The Tasmaria, a truly small & friendly aparthotel, the end result of Neo and Irenes’ motive to create their own business, an effort dating back to the 1970’s.
The Tasmaria Hotel Apartments name derives from the two offspring of Neo and Irene, Tas and Maria and therefore, Tasmaria.
Through the years the recipe has always been hospitality in service delivery hence the Tasmaria logo and motto,”Lets’ Become Friends”.
For the History and Culture seeker, within the Tasmaria area, there are a tremendous amount of sites to see, further from the local area we would advise guests, as a necessity, to visit the Troodos Mountains, “little Switzerland” as it is known and the Kykko Monastery Museum, where the objects exhibited date back many, many years and for most of them completion took at least 5 years.
In Larnaca and Limassol are Kourion, Ancient Kition, a 13th Century Mycenean Settlement, a Neolithic town and the sanctuary of Apollo which are in very close proximity. In Nicosia you will find “Laiki Yitonia” (Folklore Neighborhood) and the Cyprus Museum, (better take a bus-excursion).
With no exaggeration, we would claim that you need more than 6 months to explore all the history available, and these listed are only a fraction of what could be of interest to you. For those interested in local culture and cuisine, Tavernas should be first on the list to visit and must be away from the tourist areas. The further you go the better local hospitality you receive.
For the Recreation seeker, Night life in Paphos is adapted to the age group of 23-70 years of age. In the Tasmaria area, the pubs and restaurants are characterised by the friendly local characters whowill amuse you and the relaxed atmosphere is enjoyable- ideal to make life long friends, along with “Cyprus-Nights” where you will enjoy local food, and free flowing local wine.
The Lighthouse beach located just 10 minutes walk from the Hotel, offers local sports such as jet-skiing and there are 2 water parks, 1 in Paphos and 1 in Limassol, which are an ideal spot for the children. Scuba-diving courses for beginners are available, 2 golf courses in the nearby area available for your golfing needs and many other excursions and day activities such as the fun-buses, Jeep-Safaris, Boat trips and other activities either for relaxation, active or beach holidays.
Above all though, the main attraction of Paphos is that all local people are warm and always keen to help, it only takes that you allow yourself to be treated in charm.
