ABOUT CYPRUS

CYPRUS

Situated in the sunny Northeastern end of the Mediterranean basin, at the crossroads of Europe, Africa and Asia, is the beautiful and sunny island of CYPRUS.

Cyprus has a subtropical climate with very mild winters on the coast and warm to hot summers. It has 340 dry days per year, with rain occurring mainly in the winter.

The mountain areas reaching a maximum altitude of 1952m, offer much cooler conditions allowing skiing in the winter and cool breezes in the summer months.

In short, Cyprus has a temperate climate and the most pleasant winter in the Mediterranean EU. Among all cities in this part of the EU, Limassol has the warmest winters; in the period January – February average temperature is 17–18 °C (63–64 °F) during the day and 9-10 °C (48–50 °F) at night. Small wonder then that it is among the best places to settle in or make an investment in real estate in the world. With money to spare, shrewd investors have backed their instincts and made an investment in Cyprus property.   

Long sandy beaches are washed by the blue Mediterranean waters , charming unspoilt villages nestle in the slopes of the Troodos mountains, historic Byzantine churches, medieval castles and ancient ruins paint the rich and diverse picture that Cyprus is today.
