Experience the Paphos District in holiday lettings

Reasons to choose Paphos District holiday rentals this year? They ooze from the shadowy Tombs of the Kings in the archaeological dig sites and glimmer with the wave-lapped sands of Agos Georghios and Polis. They creep with the rare sea turtles up the pebbles of the Akamas Peninsula and bubble in the mystic baths of the goddess Aphrodite. They swirl with incense in the Byzantine churches of the Troodos Mountains. They sizzle with the lemon-doused haloumi in the marina cantinas. They sit tight by the poolsides or in the shade of a palm. They party on Bar Street and the beaches.

The mythical past of Cyprus comes to a head in Paphos District. Glimpses of the babbling waterfall pools where the goddess of love, Aphrodite, is said to have bathed can be had between the fig trees and grottoes of the Akamas Peninsula National Park. So can safaris, with rare sea turtles and sailing trips to lonely coves where there's not another soul in sight. Back in Paphos town, it's all about the vast Paphos Archaeological Park. Even UNESCO has tagged its Roman ruins and Greek villas, its theatres and spooky royal tombs, as outstanding.
