Description

Peyia Village lies 19 kilometres northwest of Paphos, on the coastal hills inland from Coral Bay. The delightful hillside location means many parts of the town provide fantastic views over Coral Bay and Paphos. Take a stroll to the highest points and then in Peyia, don’t forget to quench your thirst at the picturesque Pegeia fountains, which can be found in the beautiful stone-paved village square.  Four kilometres from the village, near the fishing refuge, are the ruins of two early Christian basilicas with some very interesting mosaic floors depicting animals, which indicate this site must have been an important establishment in early Christian times. There are also rock-hewn tombs of the Roman period above the sea.

Facilities in Peyia are mainly situated on the main road leading into Peyia Village. The town centre has a town hall, church and several little shops, restaurants, bars, supermarkets, a bakery and even a beauty salon for a spot of pampering. There are plenty of tavernas to choose from serving a variety of local dishes. Friendly service and tasty no fuss menus guaranteed at all.  

Hire a car and take a five minute drive to Coral Bay Beach for blue flag excellence, or drive on up into the Akamas Penninsular to discover enticing coves.  Take a picnic and enjoy lazy days on the sands beneath the pampering Mediterranean Sun and be sure to stay late so you can watch the sun set too. 

Peyia provides the perfect setting for those seeking to get away from the daily hustle and bustle of life and luxuriate in some pure relaxation.
