Anogyra is a small village about 10 K inland from Pissouri in the foothills of the Troodos mountains. Its population is some 450 people, of whom about 150 are British. Pissouri itself is a very well-known tourist destination made up of the main village which is some 1 K inland from Pissouri Jetty, the well-appointed beach resort. Pissouri is about half way between Limassol and Paphos on the south west coast of Cyprus. 

The village of Anogyra is about 500 metres above sea level. It has a village shop, two tavernas, a post office and a village centre restaurant and coffee shop. It is one of only 2 pastelli (Carob toffee/chocolate) making villages on the island of Cyprus, and there is  a herb farm based around one of the tavernas. In the centre of town there is a Carob factory and museum and just outside town there is Oleastro, the official Cyprus olive oil museum, fun park and restaurant. The nearest supermarket is in Pissouri some 10 minutes away and both Limassol and Paphos are about 30 minutes away. All access and internal roads are metalled and well maintained.

The weather in Anogyra is fairly predictable and consistent. The Spring and Autumn are very short so winter can be envisaged as between November and March and an 8 month Summer from April to October. January is the coldest month when temperatures can drop down to 50 degrees F whereas June, July and August are the hottest when temperatures can often go above 100 degrees F.
