Exploring Evretou

Published 20th of March, 2020

We never get bored of exploring the Cyprus countryside in Springtime, This is a good job, as social distancing prevents us from blogging about anywhere vaguely populated. The other day we took our swanky new 360 camera for a spin. The pictures proved popular, especially to people pining for a holiday cut-short. So here are the pictures we took with our usual camera as we were on our travels.

A Grave Occasion


It's a while since I've been here. This is the Grave / Memorial on the bank of the Evretou Reservoir, on the opposite side of the dam. It is one of my favourite places, and great if you want to get back to nature. Plus, nobody ever goes there, so you can sit and watch the world go by without having to wonder if you should be wearing latex gloves, or whether anybody spotted you coughing.



I had been hoping for a nice, calm, wind-free day, so I could get some nice reflections. However, the wind was blowing, and this little corner was the only bit that was playing ball.

Twitcher's Paradise


You can't see them here, but loads of birds have taken up residence in these cliffs.

Stunning View


But it's not all about the views. There's something else that has now come into bloom. Up until now, we have only seen the more boring orchids this Spring. Not any longer...

Phwoooar eh?


That's right. The Naked Men Orchids are in bloom again. And you can see why that chap is smiling so much.

Evretou Dam

Ever since we explored the abandoned villages of Evretou and Trimithousa, we have been meaning to return and have a look at the rest of the reservoir. A chance wrong turn gave us just the opportunity we needed, so off we went. It took us a few visits to get the full picture of the reservoir, but we saw some lovely scenery along the way...

The Evretou Grave

Last time we walked around Evretou Dam, we observed a solitary grave on the opposite bank, half way up a hill. After the blog was published we were approached by somebody who keeps a log of the Turkish Cypriot Graves on the island. He hadn't a record of this one, so I promised to revisit the area and get more information...

Skarfos Revisited

It's been quite some time since we visited Skarfos Bridge. One of the most accessible of the Venetian Bridges in the Paphos region, it is nevertheless off most people's radars. It has recently had a bit of a face-lift, so hopefully that will change. Skarfos Bridge is definitely open for business...

Abandoned Villages - Trimithousa

While doing some research for the blog on the Abandoned Village of Evretou, I read how the villagers fled to the nearby village of Trimithousa, before eventually settling in the North. From this I deduced that Trimithousa itself might also be abandoned. So I looked it up on Google Maps, and decided to check it out...
