Xeros Valley
This is a remote area which will look a bit different in the summer time. The nearest road is one of the few that spans this particular valley.
Below Asprokremmos Dam
We gave you a sneeky peak of this location in a recent blog. Another damn fine view, and the bees were enjoying it too!
Alphamega Carpark, Looking Towards the Hospital
You must have made a democratic choice to arrive here. You come here to refuel your house, not your car! There's an unusually shaped building in the picture where they really know how to look after you...
Limni Mine
At first glance this might look a beach, but you would be mistaken. Mine how you go here, as there are plans to turn it all into a golf course.
Scenic Paphos
Fed up with driving down the B7 into Paphos? If you were to take a more scenic route, you might end up here...
Evretou View
A lofty view of one of our favourite reservoirs. It has it's own abandoned village, and is near a Venetian Bridge.
Vretsia Valley
Now this is a tough one. You will need a 4x4 to explore this area properly, and the nearest tavern burnt down a couple of years ago, so you will need to bring your own refreshments. However, you aren't a million miles away from a secret swimming hole, so bring your costume and a towel and get ready to cool off.
Vretsia Flowers
Spring flowers, but where are they? This place has been abandoned, though the local tavern survived for longer than the rest of the village...
Kathikas Viewpoint
This is a tough on, however, if you have a car it is likely that you have driven past this location. There are a number of panoramic views along this section of the road, but what is the view of?
Old Pafos Carpark
You'll get a lift out of this location. While you are here, say hello to the little girl, though she's not interested in the view.
Polis From Evretou
Another lofty view, this time looking towards the sea. But is that the north or south coast that we can see in the distance?
Asprokremmos Dam
This is a damn fine view, but which one? It looks remarkably full at the moment, so do bear that in mind. It doesn't often look like this.
