Pervolia is a typical Cypriot village, which can be described as idyllic. You will not find any big hotel complexes with animation around the clock. Instead of this you will find charming and helpful people who will let you be a part of their community and who will welcome you with open arms.
There are a few supermarkets, fish taverns and restaurants in Pervolia, while a number of Bank barnches are located in the adjacent villages of Meneou and Kiti.

Near by Cape Kiti there is a sandy beach which is about 45 minutes walking away, also served by a bus route.
