    The site is located at the southern-central part of Cyprus. Almost the entire site is mountainous, with the higher peak at Stavrovouni Monastery (688m). The boundaries of the site coincide with the delimitation line of Stavrovouni Main State Forest. The climate of the area is characterized by dry, hot summers and mild rainy winters. The mean yearly rainfall ranges from 449 to 556 mm. Pine forest is the dominant habitat of the site. A great percentage of this forest was destroyed by fire several years ago. The area was reforested by the construction of level terraces by bulldozers along the contour lines. The species used for the reforestation of the area were Pinus brutia, Pinus pinea and Cupressus sempervirens. The understorey of the forest is composed of Olea europaea, Ceratonia siliqua, Genista fasselata, Calycotome villosa, Pistacia terebinthus, Cistus spp., Ptilostemon chamaepeuce, Lavandula stoechas, Sarcopoterium spinosum and Thymus capitatus.
