Prastio Avdimou is located 38 km west of Limassol. The village has existed since the medieval times. In old maps found, the Prastio Avdimou is recorded as "prastio" but also as "prasmo". Some argue that the name comes from the French medieval word "Prasti", which means field. Another version argues that the name comes from the word "suburb" which means settlement near the city.
