Paphos is perhaps the busiest and most famous of the Cypriot holiday resorts and there is a lot of property for sale in Paphos. A firm favourite with the Brits as well as other European holiday makers, Paphos is the perfect destination for a sun, sea and sand vacation.
Paphos is a coastal town on Cyprus’ southwest coast. It is said to be the town where Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, rose from the sea inside a beautiful shell. And she couldn’t have picked a nicer place. The old town of Paphos is famed for its archaeological relics, including some fine Roman mosaics that are well worth a visit, and as such it is a UNESCO world heritage site.
But most visitors to Paphos are here for one thing and one thing alone; miles and miles of golden sandy beaches, lapped by the azure waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Of course, there’s more here for those who are looking for it. Adventure sports enthusiasts are well catered for, and if you take a short drive away from the coast you will find breathtaking scenery populated by sleepy hamlets and the occasional surprise taverna where you can pass the afternoon listening to the crickets and watching the world turn.
As well as being a beautiful place to visit, Paphos can be an excellent location for property investment. Its perennial popularity means that people return here year after year and rentals on buy-to-let properties should be fairly easy to secure.
Studio flats/apartments in Paphos start at under £30,000. For this you can get a large studio in Coral Bay with communal pool and just 5 minutes walk from the beach.
