Chlorakas has many old buildings of historical and architectural nature: one in particular is the tiny 12th century church of Ayios Nikolaos which is reputed to be of the Frankish era with a small monastery attached to it.



Peyia village was first settled by Venetians, during the Venetian Domination of Cyprus (1489-1570), probably by Venetian merchant sailors and or by sailors of the Venetian fleet in conflict with the Ottomans over Cyprus rule.


Pegeia, like many other towns in the Paphos region, sports a large number of cafes and restaurants along the main road of Coral Bay. More places to eat are being built on the next road in, to the east of the main strip, suggesting there is no shortage of demand. These range from taverns, meze houses and traditional cafes, to themed restaurants hosting, for example, Chinese nights. The next significant town is Kathikas, which again has an impressive range of eateries, as well as the Sterna Winery.

Peyia is probably the most popular village in the district of Paphos to purchase a property.



Emba is one of the largest villages in Paphos, Cyprus. It is spread over a wide area and not only borders Paphos but also the villages of Chlorakas, Kissonerga, Tala, Tremithousa and Mesogi. It has a population of 4,500 people. The appellation of the village is purely Greek, belonging to the Cypriot dialect.


In this dialect Emba means “enter”. It is possible that the name of the village was given because it is built at the entrance of Paphos, through which the travelers from the north, northwest and west came in.  

The village is noted as ‘Emba’ in the medieval maps. Emba has a few shops and tavernas dotted along the narrow winding road that runs through the village.



Kissonerga is a village in South West Cyprus, about 5 miles north of Paphos, in a region notable for the cultivation of banana plantations, an area known as the Ktima Lowlands. In 1980 the population of the village was 700 people.


Kissonerga is about eight kilometres down the main road from Paphos towards Coral Bay.  Along the coastal road are several hotels, mini-markets, numerous bars and taverns. Away from the coastal road, Kissonerga village has a main street where there are restaurants, several mini-markets, banks, coffee shops, a bookshop, florist, chemist and hairdressers.



The picturesque village of Tala is situated 10km nnw of Pafos, Cyprus.  The popular Coral Bay Beach is only a 10 minute drive away where you will find stretches of golden white sand. 


This traditional Cypriot village is surrounded by paved pedestrian areas, traditional tavernas, local coffee shops where you can see the elderly Cypriot men sitting outside watching the world go by.

There are many local amenities in Tala, these include restaurants/taverns, supermarkets, bakery, butcher, pharmacy and much more. 


The village is only 2km from the beautiful monastery of “Agios Neofytos” and the mediaeval church of “Agia Ekaterni” (St. Catherine) which dates to the 15th/16th century which is a centre piece of the village square.

Another popular area for Ex Pats!



According to the legend the village took its name from the word KONY, the word used to rename the city of Ikonia in Asia Minor, in which four thousand Greeks formerly lived.


Quite probably the first inhabitants of the community were the Greeks from Asia Minor.  The Village is located a distance of 3km east of the city of Paphos and at an average altitude of 190 meters. This beautiful village offers a taste of country life, yet lies just ten minutes from Paphos International Airport.

Konia has several taverns with traditional Cyprus food and local wine, and the historical town of Paphos offers you all the amenities you will need.  


It is just a 5 minute drive to the International School of Paphos.



Mandria is a village located on the South-West coast of Cyprus in the Paphos district, less than ten miles from Paphos city. Conveniently situated less than a 10 minute drive from Paphos Airport, Mandria is a fantastic way to enjoy rural Cypriot life.

The area has strong links with myth and legend, especially the legend of Aphrodite – otherwise known as Venus – whose birth is said to have taken place on rocks along the coastline. Mandria is known for its fantastic variety of migratory birds and wonderfully scenic walks which are easily accessible thanks to the flat terrain around the area, as well as byzantine churches, many of which were looted as recently as the 1960s and have been restored in recent years.

In all honesty it is a lovely village but visit on a Wednesday afternoon when all the flights starting arriving.

Tsada village is situated 8k, North of Paphos City center and being 612m above sea level making this area popular due to the slightly cooler summer months.

In a landscape overlooking the sea and a climate that favors the cultivation of vines, grain, carob trees, olive trees, walnuts, almonds and many fruit trees, Tsada of the approximately 1,000 inhabitants is one of the “villages of Minthi“, as well as one of the largest ampelochoria (vine growing villages of Cyprus) in the area.

Winters can be quite cool so heating is a must!

Polis Chrysochous Bay


Polis Bay (or Polis Chrysochous Bay) is a small town at the north-west end of the island of Cyprus, at the centre of Chrysochous Bay, and on the edge of the Akamas peninsula nature reserve.

It is a quiet tourist resort, with the inhabitants' income being supplemented by agriculture and fishing.

Polis is served by the fishing port of Latchi, with its delightful harbor and plentiful of Fish Taverns.  Boat trips around the Akamas peninsula are available from the harbor. Neo Chorio is within the area of Latchi where you can find impressive properties overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and of course home to the popular tourist attraction ‘Aphrodite’s Baths’

Polis & Latchi are seasonal with a lot of places closing down in the winter period.

We recommend that you visit each village, talk to the locals and if you can see yourself living then search for property in the surrounding areas - we are all different; where clients say 'I want to be in Tala' some say 'Tala is not for me'  - village is for information purposes only!
