Pyla resort

Can anyone update my info on this village?Last time I saw it (1995) it was caught in a time warp, a deserted village with armed UN peacekeepers on the roofs.

No place to base a holiday, but an interesting place for a local lunch under blue helmet protection.

I'm asking because I see a new complex has been built and apts are being advertised.

Is this the same village PYLA?

Many thanks

Is this the resort? It looks nice and only ten minutes from Larnaca.

Hi, both Pyla village and Pyla palms are about a 15 minute walk from the divided village, the apartments you see are luxury and privately owned, but there is nothing around these new complexes,we stayed in the pyla palms last Oct and all there is a little supermarket, and waste land .there is a couple of bars one about a five minute walk away and the Pyla Tavern Which serves good food and is good for entertainment that one is just a few minutes walk away from the divided village.it is quite interesting walking round the old village you can see the difference in culture between the Cypriot side and the Turkish side.you are not allowed to take photos of the old village but I did manage to get one of pyla fort, I will post it on the Larnaca forum along with photos of the new luxury complex and surrounding area tomorrow.Julie
