Apartment in Latchi, Polis, Paphos (South Cyprus) - The Ideal Location Is Only A 10 Min Stroll From Polis Centre And 10 Mins To The Nearest Beach By Car
The 1st floor apartment with a very private balcony and mountain and sea views has one large double bedroom with large double wardrobes, a double bed and door to the balcony. The spacious lounge has two sofas which convert in to single beds making the sleeping capacity 4. There is a fully fitted kitchen with modern appliances such as cooker, washing machine,large fridge/freezer, microwave,kettle toaster etc. There is also a dining area with table and chairs for 4 people and full place settings for four people. The modern bathroom has a shower WC and sink together with storage space for toietries etc. The balcony which is accessible from both the bedroom and lounge overlooks well manicured gardens. It overlooks the large communal pool which has sun loungers and umbrellas provided free.The pool is cleaned twice weekly and the gardens which are looked after 2 weekly and are in prime condition. Beyond the gardens there is a cornfield and views of the beautiful Akamas mountains and peninsular. From the balcony you can sit and watch the sun set behind the Akamas mountains and turn the sky bright red....very romantic.!! This really is a stunning sight and can be enjoyed whilst drinking a beer or glass of wine.!!!!..wonderful experience.Each night is a different sunset. The apartment is a 10 minute walk from the centre of Polis with its fabulous restaurants, bars and cafe bars. Polis has not changed a great deal as other parts of Cyprus have over the years and offers a really comfortable cosmopolitan feel where you can eat in the square and watch the world go by! There are so many good restaurants you never need to eat at the same one twice and allows you the opportunity to try local Mediterranean dishes of all types, however the restaurants cater for all tastes from around the world. The beach at Polis has a good Taverna and sun beds and umbrellas...all you need for a day on the beach. From Polis beach there is a narrow promenade a mile or so long, all along the beach and you can walk to Latchi Harbour or travel by bicycle and enjoy the beaches and restaurants there. Latchi offers Boat hire, boat trips around the Akamas, snorkelling trips, deep sea diving excursions, water skiing..in fact everything to do with water sports you will find in Latchi. The boat trips from Latchi to the "Blue Lagoon" must not be missed with superb swimming, drinks and barbecue all included....a terrific day for around €20. Polis and latchi have so much to offer for a fun filled holiday and apart from the fact it never rains between April and November you can also take part in any of the following activities.# Boat trips #Golf ( 4 courses. )# The Baths of Aphrodite. # Boat Hire# Horse riding# Bicycle hire. # Traditional theme nights in Polis Municipality outdoor area#Go Karting# Tribute Bands in Polis and on the beach at Latchi. # Car hire # Ten pin bowling# Aqua Park in Paphos# Quad bike hire# Walking around tha Akamas#Coach trips to the Troodos Mountains and Mount Olympus. # Deep sea fishing# Snorkelling# Water Skiing# Quad bike hire# Go karting# Or just sit, sunbathe, swim and basically chill out !!!The Akamas Peninsular is a Heritage protected site with many species of Flora and Forna and offers spectacular views over the mountains and the ocean....very popular with walkers of all ages. North of Polis and a relaxing drive all along the coast road there are beaches all the way including a particularly nice one at Arghaka, 8 kms away. A little further on up the coast road is the small fishing harbour at Pomos with clear waters to swim, sunbeds,umbrellas and a fabulous Fish restaurant on the beach.The views around are once again spectacular. Just outside Pomos in a lay by there is a small kitchenette catering van and this lady produces fabulous food and in particular the best bacon sandwich you will ever taste !!!It can be eaten at a table ovelooking the sea and mountains....A fabulous location and has to be seen to be believed....very relaxing.Then on to Pomos for a swim hard life! A Coach trip from Polis to the Troodos Mountains is a must which takes in spectacular landscapes a visit to 2 monasteries and a visit to Omadus village on the way, a village which doesn't appear to have changed in centuries. Sit in the cobbled square and drift back in time with a local coffee. The coach trip also takes in Mount Olympus, the highest point in Cyprus where Archbishop Makarios has his tomb.The whole day is a wonderful experience. !! and a great day out for a reasonable cost. If you fancy a day away then Paphos, some 20 miles away from Polis offers the shopaholics a treat with new Shopping Malls and a choice of top designer goods. There is also a large Aqua Park which is ideal for a day out for the children...and the adults !!! Paphos also has a harbour and there are beaches both in and around Paphos and also next door in Coral Bay. Paphos and Coral Bay are far more commercialised than Polis and so don't have that same special atmosphere.
About the Owner
Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
The Akamas Peninsular.
Many keen walkers and Hikers use Polis as a base to explore the Akamas Peninsular which is a huge Heritage site and expanse of land with interesting varieties of Flora and Forna and is a designated protected area of special interest and expands for hundreds of square miles along and in from the coast.
Boat hire and Boat trips from Latchi to explore the peninsular we would certainly highly recommend.
There are many other historical sites in the Polis area including the Baths of Aphrodite where the goddess used to bathe after her swim in the ocean.
Polis Beach is a 5 minute drive from the apartment and has a Taverna on the beach with sunbeds and umbrellas.
Latchi has a long coastline with several designated beach areas and Tavernas.
Apart from Polis beach there are many other beaches within a 15 minute drive of Polis, either way and a beautiful harbour and beach at Pomos,10 kms away or 15 minute drive.
Some of the beaches offer watersports, jet skis,boat trips,boat hire,pedalos etc.
There are many beaches only a 10 to 15 minute drive
Polis is a 30 km or a 40 minute attractive, easy drive from the nearest airport which is Paphos. You will be given accurate directions from the airport should you hire a car and I haven't lost anyone yet !!!
A taxi from the airport to Polis will cost around €50.
The holiday, in my opinion is enhanced by hiring a car and visiting some of the areas described in the write up.
I would recommend car hire and I can arrange one to be at the airport waiting for you at a very reasonable weekly rate.

Everything we would recommend and like you to try will be included in our information pack located in the apartment.
The pack is updated every year so our guests do not miss anything !!
Polis Town Square is a delight not to miss. A cobbled square surrounded by excellent restaurants, local shops,coffe houses and bars all of which create an atmosphere which just can't be bettered ( In my opinion.!! )
Delicious seafood, together with national and local dishes are served up......The fish dishes coming straight from the sea to plate.!!!
Also you must also visit the restaurants in and around Latchi. !!!!
All of the restaurants in and around the area offer excellent food and terrific value ...a meal and a bottle of wine for two as little as €30.
The meal can be enjoyed after a day on the beach, sunbathing and swimming or perhaps after a boat trip or zipping over the ocean on water skis !!!
There is so much to do and the sun shines everyday......guaranteed. !!!!
