SIMOU VILLAGE:

Situated in close proximity to Drymou is the village of Simou with its 250 inhabitants, including about twenty non-Cypriot families. Paphos is 30kms away and in the opposite direction Polis is 12kms away. At 500 meters above sea level, there is little, if any, humidity in Simou.

There are two restaurants/taverns in Simou, one bakery in front of the village, one supermarket and three coffee shops. The coffee shops are all located in the pleasant village center.

The village square resurfacing the last years and it finished in stone, in keeping with the tradition of the village.

There is a village nursery catering for 3-6 year olds and an infants’ school for the 6-12 years old. After that, the nearest secondary school is in Polemi and children are ferried there by inter-village buses or by their parents. The closest police station is a short drive away in Stroumbi and you will find the nearest hospital in the town of Polis. However, a doctor does visit the village every week on Fridays.

If you ever tire of the fantastic sea and mountain views, including the magnificent Table Top Mountain just outside the village, you can always head off to the Evretou Dam just outside the village boundary for a spot of fishing or visit the nearby Tsada golf course. Even closer though, why not see how big a catch you can get from the local river running through Simou?

Simou is home to one of the oldest trees in Cyprus at 1,000 years old – and there are records to prove it. The deciduous Terebinth or Trimithia tree is native to the Mediterranean and is said to have produced the earliest known from of turpentine. In days gone by, the ancient Greeks were said to have used this as medicine.

Also of note is the medieval Skarfos Bridge which was built by the Venetians. It is situated next to the old watermill where the locals used to grind wheat.

Simou has a bit of everything for everybody – peace and quiet, a fantastic location being both close to nature and at the same time within easy distance of all amenities, unique sights and breathtaking views. With its sister village of Drymou, Simou is the perfect setting for your traditional stone-built house or a restoration project.
