We have a beautiful range of ponies and horses to suit all requirements at Eagle Mountain Ranch so that you can enjoy Horse Riding Paphos, Eagle Mountain Ranch, Paphos, Cyprus is based just 10mins distance from the main town of Paphos in the quiet countryside area of Mesogi, Paphos Cyprus. It is an excellent horseback trekking area.
I decided that I wanted to try horse riding after looking for things to do in Paphos during the winter. I filled in an application form online, which gives them and idea about your experience of horse riding. I then received an email telling us when they had availability and confirming we would go on the date agreed. When we got to Cyprus the weather forecast wasn’t on our side so we had to rearrange the day of the ride, again this was done through email but was quick and easy to organise.
When the day came for our ride, we had arranged to be picked up from our hotel, they were very punctual to pick us up. When we got to the ranch we were greeted by Cleo who explained he would be our guide. My partner was a little apprehensive about trying this experience but Cleo was great. He brought the horses down and before we set off he gave us a few minutes in the yard explaining how to control the horses and gave us a couple of try’s (I haven’t ridden for quite a while).
When we set off, Cleo was walking so he could control the horses if needed, we set off into the Mountains and he gave us lots of info about the area. We reached a place that had amazing views and the let us stay a couple of minutes to admire the view and he also took plenty of photos for us.
We did the 2 hour sunset ride but unfortunately the sun decided not to come out at this time so we didn’t get much of a sunset, but we really enjoyed the experience. The horses were fab and Cleo really put us at ease with the horses. Would highly recommend this experience. And would love to do it again next time we come to Paphos!

Mother Nature has excelled herself with the Outstanding Cape Greco and to help Locals & Tourists alike enjoy a cooling down swim or just sit and admire the great views she has created the Blue Lagoon. Breathtaking crystal clear Blue Turquoise waters are just the start of something that words cannot really do justice.

This is a place of Christian worship and is also a very secret place with Unesco protected frescos on the walls. You can visit even if you are agnostic however please remember that monks are still active and so dress modestly.

This was on our way from one town to another and it was worth the drive. The church is beautiful in itself. The monastery is well kept as you might expect. They make their own wine and olive oil which is for sale in their shop along with icons. There is also a museum of historical pieces which are pretty amazing.

Located in the heart of Larnaca.
A magnificent church with a great historical value.
I got married in this church and it was a great experience. Many tourists and locals are visiting the place on an everyday basis.
Opposite the church you can find many small coffee shops to sit and enjoy the warm weather of Cyprus.

The interior with its famous work of art is one of the most iconic churches that I have visited.
Particularly noticeable are the unusual Seating arrangements, each worshipper sits in a high backed chair with wings at head height, as if to stop you from being distracted from your worship.
A very special place.

During our trip to Cyprus we took time to visit Saint Hilarion Castle on the Northern coast of the island overlooking Kyrenia.
The castle is quite extensive. being spread over several layers encompassing the outer ward, the lower ward and the upper ward where the Royal apartments are located.
You need to be moderately fit to climb to the top, but it's worth the effort because the views from the top are breathtaking. Expect to spend a few hours here and take water with you on the climb.
Refreshments and toilets are available in the cafe at the base of the castle,

Not to be missed if at all interested in archaeology. A large site, still being explored. A guide book recommended an hour and a half to get around the site, but our experience was that if you wanted to see as much as possible, you could easily take twice as long.
The ground is pretty rough underfoot in places and not great for people with walking problems. Good footwear is essential, as is a hat of some sort in hot Sunshine.
There is good wheelchair access to parts of the site but not to everything.
Well worth the 5 Euro entrance fee.

Unbelievable in a way this is actually a church, but that's the beauty of several of these churches under a UNESCO inscription. It's this that got us to visit and I'm very glad we did. The architecture itself is interesting and unusual and the frescoes inside are vivid and beautiful. Can't believe it's been here since 11th century (with various improvements of course). The entrance to the church is free and there's a large enough car park next to the gate and the guardhouse - the car would be your most convenient way of getting there. The church is open and available in normal visiting hours, someone is always there (as opposed to some other paited churches.)

The winery is situated just outside Pano Panayia village, in the mountainous area of Paphos district in an altitude of about 850 m above sea level,surrounded from Paphos forest. We produce our wines from the indigenous grape varieties Xynisteri, Spourtiko , Promara (whites) and Ntopio Mavro, Maratheftiko and Yiannoudi(reds) which are cultivated in the best viticultural area of Cyprus, the Vouni Panayia area. Visitors coming to the winery can experience the traditional Cypriot hospitality; taste our wines, take a tour of the winery, watch the procedure of producing the wine and traditional products which are produced from the grape like soutzioukkos and zivania.The restaurant is open after reservation for lunch (seasonal traditional cuisine)
Stopped here after a walk. It was five euros to taste 4 different wines and have a small plate of food - small amounts of bread, cheese, cucumbers and a vegetable dish the name of which I can't remember (shame, because it was lovely). And yes, one of the wine's was so nice I bought a bottle!
