1. Petra tou Romiou.

petra tou romiou paphos cyprus

Cyprus is renowned as the island of beauty. The "Petra tou Romiou" area is one of the most beautiful coastlines in Cyprus, where, according to mythology, Aphrodite rose from the waves. The Greek name "Petra tou Romiou" ("the Rock of the Greek") is associated with the legendary Byzantine hero, Digenis Akritas, who, according to legend, kept the marauding Saracen Arabs (7th-10th centuries) at bay with his amazing strength. With one hand he was said to have grabbed hold of the Kyreneia mountain range thereby forming "Pentadaktylos", the Five Finger mountain, while with the other hand he heaved a huge rock and tossed it into the sea at the Saracens who were trying to land. The rock still remains and thus gave the region its name. The site is a stop on the Aphrodite Cultural route.

TESTIMONIALS

Sander, The Netherlands.

Getting away from it all! We really enjoyed our stay at this house. Pambos, the owner, did a great job in making us feel at home right from the start! The house itself is located at the end of a steep road, near the edge of a small village. The pictures just do not do it enough justice, when we arrived there were flowers everywhere. And besides completely unobstructed views, you will enjoy lots of privacy at the pool. And even though it feels miles away, Paphos is only 15 minutes by car. The interior has lots of traditional details. We had a great stay at the house! An excellent way to see the real Cyprus, without giving up any comfort. Recommended for:Age 55+, Sightseeing, Families with Young Children, Romantic Getaway October 24. Rating *****: 5 out of 5.
