Another legend says that if you swim around the rock three times under a full moon, you'll find true love. In Greco-Roman times Paphos was the island's capital, and it is famous for the remains of the Roman Governor's palace, where extensive, fine mosaics are a major tourist attraction.

Everything from booking to flying home went smoothly! Great communication with Mark before, during and after holiday! Mark arranged a taxi for our arrival and departure which cost 40 euros each way! The apartment was lovely and clean on arrival, very spacious and modern, the a/c and fans were a god send as it was very hot during our stay! Marina(the bar owner) showed us around on arrival and explained how things worked and where things were, she is a very friendly lady and nothing is too much trouble for her, we arrived quite late and she invited us to the bar on site for something to eat and drink, even though the bar stopped serving food at 11pm she prepared a meal for us! The pool is very clean and has plenty of loungers and parasols, the bar is reasonably priced, the food is good too! There was entertainment on a couple of nights, aswell as a pool table, dart board and pc if you want to use it, you can get WiFi too! We hired a car for 4 days and visited the Aphrodite water park, Troodos Mountains, Adonis Bath and Agios Georgios beach, the local bus service is frequent and cheap to use to visit Paphos Harbour and Coral Bay! A short walk from the complex and you'll find lots of restaurants and bars, check out Karlinas, food is very nice and the staff are really friendly! All in all we had a fantastic time and are definitely booking again soon! Thanks to Mark for the use of your beautiful apartment, our holiday was amazing, my husband, 3 young kids and myself had a fab holiday X

Peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

Found everything as described. The apartment was clean and tidy and there is plenty of contact from owners. The staff in the onsite bar are very helpful and the food is of a very good standard.

The bus service is very good and cheap so Coral Bay and Paphos are easily accessible and bus stop about 5 mins walk away.

All in all a very enjoyable holiday in a nice apartment and the added bonus we virtually had the place to ourselves so no worries about the pool beds.

Nice accommodation for travellers on a budget

  • 5 of 5

Nice apartment a bit outside of Paphos. Property was very much as described; no complaints there.

Cheap bus service runs frequently both into Paphos and North towards Coral Bay. It's a useful mode of transport if you don't have a car.

Excellent communication from the owners. The staff onsite were helpful and accommodating. The bar/restaurant on the development was very good value. Would recommend.

Really Lovely time

  • 5 of 5

Came to Mark and Sofia's apartment with my wife and 2 year old son in May 2009 for one week.

Mark and Sofia were fantastic at arranging everything before we came. The apartment exceeded our expectations and the complex is lovely. Marina and the other bar staff could not do enough to help us. I think we must have been the only guests when we came as we had the pool to our selves nearly every day. There is a pool that is about 40 cm deep and also connects with the main pool that was just great for our toddler.

The bus was easy to find and quite cheap about 4 euros for all of us to get to the beach where we went twice - though we would certainly recommend going to the end of the line and taking a pack lunch (not really anywhere to buy food at this particular beach, though the other one has two), as it was so idyllic and quiet for those with youngish families. Overall we had a lovely time and wished we had come for two weeks'!

The only negative I can add is that with the current value on the Euro everything was very expensive.

A great stay at Sofilias!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 2 weeks, the weather for us was wonderful. The apartment was new, clean, brilliantly furnished and a treat to stay in. The bed was the most comfortable one I have ever slept in abroad, and that makes a big difference, the children said the same about the singles. The kitchen facilities were second to none, and very efficient. A great place.

Car: not necessary

This fantastic holiday rental accommodation is ideally located in the Tomb of the Kings area of Paphos Cyprus. This holiday accommodation is walking distance to a 24 hr supermarket, local shops, bakery, tavernas, bars and restaurants. The holiday apartment is less than 5 minutes from a bus stop. The number 15 bus runs every 15 minutes to Paphos old town with its designer souvenir shops & Paphos Harbour with its fishing port & tourist areas. Not forgetting the fantastic night life; whether it’s a quiet meal in one of the many restaurants or a big night out on the busy bar street. The bus also takes tourists to Coral Bay in Cyprus with its lovely beach, bars and tavernas. About 1/2 mile from the holiday apartment you will find the Tombs of the Kings. The Tombs are burial caves carved into the bedrock of a hill and decorated with Doric columns and capitals, dating from the 4th century BC. It is not necessary to hire a car although it would be an advantage to discover Cyprus's beauty.

Other Activities: go kart, largest water park in Cyprus, historic sites
