Lovely serene place to wander around and enjoy either the sunshine or the plentiful shade. Bit disappointed with 2 euros for St Neophytos' caves which are tiny. Worth a visit to the monastery though.

This was a great way to spend a morning, without having to travel all the away to Kykkos. The monastery was easy to find and was a lovely place to visit when we got there. The church in the monastery was spectacular and the caves where St Neophytos lived were equally impressive. All told, this will not keep you busy... More

My husband and I have visited this beautiful monastery many times and at different times of the year. In summer, the smell of the many herbs that grow in the flower beds is amazing and immediately you start to feel the peace and tranquillity of the place.We have a favourite little room with large windows where you can sit quietly...

I was really disappointed by this. There were three steps to get in which I could not manage but my husband said that once in, it was all accessible. He really liked it with lots of icons and typically Greek orthodox.

We visited the monastery today after going to the cat sanctuary. The car park is nice and we saw the restaurant with a couple of shops but when we actually got to the monastery itself there wasn't an awful lot to see! The views were fab and the monastery and church were pretty but that is all we saw! Think... More

Beautiful and well maintained. Full of history and easy to get to by the local bus service. You can just take a seat in the shade, take in the serenity and views down to the sea. The peace is occasionally broken by the Monastery Church Bell.

Situated at the foot of the monastery is away from the noisier usual tourist places. Was recommended this little restaurant by a friend who was suffering long term illness and would only go to quieter places. That said it has always been fairly busy when ever we visit. Seated under a canopy of trees it has the feel of being... More

The monastery is about a 15 to 20 minute drive out of Paphos but it feels a lifetime away. The immaculately maintained grounds exude a serene and tranquil atmosphere and sitting in the shade on one of the many seats provided looking down the valley to the sea or up to the rockface where the saint carved out his cell...

This is my favourite walk. From my apartment in Tala its 40 mins to the monastery. I usually have a look around and have a rest before carrying on. There is a lovely cafe and a shop that sells their own bread and honey plus gifts. Well worth a visit, enjoy!
