Investing in a luxury new-build villa in Paphos is the beginning of a beautiful adventure. Chancing on a fabulous new beach, restaurant or golf-course is the best bit when you own holiday property in Cyprus. Here are a few of Winkworth International’s favourites.
A stunning new villa in Paphos is the perfect holiday property investment
Paphos holiday property makes the ideal base for exploring other resorts and cities in Cyprus. So while there’s a five-star spa to die for on the doorstep of your Aphrodite Hills villa, you’ll also want to to drive north for the ultimate in luxury pampering. Here, you’ll find award-winning Thalassa Spa at the Anassa Hotel in Poli, where treatments harness therapeutic marine derivatives.
A drive to Poli, where rugged coastline meets verdant countryside, is rewarding for its natural beauty alone. If, however, you stay for the day, you’ll appreciate just why this Cypriot spa experience attracts rave reviews. From couples to expectant mothers, the spa-menu looks after everyone and treatments are administered in cool marble rooms leading to a peaceful Roman pool. A drink on the terrace with Chrysochou Bay views finishes your day off nicely.
Buy a new villa at the Venus Rock resort on the Petra tou Romiou coast for quality time on the golf course. Not just any old eighteen holes either, but the exclusive Jacklin designed Secret Valley course with a Trip Advisor certificate of excellence rating. Secret Valley has a reputation as one of the island’s most playable courses with the most hospitable club house.
If you’ve golfing guests to impress, owning a Venus Rock villa with pool means unfettered access to verdant fairways, sea views and exceptional on-site facilities including tennis courts and restaurants.
Explore Paphos harbour, where luxury yachts mingle with sailboats, great shopping and superb restaurants
An al fresco feast of sun-ripened produce and fresh fish might make dining-in a beautiful experience, but it won’t keep you at home every night with so many Cypriot restaurants to choose from.
Less luxe than the SMART kitchen of your dreams but equally unmissable, is Seven St. Georges in the village of Yeroskipou. Ten minutes from Paphos, this vine covered Greek tavern may look homespun but the organically grown mezze and local wines are the stuff of legend. Seven St Georges is a family business, where father and sons bring sublime dishes to your table until you can eat no more. Really, you’ve not lived until you’ve eaten here.

A shopping trip to the old town at Nicosia is a fascinating experience
For ornate rugs and traditional wood furniture, make the two hour journey to Nicosia old town (pictured above). Wandering numerous tiny shops and stopping for Cypriot coffee in this atmospheric corner of a divided capital is a fascinating experience.
For a reliable selection of european brands, there’s The Kings Avenue Mall in lower (Kato) Paphos. Designer boutiques mingle with quirky independent stores up in the old town (Ktima Paphos), and for authentic leather bags and jewellery, visit the daily market.
The Paphos coastline, home to the spectacular sight of Aphrodite’s Rock
Choose between two exclusive beach clubs when heading for the seafront from your Aphrodite Hills villa. Beach club style amenities also come as standard at Venus Rock, while the Sea Caves development on the Akamas peninsula is just a short walk from pretty Coral Bay.
When you finally leave your sun lounger, don’t forget to explore the spectacular Paphos coastline and the new marina at Limassol.
