Wear comfortable shoes, a sun hat and take your camera; you are now ready to adventure into the vibrant heart of the Old Town and meet the locals.

This is a guaranteed sensory adventure one that will titillate all of the five senses, from the aromas of fresh herbs, fruits, spices, and bees wax candles, the opportunity to savour the taste of our award winning wines, and local delicacies.

The Old Town boasts a superb indoor market which satisfies those who enjoy a touch of retail therapy, with stalls packed with jewellery, clothes, shoes, pashminas, bags, lacework, and holiday souvenirs.

Outdoors there is a veritable cornucopia of fruit and vegetable stalls all manned by local villagers who travel early into the market to sell their home grown wares, here you can buy everything from local bananas, oranges, spicy rocket, and our marvellous dried wild oregano which will delight guests if you bring a jar of that home as a prime ingredient to the Sunday barbeque.

Paphos (or Pafos), a city rich in history & culture, is a gem of Western Cyprus. There is archaeological evidence supporting the city's existence from the Neolithic period. Believed to be the birthplace of Greek Goddess of love and beauty ‘Aphrodite’, Paphos proudly boasts the remains of villas, palaces, theatres, fortresses and tombs that belong to Classical, Hellenistic and Roman periods. A site with such remarkable architectural and historic value is an ornament to the city and thus has been included in UNESCO’s list of world heritage sites as a natural and cultural treasure. Paphos, roughly divided into Old Paphos and New Paphos, is also famous for its sun-kissed, white sand beaches. The city was valued as a major port and the capital of Cyprus during Roman times. Later, when the British colonized the island, the city started losing its value, especially after Nicosia gained importance. Today, this small harbour has slowly and steadily, emerged as an attractive tourist destination.
