Akoursos village is located in the Paphos region, just east of Peyia. With a registered population of just 38 residents, it is one of the smaller communities in the area, although like most of the villages in the area, the summertime population swells extensively with holiday makers, both foreign and local.
Set approximately 400 meters above sea-level, there are often local goat-herders that can be seen milling around with their flocks.
Mavrokolymbos Dam is enroute to the village, and the main road continues on to Kathikas, offering spectacular scenic views and vantage points.
Following the E701 until Potima Bay and turning right at the signs, you will soon find yourself in Akoursos.
