An eden of discovery, wellness and adventure

Exclusive neighbourhoods and private homesites capitalise on incredible views, positioned around the golf course, children’s playgrounds and world-class amenities.

Perched on a tranquil hilltop, resting in 5 million square metres of a Natura 2000 protected landscape, this authentic residential retreat offers true escapism and cultural discovery. Inspired by local Cypriot dwellings, the pioneering architecture is a unique balance of modernity, tradition and the natural world.

High-quality design that creates a strong sense of community and long-term value has been an integral part of the shared vision between renowned developer, Pafilia and world-class architects, Woods Bagot.

All properties – Residences, Villas and Suites – harmonise with the topography to capture the light, harness cool hillside breezes and frame the extraordinary views. Nature is an ever-present element at Minthis. The 18-hole championship golf course moulds itself to the landscape, passing walnut and fig trees, olive groves and the historic 12th century monastery.

World-class chefs use seasonal ingredients from the surrounding countryside to create dishes that are a fusion of modern Mediterranean flavours. Countless nature trails balance serenity and pathways for adventure — mountain biking, horse riding, hiking —while peaceful courtyards and gardens welcome outdoor yoga or quiet reflection.

Just 10 minutes from Minthis lies Pafos, a beautiful and vibrant city that is captivating in its contrasts. A cosmopolitan hub, Pafos combines stunning palm-fringed beaches, stylish boutiques, lively cafés and world class restaurants, with colourful archaeological sites, rustic tavernas and charming colonial backstreets. Add to this the city’s thriving arts scene – concerts, plays, screenings, exhibitions – and it is no wonder it has become a European Capital of Culture 2017.

Design: Holistic Harmony

The essence of Minthis echoes Stoicism, an ancient Greek school of philosophy, which encourages living a life in harmony with the universe and in agreement with nature. Just as Stoicism teaches, Minthis inspires a mode of thinking that counsels: I don’t have to be here, I choose to be, and to enjoy the instant of life.

In bringing Minthis to life, Pafilia made a commitment to sustainable design that will ensure a sensitive balance is struck with the natural surroundings. In fact, Minthis is situated on a protected Natura 2000 site of some five million square metres, of which only 3% will be developed.

The resort is the result of valued partnerships between the acclaimed residential developer Pafilia and several world-renowned authorities in their fields. The carefully-conceived masterplan was developed by international architecture firm WATG, who have been leaders in strategic luxury planning and design for over 70 years. Design and architecture has been undertaken by Woods Bagot, one of the largest architectural groups in the world and one whose award- winning future-orientated work centres on human experience and global communities. The world-class championship golf course has been designed by Mackenzie & Ebert, celebrated British course architects who believe in creating enduring courses that harmonise with the natural landscape.

The architects and designers travelled extensively through local mountain villages to understand the philosophies of traditional Cypriot architecture.The home at Minthis merge these time-honoured aesthetic principles with the best of contemporary design, creating refined cultural evolutions.

Ochre-hued limestone from the Troodos mountains, panels of warm Iroko wood, walls of glass, striking entryways, and light and leafy courtyards are just some of the seemingly opposing features of tradition and modernity that unite at Minthis in creating simple sophistication, and a unique harmony of intimacy and openness.

Investment: Long-Term and Limitless

Property options at Minthis are diverse and the build strategy is low-density, guaranteeing exclusivity, and long-term property and rental values. The resort is established enough to be a secure investment, but new enough to ensure significant appreciation.

The award-winning property collection, Residences, Villas, and Suites, offer a distinctive proposition to each respective homeowner. Add to this Minthis’ unique leisure options, and it becomes just as much a lifestyle investment focused on limitless enriching experiences as it does a long-term monetary investment.
