Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Southern Cyprus comprises a modern infrastructure with a landscape varying between sandy beaches, rugged coastlines, rocky hills and forest-covered mountains.
Leaving the urban lifestyles for the “seaside”, looking for a new build villa with pool or perhaps a small country house to renovate, Southern Cyprus is known as an area of continued stability and growth.
Nicosia (Lefkosia), the capital of Cyprus, has many quaint and ancient shops.
Limassol, the island's second city and the most important port, it is also the focus of Cyprus' wine industry.
The Troodos Mountains, at 1952m (6404ft), are the highest peaks in Cyprus, lying on the approaches to Mount Olympus, with a summit that is invariably snow-covered in winter and has skiing slopes and facilities.
