Local Area

The Paphos district is renowned for it's nearly all year sunshine and you can step back in time and visit the Amphitheatre and wonder at the artifacts on display also the fantastic mosaics. Visit the famous Aphrodites rock where you can swim in the turquoise sea, drive up to the restaurant above and enjoy the spectacular views.

Paphos is a delightful harbour town with many shops and restaurants. Next to the harbour is the Heritige Centre where you can see and walk amongst ancient mosaics. Twenty mins drive away is Paphos Waterpark, the largest in Cyprus.

A visit to the Troodos mountains is a must - you can even go skiing in the winter months and then come back down to go sun-bathing on the beach, all in the same day as it's only 1 hours drive away.

A short drive away from Mandria, on the south side of the Akamas Peninsular is Lara Beach where you might catch a glimpse of the rare green turtles.

Surrounding Area

The Cypriot people are a very friendly and always helpful people. Most speak English and nothing seems to be rushed by them. Therefore Cyprus is an ideal place to relax and rest, while enjoying the dry and warm climate, spectacular sights and mouth watering food and wine.

A country to visit not just once but many times and perhaps even to consider to live there, even to retire there. It's nice to dream! I know I have because I visit Cyprus at least twice a year and every time seems different and exciting.


There are three excellent 18 hole championship golf courses within 10/20 mins drive of Mandria. These are Secret Valley, Tsada and Aphrodite Hills. Even if you don't play golf they are well worth a visit for a drink or meal as the scenery is absolutely stunning and the food is excellent.
