The abandoned Turkish Cypriot village of Faleia lies in the Paphos District of Cyprus.

The village is situated close to Statos, Agios Fotios, Galataria and Kolineia villages.

Faleia Village was occupied by around 200 Turkish Cypriot residents until 1974.

The villagers left for North Cyprus soon after the Turkish invasion, with half leaving immediately and the rest in 1975 under United Nations escort.

The village has no residents anymore and the houses have fallen into disrepair, with many of them now ruins. There are a few shepherds that use some of the homes to shelter their livestock.
