Argaka is an inland village set in an elevated position overlooking Chrysochous Bay and the Akamas mountains.
It is approximately 6 km from the quaint historic town of Polis which is approximately 35 km from Paphos.
This area of western Cyprus enjoys a staggering 340 days of sunshine a year. Cyprus is regarded as a 'year round Island' so the temperatures are very pleasant even in winter rarely dropping below 18 degrees.
The Polis and Latchi area also benefits from cooling coastal breezes so in summer months the temperature
is not as hot as places like the capital Nicosia which is positioned inland. There are many things to do locally such as lovely walks through pine forests to see irrigation dams/long walks along uncrowned beaches only minutes away. The fishing harbour of Pomos with its renowned sea food taverna is also a short drive away. As is Latchi
with its picturesque marina and harbour front restaurants. This area is also renowned for its local wine.
Quiet beaches nearby
Golf: Cyprus currently has numerous golf courses.
A new course(Elea) has just opened in Paphos designed by Nick Faldo.
The nearest course is at Tsada (MInthisshills) approx half-hour drive.Also its sister course -Secret Valley
is only approximately 15 minutes from Paphos
A Jack Nicholas designed course is to be built soon approx 2 km away from the House in Argaka at the new Limni.
