Location description from owner

The Paphos District

Akoursos is a small farming village with market gardening, olives and vines. There are 10 houses and one taverna. Kathikas ,about 7 klms away is a major wine producing area with one of the best red wines made in Cyprus ( "Ayios Oniforous", made by Sterna Winery). There are about 5 traditional restaurants in Kathikas serving Cyprus style food and mezza.The climate is excellent as Cyprus is in the south west corner of the Mediterranean sea, near to Egypt and is therefore much warmer in winter than Portugal or Spain. In summer,cool breezes blow across the island off the sea . There are good beaches near to the bungalow and the Akamas nature reserve about 10klms by car.

Kathikas

On the coast , 7 klms away,is Coral Bay , with a variety of restaurants, cocktail bars,pubs, sports bars, banks, internet cafes and shops.Within 15 minutes drive are the beaches of Coral Bay and the Akamas ,a "national park" area with no developments ,roads are not paved and a bit bumpy ,but the area is beautiful and wild and should be visited.There is a Zoo and a golf range nearby and 2 golf courses within 30 minutes drive.Excursions to Limassol, Nicosia, Troodos mountains, Latchi and the surrounding villages are easily done in one day. Trips to North Cyprus are also possibleSkiing in Troodos mountains in January and February (Europe's best kept secret).
