Tala, 5km from Paphos, is a very fashionable area of Cyprus, partly due to its prime location in the hills overlooking Paphos. It is the perfect choice for those who want to stay near the facilities and excitement of Paphos, whilst surrounded by the lush, peaceful countryside of Cyprus.
Although Paphos is just a few miles downhill from Tala, the village has got all the shops, facilities and amenities needed, so you never have to visit Paphos if you do not feel like it whilst staying in a Tala apartment or property. Walking around the pedestrianised streets and stopping for a coffee or beer in one of the many restaurants and cafes overlooking the sea is a wonderful way to take in the atmosphere, get your bearings and relax when you arrive at your apartment or villa in Tala.
A Tala apartment is just 10 minutes from the Tsada Golf Course. The challenging 18 hole course is not the only one open to the public in the area, as there are a further three golf courses within a short distance, including the famous golf resort of Aphrodite Hills.
However, visiting Tala would not be complete if you didn’t visit the remarkable sand beaches which surround Paphos. The coast is inundated with coves and inlets, the vast majority of which are lined with a thick layer of fine, golden sand. The main tourist beaches in the area have mostly been awarded the respected European Blue Flag, and there are plenty of spots on which to have a secluded lazy day on the beach. For the energetic, almost every source of water sports fun can be found in the Tala/Paphos region without any trouble, especially scuba diving, sailing and windsurfing.
An apartment in Tala is the perfect base for exploring western Cyprus and all the treasures which it holds. Aphrodite’s Rock, the mythological rising place of the Greek goddess of love, is a huge tourist attraction, and symbols of Cyprus’ turbulent past can be seen in a variety of locations, dating from a variety of eras, can easily be visited from a Tala property.
Paphos town is a wonderfully diverse holiday destination. Whether you enjoy exhilarating sport by day and hectic nightlife during the evening, or a quiet, cultural holiday, Paphos will answer your desires. The historical monuments which adorn the area are simply extraordinary, from the Temple of Aphrodite to the Tombs of the Kings or the Roman mosaics of Kato-Paphos.
A Tala property can be taken at any time of year as there are an average of 330 days of sunshine every year. The Mediterranean climate of Cyprus means that the hot summers last from May until the end of September, boasting temperatures of up to 38˚C in August. Even in January, it is very rare for temperatures to dip below 10˚C.
Paphos International Airport (PFO) is located within just a few miles of a Tala apartment, meaning that you can be settling into your property in Tala within just a few hours of leaving the UK. British Airways provide flights to Tala from 18 airports across the British Isles, so there should be a convenient and easy option for you.
