Where to stay in Cyprus

The vibrant and cosmopolitan coastal city of Limassol is renowned for its international mix of seaside hotels and fine dining. With plenty of tourist attractions and Cyprus' main wine producing area nearby, it's an easy place to spend a few days in style.

Limassol is also within striking distance of many places of historical significance. The Greco-Roman Kourion Theatre still offers al fresco performances in the summer and the ancient Kolossi Castle should keep the history buff in you interested for hours.

Paphos is the legendary birthplace of the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite, making it a great spot for couples and honeymooners. It's also one of the finest sightseeing spots in the whole Mediterranean. Oozing history and culture, it's not surprising the town itself is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

New Paphos is located just next door to Paphos and is home to a more modern holiday experience. The beach is lined with first rate, luxury hotels and it's all overlooked by Paphos Castle. Wherever you go in Cyprus, history is never far away.

Hide away from the crowds in the sleepy mountain village of Pissouri. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of all the tourist traps, this little village is the ideal secluded getaway. Perched up on the hill, you'll enjoy panoramic views and a quiet gentle stroll down to the even quieter beach.
