Paphos

Paphos Harbour

Paphos Harbour

The town of Paphos, which is situated at the western end of the island, has developed into a very popular holiday and residential area for overseas visitors, but still manages to retain much of its traditional character, due to the strict regulations concerning building. Paphos has a relatively smaller population compared to other towns in Cyprus.

Unesco listed archaeological sites, picturesque views and the prevailing sea breezes, which temper the climate throughout the year, make Paphos a very pleasant and prestigious residential location; proof of this is reflected in the increasing number of Europeans who select our area to purchase homes for holiday and permanent residence.

Paphos has its own International Airport conveniently located just 10 km east of the town, situated away from the residential areas, with regular flights to Europe. The new highway to Limassol, the main port and commercial centre (70 km away), which has opened in 2001, offers easy access to other parts of the island. Just a short drive from Paphos, you will find some of the most unspoilt scenery on the island, with its traditional villages, beautiful churches and monasteries, and idyllic life-style, which can be visited, as well as the Akamas Peninsula, an area of unique ecological interest.
