Evrychou , a picturesque village of the Nicosia District and the agricultural centre of the "Solea" region, is located about 50 km south-west of Nicosia and 30 km from mount Troodos.
Exactly because of its position, its climatic and - generally - its weather conditions are very nice, Mediterranean like. Here there is neither the cold of Troodo nor the excessive heat of Nicosia or even the humidity of the sea.
Evrychou is built at the east bank of the Kargotis River, at an average altitude of 440 metres. Small streams run down from the slopes and toward the valley, fragmenting the village's landscape.
The village receives an average annual rainfall of about 419 millimetres; fruit-bearing trees (mainly apple, pear, plum, apricot, and peach trees), a few citrus-trees, almond and olive trees, vegetables (mostly potatoes), some legumes, vines (of wine-making varieties), and cereals (mainly barley) are cultivated in the region. Although the entire Solea region is renowned for its fruits and vegetables, Evrychou is particularly known for the quality of its apples.
A variety of natural vegetation, mainly rock-roses, terebinths (turpentine trees), fleabanes, and some scattered pine-trees grow along the slopes of Kargotis's valley.
