Cyprus an Unforgettable Destination
Steeped in myth, legend and tradition, Cyprus has a rich cultural heritage dating back over 9000 year. Today, this very modern territory blends its history with the comforts and conveniences of a contemporary European lifestyle.
As the third largest island in the Mediterranean, it has long been a crossroads between three continents. The island’s landscape ranges from sandy beaches to pine-covered mountains and this, combined with an ideal climate, friendly communities and prospering economy, makes Cyprus a first choice for investing in a home away from home.
Quality of Life
With a remarkably low crime rate, 1/6 of the European average, Cyprus offers security and peace of mind for home owners. Goods and services in Cyprus are more reasonably priced, yet offer the same quality as elsewhere in Europe. Local markets sell an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables, fish and meat at a fraction of European prices, while large modern supermarkets stock a full range of local and imported goods.
Climate, Language & People
Cyprus enjoys one of the healthiest climates in the world, with mild winters, long warm summers and over 330 days of sunshine a year. English is widely spoken and the island is renowned for its warm welcome, hospitality and friendly people.
International airports in Larnaca and Paphos are served by over 30 airlines, including the island’s national carrier, operating regular flights to more than 260 destinations worldwide. Shipping services through the ports of Larnaca and Limassol include cruise liners and cargo vessels, operated by the island’s merchant fleet, the fifth largest in the world.
Telecommunications facilities in Cyprus rank third in the world with direct-dial access to over 200 countries, cell phone networks and advanced internet connections, including ISDN and ADSL.
Radio, TV and satellite services are also available in English, along with both local and international English language publications.
An important one to remember when you’re away from home. However, as in the United Kingdom, cars are right-hand drive and driven on the left; signs are displayed in Greek and English. A valid driver’s licence from your home country or an international driver’s licence permits you to drive legally in Cyprus. The extensive network of roads and motorways makes driving convenient and safe.
Lastly, perhaps one of the most important things learn about Cyprus is that it is truly what you make it. Whether taking that important first step to a new Mediterranean lifestyle or simply looking for a short-term change of scenery, Cyprus is an unforgettable landscape of opportunity and high quality living. With its enchanting history, prospering economy and friendly disposition, this precious little island is the perfect backdrop to new beginning, full of possibilities. And it all starts with Aphrodite Hills.
