Pissouri village is perhaps the only seaside village in Cyprus which has retained its original architecture and environment. The village itself stands on a hilltop with a sea level difference of 250 metres and for the most part is built using solid stone walls. The village centre has been preserved with Governmental assistance and a village square which is surrounded be small family run restaurants and cafes, is extremely popular among both locals and foreign visitors. The village income is mainly from agriculture (vineyards) and the local vineyards set in the valley (next to the project) are considered to be some of the best on the island. The village has extensive forestland which
provides miles for walking in a most pleasant and enjoyable environment.
The village, in addition to the family run businesses in the village itself, provides shops/entertainment/restaurants situated within the bay, and at a distance of 500 metres west of the project, there is the well-known Columbia Beach Resort Hotel (4 and 5 stars), which offers the possibility of residents using its sports, health and other facilities, including tennis, conference rooms, restaurants, etc. The project has entered into an agreement with the hotel management to accept (subject to approval) membership of the project's residents to use the hotel's facilities (subject to payment).
Golf Course - The project is located approximately 10 km away from the international golf course (18 holes) Secret Valley and its nearby Aphrodite Golf Course (international standard 18 holes) which is now under development (operational in the year 2004). Within the Aphrodite project (10 km away), a new InterContinental Hotel is also under construction (completion 2004). In addition, the Tsada GolfCourse (18 holes) is located 10 km away.
Aphrodite's Birthplace- The world-known birthplace of Aphrodite (goddess of beauty) is located approximately 8 km away from the project.
