusignans in the thirteenth century after being destroyed in the earthquake of 1222. In 1570 it was dismantled by the Venetians. After capturing the island, the Ottomans restored and strengthened it. Throughout the ages it has seen many uses. It has served as a fortress, a prison and even a warehouse for salt during the British occupation of the island. More recently the castle serves as a backdrop to the annual open air Paphos cultural festival which takes place in September.It was declared a listed building in 1935 and represents one of the most distinctive landmarks of the city of Paphos. Several archaeological excavations have taken place to investigate its past.History:Close by, is the church of St. Paul where you can see the remains of the pillar to which St Paul was allegedly tied and whipped. Further down this road are the Tombs of the Kings where there are the mysterious vaults and caves, the underground tombs many of which date back to the 4th century BC, are carved out of solid rock, and are thought to have been the burial sites of Paphitic aristocrats and high officials up to the third century AD (the name comes from the magnificence of the tombs; no kings were in fact buried here). Some of the tombs feature Doric columns and frescoed walls. Archaeological excavations are still being carried out at the site. The tombs are cut into the native rock and at times imitated the houses of the living.The ancient Odeon lies in Kato Pafos, in the heart of the tourist area. It is a small 2nd century Odeon built entirely of well-hewn limestone blocks. Today it is used in the summer for musical and theatrical performances.Coast and Beaches:To the West there is Coral Bay one of the best sandy beaches of the region, it is located in Pegeia – easily reached by all means of transport and leads towards the unspoilt Akamas Peninsula, covers about 230 square km and is located on the western tip of Cyprus. It is an area of great natural beauty unaffected by development. The uniqueness of the area for Cyprus, and for the whole of the Mediterranean, is centered on its precious ecology. A short drive up the coast you could enjoy the almost deserted and truly idyllic Lara Beach in the Akamas National Park. The Lara Bay Turtle Conservation Station at Akamas is a small turtle beach just 15 minutes away from Paphos. The turtles are specially conserved at this beach and especially the Chelonia mydas species, which is in danger of extinction. There can be up to 50 nests at one time on this beach and it is recommended to watch where you step. Signs are shown and small circle open air cilindros are placed where suspected eggs lay. Great place for supivised children to see the small turtles as well as learn all about them. Heading North by car, is the route to Cedar Valley and the Troodos Mountains. A must for nature lovers, Cedar Valley in Paphos Forest is aptly named. There are over 200,000 cedars in this secluded and peaceful valley. There is an excellent highway which runs to all corners of Cyprus but the old coast road is the most scenic route. The route is peppered with many small but charming villages along the way. A drive along here past various ancient sites such as Aphrodite's Birthplace and Temple. The "Petra tou Romiou" area is one of the most beautiful coastlines in Cyprus, where, according to mythology, Aphrodite rose from the waves. The Greek name "Petra tou Romiou" ("the Rock of the Greek") is associated with the legendary Byzantine hero, Digenis Akritas, who, according to legend, kept the marauding Saracen Arabs at bay with his amazing strength. With one hand he was said to have grabbed hold of the Kyreneia mountain range thereby forming "Pentadaktylos", the Five Finger mountain, while with the other hand he heaved a huge rock and tossed it into the sea at the Saracens who were trying to land. The rock still remains and thus gave the region its name. The site is a stop on the Aphrodite Cultural route. Skiing:The Troodos mountains are accessible by car a 30-40 minute car drive, with snow January to March.Golf:Secret Valley Golf Club is situated not far from Paphos and even closer to Petra tou Romiou. Not surprisingly, Secret Valley plays through a valley, but this is no ordinary valley. It really is quite spectacular, with brightly-coloured rock formations, which change colour in different lights. The Aphrodite Hills Golf Club:Imagine a vision of sunny skies and world class sport, picture an undulating course dotted with olive and carob trees, manicured fairways and challenging pot bunkers overlooking the sea, a journey that begins with enthusiasm and ends in immense satisfaction. Aphrodite Hills sits atop 2 plateaus overlooking the Mediterranean coastlineHeading towards Limassol, taking in Curium, is delightful and is littered with the most beautiful views.: Curium was a city in Cyprus which endured from antiquity until the early Middle Ages. Curium is situated on the south shores of the island. Today the site lies within the Akrotiri Sovereign Base Area.Other Things to Note:Apartment is cleaned and bed linen/towels changed before and after the arrival/departure of guests.

This apartment is close to all amenities. Shops and bars just a stones throw away. The harbor is a little further and a car would be required although if you are keen walker it is doable. I have done it many times. However of an evening after a luxurious Mezedakia and a couple of beers a taxi might be required!
