We hope you are enjoying looking at Paphos Life. The site began life as an offshoot of a Bridal Directory, and was going to be a combination of a blog and a local directory. However, the internet being what it is, an opportunity for us to add a forum, and thus Paphos Life was thrust into the limelight.

Our mission statement however, has not changed: we want Paphos Life to be a useful and enjoyable site, for both expats and holiday makers alike.

The blog and forum are now fully working, and the news section is about to go live. However, thanks to suggestions from the forum, new sections have also been added. There is a searchable list of Med Prices, plus detailed weather reports courtesy of Weatherunderground. You can even get a comparative 36 hour forecast from 9 locations around Cyprus, so finding a dry spot to visit is easy.

(The above might not seem relevent in the summer, but if you are here on your holidays, believe me it can rain a lot in the winter!)

The site is still in development, and if you click on a link and are asked for a password, that just means you are trying to access an area that is not yet ready.

In the fullness of time, we would like to produce a Greek version of the site (and possibly Russian and Chinese). However, for the time being we are sticking with what we know.

If you have any suggestions for the site, you can either email us at admin@paphoslife.com, or send us a message via the forum.

If you are a business who would like to advertise on Paphos Life, then drop us a line. We are a young site but in our first month we have had almost 250,000 page views!

Love Paphos

Chantara Falls

This waterfall, tucked in the woods behind the mountain village of Foini, has long been a favourite of ours. You can either pay it a quick visit, and have a paddle in the lower falls, or, if you are a bit more adventurous, you can climb the steps to the upper falls, and take a dip. The really adventurous can go beyond that, and have a stream-hopping adventure through the ancient woodland...
