Maroni is one of those 'Picture Postcard' villages

Located in the coastal hills about half-way between Larnaca and Limassol, Maroni is an old farming village which has attracted a huge amount of attention from British expatriates.

Information about Cyprus

Far from having become just another 'Little Britain', like Oroklini and Tala for instance, Maroni village is still mostly as it always has been. Indeed, this tiny community, with its beautifully restored Cypriot village houses, and its narrow, winding streets, is about as far removed from the British expatriate mainstream as its possible to get anywhere along Cyprus' south coast.

This is largely because the expatriates who first bought property in Maroni didn't come here in search of sun, sea and sand; they came in search of the traditional Cyprus and quaint fixer-upper homes. Here you won't find any apartment complexes or large villa developments, just small traditional homes, and a few more contemporary villas scattered around the village's outskirts.

Instead you find rural tranquility, and a tight-knit community, fiercely protective of its village

There's been a settlement in this location since the bronze age, Cyprus' oldest olive press was found here, and history suggests that during the Lusignan crusader dynasty the little village was known as the island's Olive Capital. In short, Maroni and its environs are steeped in history, and its residents know it.

As a result, they are justifiably protective of their little community, and frown upon anyone seen to be disturbing their rural peace. But while this may at first seem to be somewhat stand-offish, one has to consider the fact that Cyprus has many communities where one can live in contemporary luxury with many tourist-orientated amenities and facilities right on the doorstep. What Cyprus does not have in abundance these days, is little traditional villages like Maroni, at least not along the south coast.

But of course there's a price to pay for living out in the sticks, so to speak. For, like Mazotos, about eight miles north-east of here, Maroni village boasts little in the way of amenities or facilities, except for one or two small shops and a couple of village tavernas.

However, unlike Mazotos, where the local character is eclipsed by concrete apartments, townhouses and villas, but which still features very little in the way of actual amenities, Maroni is still very much an archetypal traditional Cypriot village.

Here, residents are more than willing to visit nearby Zygi for their day-to-day shopping needs, or even to take the half hour drive to the supermarkets of Limassol or Larnaca for a week's shopping. Ultimately, this is a small price to pay in return for the tranquility of village life.

And so, content not only in the knowledge that life in their little village is not everyone's cup of tea, but also that their homes are selling at a premium price, the residents of Maroni continue life in much the same way they have always done.
