Kypriotianika is the highest and central-most village on Kythera, an island known for its beautiful, uncrowded beaches and unspoiled landscape. It is the ideal location for a family vacation. You are 20 minutes from magnificent Paliopoli beach (where Aphrodite was born), 15 minutes from the Sunday Farmer's Market at Potamos, and a half-hour from the island's capital city of Hora.
To enter this tiny village is to leave the world behind. Tucked away above a hidden valley, Kypriotianika is quiet and private, engendering a feeling of remoteness where time stands still.
In Kypriotianika, traditional farming is still practiced, and our guests may be treated to the occasional basket of fresh fruits and vegetables from the valley. The village has ruins, renovated old houses and four churches dating from the 19th to the 12th century.
Discover an unspoiled, nature lover's paradise full of places to explore. The island is rich in diverse life forms, making it an exciting place to hunt for rocks, fossils and seashells, or to add rare birds and orchids to your life-list.
Explore the island’s fascinating past in the Byzantine city of Paliohora, the Venetian village of Kato Hora, and the 15th century Venetian Castle above Hora. There are many marked hiking trails.
