Right at the heart of Cyprus, 190 meters above sea level and surrounded by hills, lays 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 with their central courtyards and heavy, big entrance doors and don’t 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.
As with most small villages in Cyprus, Skarinous dominant land mark, is the church of The Guiding Virgin Mary, there is also Golden Donkeys Farm and Dipotamos Donkey Farm where you can enjoy a ride in nature and taste donkey milk. You can also see the Donkey milk beauty products.
