Cyprus-Where to go?

We know next to nothing about Cyprus, but would like to go there in the next fortnight for a week.

We're young early fifties, like a good quality (smaller) hotel/b&b in a quieter area, but fairly near a few bars and taverna for essential evening refreshments! Would hire a car to get to interesting places during the day.

Overwhelmed with the choices when we look online, and not loving the large soulless hotels we've seen.

Any advise would be gratefully received, with thanks.

Not quite sure where to suggest. This hotel is in a very quiet area and you would certainly need a car. http://www.aasparesort.com/index.html

Limassol is in a great position for exploring the island but it does have a lot of large hotels. We always go to a fairly quiet area of Limassol but to a large hotel, it is far from soulless and the staff treat you as individuals but it may be too big for you. The Londa is a boutique type hotel but is in the heart of the tourist area which again may not be what you are looking for.

We went to the Columbia Beach Resort in Pissouri in March which is a fairly quiet area and the hotel is different in that the rooms have their own front door i.e. you have to walk outside to go to the main building. It was out of season when we were there but we found it extremely peaceful.

Not sure this is much help but let me know if I can help further.

Since you would hire a car, you may find agrotourism in Cyprus ideal.? Depending on location, you will have tavernas close by.

Or would you rather stay in one of the bigger resorts and travel from there?

The hotel/spa recommended above is in a valley between Paphos and Polis. Very out of the way. The humidity makes it extremely uncomfortable.

Have you stayed there, Twigs? We went once and wouldn't go back.
