About Cyprus
Episcopi
Episcopi
Episkopi Village is situated 12 kms towards Paphos. It lies west of the river "Ezousas" and is a village with a special character.

In the village entrance there is a steep rock, dominating the village and the valley underneath. In a few metres distance you can find the Saint Ilarion church (Agios Ilarion) , patron saint of the village. The church is dated back to 1192-1489 AD Frankish (Lusignan) period.

The village took his name from the bishopric (Episkopi) created in the village during the 1192-1489 AD Frankish (Lusignan) period.

The warmth and rich hospitality you will find here are as sincere and old as Cyprus itself. This is a corner of Cyprus as yet untouched by mass commercial development. Whether your shopping in the local store or enjoying a Cyprus coffee at one of the 'Kafeneon's' you may well be surprised at the locals interest shown in visitors from cooler climes. Local places of interest include an Weaving & folklore Museum at Phiti village, annual tulip festival at Pollemi village in April and May plus an abundance of local wineries making excellent days out. In or around Epikopi village you will find many restaurants (one within walking distance of Villa Sermar).
