If you've not yet discovered this charming little corner of Cyprus, we hope you will find some holiday inspiration here. With family-friendly beach and a wide choice of restaurants a short walk from the villa, there's no need to be reliant on a rental car. Our Maps page details all the Pissouri Bay amenities, together with places of interest up the hill in Pissouri village, and further afield to help you decide.
Those who enjoy exploring will find the nearby Paphos-Limassol highway puts all of south-west Cyprus within easy reach. For suggestions of things to do in the area, see our Activities page.
Many visitors return to Pissouri Bay year after year. The picturesque bay, beach, variety of places to eat and drink, and - last, but not least - warm Cypriot welcome attract families, friends and couples alike.
Meaning Vineyard Villa, is a modern holiday home with its own pool and panoramic sea views; close to the beach and amenities. Approached along a vine-covered fertile valley, our Vineland development is on a quiet private road.
A stay provides the perfect relaxing holiday escape. Air-conditioned, light and airy, the villa is furnished in a contemporary style. The spacious open-plan living / dining / kitchen area affords views of the pool, garden and sea through two sets of patio doors. Upstairs are three bedrooms, each with balcony, along with two bathrooms.
The pool and garden are perfect for outdoor living. With mature trees, and enclosed by dense hedges, the garden is secluded and ideal for sunbathing. Choose between areas of shade and sun throughout the day, and bask in the cooling sea breeze. Large enough for swimming and water games, the private pool provides a tranquil place to drift on a lilo, the Roman steps making a good spot to enjoy a leisurely read.
With uplighters highlighting feature trees, patio lighting, pool lights, fairy lights and lanterns, the garden takes on a different dimension at night. Outdoor grilling is easy on the family-sized gas barbecue. Or enjoy warm al fresco evenings without the effort of cooking, by opting for a takeaway delivery.
A 3-minute level walk leads to the resort centre. Amenities here include restaurants, bars and tavernas, shops, and dive centres - everything you need for a chilled holiday. The beach is just a few steps further.
With Cyprus' most famous historical sites, golf, water parks and Paphos airport all 20 - 30 minutes away, there's plenty to explore locally. The large towns of Paphos and Limassol are also accessible, as Pissouri Bay is conveniently located mid-way between the two.
Holidays in the bay focus around the beach... a great place for a stroll, jog, paddle or swim. Relax on a lounger in the reliable Cyprus sunshine, enjoy people-watching, and the occasional refreshing dip in the bluest of seas. Snorkellers and sailors may even spot turtles in the clear waters. There are several beachfront cafés for cooling drinks, leisurely lunches and quick snacks. Watersports fans can choose from inflatable rides, waterskiing, pedalo, kayak and jet ski hire, or take to the skies with a parascend over the bay. For a change of scene, neighbouring beaches are easily reached by boat or car.
A steep road twists uphill to the older and larger settlement of Pissouri; a traditional Cypriot village of higgledy-piggledy whitewashed houses clinging to the hillside. The cobbled pedestrian Pissouri Square, with adjacent Apostolos Andreas St Andrew's church, form the heart of the village. Local life focuses around these two venues, with festivals and celebrations taking place in both.
For an authentic Cypriot experience, book a table at Platea Tavern for their Friday entertainment and meze. Cyprus Night includes energetic traditional dancing, in national costume, accompanied by the bouzouki. An English commentary explains the origins of the dances. The evening's highlight involves spectacular glass-balancing feats. Alternatively, O'Vrakas Tavern next door has a Bouzouki Evening with plate-smashing on Wednesdays.
A business hub for locals and visitors, the village has a wider range of restaurants, bars, shops and banks. A meander among the maze of donkey-width side streets reveals the 'real' Cyprus; terracotta pots brimming with geraniums, ancient peeling doors, and fabulous sea glimpses.
Along a pretty alley off the square is Pissouri's millennium project - a magnificent modern amphitheatre. Perfect for music, dance and theatre, there's a programme of events throughout the summer. Beginning in daylight, with the Mediterranean twinkling below, and finishing under floodlights after sunset only adds to the magic. Check our What's On Guide to see if there's an event coinciding with your stay - highly recommended. Tips: Book early, as amphitheatre shows are very popular with the village community, take cushions, and don't forget the coolbox!
