This strategic location ensured development of the island as an international business center with high-quality service, vast infrastructures and great deal of entertainment facilities. Living and business conditions there are more than comfortable. Cyprus differs from most developed countries by its minimal crime rate, high living standards and relatively low prices. That's why many tempted foreigners are buying real estate there.
For many years this island has been a second home for many people coming from all over the world. Those who've never been to Cyprus should really go and see what it's like. During 320 days in a year the island is cherished by caressing sun. Cyprus is washed by waves of Mediterranean Sea that gave life to gorgeous Aphrodite, according to ancient Greek myths.

The county tax ranges from 30 to 100 Cyprus Pounds depending on the property size. The tax covers expenses on garbage cleaning and street lighting.
