Many people today look at the international news and wonder where in the world it’s possible to live safely and securely. The number of options are becoming increasingly limited but more and more people are recognising that one of the best options is the island of Cyprus. In fact the French travel insurance company Insurly, rated it 5th safest in the world in 2020 (https://insurly.fr)
For many years, Cyprus has been the preferred choice for a host of different nationalities who have come together to create an eclectic, multinational community, giving Cyprus its unique flavour.
Cyprus has long been recognised as a safe country to live in. For many years, homes were left unlocked, cars too, and still today, there is very little crime on the island. The outdoor lifestyle appeals to expatriates from colder climes and families feel content that their children can play safely outside, away from the lure of electronic devices, enjoying a happy and healthy childhood.
Hundreds of safe beaches, perfect for family days out dot the coastline, nearly seventy of which were awarded the coveted European Blue Flag Award (www.blueflag.global) for safety, cleanliness and facilities in 2021, giving yet more options for your leisure time.
The healthy lifestyle of the island is further enhanced by the freshest of food grown or produced on the island. It’s little wonder that the Mediterranean Diet is recognised as one of the healthiest by BBC Good Food when you see the wealth of fresh produce in supermarkets or used to prepare delicious Mediterranean cuisine in the myriad tavernas and upmarket restaurants the island boasts. Don’t forget too, the exceptional quality of wine produced in Cypriot vineyards which now ranks amongst some of the best in the world according to the wine site The Buyer.
Education is also a vital consideration for families and, again, the island delivers. The standard of education on the island is excellent, with private schools teaching internationally recognised curricula. After passing A levels or the island’s Apolytirion qualification, students can access international universities or stay on the island to undertake degrees at one of the island’s many outstanding universities.
Part of your island education must come in the form of learning about Cyprus’ rich history which spans thousands of years. Almost everywhere you travel on the island will find you amongst ancient ruins or passing magnificent castles which bear testament to the island’s visitors from long ago. Talk to the locals and they will regale you with traditional stories on how the island was formed, the many gods and goddesses linked to the island and, of course, its many heroes.
Many of the reasons why people choose to relocate to Cyprus also apply to investors on the island. Cyprus’ increasing popularity means that more accommodation is needed – for permanent residents and for tourism, giving opportunities for rental income from property investments. Property prices have only just begun to recover from the economic storms of the last two decades and now is one of the best times to consider an investment.
If you’re tempted to relocate to Cyprus, as an individual or as a family, you won’t be disappointed. Modern luxurious homes now built to exacting environmental standards are waiting to become your new home or an investment property. All that remains is for you to choose where on this beautiful island you wish to live or invest, decide on the style of your perfect home and speak to Blue Sky for advice on making the most of your move to Cyprus.
