Book Cyprus Hotels :
Droushia Village - Paphos
For those who want to stay a little longer in this marvelous part of Cyprus, the village has The Droushia Heights Hotel . The construction of the hotel was funded by the villagers themselves who wanted to be able to offer the many villagers who emigrated in search of work, somewhere to stay when they returned ‘home’ for the religious festivals and big family events.

The hotel is popular in the spring and autumn with special interest groups including ornithologists and botanists as the area is naturally so rich. The hotel encourages visitors all year with his popular series of lectures given by local experts on local history, nature and folk art.

Droushia village has several good tavernas including the Phinikas with its shady terrace, and the Kapsalos Coffeeshop whose meze takes some beating!

The village of Droushia a great place to explore, or perhaps even stay whilst on your Cyprus Holiday.
Droushia Village, Paphos.

Droushia is another of the larger villages in the Paphos district, on the way to Polis and Latchi. The village itself is very distinctive as its hills are covered with large rock outcrops that are known locally as ‘the Kari Rocks’ . The rocks large in Droushia are great for a spot of professional climbing, as visitors can often be observed trying to scale them

There is plenty to see in the village, including the new little weaving museum, which is dominated by a large wooden loom {known locally as a woofah}and usually has a villager hard at work making a traditional ‘rag rug’.

Not far away, the village coppersmith can also be found hard at work hammering the copper into cooking pots and ibriki – the little coffee pots for making a perfect Cyprus Coffee. He has worked in the village for more than forty years and still warmly welcomes visitors to his workshop. The rhythmic sound of his hammer can be heard in the winding streets close by, and his display of gleaming copper is just one of the hidden treasures of the Laona villages.
