Located in a beautiful Mediterranean setting, Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, covering an area of 9300 square kilometres.
Cyprus is the legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, Goddess of love and beauty, and today is an island of great diversity, from sandy beaches, vine clad slopes to cedar-covered hilltops.
Visitors can enjoy on average 340 days of sunshine per year, shimmering blue sea during the summer and during the short winter enjoy ski trips to the Troodos Mountains.
Foreign residents have many reasons for choosing Cyprus as their home: Its strategic geographical position means that all the major cities of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa are just a short flight away. Living conditions are extremely pleasant and relatively inexpensive.
Cyprus offers particularly attractive tax rates on pension/investment income brought into the country by non-Cypriot residents. Compared to other countries such as Spain, the process of purchasing property in Cyprus is relatively simple.
