Bridge and Bowls in Paphos, Cyprus

This luxurious adult-only four-star superior hotel has been a firm favourite with First for Bridge guests for many years. Ideally located in beautiful gardens overlooking the ocean, a flat, 30-minute walk takes you right into the Paphos harbour. As well as enjoying our daily bridge sessions, we include three weekly bowls sessions, bridge seminars and twice weekly dancing classes. 
If you can tear yourself away from the hotel, this delightful island has many places to explore. Head up the Troodos Mountains for breath-taking scenery, culture, and insight into the island’s heritage. View Aphrodite’s Rock or take a step back in history and visit the walled and divided capital Nicosia.
