The birthplace of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty, Cyprus has long been a choice holiday destination and enjoys a warm, sunny climate almost all year round. Most of the local residents speak English and many can also speak Russian. Cyprus has excellent air links to all of Europe and the rest of the world. Thanks to its historical ties to Britain, Cyprus also has numerous schools that follow the British curriculum and many students go on to study at UK universities.
Purchasing property in Cyprus is a fast and relatively simple route to permanent EU residency which is valid for life and can be inherited.
