Located mid-way between Paphos and Limassol, and a short distance off the highway, Pissouri Bay is the ideal base for exploring the south-west of Cyprus. Limassol seafront has a laid back and relaxing vibe; Paphos harbour is buzzing and lively.
Molos – The Seafront Promenade at Limassol
Local historical highlights include the spectacular Greco-Roman amphitheatres and mosaics of Kourion and Paphos, medieval castles at Limassol and Kolossi, and the monasteries of Omodos and Kykkos.
In nearby villages, traditional crafts of lace-making, wine making, olive pressing and more are preserved.
And on a hot summer’s day, there’s nothing better than an air-conditioned drive through scenic wine country, or a walk beside a trout stream in the cool of the Troodos Mountain pine forest.

Our Local Guide
The great appeal of a villa holiday over a hotel is that you have more of everything – more freedom, more privacy and more space.
Another plus is that you’re not tied to dining at the hotel restaurants every night, so you can explore the local eateries… and in Pissouri Bay there’s a great choice.
Once you’ve tried a villa, you may never go back to a hotel again!
‘Self catering,’ doesn’t mean you have to cook…
Even though Pissouri Bay is only a small resort, you can dine out in a different restaurant on every night of your holiday.
Or if you’d prefer to stay at home, why not order a takeaway?
