Minthis Village, Cyprus



Minthis Hills is a leisure resort and exclusive residential estate high in the mountains above Paphos, Cyprus. The complex has developed over a number of years and includes a golf course, tennis courts, nature trails and clusters of houses. Working closely with the Woods Bagot team, Camlins was commissioned to produce landscape proposals for several phases. These encompass a new spa, swimming pool, several groups of residential villas and a commercial village with restaurant, bar, mini market and other shops.

The approach to landscape design here is dominated by the stunning long distance views, the delicate limestone based ecology and a particular local climate at this altitude of + 560m. The buildings are set sensitively into the natural rocky landscape with minimal environmental impact. Imaginative design around changes of level and naturalistic planting has helped integrate buildings into the steep topography.
