PAPHOS

In view of its historical and archaeological importance, the capital city of ancient Cyprus, Paphos (Pafos), is on UNESCO’s Cultural Heritage List. Paphos area is also famous for its
natural beauty and was therefore named the birthplace of Aphrodite by the Ancient Greeks.

But Paphos is more than just history, it is also a place of unusual natural beauty. There are a variety of ways to experience its welcoming nature, trekking, on safari, cruising, scuba diving, or

 



diving, or simply by leisurely driving around. Paphos has innumerable restaurants, offering the discerning visitor everything from hearty local to refined international cuisine. There’s opera under the stars, against the dramatic backdrop of a medieval castle overlooking Paphos Harbour, and the various summer music festivals. And there’s dancing to the latest beat, thanks to a veritable constellation of nightspots dotting the town. Paphos is an Aladdin’s cave of wonders.

WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE
FROM THE HOTEL


The Azia Resort & Spa is located in Chlorakas, a picturesque village in Paphos, on the Tombs of the Kings road leading to Coral Bay, just 6km from the centre of Paphos. Chlorakas, from a Greek word meaning “green,” is a coastal village full of history. As farmers here till their land, they often unearth stone implements, axe-heads and pottery which suggest this was the site of a Neolithic settlement. The remains of Rigaina's aqueduct, between here and the sea, are probably those of a long aqueduct that once brought water from the Mavrokolympos River to Paphos.

A number of beautiful and interesting places can be reached on foot from the hotel. Directly opposite the hotel is a Golf Practice range. Paphos Golf Driving Range & Academy is like none other in Cyprus with its unique, professionally designed landscape intended to make each and every golfer feel like they are on a real golf course. With 27 hidden bays and 5 flag target greens ready and waiting for you, Paphos Golf Driving Range & Academy has everything from the beginner to the expert golfer.

It is only a ten-minute walk to the Water sports at a nearby beach. Few countries in the world are blessed with such a clement climate as Cyprus, allowing so much diversity in water sport activities. Paphos is the ideal place for the water sports enthusiast, with a full gamut of fun on offer throughout the year. Water sports sites have facilities for water-skiing, windsurfing, sailing, canoeing, pedalling, parascending, yachting, jet skiing, and much more.

windsurfing, sailing, canoeing, pedalling, parascending, yachting, jet skiing, and much more.

Ten minutes’ walking from the hotel will take you to the ancient village of Lemba. Excavations at Lemba have brought to life an important settlement of the Chalcolithic Age. Near the site replicas of five houses from that period have been reconstructed using the materials and building methods used in Chalcolithic times (3900-2500 BC). The Chalcolithic settlement site is a stop on the Aphrodite Cultural Route. Lemba is also currently a pretty artists’ village that attracts art students from all over the world. A seaside walk of half an hour, three-quarters if you take your time, will bring you to the Tombs of the Kings. Spread over a vast area, these impressive underground buildings date back to the 4th century BC. The tombs are carved out of solid rock, and some are decorated with Doric columns. The magnificence of the structures gave the locality its name.

Right in front of the hotel you can take the Scenic Pathway. It starts at Potima, an area just outside of Paphos. It is 12 km long and ideal for walking, jogging, or bicycling (bicycles, including those with children’s seats, are available at the hotel for a small fee). This beautiful pathway goes all the way to the Harbour Castle, passing through the Mosaics and archaeological sites as well as Kato Paphos. Only five minutes from
the Azia, along this pathway, you will be able to stop and visit the nearby St. George’s chapel.
