The Kokkinohoria

The Kokkinohoria, or Red Villages, consist of: Avgorou, Ormidia, Dasaki Achnas, Xylofagou, Frenaros, Sotiras, Paralimni, Vrysoulles, Liopetri, Deryneia, Ayia Napa, Protaras.

They are a series of picturesque villages that took their collective name from the red color of their rich soil. For this reason, potatoes, artichokes, citrus and other vegetables are grown in Kokkinohoria, with the locals either engaged in agriculture or working in the tourist industry of Protaras and Ayia Napa during the summer months.

Rich with history as well as fertile soil, in the Kokkinohoria you can visit places of natural beauty such as the river in the village of Liopetri with its fishing boats, folk art museums in Avgorou and in Deryneia.  You can also visit the CyHerbia botanical park at Avgorou and the Achna Speedway in Dasaki Achna. In all the villages the visitor will find wonderful traditional taverns with delicious food, many using our products, and a plethora of stone Byzantine churches and chapels scattered throughout the region.
