Skarinou

Right at the heart of Cyprus, 190 meters above sea level and surrounded by hills, lies the picturesque village of Skarinou. Located near three of the main towns of the island, Nicosia, Limassol and Larnaka, right off the main motorway interconnecting these three towns, Skarinou combines the qualities of country life with the luxuries of life in town. Built on the side of the hill with the unique Cypriot terrain as its background, Skarinou preserves its traditional architecture. The houses resemble the old traditional stone buildings reminiscent of days passed and gone. And as with most small villages in Cyprus, Skarinous dominant land mark is the church of The Guiding Virgin Mary (Panayia i Odigidria) which stands proud and tall at the entrance of the village, welcoming both locals and visitors. Furthermore, the old style identity of the village remains intact with its narrow streets leading to squares and natural openings. Houses with central courtyards and heavy, big entrance doors (outer-doors known in Greek as ksoportia) are still found all over the village which is built in different levels due to the morphology of the ground.

In this small village, where architectural structure blends in with nature and modernization co-exists with tradition, culture and customs have survived through time. A walk through the village may lead you to see women embroidering or knitting in their courtyards or even making the traditional halloumi (Cypriot cheese). Do not be surprised if you are called in by these hospitable people to be treated to a homemade sweet or a cup of coffee as this is considered natural and is very common.

Activities and Places of Interest

Visit the church of Guiding Virgin Mary and the chapels of Saint George and Apostole Loucas. The 'Environmental Information Centre of Larnaka Mountainous Areas' - located in the village is worth a visit in order to learn more about 18 rural areas of Larnaka region (Flora, Fauna and Cultural elements). Visit the Golden Donkeys Farm and Dipotamos Donkey Farm to enjoy a ride in nature and taste donkey milk. You can also see the Donkey milk beauty products. Go to Ktima Georgiade's to have the experience of a Greek Music night with plenty of food and wine. Skarinou tavern, Olive Restaurant, Classic Car Inn and Ktima Georgiade's are very good options of tasting Cyprus traditional food. Coffee shop is also available in the village.
