    Forge a holiday to remember in Paphos

    Paphos is the sort of bustling all-rounder that family travellers dream of. It's a town of two parts – Ktima Paphos, the upper-level area, is quiet, serene and indelibly local, while Kato Paphos, also known as Lower Paphos, is laden with buzzing bars, halloumi-sizzling grills and fridge magnet-touts – and one of the most knock-out archaeological dig sites of Europe. You can forge whatever sort of trip you want, here. Visions of haunting tombs and Roman mosaics? No problem. Lazy days in luxurious Paphos holiday rentals with a pool? Easy. Heady nights of karaoke and Turkish meze? Hope you're hungry. Beach-hopping up the Cyprus coast? Go get 'em.

    Happy-go-lucky Paphos

    If you're leaning more towards a lazy, sun-soaked holiday, then Paphos holiday rentals with a pool are a great place to start. Just picture yourself bobbing on an inflatable, sipping pina coladas from the on-site bar, or delving into a good book, with views of the Cypriot coast stretching into the distance. At night, summer strolls down hopping Bar Street promise foam parties and fancy-dress shindigs, while the pulsing marina walk has countless Greek gyros outlets and local halloumi grills to keep the taste buds tingling.

    Paphos through the ages

    Culture oozes from every crack in the hammam walls of Ktima Paphos, every dust-drenched pit in the lower town's ancient dig sites. You'll absolutely want to catch the Paphos Archaeological Park. It's up there with the Acropolis and the Roman Forum, thanks to its sheer wealth of painted mosaics and ruined temples. The Tombs of the Kings are a highlight, where a vast necropolis dating from the 4th century BC has been revealed. Then there's little Paphos Castle, spinning tales of Byzantine history and Venetian invasions.

    Paphos, where summer is stretched

    Paphos is so far south there's a semi-tropical edge to its climate. The winter months of November, December and January can get rainy, giving way to summers that have not a single drop for months. Sunseekers will want to make the most of that by booking their Paphos holiday rentals close to the beaches, or with pools, at times like June, July and August. You should also be pretty safe in spring – April and May – and autumn – in September and October.

    From cedars to sandy bays in Paphos

    Paphos hugs a headland that juts out of the far south-western edge of Cyprus. The upper town sits perched on some low hills, before the real rises of the Troodos Mountains begin behind it, poking upwards and upwards until being consumed by the evergreen cedars and firs of the Paphos Forest – day trips there, mean glimpses of raptors and mysterious Orthodox monasteries. Meanwhile, Lower Paphos is the beginning of the west coast, which runs around glimmering rocks to reveal pretty, crescent-shaped Coral Bay and flower-backed Laourou Beach.
