With 326 days of sunshine (or thereabouts) it’s not surprising Cyprus is so popular. With the warm Mediterranean lapping the sun-kissed beaches, many visitors come to just spend time relaxing by the sea.
If you want to explore though, Paphos, found on Cyprus’ west coast, is steeped in history and home to ancient Roman mosaics and early Christian churches. The Ancient Odeon is one of the most stunning archaeological sites in Cyprus – and is extraordinarily still in use today, hosting live musical and theatrical performances.
South-east from Paphos, about a 30-minute drive away, you’ll find the quieter village of Pissouri where we have a wide choice of hotels. Here you can find lush rolling emerald hills, the perfect backdrop to the numerous Blue Flag beaches, and scenic restaurants and bars.
For the more active, Troodos Mountains – Cyprus’ biggest mountain range is the perfect alternative to lazy days at the beach. The mountains are home to Troodos National Forest Park where you can find lots of wildlife, including rare native birds and plants.
