Paphos and the local area
Mandria sits within an agricultural area, making it ideal for those who love countryside/coastal settings. Beautiful flora will impress and the peanut plantations that surround the village make for a wonderful setting for nature lovers. October sees village celebrations of the peanut harvest with a song, dance and wine festival.
A short drive from the village, there is the exclusive Secret Valley Golf Club and Aphrodite Hills Golf Club and Spa, which offers a championship course, practice facilities and an elegant clubhouse with spa. This makes it ideal for those who want reasonably priced, quality accommodation in a first-class location, whilst still taking advantage of what the beautiful island of Cyprus has to offer. E mail me for club prices.
You can enjoy skiing in the Troodos mountains during January, February and March. Troodos ski resort has 4 ski lifts and seven runs. Just 45 minutes away, Mandria Retreat is ideally placed for skiing in the morning and lying on the beach in the afternoon!
Horse riding is a popular activity - follow the link for centres around the island: horse riding.
