BUYING A PROPERTY IN CYPRUS?
Cyprus is may be a small country, but it's a large island - the third largest in the Mediterranean. With its spectacular scenery and enviable climate, it's no wonder that Aphrodite chose the island as her playground, and since then, mere mortals have been discovering this 'land fit for Gods' for themselves. Most important of all, the island offers peace of mind.
Cyprus us a beautiful island that offers the best of both worlds: Excellent cosmopolitan restaurants and nightclubs, famous wines, beaches where you can sail, windsurf or water-ski and facilities for all kinds of sports such as tennis and horse-riding, or quiet mountain villages, seemingly untouched by the twentieth century.
Over 2800 years of history and culture, have left Cyprus a heritage rich in historical and artistic treasures -- Byzantine monasteries, ruins of Greek and Roman monuments and Venetian castles.
Basking in typically Mediterranean temperatures with very little rain, Cyprus has one of the sunniest and healthiest climates in the Mediterranean with temperatures rarely going below 12 degrees even in winter. Between December and March you'll find snow on the mountains, which gives way to a lush and colourful springtime.
Large English Community
A notable British presence remains to this day and Cyprus has become home to a large ex pat community (estimated at around 50,000), while British tourist trade accounts for the overwhelming majority of the country's tourism income.
English is also widely spoken by the local population, and the legal and land registry systems are largely based on British practices. What's more, luckily for the Brits, they also drive on the left side of the road!
Airports and Roads
Cyprus has two main international airports, Larnaka and Paphos, served by approximately 30 major airlines with many flights from UK and other destinations throughout the week. The island is covered by a network of modern and newly built roads, so getting about is relatively quick and easy.
