Koilani

4.6
Koilani is a village in the Limassol District of Cyprus, located 3 km south of Pera Pedi.The village of Koilani is built close to the west bank of the river Kryos, a tributary of the Kouris River, at an altitude of 820 meters. Tall mountaintops are visible from the village. It is 36 kilometres from Limassol . The village is connected through a motorway to Pera Pedi in the east, to Vouni in the south-east, to Mandria in the north, and to Silikou in the south-east. Koilani has preserved the traditional folk architecture of the wine-producing villages of the Limassol district. Narrow, paved, ascending alleys, tiled roofs, yard walls with earthenware jars, balconies, and arches with embossed frames at the entrances of houses that are built with regional, carved limestone, provide the visitor a taste of the tradition and inheritance of this unique village.For the naming of the village there are several interpretations:1. According to one version, up to the Byzantine years it was named Kourion or Korineon and after the Frank Domination era it took its name from a French region of the same name.2. Another version assumes that it originated from the ancient city of Kyllene of Pelloponesos from where the first inhabitants of the village came. This however does not seem very probable if we accept that the village was named Kourion or Korineon during ancient times.3. A third version contemplates that the village took its name due to standing in a valley. In reality however the village is built upon a steep slope of the Arames Mountain.Koilani receives an average annual rainfall of about 750 millimetres; mainly vines of wine-making varieties, and apple, pear, almond, olive, and citrus trees are cultivated in its region. Koilani is among the premiere wine-producing villages of Cyprus. Apart from the grape derivatives produced -raisins, "khiofterka", "ppaluzes", "epsiman", "portos", "sousioukkos", "Zivania" -the village is known for its aromatic "arkatena" as well as its sweet pastries and the unique wine made in Koilani. Quite a few areas in the community are uncultivated and in natural vegetation grows in them. Stockbreeding is limited.
