Located in the Pafos (Paphos) region, at an altitude of almost 700 metres, the small and traditional village of Kathikas has been inhabited since ancient times and offers agrotourism in tranquil environs. Just 23 km north of Pafos, the village can be reached by following the B7 route and then the E711, or by taking the coastal route E701, turning into the E727, and then the E709.

Retaining its traditional charm, the village has residences that are over a century old and serve as fine examples of folkloric architecture, whilst it also has many old and interesting churches. The small donkey sanctuary of the village further complements the authentic character of the village

Kathikas is one of the winemaking villages of the Pafos region. Its name is said to either originate from its original owner, or from the verb ‘to sit’ - ‘kathizo’ in Greek - due to the perception that the village sits on a level location when looked at from a distance.
