The first neighborhood in Larnaca we are going to explore is Aradippou.

Neighborhoods in Larnaca: Pervolia
Next, we are going to explore the community of Pervolia. This coastal village, situated 16km from Larnaca town center is occupied by just 3,000 people. Although Pervolia is one of the smaller villages in Cyprus it sees up to 5,000 visitors each day during the height of the summer season due to its beaches.
This peaceful location is ideal for holiday homes or permanent residences if you prefer peace and quiet. The natural environment and scenery of Pervolia is one major reason why local as well as foreign residents choose to invest in property in this particular area. As we mentioned, the beaches are stunning but Pervolia also offers beautiful plantations that grow okras, artichokes as well as melons and watermelons. There is also rare flora to be found in the area.
Much like other neighborhoods in Larnaca, Pervolia has a range of property types but is arguably most renowned for its luxury villas with sea views. Of course, there are still beautiful apartments and traditional houses in the area. However, this is definitely the area to explore if you want a beautiful villa with views of the surrounding nature and sea.
Livadia has a very interesting history regarding the craft of basketry and is even included in the UNESCO Intangible World Heritage List. The municipality of Livadia is located on the north side of Larnaca, bordering the village of Oroklini. Again, much like Pervolia, it has a small population of 7,205 residents. This makes it an ideal location to invest in property if you prefer a small community.
This neighborhood has an extensive range of facilities including popular supermarkets, kindergartens and a high school. The educational facilities in the area are very popular with locals and due to this, Livadia is very family orientated.
The properties in Livadia range from family houses to large luxury villas and the prices range depending on the type of property you want to invest in.

These areas are located next to one another and have seen a large amount of redevelopment with more planned in the coming years. In fact, these developments are set to create over 4,000 jobs and positively impact the infrastructure of Larnaca. Furthermore, the start of 2020 saw a 2.9% increase in permits granted for construction indicating Larnaca has much more to come in terms of real estate projects.
The center of Larnaca and new marina have all the necessary facilities and amenities nearby. This includes numerous bars, restaurants and shops as well as the famous Finikoudes beach being located right next to everything. These neighborhoods in Larnaca are definitely suited to people who prefer to be in the midst of everything and have everything they need in close proximity. However, this area does not mean you lack views. With Larnaca being a coastal city, the views of the sea are accessible in most area; the center and the marina having some of the best.
