Cyprus is a lovely island, the people are very friendly, english is spoken throughout and the sun shines 340 days of the year. Some of the other things we like about Cyprus is that they drive on the left just like us Brits, so when hiring a car it is very easy to drive. The electrical sockets are all 3 pin also, so no need for any adaptors.
Since going over to Euros in January 2008 everything has transferred smoothly and prices are competitive for eating out (full English breakfast for around 1.50 euros for example). Evening menus include set 3 courses for around 10 Euros with a free aperitif at the end.
The area where the apartment is based is Kato Paphos. This is central for exploring the region. Many people enjoy the Harbour where a redevelopment programme was completed in May 2008. The Harbour area has been pedestrianised and shops and restaurants revamped. There are many boats and yachts moored with restaurants overlooking. From the harbour area with its historic Turkish Fort there is a gorgeous walk around the headland (again newly paved) to a pleasant beach bar adjacent to Tombs of the Kings area. The paved walkway extends along the coast to Chlorakas and beyond the sea on one side and the Hotels, Bars, Restaurants and gardens on the other, along a pleasant tree lined area.
We have had a very good response from people going over to our apartment for holidays from one or two weeks or long term lets onwards. Maureen and Gordon Newhouse from Warrington came to our apartment for a long term Winter let. They wrote to us telling us how they enjoyed themselves and have become yet another recommendation, complimenting us on our apartment layount, furnishings etc. They enjoyed the locality so much that they have decided to lease a bungalow for a further 12 months! and have now moved into a complex with their own villa long term.
Over the years from 2007 to the present time of 2016, we have had lots of familes and couples, from young to the older generation, all very nice people and they have all enjoyed their stay whether for a quiet relaxing holiday or a more adventurous one, however we prefer to keep it for couples and familes.
Nice to get good feedback - we endeavour to ensure that the trend will continue.
