Where is the best place to stay in Cyprus

We stayed in a hotel complex in Paphos many years ago, but haven't been back since. We would like to revisit staying in a villa with our children near to a good sandy beach with facilities, within easy reach of a nice authentic small town with good restaurants, but definately away from the youth/club scene. In fact as far away from the 'clubbers scene'/british breakfast scene as possible.

Can anyone advise on where to stay and perhaps more importantly where not to stay!

Thanks

Difficult this as best beaches tend to be developed. Best beaches are at the eastern end of the island but there are areas there which might suit you, for the small town I suggest look at Polis at the West of Cyprus and the surrounding area and Pissouri between Limassol and Pathos.

I agree with Fred that this is a difficult one. The best beaches on the island are East from Ayia Thekla, through ayia napa, cape greco, protaras, pernera and kapparis but all resorts are fairly developed and all would offer a good choice of english breakfast type places which you wish to avoid.

the exception would be ayia thekla which is a huge private villa developement which doesn't really have any other facilities so you would need to drive to shops and restaurants.

Pissouri is a nice resort and still quite small and unspoilt but the beach is rather shingly and pebbly. I haven't been to Polis but hear it is probably the most un-spoilt. maybe one of our Paphos experts can suggest somewhere that end of the island which would have a decent beach but not be too commercialised.
