Luxury Pissouri Holidays

Age-old Cypriot charm

Pissouri

Peaceful Pissouri is easy to fall in love with, with buckets of Cypriot charm. The lower part of the village borders a curved sand-and-shingle beach, while the upper part is snuggled into orchard and vineyard-clad hills.

Wander through the upper village’s narrow cobbled streets until they open out into the square – it’s the heart of Pissouri and is home to a handful of restaurants and tavernas, as well as a beautiful 19th-century Orthodox church. During summer, stick around for Cyprus Nights in the square, with plenty of drinking, dancing and mezes.

Get your sightseeing fill at the impressive amphitheatre, a Roman relic that still hosts concerts and events during summer. Pissouri is close to another impressive site – the legendary birthplace of the goddess Aphrodite. You can visit her temple by the picturesque village of Kouklia.

Karen Knight

There are two parts to Pissouri, one down near the beach and another up in the hills. Visit the upper part for fantastic views, traditional Cypriot houses and some great tavernas in the village square.

The famous Aphrodite's Rock - where the goddess is said to have risen from the sea - is only a short drive from Pissouri. There's a great lookout point where you can park the car and take photos of the rock and the rugged coastline.

When to go

Cyprus has Greek island-style summers that warm up quickly, with temperatures sticking in the low 20s around April and May. In the middle of summer, highs are well into the 30s, and you can still get away with great beach weather (in the slightly more comfortable 20s) around September and October. Cyprus doesn’t get particularly cold; things hover in the late teens throughout winter, with the odd rain shower.

Visa Information

Visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Cyprus.

Tipping

Most restaurants and hotel bills will include a 10% tip, so you don’t have to tip wait staff or bar staff. Even still, extra tips are always appreciated, especially if you received good service. Taxi drivers appreciate a tip; aim for about 10% of the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official languages of Cyprus are Turkish and Greek. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
