Cyprus offering inland delights
Property investors looking to invest in Cyprus are heading inland, it would appear.
While the traditional appeal of the country focuses on the azure Mediterranean waters, beaches and sunshine, the country has been busy trying to sell its other attractions to visitors, with tourism chiefs arranging a series of events to showcase the history, culture, food and drink, hospitality and other aspects of the island that have been neglected.
With a rich history influenced by a multitude of cultures, numerous archeological as well as cultural legacies, plus snow-capped mountains offering skiing, many will conclude that there is indeed a wealth of attractions the tourists have missed by staying in the main resorts.
Considering how the movement of tourists has significance for buy-to-let investors, this may be just as well, for right now, those looking for property on the island are increasingly looking farther afield for bargains - and finding them.
As an example, property writer Kevin Moore told Ready2Invest this week that properties in small villages on the coast can be bought for 50 per cent less than in the traditional tourist honeypots.
