Cyprus - the jewel of the Mediterranean Sea, an island of catching natural beauty, from mountaneous terrains to amazingly beautuful beaches. Cosmopilitan yet traditional with excellent facilities to the traveler offering a feast for your eyes, Cyprus is rapidly becoming a key trading centre between Europe and the Middle East, with many offshore companies and global companies choosing to open offices here. The Capital of Cyprus, Nicosia, and the trading centre, Limassol, have seen huge expansion both in terms of trade and flourishing 'society life'-bars, restaurants, theatres, leisure facilities and shops have grown to meet the ever increasing consumer demand.
Away from the commercial centres, Cyprus offers unparalleled coastlines - miles and miles of unspoilt coastline, the majestic Mount Olympus in the Troodos mountain range, historical sites and innumerable places of interest to visit.
Add to this a year round climate which offers fantastic summer sun, a mild winter in which people still hold regular outdoor barbeques, and an opportunity for people of all ages to participate in a wide range of year round activities, from walking, skiing, climbing and cycling, through to water sports, extreme sports, sailing and simply relaxing and taking life easy.
During the summer months, the popular holiday resorts of Protaras, Ayia Napa, Larnaca and Limassol really come alive, with a pace of life to suit all, from those who wish to escape from it all, or for those who wish to party until the early hours. A chance to spend days out cruising on boats along the coastline, eat traditional foods at many of the picturesque harbours - the choice really is endless, and with so much variety, it really does require years to fully appreciate the warmth and friendliness that makes Cyprus a fantastic place to live and visit. Cyprus is one of the most popular places for buying property.
