Only a 10 minute drive from the Blue Flag beaches at Coral Bay and from the centre of Paphos, Tala is a popular location for visitors, ex-pat residents and holiday home owners alike.
Looking down on the main town of Paphos (amazing views out to the Med), and often labelled the ‘Beverley Hills’ of Cyprus, Tala offers a peaceful location with a good village heart including the impressive ‘neophytus monastery’ (with cafe, shop and cat sanctuary) and a fine selection of bars, restaurants, traditional tavernas and other eateries.
A new bakery, internet cafe and small small shops mean you rarely need to leave the village. Tala is home to ‘The Gallery’ which is a very tranquil and upmarket bistro bar/restaurant, in a private and leafy setting. Just outside Tala into the hillside is ‘Vatouthkia’, a family run Taverna with amazing views and atmosphere. The Sunday lunch buffet is the best value around and booking is always advisable.
Neighbouring villages Emba and Mesogi offer a further choice of restaurants and shops away from the main tourist areas. Mesogi is home to the delightful ‘Olivers’ delicatessen, 2 large bakeries and couple of the best traditional tavernas around. Kelftiko night at Vassos’ tavern on a Thursday is a must do. Great traditional atmosphere, authentic food, music and dancing until late.
Golf Trips to Tala
The village is conveniently situated for Golf at ‘Minthis Hills’, with further golf courses at ‘Elea Estate’ (Nick Faldo designed), Secret Valley and Aphrodite Hills less than 30 minutes away by car.
The villa provides an ideal location for wedding parties and honeymooners with the many weddings that take place in Cyprus (the island of love), and is perfect for those seeking a peaceful, relaxed lifestyle within close proximity of modern amenities.
Some of our best villas with private pool are situated in and around Tala can be seen below.
