Beautiful apartment set in the coolTala Hills with stunning views and relaxing surroundings. Comfortable, clean and very helpful and kind owners and caretakers.Spacious living area. Our eldest son slept on the sleeper couch in the lounge and still we did not feel crowded. Great situation to travel around the western part of the island and away from the busy hot throngs of Pafos. Excellent valeu for maney too.

Apartment Victoria is a very comfortable 2 bedroom apartment, which comfortably will accommodate 4-6 people. There is ample parking should you need to rent a car. It is walking distance to the village which hosts many shops and restaurants. The apartment was in a quiet location, yet very central
The apartment is tastefully decorated with high end furniture and high end appliances. It is very well equipped for all your needs. It had a beautiful unobstructed view of the ocean as well as the complex's pool, which we used on a daily basis. The outdoor amenities were kept spotless and clean.
The apartment is about 15- 20 minutes from the airport and also the center of Phafos as well as many interesting historical places. There is something for every one in Cyprus and we found it a good base from which to explore Cyprus
