Xylofagou is one of the largest villages and is situated in Larnaca District but, as it is one of the ‘Kokkinochoria’, (red soil villages) it is an area we are happy to include in our listings. Xylofagou comes from the name Xylo – meaning wood and Fagou which is a popular implement used to barbecue traditional souvla. The village is ideally located halfway between Larnaca and the beach resort of Ayia Napa, approx 20 minute drive from each.

Xylofagou is most famous for Cypriot potatoes many of which are exported and in demand all over the world. With all the usual amenities including schools, banks, shops and tavernas the village is excellent for both residential or holiday use for families and couples alike.


Whether you are planning to visit the Famagusta region of the Republic of Cyprus for the first time or you are already in love with the area, there is something here for everyone.

The area is not known as the ‘Jewel of the Eastern Mediterranean’ for nothing! From the stunning cliffs of Cavo Greko (the most Easterly point of Europe) to quaint inland villages, to the 44 (yes 44!) white sandy Blue Flag beaches, the area holds something for every palette. We have beautiful nature trails, water sports galore, amazing fresh cuisine, nightlife, one of the top waterparks in Europe, fishing harbours, a world class Marina and the list goes on and on! You are never far from anywhere in Famagusta, a maximum 15 minute drive to the nearest beach from even the most inland villages.

Thousands of expats of all nationalities have made Cyprus their home over the years due to the warm local welcome, fantastic climate and host of things to do. The bustling cities of Limassol, Larnaca and Nicosia are just over an hour away but here you can enjoy a more relaxed pace of life. Crime rates are amongst the lowest in Europe, English and Russian are widely spoken and there is always time for a chat, a coffee or a glass of wine in the sunshine. We look forward to introducing you to hidden gems of the area on your next visit.
