Mayfair Gardens Apartments

In a peaceful location but still close to quaint Paphos old town, Mayfair Gardens Apartments is a beautiful low-rise, white-washed property. It has two lovely pools, another one for the little ones and a buffet restaurant catering for all meals. There’s a kids club in summer, and volleyball, aqua aerobics and table tennis. It has a gym and sauna, too. The entertainment includes bingo, karaoke and live shows, and if you want to venture out further, the old town and harbour are only a 20-minute walk away.

Overview of Paphos

Cobbled streets, cosy cafes and a gorgeous harbour area to relax and watch the world go by: Paphos really does make your holidays to Cyprus memorable. There are restaurants and bars aplenty, oodles of ancient architecture to explore and the long sun-drenched summer days are to die for. What’s not to love about this place? The beaches have a lot going on, too, and life down at the beach bars is full of energy. If you’re staying at the Mayfair Gardens Apartments, all the magic of the old town is just a short walk away. Perfect.

Things to do in Paphos

Beach days, nights on Bar Street, shopping at the market or maybe a mosey down to Vouni Panayia Winery. It’s all here if you want it. The harbour area is brimming with lovely bars and eateries, and Coral Bay is a top beach – just a 10-minute drive from Paphos and a similar distance from Mayfair Gardens Apartments. There’s plenty going on down there and the sands are wonderful. If you’re up for culture, the Paphos Aphrodite Festival is on every September. This epic operatic show features orchestral performances in a truly jaw-dropping harbour-side setting. It was good enough for Aphrodite, allegedly, so it should do the job for you. The old town is a wonderful place to explore, and it’s worth it for the views alone. If you’re just in Paphos for some well-earned tranquillity, you’ll find that in abundance here, too.

Resort Summary

Not many places could define Cyprus and its long history quite as well as Paphos, which is located on the southwest coast of the island.

A rich thread of history is woven into every part of Paphos, and it shows in the architecture and outlook of the city’s people. It’s said that the Greek goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite, once called the city home. Her mythic touch can also be felt in nearby sites like Amathus Bay, where a temple still stands in her honour.

There are places all around that demonstrate why the city’s been chosen as European Capital of Culture 2017. Such as Paphos Castle and the Randi Gorge in Aphrodite Hills, where Aphrodite is said to have risen from the sea. These landmarks of a bygone era have to be seen to be believed.
