Lifestyle in Cyprus

The ideal weather and ideal location define the ideal lifestyle of this magnificent Mediterranean island. With more that 340 days of sunshine, residents and tourists get to enjoy the clear warm waters of Cyprus throughout the year.

In November you can swim in the warm Mediterranean in the morning and ski on the slopes of Troodos Mountains in the afternoon.

The sun has an incredible effect on the Cypriot lifestyle and reveals itself in many ways, especially through the diet and characteristics of the Cypriots.

Two of the main industries on the island, tourism and farming prosper from the sun. Cyprus produces a wide array of fruit, vegetables and free-range meat resulting in a delicious and healthy diet evolved from many influences. Greece, Armenia , Lebanon , Syria and Italy have all left their mark on the Cypriot cuisine.

Dining in Cyprus is a very sociable affair and is usually the main reason for friends to meet friends and family to meet family!

Cyprus also has a long tradition of winemaking that goes back over 4,000 years. In ancient times wine was a major source of wealth for the island. Approximately 10% of the island is covered in vineyards. The wines are best sampled at the annual wine festival in Limassol in September.

Cypriots widely speak English as a result of the British influence, and of course to accommodate the great numbers of English speaking property owners who have purchased properties throughout Cyprus as holiday homes or as investments, and to also cater for the many British tourist that visit Cyprus every year.
