Maroni is a delightful village set apart from the usual tourist tracks, offering the perfect base for touring this lovely Mediterranean Island, situated as it is midway between the 3 major Towns of Nicosia, Limassol and Larnaca, each only 30 minutes drive away.
Set on the edge of a dry river valley and surrounded by gentle rolling hills with views of the sea to the south, a 2 minute drive or ½ hour walk to sandy beaches, and to the north of the Troodos Mountain Range and ski slopes, an hours drive away.
The neighbouring Village of Zyggi is famous for its waterside Fish Tavernas, and many other surrounding villages all have their own delightful Tavernas offering warm hospitality and good local food.
Within a very short drive there is a Camel Park, a choice of sandy beaches, one with water sports, a Neolithic village, and fascinating working villages all offering small surprises for your discovery…. for example I came across the village of Kato Dryss where I discovered a bee-keeping museum run by the most delightful of couples fully cognisant of all things bee related… I could barely tear myself away, clutching their own delicious honey and vinegar.
Also in Kato Dryss, a magical tiny corner shop of an alchemist called Elli, who takes fruit and vegetables and turns them into the most delectable chutneys and jams, the like of which has people coming from all over the Island to spend a happy half hour tasting and buying. Not one of my guests has left empty handed from "Jars".
