The Paphos region
Cyprus is fortunate enought to have one of the most agreeable climates in Europe, with 11 out of 12 months a year enjoying brilliant sunshine!
Feel the romance in the air in the land where Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty once roamed. Swim in the sea by the rocks known as Petra tou Romiou where she was believed to have risen from the waves, make a pilgrimage to her sanctuary at Kouklia, or visit the grotto near Polis where she was supposed to have bathed.
Paphos Town has a pleasant harbour and medieval fort, combines a cosmopolitan holiday resort, spectacular countryside and historical sites. The region offers the possibility of combining sea and mountains as well as getting a taste of culture with it's many archaeological sites.
There are many activities available from playing a round of golf at a premier golf resort, indulging in sea sport, such as swimming, diving or sailing.
The Polis area offers you the experience of a back to basics lifestyle, sit in one of the tavernas in the square and watch the world go by! Nearby is the pretty seaside town of Latchi. A stroll along the quayside is particularly recommended, as are the numerous fish restaurants that overlook the water. Polis and Latchi are much smaller towns than cosmopolitan Paphos and have both retained their rustic charm.
The Baths of Aphrodite are situated just outside Latchi , this is a natural grotto with pool and tiny waterfall , where , according to legend, Aphrodite regularly bathed whilst she lived on the island. It's free to gain entry too!!
The Akamas Penninsular is an area of natural wilderness with dramatic coastlines and sandy coves. Visit one of the last Mediterranean nesting grounds for the green and loggerhead turtles on the sandy beaches of Lara. Or walk along one of the many scenic nature trails spotting rare endemic plants that grow there, or watching migrating birds fly by overhead. Or take a boat trip along the spectacular coastline of what forms Aphrodites playground.
Drouseia itself is a peaceful hilltop village where you will experience traditional cypriot life. It offers a complete get away from it all location, with a friendly warm welcome from the locals, whose family run Taverna's offer a great experience of traditional food at village prices!. The village coffee shop is traditional with the cypriot men playing back gammon and watching the world go by. The supermarkets are well stocked, however Polis has a large supermarket as an alternative.
Drouseias hilltop location means that it benefits from purer air than the coastal areas and therefore is excellent for anyone who suffers from hayfever or asthma. It is in an excellent position to reach Paphos, Coral Bay, Polis and Latchi, which are all a short distance by car. The car journey offers spectacular, breathtaking scenery too.
