Peyia, a typical Cypriot village, is nestled in the picturesque rocky coastline of Paphos Cyprus, with great access to the best beach on the island. Peyia is a marvellous place to submerge yourself in all that is best about Cyprus; the culture, food, relaxed atmosphere, spectacular beaches and stunning scenery are all to be enjoyed in full from a Peyia villa. The whitewashed village is on the most picturesque stretch of coast in Cyprus, and is a favourite with conservationists due to its unspoilt landscape, and slow pace of life.
The traditional lively tevernas and village stores sell fresh, traditional foods at a fraction of the price of the tourist resorts. However, if the peace and tranquillity of life from your Peyia holiday villa is too relaxing, there are plenty of options to get the adrenaline flowing again. From a Peyia holiday rental, trips to go paragliding, go carting or climbing are easy to find, or the beautiful beaches of Coral Bay and the endless water sports available are only a few minutes away.
There are also a couple of cultural gems in Peyia. The mosaic floors of the Christian basilicas and villas in Peyia are spectacular, and the Roman tombs on the outskirts of the village are well worth the walk from your Peyia holiday rental.
Taking a Peyia villa has often been used as a perfect base for exploring western Cyprus. The spectacular landscapes of the wild Akamas Peninsula, deserted beaches, Aphrodite's Baths and hills of the Troodos Mountains.
Paphos Town is 15km from Peyia. It is a bustling town with a wealth of beaches, historical and archaeological sites (around the famous Kato-Paphos region of the town), a large local market and a huge number of restaurants, bars and clubs.
Coral Bay boasts the best beach in Cyprus. Being just 1.5km from Peyia, taking a Peyia self catering holiday villa gives you the flexibility to enjoy the best beach in Cyprus and return to the timeless Cypriot village in the evening.
With 330 days of sunshine every year, Peyia is a great place for a tranquil holiday in the sun. Peyia is the only place on the island warm enough to grow bananas, and even the temperatures in winter are very mild, staying above 15°C for much of the time.
