About Paphos

About Paphos

In this section you will find useful information about living in Paphos and the surrounding areas including the suburbs and villages of the Paphos District. Here you will find some information on the history of beautiful Paphos, which contains several UNESCO world heritage sites due to its rich cultural inheritance, as well as further information about living in the areas which we provide properties for rental in Paphos.

You will probably have read that Petra Tou Romiou in Paphos, Western Cyprus was the birthplace of the Greek Goddess, Aphrodite. And the chances are you will also know that Paphos is steeped in history, with many famous ancient ruins and sites -including tombs, mosaics, caves and museums. So much so, that UNESCO has added Paphos to the World Cultural Heritage List.

But did you know that Paphos is actually divided into two areas? These are known as Paphos itself - which is the town and main residential area - and Kato Paphos, located on the sea front, where the main hotels are. By the way, if you see "Paphos", spelt "Pafos", it is the same place - just different spellings.

Without a doubt, the central point is the delightful fishing harbour, surrounded by tavernas, restaurants and coffee shops. This area is also the home of the famous Paphos fort, which was built in 1952 on the site of an earlier medieval castle.

If you prefer beautiful beaches where you can relax and watch the world go by, then you will be spoilt for choice. And, if you are interested in art, there are a myriad of local artists and studios. In October each year, you can visit artists in their workplace during "Open Studios". See www.openstudioscy.com for further information.

If you like shopping, The Municipal Market - built in 1920 in Paphos old town - will definitely be for you. Open Monday to Saturday, you will find traditional local goods available, as well as the usual duty-free shops. Most of the market is inside. Outside, there is a small fruit and vegetable market.

Scuba diving is well catered for – Paphos has some intriguing sites to explore. And if you are a golfer, you will find excellent courses nearby at Tsada, Aphrodite Hills and Secret Valley. What's more, a brand new course, designed by Nick Faldo, Elea Golf recently opened in 2010 in Geroskipou; about 20 minutes drive from the harbour.

About Paphos
How about getting to Paphos? Well, very proudly, Paphos opened its brand new International Airport in November 2008. What's more, new airport bus services have been launched. These not only service Paphos and Larnaca airports, but also go to all the main hotels along the coast road, from Geroskipou to Coral Bay . These trips only cost a few euros – so you no longer have to use expensive taxis! You might like to visit www.pafosbuses.com for further information.

If you are wondering what the climate is like in Paphos, well - compared to other areas like Nicosia, Larnaca and Limassol - it's the warmest area in the winter, and the coolest in the summer. 
 
Finally, the laid-back lifestyle and year round warm, sunny climate really do make Paphos a perfect place to live. And you won't find a better way to end each day than watching the glorious sunsets. Pure magic.
