Drouseia village

Located in the Pafos (Paphos) region, the pretty little village of Drouseia sits at an altitude of 630 metres in the mountainous area of Laona, and is thus named for the cool breeze that carries from the Akamas Peninsula, coming from the Greek word for ‘cool’ (‘drosera’).

Just 30 km away from Pafos and 10 km away from Polis, the village can be reached following either the B7 route and then the E711, or taking the E709, and then the F708.

The traditional character of the village is maintained through its stone houses with carved doors and windows, and in its narrow, winding streets that offer stunning views of hillside and coast. The tranquil and traditional environment makes Drouseia perfect for agrotourism, and accommodation is available in many small hotels, as well as the stone houses themselves.

The taverns of the village are also known locally for their excellent Cypriot cuisine, and the warm family welcome they give.

Aside from its pretty views, the village is home to the religiously significant ancient monastery of Agios Georgios Nikoxilitis, which was built in the 15th century, and was rebuilt in 1923 after it was destroyed by a fire.
