We landed in the dark which is always a bit of a downer because you can’t see the surrounding countryside.  We picked up our banged up rental car from National who charged a full tank of gas automatically, it is their new policy.  We argued that one for quite some time but to no avail, they won.  We drove 1 ½ hours almost to Papthos which is on the coast where we checked into our villa in the Aphrodite Hills development.  We could not see much in the dark but we knew this was a large development.  I knew this place was going to be nice but wow, it is really nice.  Our own private villa had its own pool and I was not expecting that.  I got this as a Getaway off of Interval International and it was cheap too.  Along with the pool we had 3 levels of terraces including a rooftop one overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.  Actually all terraces had a sea view.  It has a great kitchen and laundry and funky decor.  To be honest it is like a little oasis and we have not ventured far from it to explore.
