How do you create that sparkling wedding magic for your special day? Choosing the perfect destination is key, so Cyprus, the Island of Love, is a good start! And for a truly authentic Cyprus experience there is no better place to turn your dreams into reality than Pissouri, an attractive, rural resort but only 35 minutes from bustling Limassol and Paphos.
There is a special atmosphere in Pissouri, which dates to the Byzantine era and retains a traditional Cypriot character with a strong farming community. The character of the beach resort and the village is protected so if you dream of a wedding away from the bright lights, Pissouri, nestled in the hills and surrounded by vineyards and beautiful scenery, could be your ideal base.
Combining luxury and tranquillity, the village oozes romance and friendliness with a welcoming square, coffee shops and charming tavernas along the shores for long, lazy lunches.
For any resort, like any restaurant, there is no greater recommendation than seeing how popular it is with the locals, and the lovely, Blue Flag accredited, sand-and-shingle shores of Pissouri Bay, lapped by crystal-clear waters, are as attractive to Cypriot day-trippers and holidaymakers as it is with tourists from around the world.
With a magnificent Gothic church and several chapels, and some of the most famous historic sites in Cyprus within easy driving distance, Pissouri is an ideal choice for those who wish to escape the crowds but enjoy exploring. For an extra romantic touch, try a visit to Aphrodite’s Rock, which, according to local myths, was the birthplace of the beautiful goddess of love.
Sports lovers will find Aphrodite Hills Golf Club just a short drive away, while there is a wide range of watersports on offer, including jet-ski, sailing and kayaking, as well as hiking trails in the hills.
