A coastal city steeped in mythology, Paphos is made up of two parts – the Old Paphos, said to be the birthplace of the goddess Aphrodite, and the New Paphos, a bustling, modern harbour town. Not many places can be classed as an all-rounder destination, however, this south-west corner of Cyprus blends golden coastlines and a family-friendly resort with a world of history lying just behind it.
A landscape dotted with ancient churches, monasteries, tombs and baths is just waiting to be explored, and colonial neighbourhoods are like a step back in time. Paphos is a city so rich in culture that a holiday there will always be one to remember, whether you’re a beachgoer or a history buff!
Catacombs, medieval baths and the UNESCO-listed archaeological site are all touching distance from our luxurious villas in Paphos, an incredibly romantic harbour town where history comes to life.
Why visit Paphos?
- The Paphos Archaeological Site is one of the most important archaeological sites in Cyprus, and one of the reasons Paphos was named the European Capital of Culture back in 2017.
- Vivid azure seas lap white-sand beaches, making it the ultimate beach destination.
- Cyprus benefits from year-round warm weather, meaning you can have a Paphos holiday even in December!
