Pelathousa Village is situated in the Paphos District of Cyprus. The village lies close to Steni, Lysos, Meladeia and Peristerona villages. Polis, also called Polis Chrysochous, is the closest main town to the village.

The village acquired it's name, according to legend, from a shrub which grew in the fields surrounding the village.

Pelathousa Village was a Turkish Cypriot village from the Ottoman rule until 1973, when the population reached a height of 450 recorded permanent residents. When the Turkish Cypriots left the village, Greek Cypriot refugees came to live in the village. The census of 2001 recorded 49 permanent residents in the village.
