Maroni Village

Situated at the north eastern end of the Mediterranean basin, the island of Cyprus is the third largest having an area of 9,251 km2. It enjoys an intense Mediterranean climate with long dry summers from mid-May to mid-October with mild winters from December to February. In mid-summer temperatures are high, the skies cloudless with gentle sea breezes creating a pleasant atmosphere in costal areas like Maroni.

Maroni village is perfectly placed, 5 minutes from an undeveloped coastline with deserted beaches, yet almost equidistant from the main towns of Limassol, Larnaca and Nicosia. Despite it’s location, it is off the beaten track with the A2 motorway 7 minutes away. The village of Maroni has been a well kept secret since the first expatriate settled there nearly 30 years ago. Development in and around the village has been strictly controlled and a small quiet village atmosphere is still maintained.

The village has a resident population of some 600, of which nearly 100 are British and other Western Europeans. The English speaking community is well represented on the village council and publishes a bi-monthly newsletter which contains local information, upcoming events and articles of interest – see www.maronicyprus.net

Maroni is well served with a bank, post office, clinic, supermarket, butcher, garage, beauty therapist and hardware shops as well as two excellent tavernas. In adjacent Psematismenos village, there is an excellent restaurant serving outstanding English and International cuisine. Zyggi fishing village is ten minutes away, with some 20 or so fish restaurants and also ten minutes away are the villages of Tochni and Kalavassos, with numerous tavernas and coffee shops.

The area around Maroni is steeped in history, with the Neolithic settlements at adjacent Khirokitia and Kalavassos and the old copper period port of Maroni Vournes (EXPAND).
Maroni is still a farming and agricultural area, with the rich soil of the Maroni valley producing the best tomatoes, cucumbers, courgettes and melons in abundance. A full range of locally grown fruit and vegetables is always available in season and strawberries are in season from December till May.
