Most of the Republic's villages have seen an incredible surge in construction activity during the past decade, as local land owners eagerly built a large number of homes to accommodate the increasing numbers of overseas property buyers flocking to the island between 2002 and 2008.

The Republic of Cyprus' villages from Cape Greco to Chrysochous Bay

Argaka: Set in the hills above the Bay of Chrysochous, some four miles north-east of Polis, Argaka is a charming, rural farming community. Set well away from the beaten path, it holds a special appeal for all those wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of Cyprus' mainstream tourist resorts.

Ayia Marina: Located about another four miles north of Argaka village we find Ayia Marina. The increased popularity of this community with buyers seeking properties in Cyprus away from the beaten track but close to the beach, has caused the construction of quite a few seafront developments in this village.

Ayia Thekla: Set just two miles from Nissi beach in the resort town of Ayia Napa, Ayia Thekla is a quiet seaside community which became a firm favourite with British property buyers between 2004 and 2008. But while the village's British expatriate population may have grown over the past five years or so, its infrastructure has failed to keep up.

Erimi: This small village just outside Limassol is attracting a lot of attention for a number of reasons, its proximity to Episkopi and the British Soverign Base, and the expansion plans for the local Vikla golf course not being the least of which.

Kinousa: Only a few months ago, few people had ever heard of this tiny traditional village in the hills east of Polis. This is, however, rapidly changing, as Kinousa village enjoys unrivalled views of the forthcoming Limni Golf Resort, and has therefore attracted a great deal of attention from homebuyers looking for investment properties close to this fabulous venue.

Kouklia: Set slightly back from the main Limassol to Paphos motorway is Kouklia village, and with it the site of 'Aphrodite's Sanctuary', an ancient place of worship for the island's resident goddess. But its mythical wonders, aside for a moment, the fact that the Aphrodite Hills and Secret Valley Golf Courses are just two miles from this village lend it a very real-world appeal.

Liopetri: Once a sleepy farming community to the west of Paralimni, Liopetri saw a veritable land rush between 2004 and 2008, when overseas property specialists claimed it as the perfect place to invest in Cyprus. Villages like this, however, only hold a limited appeal for tourists, and today Liopetri is dotted with For Sale signs, as the holiday rentals promised by slick developers and estate agents failed to materialise.

Maroni: This village is one of the main producers of Olives and Carob in Cyprus, and has been a firm favourite with British immigrants for decades. Located between the main Larnaca to Limassol motorway and Zygi village on the south coast, Maroni is surrounded by orchards and fields, and is also home to a protected grove of ancient olive trees.


Mazotos: Set back just over a mile from the sea, this small, traditional village has remained largely unchanged by villa and apartment developments. The nearby seafront, however, is a different story, as luxury villa developemts have sprouted like mushrooms along the local shingle beaches.

Neo Chorio: Located on the fringes of the Akamas peninsula, Neo Chorio's hillside setting features some truly stunning views of Chrysochous Bay, and the Polis/Latchi coast. Surrounded by nature, and appealing largely to more outdoor-loving visitors and residents, Neo Chorio has seen few major property developments.

Sotira: Like Liopetri to the west, Sotira is another small farming community which was once advertised as a prime investment location. And like Liopetri, Sotira is filled with vacant villas and apartments for rent, as mainstream tourist rentals have predictably bypassed this village.

Tala: Featuring a charming little village centre lined with bars and restaurants, Tala is quite a sizable community in the hills above Paphos. Sporting magnificent views of the coast and the Mediterranean Sea, and located only a little way from the Tsada golf course, Tala village is a pleasant blend of traditional and modern.

The Troodos Mountains: Much of Cyprus’ interior is taken up by the Troodos massif. This ancient mountain range boasts stunning views of the island as well as many hiking and mountain biking trails and ski resorts. And while Troodos village itself may be a something of a tourist trap, the village of Platres, about four miles from the summit of Olympus, is an entirely different story.

Xylophagou: Nestled against the eastern fringes of the Dhekelia British Sovereign Base, and set back about a mile or so from the sea, Xylophagou is another one of the many Cypriot villages where property developments have mushroomed in recent years. Unlike Liopetri and Sotira though, Xylophagou has attracted a sizable British expatriate population.

Zygi: What can you say about Zygi village? It's one of the three seaside communities in Cyprus famed for its fine seafood restaurants. Set on a beautiful part of the south coast, the village itself has also retained much of its traditional charm, with old, stone-built carob warehouses along its seafront lending much to its character. It really is a shame someone built a cement-works next door...

Telling you what others don't

Although on paper, foreign property buyers in Cyprus are amongst the most protected in the European Union, there are a number of Estate Agents and developers who seem determined to milk their clients for all they are worth. What's more, the Republic's legislation can oftentimes be confusing, and open to misinterpretation.

For your own information, we have compiled a list of some things you, the homebuyer, should really be aware of.
We tell you what others dont.
