The village is located approximately 410 metres above sea level and therefore enjoys the benefit of being slightly cooler in the very hot summer months. Villa Kitromilia, due to its position, enjoys refreshing breezes that blow down from the hills and help to cool the air on very hot days. It is believed that the village was founded during the Byzantine period. The village has a small supermarket, post office and two coffee shops. The area boasts many archaeological sites, dating to the prehistoric times. The village church is dedicated to St. Mamas and it possesses numerous old icons belonging to the older church which was of the 15th-16th century. The church is also the Cathedral of the suffrage Episcopal seat of Arsinoe which has been built next to it, where there is also a Byzantine museum containing many old icons and other religious items.

This superb Villa Kitromilia has been completed to a very high standard and offers luxury accommodation together with a private 10m x 5m swimming pool set amongst a beautifully landscaped garden. There is also wheelchair access to the property for those visitors with limited mobility. The villa was built using traditional methods. The stone used was local stone from the area, and from the land the villas stands on itself, hence the varied colours and shades of the finished building. The stone was cut to size and then used to build the outer wall of the building, meaning the overall finish is more in keeping with the traditional village stone buildings.
