Pissouri is the third largest village district in the Limassol district of Cyprus, and is located just off the A6 motorway midway between Limassol and Paphos (34 kilometers from each) in the Southwest of Cyprus. Pissouri receives about 450mm of rain annually, but has a good supply of groundwater in the valley, with agriculture and tourism as the two main commercial interests.Weather is mainly hot and dry during the summer months, and cooler with rains over the winter, and a common local phrase is “another perfect day in paradise”. It consists of two main locales, separated by farmlands and hills.
The main PISSOURI VILLAGE is located about 3 kilometers from the sea on the Cape Aspro ridge, and about 500 feet above sea level (152 meters). It is the administrative centre for the Pissouri District, and boasts a village square, petrol station, police station, post office,supermarket, two banks, and two clinics. There are many charming tavernas and coffee shops, and also entertainment facilities, a magnificent Gothic church, and several chapels. The village is home to the majority of the friendly Cypriot population of Pissouri, but also has a large expat population.
PISSOURI BAY is located some 3 km from the village at sea level in the bay to the immediate East of Cape Aspro. The bay is largely dominated by a hotel and resort, with many holiday developments on the hillsides, and thus is driven by the tourism industry. There are many shopping opportunities scattered amongst the restaurants, taverns, and bars. The bay is a deep water bay, enticing the visits of large motor yachts and sailboats, with cool waters and a long sand and pebble beach.
