A word can change a mind. A sentence can change a life. A book can change the world

About a year or so ago I tried to buy an apartment in Peyia in Cyprus. For reasons beyond my control that purchase fell through and it’s only just now that another property has come onto the market which will do quite nicely for renting out to holidaymakers.

This time it’s in Kouklia and it’s a cosy single bedroomed apartment offering everything you require for your holiday in Cyprus. The village has a host of eateries and bars, a craft shop, post office and a medical centre and is only a 10 minute walk away. The tranquil village square is quiet during the day but comes to life on an evening, with live entertainment in the summer season. The apartment is a 13 minute walk from the Sanctuary of Aphrodite. It’s only a ten minute drive from Paphos International Airport and fifteen minutes from Paphos town. There are also two internationally acclaimed 18 hole golf courses virtually on my doorstep. One of them, Aphrodite Hills, was named the 2018 European Golf Resort of the Year by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators.

The ancient town of Palaipafos is located within the limits of the modern village of Kouklia, situated close to the mouth of Diarizos river, it’s 16 kilometres east of the modern town of Pafos.

Petra Tou RomiouBeaches nearby are the Blue Lagoon, Lara Beach, Argaka Beach, Coral Bay Beach, Baths of Aphrodite Beach, Laourou Beach, Petra Tou Romiou Beach and a whole host of other beaches, too numerous to mention.

So it seems to have everything a holidaymaker would need. All I have to do now is wait and see what happens as it’s all in the hands of my solicitor now.

Fingers crossed… and legs… and anything else I can manage to cross.
