Anoyira is a pretty village with old stone houses, cobbled streets and tubs of coloured flowers. Many of the houses have been built using locally quarried limestone and many of them have been renovated as Anoyira is one of the villages that are being preserved in the government scheme. The village has the award winning Chateau La Noyère winery run by the Nicolaides brothers which produces eight good wines and was was one of the first to used non-indigenous grape varieties.
On the upper edge of Anoyira is Oleastro - the Olive park – which contains a working ecological olive mill run by Andreas and Lina Ellinas as well as museum areas that tell the history of the olive and explain the different uses of the olive and olive wood.
Anoyira is a fun place to enjoy a mini-break and in the heart of the village is a beautiful old building – 300 years old that was the family home of Nicolas Makrides. He and his wife have restored the building and converted it into eight holiday studios with traditional stone walls, mellow furniture and traditional soft furnishings and outside a flower-filled courtyard where the couple often light the charcoal and prepare a barbecue for their guests.
Property has long been popular in Anoyira as many Cypriots have restored their family homes and foreign families have settled there. Whilst it is very difficult to find an older property to buy, Avlonas is a new development of traditionally styled village houses that blend in perfectly with their surroundings and are situated on the lower edge of the village which is perfect for that daily stroll.
