Make a holiday rental home or villa in St George, Cyprus your home away from home

Known locally as Agios Georgios, St George is a small but attractive fishing harbour situated on the south-west coast of Cyprus in the Pegia region. With a quiet sandy stretch and high-quality sea view holiday rental villas, St George is a great location for a relaxing break, but also ideally located for exploring the surrounding area, and offers a quieter alternative to the busier resorts of Paphos and the Coral Bay area, both of which are just a short drive away.

Things to do in St George, Cyprus

Most of the holiday rental villas in St George are just a short walk from the sea, and the clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea make for great swimming. Alternatively you can laze on the beach, or enjoy a snack or meal in one of the cafe-bars that overlook the bay.

The harbour area is where many of the amenities are located, including bar-restaurants that overlook the unspoilt serenity of the Akamas Peninsula. As you may expect from a fishing village, many of these restaurants specialise in seafood, and a good-quality meal is perhaps best enjoyed when watching the sunset over the Med.

The Akamas peninsula is an environmentally protected nature reserve just a few kilometres to the west. Covering an area of 230 square kilometres, the thick woodland and rugged terrain make an excellent location for hikers, walkers and climbers. Other attractions in Akamas include a loggerhead turtle sanctuary and the Baths of Aphrodite – where the Greek goddess is said to have bathed.

Places to visit on holiday in St George, Cyprus

With many places to explore near St George, and relatively low-priced car rental, it makes sense to hire a vehicle and explore the area during your stay. St George lies adjacent to Coral Bay, a popular tourist area famous for its excellent stretch of sandy beach. With clear warm waters, water sports and swimming can be enjoyed, and there are also several bars, cafes and restaurants to pick from. Also consider a trip to the quiet resort of Polis, and the well-established resort of Paphos - which is twenty minutes away and has even more tourist facilities, an excellent nightlife and a historical old town.

Weather in St George, Cyprus

St George enjoys a Mediterranean climate. This means hot summers with plenty of sunshine and little rainfall. July and August are the hottest months with an average temperature of 30C, but also when humidity is at its peak. Although rainfall increases between November and March, temperatures are still pleasant during this period.

Flights to St George, Cyprus

The recently-revamped Paphos International Airport (PFO) is around 30 kilometres from St George, and although it is only the country’s second largest airport (after Larnaca) still receives many direct flights from the UK. Thomson Airways, Thomas Cook Airlines and easyJet are just some of the providers. There are several car hire firms to choose from within the airport, but better prices may be obtained by booked before you fly.

First class villa!

We loved this villa! It was exactly as described; very premium quality throughout and lots of space for family meals. The pool and hot tub were both brilliant too for days when we didn't feel like going to the beach! We will definitely stay here again next year!

Excellent. Clean, bright, well equipped.

We have stayed with Cyprus Villa Retreats on a previous holiday at a different property (El Capitan/Captain's Villa). We were very impressed on that occasion with both the standard of the property and the service provided by the company. On this visit we were, if anything even more impressed. Villa Sophia is in a superb location. The views from the balconys are beautiful and the sunsets (and the night time electric storms) were spectacular. Furnishings were comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. The TV service provides access to hundreds of English language channels and a huge selection of movies. The villa is within easy walking distance of a number of bar/restaurant/tavernas and only a short drive to the resort of Coral Bay with its huge selection of eaterys. Food shopping is easy with Phillipos supermarket about 4 miles away. The supermarket provides an excellent range of food, drinks, hardware etc and will, free of charge, deliver your shopping to the villa. Cyprus Villa Retreats provides a great service to the renter. A face-to-face welcome on the first day where they explain the finer detail of the villa and its equipment. They can arrange car rental, spa treatments, and much much more. Property managers Mark and Mike are available 24/7 for any issues that may occur and also ensure that the pool and hot tub receive regular checks. In summary, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Sophia and cannot fault the quality of service provided. We do not hesitate in recommending Cyprus Villa Retreats

Wonderful holiday location

5 of 5
Fabulous villa with all the amenities provided in a peaceful location and only 5 min walk to nearby family run taverna. The pool is well secluded, all the bedrooms are of a nice size and the whole property is very clean and well maintained. A couple of issues that we had were dealt with very quickly (blocked bathroom waste but nothing major) and professionally resolved by the management owner. Would definitely recommend as we are considering staying there again.
