Bridge and Bowls in Paphos

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.
