DISCOVER NORTH CYPRUS

North Cyprus is an ideal location for property investment, whether you're looking for a second home, somewhere you can buy-to-let, a place to raise your family or some where to retire in the sun.

Cyprus is located in the Eastern Mediterranean with Turkey 40 miles north, Syria 60 miles east, Lebanon 108 miles south-east, Israel 180 miles south-east and Egypt 230 miles south. North Cyprus is a strategic crossroads among Europe, Asia and Africa.

Since 2004 investment into property in Northern Cyprus has surged. Prices are currently half the price of the South and still as low as 30% of the cost of a villa or apartment in other Mediterranean resorts such as Spain. Beautiful and tranquil, the island remains unspoilt and comparatively undeveloped. North Cyprus offer a wealth of beauty, history and culture; the absence of high rise buildings, very low crime rate, and the presence of thousands of years of history put Cyprus on top of any prospective Mediterranean home.

The coastline of North Cyprus offers fine, uncrowded beaches with the mountains providing a lovely backdrop offering good walking. In the spring there are many wild flowers including some endemic to Cyprus.

The seaside town of Kyrenia with its surrounding mountain villages offers all the modern facilities of a European town.

North Cyprus has four major towns, the capital being Lefkosa (Nicosia), which serves as the main administration and business centre. The other main towns Magosa (Famagusta), the country's principal port; Girne (Kyrenia), the main tourist centre well known for its ancient harbour, and Guzelyurt the centre of the citrus fruit industry.
Kyrenia

Situated on the north coast of Cyprus, Kyrenia, with its 6,000 year long history, unique remains of countless civilisations, miles of natural beaches, calm sea, and mild climate is an idyllic Mediterranean town. The town offers the most magnificent scenery on the island with countless shops, markets and local cafés.
The harbour provides a visual feast, with beautiful, whitewashed buildings and colourful boats sheltering under a massive, Byzantine castle. During the day, Kyrenia Harbour is sleepy and relaxed, but as sunset beckons, there is a magical transformation as locals take their evening stroll and the restaurants prepare for their guests.
Strolling through the streets of the old town, you will never be far away from the ruins of the Lusignan walls and towers which originally formed a protective curtain around the town. The castle is now home to many historical artifacts and is the current resting-place of the world's oldest shipwreck.

Rumoured to be the original inspiration for Walt Disney's 'Sleeping Beauty', St Hilarion was built during the crusades offering  stunning views of Kyrenia and the whole of the island's northern coastline.
