Property and local area description
This self catering accommodation offers a home from home atmosphere, being located in an area of market gardens, with a quiet peaceful atmosphere amongst the orange groves. The local villages offer many amenities including Supermarkets, banks, shops and good quality bars & restaurants, whilst only 15 minutes away is the centre of Paphos and the excellent beach area of Coral Bay. This makes it a great base to explore Aphrodites Island and the attractions in the surrounding area. The climate is pleasant and warm, with temperatures varying between 60ºF to 90ºF, you can holiday on this beautiful island at any time of year and enjoy a relaxing break. A Cypriot warm and friendly welcome awaits you. There is a nearby supermarket and a bus service between Paphos Old Town and Coral Bay, but the use of a hire car is recommended for your convenience and for ease of seeing the Island and its historical sites.
The small complex of apartments and townhouses are built to a very high standard, centred on the communial pool and sun terrace with sun beds. There is a communal wooden pergola with picnic tables and benches in the garden area. The house has its own allocated undercover parking space. The house has views to the coast and surrounding area.
The house has a patio leading from the lounge and balconies from each bedroom, with views over the pool and gardens and the orchards towards the sea at Coral Bay.
The house has been furnished to a very high standard. There are two large bedrooms (I double, 1 twin) with plenty of built in storage. There are two bathrooms, one upstairs with bath and shower and one downstairs with a shower. Both have WCs.

Car hire is strongly recommended to facilitate visiting the local area, and when considered against taxi fares to and from the airport, is not expensive. Cypriots drive on the right, a legacy from the islands historical links with the UK.
The town of Paphos is included in the official UNESCO list of Cultural Heritage sites. It is located on the Southwest coast, ranking as one of Cyprus’ most popular resorts combining a wealth of ancient sites, excellent properties and plenty of local flavour. Compared to other seaside towns like Limassol, Paphos exudes a much slower pace of life and has always been particularly popular with British visitors. Paphos is actually made up of two ‘twin-towns’. High on the hilltop, ‘Ktima’ is a typical large town with thriving local shops, taverns, interesting buildings, churches and museums. In contrast, ‘Kato Paphos’ is the tourist area, which has developed by the waterfront providing visitors and residents with a very long promenade lined with masses of shops and taverns. Side streets too are packed with bars, discos, clubs, restaurants and more shops, all patronised by locals and tourists alike.
There is plenty to explore and for superb beaches Coral Bay, only a 15 minute drive from Empa ranks as one of the best in the area. There are two nearby golf courses and plenty of sporting facilities and for the evenings there are a multitude of restaurants to choose from. Further afield there are the Troodos Mountains, Paphos Forest and Akamas for those that wish to enjoy the wilder side of Cyprus.
