Peyia-(Pegeia)  Cyprus  Resort

Peyia, a hillside village about 15 minutes by car from the town of Paphos, is a favourite retreat for those seeking an escape from their usual routine. Due to its hillside location many parts of the town offer views over Coral Bay and Paphos. It is sheltered by the green mountains on its northern side and overlooks the full expanse of the Mediterranean to the south. It has grown a lot in recent years it is now designated a town with its own municipality, but in its centre it retains its quaint village image.

There are several coffee shops, grocers, a chemist, a bakery and a number and heartily welcoming tavernas, which provide simple but excellent food at very reasonable prices.

Facilities in Peyia are mainly situated on the main road leading into Peyia village.The bakery serves delicious hot bread first thing in the morning. The butcher speaks some English but if you have trouble with the Greek language animal noises will do!

There are plenty of taverns to choose from serving a variety of local dishes, e.g. 'Cousins Tavern' which is situated above 'Kyrenia Tavern' (at 'Cousins' they serve an excellent Meze. Other restaurants include 'Peyia Tavern', and the 'Chef Tavern'.

Banks are open from 08.00 - 12.30 Monday to Friday, Please be warned the banks are closed on Saturday and Sunday and afternoons.

Behind the church you will find Peyia's answer to Aladdin's cave (Philippos supermarket), everything your heart desires from yoghurt, milk, bread, olives, frozen foods, fresh fruit and veg, kitchen sinks, microwaves ovens, cuddly toys, fondue sets etc.

There are plenty of parking places in Peyia and the main car park is situated on the left hand side of the road (going up the hill with Coral bay behind you) just after the chemist, it is well sign posted.

3.5 km from the superb beaches of Coral Bay and a short drive from charming Ayios Georgios harbour and the fascinating area of the sea caves. The next significant town is Kathikas, which again has an impressive range of eateries, as well as the Sterna Winnery.
