Cyprus has always been a popular destination for holidaymakers seeking to escape the dreary English weather and spend some time away from home in the sun, relaxing on the beach and generally getting away from it all. But recently, property in Cyprus has become an increasingly popular investment both for those who want a home away from home to escape to at any time of year, and those looking for a reliable way to add to their income by renting out property to holidaymakers.
As if the weather didn’t offer enough appeal, Cyprus boasts excellent nightlife and the locals are known for being incredibly welcoming which makes both going on holiday and living there an appealing prospect for many British people who are tired of the unpredictable weather and high speed lifestyle back home. Friendly and welcoming, the people of Cyprus are used to living life in a far more laid back and relaxed manner and this can really take the weight off the shoulders of those who are usually busy office workers or on their feet at work all day.
Leisure facilities are hugely popular in Cyprus thanks to the wonderful climate, and lovers of golf and water sports will be spoiled for choice when visiting the country – there are countless golf courses and the beaches are well suited for swimming as well as more intense aquatic activities. For those who just want to forget their worries and relax completely, there are spas to pamper clients or perhaps simply relaxing on the sandy beaches is enough to clear the mind of those used to tight schedules and stressful situations.
Another advantage of owning a Cyprus property is that one doesn’t really feel alienated in the country – English is widely spoken, the facilities are generally up to par with those in England, drinking water is clean and fresh. Education needn’t be a problem as schools and universities cater to the young, and there are countless shops and bars where a British holidaymaker will feel right at home.
There are countless advantages to owning a Cyprus property – no more overpriced hotel rooms, a private space to call your own and the luxury of having a home away from home. Moving permanently is also always an option and for those looking to retire could be an ideal choice. Even in the current economic climate holidaymakers will always look out for accommodation and renting your villa out while it is not in use could be a great way to subsidise your income as well. If there is anywhere it is wise to invest in the property market right now, it’s definitely abroad.
