Cyprus has an overwhelming cultural heritage. Wherever you travel on the island you'll find ancient monuments and sites, churches and monasteries depicting over 9,000 years of history. Its open-air museums are filled with relics including a wealth of Greek temples, Roman mosaics and 15th-century frescoes. Among Cyprus' top attractions are its Roman settlements, castle dungeons and old city walls. On your Cyprus villa holidays, a visit to Aphrodite's Rock is a must - just a few kilometres west of Pissouri, it marks the spot where the legendary goddess emerged from the waves.
Visitors flock to Cyprus to explore the island's natural splendours, from hiking, windsurfing and sailing, to horse riding at sunset. For a true look at traditional life head to the wonderful rural villages, with their authentic stone-clad houses nestled in the foothills of the mountain. The more adventurous, and those on family Cyprus villa holidays, can explore the island by bike or by boat, take a jeep excursion or play a round of golf at one of Cyprus' three championship golf courses. Small shingle coves offer magnificent snorkelling where you can explore rich underwater sea-life.
Traditional town squares play host to local restaurants, shops and bars offering a real taste of Cyprus' culture with live Bouzouki music and dancing. A good selection of tavernas, bars and small nightclubs can be found in the region's larger, more cosmopolitan beachside resorts. Here, you'll be able to dine and dance until the early hours.

Milton keynes Family (the eldest child is at school)
Beautiful large pool Self cleaning. Did not have to clean bugs.amazing untouched sea view and to the front and mountain view behind. Very nice villa owner. Brought us extra clean towels very welcoming and polite.
Only thing I that would make perfect is being gated for protection. Nice space to let the kids run around but couldn’t relax as not protected and every day had people walking in to deliver leaflets and menus to promote there restaurants. Whist relaxing by the pool found this very frustrating we choose a secluded villa to get away.

Nightlife is not applicable other than just going for a meal which was fine every time we went out . Loved the slower pace of life. Most folk were pleasant and hospitable. Loved the variety of landscape coastline through to stunning mountains
Our fellow Brits abroad can be an embarrassment at times, sorry Cyprus.
