With a population of less than 300 and the guarantee of privacy during the whole of your stay, it is no wonder that travellers in the know decide to opt to stay in the small village of Letymbou whilst on the island of Cyprus. A Letymbou holiday is ideal for those who want to get a glimpse of the traditional Cypriot way of life and plenty of tranquillity so that they can recharge their batteries before having to return home. Of course, a Letymbou holiday rental house is still in close proximity to the major city of Paphos and so travellers can still enjoy sightseeing and entertainment should they feel the need for a busier environment.
The emphasis of a Letymbou holiday is to simply relax and take in the beautiful surroundings of the countryside and hills around the village. Should you be feeling energetic there are some activities available in Letymbou and the surrounding area including swimming, fishing, small game hunting, cycling, hiking, golf, tennis, horse riding, bird watching, sailing and water skiing.
If you decide to head out and explore some other areas of the island whilst on a Letymbou holiday then it is recommended that you stop off in the largest village on the island, Emba. Emba has been a settlement on the island since the time of the Byzantine rulers and as a result there are several monuments in the village dating from this time, including the church of Panayia Chryseleoussis which was built in the 12th century. Emba also has a mosaic laboratory which is a huge draw for visitors to the island each year.
Booking a Letymbou holiday rental house means that you will be able to enjoy some fabulous weather, with a Mediterranean climate meaning that the village offers mild winters and very warm summers. Most travellers stay in Letymbou from June through to September when it can reach as warm as 30 degrees Celsius during the daylight hours. The lowest temperatures usually occur in January and February when it can drop to around 17 degrees Celsius, which may be more comfortable for those who don’t like too much heat. There is very little rainfall during the year and the village sees approximately 11 inches of rain during 12 months.
Travellers on a Letymbou holiday are most likely to arrive at Paphos Airport (PFO) which is approximately 9 miles away from the village. Travellers will discover that there are a number of air operators offering regular, affordable flights to the island include British Airways, Cyprus Airways, Thomson Flights, easyJet and Jet2.com. Passengers can depart the UK from numerous airports including Doncaster (DSA), East Midlands (EMA), Glasgow (GLA), Heathrow (LHR) and Manchester (MAN).
