Contact the Cyprus Tourist Office. They have excellent free publications including long distance walks, mountain villages. They are most helpful and I believe one brochure was called Off the Beaten Track, keep away from the towns and you will find the beauty of the villages, whether coast or mountains.

I agree that you can get a lot of good info for free from a Cyprus Tourist Office. Now I would like to suggest a couple of things. If you are into nature then you should spend time in Paphos forest, Troodos forest and Akamas peninsula. In Paphos forest you may visit the venetian bridges and could also spot some moufflon. I would also suggest that you go on a visit to the Walled part of Nicosia.

There are many picturesque villages in the mountains.

And there are also beaches around that are almost empty.

For extensive info on Cyprus nature (beaches, trails, dams, etc) you could take a look at www.natureofcyprus.org .

If you need more info on places (meaning villages) to stay, then contact me.
