• Researched your destination, and the local customs and laws

A Place in the Sun Cyprus – About Cyprus

Cyprus has a unique Mediterranean feel with many cultural influences, especially following the Turkish invasion. The ratio of Greek to Turkish Cypriots is roughly four to one, which shows itself in the land occupied by the Turks in the north and the Greek Cypriot’s in the south. Whilst infrastructure in Cyprus has improved considerably over the past years, expats should remember that it still operates in a very relaxed way. The local Cypriot dialect is Greek and is most widely spoken on the island. However, English is also spoken and understood by many locals, especially the younger generation. It is also used on signage, making getting around Cyprus more manageable for non-Greek residents.

A Place in the Sun Cyprus – Buying a Property in Cyprus

The trend recently has been for expats moving to Cyprus to buy a property, rather than renting. Properties in the ‘Greek South’ tend to be newer and more expensive than in the ‘Turkish North’. That said, property across the whole island is cheaper than in most Western and Northern European states.

The following site has a selection of properties: http://www.easyrealestatecyprus.com/index.jsp

You can currently expect to pay approximately 1600€ per square meter to buy an apartment in the centre of a city. Outside the centre the prices drop to 1325€.

A Place in the Sun Cyprus – Education and Schools in Cyprus

The majority of expats will choose an international school, especially if they only plan to stay in Cyprus for a few years. This option eliminates any concerns surrounding the language barrier.

The following site will help you find a suitable international school: http://www.aphroditehillsproperties.com

A Place in the Sun Cyprus – Travel in Cyprus

Most expats will choose to drive a car, rather than rely on public transport. The main cities have buses and taxis but there is no operational railway service and public transport between towns isn’t always very accessible.
