A short 5km drive away is Polis, a small traditional agricultural town bursting with Cypriot culture. Known in ancient times as Marion, the scenic beauty of the area is spectacular, from the coastal cliffs of cape Pomos to the pine and cedar forests of the Paphos mountains. Definitely an area to be explored with a great many deserted beaches a short drive away and interesting villages in the surrounding region.
Droushia is derived from the Cypriot word for ‘freshness’ just like the air in this village. Set high on a plateau, the views from Droushia are stunning, ranging from the Akamas Peninsular to the Troodos mountains. Rural life goes on here for the villagers, with typical old stone houses amongst narrow winding streets that add to the character of this traditional Cypriot village.
Local information on Latchi holidays. Cyprus Latchi is very popular with divers, there is a scuba centre in Latchi and diving takes place along the Akamas peninsula. There are many walks available, and local sights include the Baths of Aphrodite – a spot reputedly selected by the goddess
as a place to bathe herself, presumably because of the beauty of the surrounding countryside and cliffs. The scenery is at its most colourful during spring, thanks to the profusion of wild flowers and blossom on the trees. Public transport is limited, although there is a daily bus service to Paphos. Car hire recommended.
