In the same direction to the north of Pafos (approximately 23km from the town) is the village of Kato Akourdalia, built on a hill in the traditional architecture of the area. According to one tradition the village acquired its name from the French phrase "a cour de l' eau" meaning "in the course of the water". Another interpretation refers to the word "korda", that is, the long strong rope made in the village.
This small picturesque village offers a generous sense of serenity and calmness, accompanied by the beautiful chirrup of the birds. The natural environment of the village, with the Chrysochou valley below, is rich in vegetation, vines, carob trees, almond trees, citrus trees and grain, inviting the visitor into an adventure of exploration. On the outskirts of the village is the Folk Art museum and a short hike away is the restored medieval church of Ayia Paraskevi. Kato Akourdalia is also part of the Laona project.
