Kritou Terra, Paphos District
If you would like to experience a fast disappearing way of life, then this is the place to stay. The traditional village of Kritou Tera, tucked away from the usual tourist trail, yet with easy access to mountains and beaches, can provide an insight into the traditional Cypriot culture. This is a traditional stone-built village house, renovated in a style sympathetic to the local architecture. The property is located on the edge of this compact village with stunning views over sea and mountains. The spacious paved area has a sun umbrella, table & chairs with a hammock to hang in partial shade. Situated at 500 metres above sea level, the climate is perfect in the hot summer months. The Cyprus Environment Centre is housed in the old village school indicating the value of this location for anyone interested in the natural environment and... Read more

We were first here at Jacaranda some 10 years ago and returned because we loved it so much, mainly for its Cypriot village charm. We were pleasantly surprised at all the changes the owners have made since then such as the extensive planting and work in the garden with a nice spot for relaxing in the late day sun yet...

Lovely renovated Cypriot villa at the edge of the village, with marvelous views to the Troodos-Mountains. Please note: It is a two-storey building with no internal stair. So you have to use the outdoor stair to reach the upper floor with bedroom and bathroom. Colorful garden in the front of the house with flowers, trees and patio. Fully equipped kitchen...

We had a lovely relaxing week in this comfortable house in a quiet village, 10-15 minutes from Polis with nice beaches and all facilities like good restaurants, ATMs, etc. The North West we discovered is a comparatively undeveloped area with beautiful walks and views. Great restaurants within a short drive. The cottage has a well-equipped kitchen and comfortable seating. Good...

About the neighbourhood
Kritou Tera is ideally situated between Paphos (30 minutes) and Polis and Latchi (both 15 minutes). Paphos airport is a mere 40 minute drive from the village, while the many attractions in the town provide enough activities for several days! The famous mosaics and Tombs of the Kings are certainly a must but the scenic harbour and ancient fort will provide a stunning backdrop to a more leisurely break in one of the many harbour cafes and bars.Polis is a small town with supermarkets and shops, petrol stations, banks and post office and other services. There are also many lovely restaurants and from which to choose, especially in the pretty town square which is traffic free. Polis beach, with it stunning views across the Akamas Peninsula, is via the orange grooves and camp site. From here,... more
