The village of Maroni is found built about 35 kilometers southwest of Larnaca. It has an average altitude of 70 meters, the altitude reaching 200 meters in the north of the village, and has a distance of 2 kilometers from the sea. The village receives an average annual rainfall of about 380 millimeters; citrus fruits (lemons, grapefruits, oranges), cereals, forage plants, olive and locust trees, and various types of vegetables are cultivated in the region. Several greenhouses have been installed in the area for the cultivation of early vegetables. Stockbreeding in the village is limited. There are four units of sheep and goat breeding, two poultry farms, a hatchery, and an ultramodern pigsty. The village preserves -to a great extend -its traditional architecture with the narrow streets, the stone-made houses with local stone, the houses with the picturesque upper levels with balconies, the arches and the front doors with chiseled frames. In the context of preserving this heritage, a large part of the old village has been deemed as a landmark and many houses have been renovated in the same style. Maroni existed since the Medieval times. In old maps it is found marked as Marova. According to De Masse Latri, the village was a feud that belonged to Royal estates during the period of Frank domination. However he erroneously places it in the region of Kythrea.
