Hidden away in the hills overlooking the city of Paphos, Tremithousa village offers a serene escape from the usual tourist trails. This quaint village, with its narrow winding streets, traditional stone houses, and friendly locals, is a captivating testament to the enduring charm of Cypriot village life.

Perched approximately 300 meters above sea level, Tremithousa is nestled among lush vineyards and olive groves. It's strategically situated to offer panoramic views of the city of Paphos and the shimmering Mediterranean Sea, providing a tranquil retreat while remaining conveniently close to the urban centers. 

The name Tremithousa (or 'Terebinthousa') originates from the Terebinth trees that historically grew in the area, providing a valuable source of turpentine. The village has been inhabited since the Roman period, and its long history is reflected in the charming stone architecture and the age-old customs that are still maintained by the local community. 

A walk through Tremithousa is like stepping back in time. The village is filled with traditional stone houses, some of which have been beautifully restored, providing a glimpse into the rural architecture of the past. The village square, with its traditional coffee shop (Kafeneio), the Greek Orthodox church, and local school, serves as the heart of the community where villagers come together to socialize and celebrate religious feasts. 

The countryside around Tremithousa is a nature lover's paradise. The fertile soil nurtures a bounty of fruit trees, vineyards, and olive groves. The village is particularly known for its aromatic and delicious citrus fruits. Walking trails lead you through this verdant landscape, providing a peaceful retreat from the bustle of city life.

Tremithousa is a place where community spirit thrives. The locals are known for their warm hospitality and take great pride in their village. Visitors have the opportunity to witness and even participate in traditional activities, from the making of local delicacies like 'halloumi' cheese and 'souvla' to the celebrations of Greek Orthodox feasts.

While Tremithousa itself is a charm, its location in the Paphos district offers easy access to various attractions. The Minthis Hills Golf Club is just a short drive away, offering golfing enthusiasts a challenging course amidst spectacular views. The town of Paphos, with its archaeological sites, beautiful beaches, and vibrant nightlife, is also easily accessible.
