Cyprus is a truly amazing Country; the varied landscape is stunning from breath taking views from the mountains to welcoming
beaches. In the morning you can be skiing on the slopes of Troodos then by lunchtime enjoying lunch in the warm sunshine at
one of the many bars. Evenings with a cold beer or glass of wine is a great way to end a day. Planning that summer BBQ (or
indeed many outdoor social occasions during the summer months) is assured. Meeting new people, tasting diverse cuisine
and generally adopting a slower pace of life is perfect for many.

In the Paphos area sandy beaches are scarce, most head for Coral Bay, this is a fine and especially for young children, a safe expanse of sandy beach though can become extremely crowded during the summer and tourist season (Throughout the winter months the sand can be washed into the sea, the local Council are then tasked with the works to dredge the sand back on shore). Other small coves can be found though are generally formed of shingle.


Winter and the festive period (Christmas) is a very quiet time in Paphos and many bars and restaurants close during this period. With the tourist season over and ex-pats returning to the UK to be with their families Paphos can feel deserted. Winters can be very cold, more so the evenings. Heavy rainfall and even snow is common, temperatures can fall close to freezing. Kerosene heaters are popular to try and keep homes warm. Contrasting is the summer months which can seem busy and especially hot with high humidity in July and August, the temperature can reach into the mid 30’s c.

Shopping in Paphos is reasonable, you will find stores such as Lidl, Carrefour, Superhome Center (similar to B&Q) and Sports Direct. There are a number of franchised outlets including M&S though generally sell end of season stock. A new shopping mail has been built in Paphos (November 13). Numerous food shops are to be found all competing for your trade, from kiosks, to local and large supermarkets and British outlets. McDonalds and other fast food chains are also represented.

Paphos appeals to the retired. After endless years of demanding employment, long hours and for many, struggling to find the funds to pay the ever increasing bills Cyprus will be a welcomed freedom from this challenging existence. Many who retire to Cyprus settle well and enjoy the benefits of a slower pace of life.

Families also settle well though will generally stay in Cyprus for 3 to 5 years. If having sold your property in the UK then finding your back on to the UK property ladder and employment can be tough, more so if you have purchased a property in Cyprus and are dependent on a sale. Thoroughly research the Paphos property market. Once you have purchased your home in the sun there may come a time when you want your money back. In Paphos alone there are a great number of unsold properties.

Also to consider is your CV, pool cleaning for three years may seem an easy way to earn a basic living though will not impress a perspective employer should you decide to return to the UK.

Other than the retired or financially secured earning a living will be important. Finding work in Paphos can be extremely difficult. Speaking Greek (Cypriot) will open more doors for you. If you are happy to spend your days pool cleaning or gardening then it may be possible to earn a very basic living during the summer months. Another alternative is to commute to one of the more Cypriot cosmopolitan towns such as Nicosia or Limassol to find work.

Give some thought to your children when they leave school. Paphos is mainly a farming/tourist region, after spending tens thousands of euros on a (paid for) private education is working in the local bar really ideal ?

Most families with younger children enjoy the safer environment though sadly a once crime free Island is seeing a disturbing increase in law-breaking, more so burglaries of residential homes and Paphos is no exception. Home owners have had to install / improve their security to keep homes safe. You may hear comments such as “crime is worse in the UK” maybe, but this will not replace your valuables should you become victim. Rubbish left in open places is an on-going problem and the British have formed “clean up” action groups who regularly volunteer their time to clean beaches and public areas.

Living in Cyprus it can be easy to think of Britain but in the Sun. It is worth remembering Cyprus including Paphos has a strong Cypriot culture and principles. Should this be important, after all we are all Europeans ?. Well, almost all British ex-pats do not have even a basic understanding of the Cypriot language. They speak in English to the Cypriots, watch British TV (mostly illegally) and expect the same ethics as in the UK. Health and safety standards may be different or not what you are use to. As with any Country the Cypriots have their own traditions and culture. You may occasionally meet a Cypriot who is openly offended he is expected to conduct himself with British values.

> DEC 13: PAPHOS FORUM......I once had a Customs officer (at Paphos Post Office) ask to open a parcel which I had just gone in to collect......The parcel contained a pocket Flip video camera which I had bought on Ebay. We got chatting about the camera, which then went on to other things, families, etc. Because we got on so well, she waived her entitlement to charge me import duty and VAT.

> DEC 13: PAPHOS FORUM......Cyprus is a great place to live, and once you reach a certain age (and that age differs for all of us) will continue to be a great place to live provided you have a partner, family and friends around you when health problems arise with more frequency as they inevitably will.
