Welcome to Solea Valley
The valley’s reputation as a strategic refuge was furthered in the 1950s, when it served as the prime hideout area for Ethniki Organosi tou Kypriakou Agona (EOKA; National Organisation for the Cypriot Struggle) revolutionists during their anti-British campaigns. With its concealed terrain and proximity to Nicosia, it was an ideal location.
Today, it’s still perfect for accessing the mountains and beyond, with roads to both the east and west. The main village in the valley is Kakopetria, which is convenient for day trips and longer stays, with decent hotels and good facilities.
