The island of Cyprus lies at the very heart of the Mediterranean.
Inhabited and invaded for over 10,000 years, Cyprus is steeped in history; there is an abundant and well-preserved legacy from earlier civilizations, with excellent examples of Roman villas, Byzantine churches and medieval castles. Many locations on the island are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Inevitably such a rich tapestry of inhabitants has created a unique blend of cultural influences, so evident today in the island’s distinctive architecture, costume and cuisine.
Cyprus still has a large English-speaking population owing to the fact that it was a British colony, gaining its independence in 1960 and joining the Commonwealth a year later. Today the country is member of the European Union and boasts one of the most thriving economies in the region.
This economic stability, the developed infrastructure, a comfortable year round climate, easy access from European cities, stretches of clean sandy beaches, beautiful and varied terrain (including the picturesque pine-clad Troodos Mountains), a low crime rate, welcoming and hospitable people, excellent dining opportunities and lively nightlife, all combine to make Cyprus the ideal location in which to own an overseas home.
