Koili (Killi) has a population of 450 with about 25 non-Cypriot families living there. It is situated 9kms from Paphos and 33kms from Polis.
With its hilltop vantage point, there are spectacular views of Paphos and the surrounding hills. As it is a small village there is only one restaurant, one supermarket, no kiosks and two coffee shops. The nearest police station and hospital are both in Paphos.
If you fancy a spot of fishing, the Mavrokolympos river is ideal and you can also take a look at the disused watermills lying on the bed of the river.
Or for the more energetic, Tsada golf course is only a short drive away.
All the local houses and churches in Koili are made with local stone. The old church of Agios Mamas in Koili was ruined by a massive earthquake in 1955 and is now covered by a trimithia tree. Before the earthquake, the whole village and the locals of the surrounding villages would visit Agios Mamas to celebrate the end of Easter, and also celebrate the end of their fasting.
The church in the village square, Panagia Chryseleousis, replaced an older church which had stood in the same spot since the late 15th/early 16th century. It was completely rebuilt using stone from the local quarry, which is now disused.
