Steni Village and the Steni Museum of Village Life

Hello everybody,

Going from Paphos towards Polis, few km before reaching Polis take right and after about 4 km on beautiful green hills, a small road will take you at your destination, Steni Village. It is a wonderful experience, a fantastic day out with the kids with lots of nice activities.

The Steni Museum of Village Life can be found in the center of the village. I was lucky to be welcomed by Mr. Savvas Charalambous the curator of the Museum. He made my day… with a nice smile and desire to talk about this place he introduced me in the world of past trough the oldest Cypriot gate in the village 1844 (an original interior door made from Cyprus pine dated 1844).
“Enter and step back into Village life of yesterday”…

Old village objects from Farming, tools, thread making, traditional clothing, handcrafting, history, children toys are exposed to the viewer’s eyes in a unique ambient. About each one of them Mr. Savva had a nice story that my kids loved to listen.

Mr Savva will tell you the story about the pants… and the one about the boots. (I do not want to tell you more …).

The old toys corner was highly appreciated as my children had the pleasure to try them and play with them.

This is a place made with love for the past and for the people. There are written explanation of the museum objects in English and Greek language… there are stories to be told… to the little wise listeners. There are humming tops and slingshots in the boys’ corner.
It is an unforgettable experience and a nice opportunity to share with our kids stories of old Cypriot village.
In front of the museum there is a nice playground with swings, slides and seesaw where kids can spend some of their energy.

After all the running you could just relax in the coolest coffee shop of the village Neromylos for a traditional snack or coffee.

It’s a nice day out… plenty of activities and fun for the entire family.

Lots of sunny days from Izzy the Cypriot lizard!

PS The 3rd Sunday of every month Steni Farmers Market is held in Steni Museum courtyard from 10:00 – 14:00. It is a good opportunity to buy natural Cypriot products for kids and parents alike.
The wonderful Savvas villas can be a very nice destination for a family holiday.
