Kiti Village and the surrounding area

Though most frequently referred to as a village, Kiti is actually a small commuter town about five miles south of Larnaca's outskirts, and less than five minutes' drive from the airport.

Information about Cyprus

Indeed, driving down Kiti's high street, you could easily be forgiven for thinking you were in quite a major town's shopping precinct, as this half-mile long stretch of road is lined left and right with a wide assortment of shops and stores from one end to the other.

And, unlike the neighbouring Pervolia, which still retains a traditionally Cypriot atmosphere about it, Kiti is an immensely contemporary community, permeated with a prosperous small-town feel.

Panagia tis Aggeloktistis is Kiti's Medieval Architectural claim to fame

Panagia tis Aggeloktisti Church

 

Of course, no report about Kiti would be complete without making mention of its famous 11th century church, Panagia tis Aggeloktistis (Our Lady, built by the Angels). Indeed, this fantastic piece of medieval architecture has become something of a running joke on overseas property websites, as it is invariably the only thing anyone ever finds to talk about when writing about the little town.

But while much might be made of the church's 13th century mosaic of the blessed Virgin and child, there's plenty more to be said here about Kiti itself, which few other agencies ever mention.

For starters, the eastern outskirts of this thriving community are less than two miles from the western end of Larnaca airport's runway. Needless to say that this makes things just a little noisy during the summer months, for, unlike Pervolia to the south, Kiti is situated more or less directly beneath the runway's flight-path.

What's more, Kiti's population consists mainly of Cypriots, as the town acts as sort of an outer commuter belt residence for professionals working in Larnaca. There are however a few expatriates thrown into this mix, both British, and of other nationalities.

Heading out of town towards Cape Kiti, you'll also find the much-talked-about Venetian Tower, see to the right, which is a remnant of the island's defences from five hundred years ago.

Hilltop church at the forthcoming Tersefanou golf course

 

Then of course there's the fact that just a mile and a half north from Kiti's town centre, construction is starting on one of Cyprus' new golf courses, the Larnaca Golf Course and Country Club at Tersefanou. Since this project received the final seal of approval from the government back in April 2010 there's been a buzz of excitement in the locality, as this high profile leisure project is set to boost Kiti's profile on a number of levels.

To the left you can see the small hilltop church which marks the forthcoming golf resort's south-western boundary. Click here to see a map of the resort with the church marked to get an idea of what will be a part of the new leisure complex.

All in all, the little town of Kiti is without a doubt not for everyone, and the few British expatriates living there tend to be mainly of a professional ilk, rather than the colourful mixture of retirees and other folk found in many other Cypriot villages in the island's east. Nevertheless, there's no doubt that it holds a genuine appeal for some.

Tersefanou Village

Until about five years ago, Tersefanou was a little no-mark farming village nobody had ever heard of. Then the government announced it was issuing in-principle permits for fourteen new golf courses around Cyprus. This gave a local business consortium the idea for a new leisure resort.

These days, Tersefanou is hardly to be recognised when compared to its humble nature back in 2005. Luxury villas and apartments have sprung up all around, and the village has almost doubled in size despite the fact that the resort's final permit was not issued until April this year.
