Winding up through the banana plantations after a short drive along the coast road from Paphos brings you to Peyia where Villa Emelita is located on the hillside overlooking Coral Bay. Peyia is a very typical Cypriot village which has been developed over time to be a vibrant ‘mini-town’ offering great amenities. With many restaurants, tavernas, cafes, bars, shops, bakeries, butcheries, supermarkets, pharmacy, gym and other facilities all within 2-3km of each other, there really is no need to leave the village if you don’t want to. A beautiful ancient church forms the heart of the village while the narrow streets and alleyways are full of old and interesting houses adorned with colourful flowers and citrus trees. The village centre is still largely unspoilt with lively tavernas and friendly locals. You can also buy all your provisions including fresh meat and bread in the village stores; the early morning aroma of freshly baked bread, sweet and savoury local pastries and cakes coming from the Peyia bakery is almost too much to resist! For the more energetic types there is the local and newly opened ‘Tower Fitness Centre’.
Coral Bay with it’s beaches, shops and slightly more vibrant nightlife is just 2km away.
Things to do in the area include Paphos Bird Park (now Paphos Zoo), reptile park, horse riding, Akamas Peninsular & Lara Beach Nature Reserve (famous for turtles), hiking/walking, buggy safaris, 4 x 4 safaris, sea caves area, sailing and many more. Amusement and water parks in Paphos are also easily accessible from Peyia, as are numerous archaeological ruins such as the Tombs of the Kings and Paphos mosaics.
If you want to get out and explore some fantastic scenery, take a trip to the Akamas Peninsula, Polis, Latchi or even Troodos mountains. The Akamas is an untouched part of Cyprus with unspoilt coastline and traditional fish taverns in stunning seaside locations. Troodos is of course the main mountain range in Cyprus, not many people know that in the winter....you can ski!
Paphos combines ancient history with a cosmopolitan, modern tourist resort. The area by the coast is known as Kato Paphos and boasts a pretty little harbour and plenty of open air cafes and bars. Further inland is the old town of Paphos, known by the locals as Ktima. With its narrow streets, hustle and bustle, covered market and typically Cypriot atmosphere, it is well worth a visit. As a consequence, Paphos is on UNESCO's World Cultural Heritage list.
Cyprus is famous as the birth place of the goddess Aphrodite, Venus in Roman mythology. She is known as the Ancient Greek goddess of love and beauty. Legend says that she emerged from the sea at Aphrodite’s Rock in a surge of sea foam.
