It is next to Iasis Hospital, which has a pharmacy and shop attached.
Its about a 15 minute (15km approx) drive from Paphos airport.
The complex has a library/book-swap room located at the pool.
The nearest shops (Elli's & Farm Supermarket) and bar/restaurant (Pambi's) are a 10 minute walk away, in the Universal area.
The main tourist area of Kato Paphos is a 15-20 minute walk, and the harbour is a 20-25 minute walk.
Kato Paphos has an abundance of shops, banks, bars and excellent restaurants, including the well known Bar Street area.
Car hire offices are plentiful, and driving is easy, as cars are right-hand drive and drive on the left, as in the UK.
UK visitors wont need electrical appliance adaptors, as the 3-pin plug system is used here too.
There are many historic & cultural sites in the area, including Paphos Castle, and the ancient Tombs of the Kings.
Diana Gardens is a 15 minute walk to the nearest beach, opposite the Aloe Hotel.
Sailing, water skiing, boat hire, excursions, wind surfing and fishing are all available from the harbour area.
There are 4 championship golf courses within 15 minutes drive - the newly opened Faldo designed Elea course at Geriskipou; Minthis Hills at Tsada: Secret Valley, and the magnificent Aphrodite Hills complex, which also caters for tennis and horse-riding.
The legendary Aphrodites Rock is also about 15 minutes drive.
The local bus service from the harbour area can take you to the lovely Coral Bay, just 7 miles away, and to the old town, just a mile from the complex.
The local karting centre and waterpark are 20 minutes walk, as is an indoor bowling centre.
Paphos old town, with its mixture of modern boutiques, market area and traditional Cypriot shopping, is a 15 minute walk from the complex.
In winter, it is even possible to ski in the Troodos Mountains (90 minute drive approx), and sunbathe and swim in the sea on the same day!
Cyprus is a truly magical island, and your holiday here will undoubtably be a memorable one.

We arrived in the apartment on 5th August 2012. The apartment was exactly as described in the description and the Pictures looked exactly the same. The correspondence we had with the owner Vincent balfe was excellent. We were excellently looked after whilst we were there by John and Margaret The location of the compex was ideally situated there was a resturant located about 15 minutes walk away. Also there was public transport located at the bottom of the road which took you anywhere and the buses were wheelchair accessible and cost one euro.
The apartment is also ideal for any one with mobility problems or who need to use a wheelchair as our daughter who is 39 and uses a
wheelchair was able to go around the apartment in her wheelchair and
was able to access the grounds and the pool easily.
All in all it was a fantastic place which I would reccomend to anyone.
A superb appartment that is excellent value for money. It had everything needed to make the stay enjoyable for our family of four. and was in the perfect position to be far enough away from Paphos to be quiet but close enough to visit if wanted.
Very close to the Paphos Mall (which has a Costa Coffe outlet!) and a great supermarket if self catering.
Although the pool was a little on the cold side we still used it and considering the time of year we are not complaining.
We will definitely use this appartment again when we return to Cyprus.
The apartment is a long way out for first time visitor not knowing the area however there is a good bus service from just across the road, the timetable in the apartment was out of date but we have left an up to date one in the apartment, the location for the pool was excellent.
We had a problem with the air conditioning in our bedroom mid way through our holiday but this was sorted out with speed and efficiency by the owner and the managers.
We had a lovley quiet three weeks break and wouldnt hesitate to use this property again. If you want peace and quiet away from hustle and bustle we would definately recomend the property.
If we had any slight negativity - we could only get ITV on the TV due to poor satelite signal. Not really a problem but we were there for three weeks so it would have been nice on occasion to get a diferent channel
very spacious, well equipped apartment which exceeded our expectations. This was our first time renting an apartment separately from a package holiday and i would recommend it to anyone. We had a fantastic holiday at Diana gardens and will be booking again next year.
We arrived at the beginning of July 2009. The appartment was exactly as described and was light and airy with excellent, close, access to the pool which was superb and got well used every day. There was good communication from Vincent, the owner of the apartment, before we set off for Cyprus, with good arrival instructions including directions to the apartment and some tips on where to go to eat and drink as well as all important appartment entry details and emergency contact numbers.
We had no problems getting to the apartment or getting into it, even though we arrived late at night. We found several small problems upon our arrival but one phone call to Vincent and the really helpful agent came around and got everything sorted the same morning. Excellent client service with a smile. The aircon, which was included in the price, was needed, as it was very hot in July, and once again the agent explained the best, most efficient way to use it. in fact once he had spent 5 mins setting it up for us, we never touched it again for the full 2 weeks, it worked so well. So all in all our stay started off well and stayed that way for the rest of our holiday. I would rate this apartment as excellent with good quality, furniture and appliances. In fact, I think we only found one thing missing and that was directions on how to get a gas cylinder so we could use the provided gas barbecue. Hardly a disaster!
I cannot recommend this apartment, or Vincent, highly enough, they both combined to make a family holiday great and that is exactly why we will be back again the next time we visit Cyprus.
