What would you buy: a villa in the area of sea caves or an apartment overlooking the salt lake? We understand, the choice is not obvious at all, and it is desirable to see what other options are available. So we suggest you look at five distinctive apartments in Cyprus, which we have combined into one selection.

The prices for Cypriot real estate rose last year by more than 8%. Most often, Cypriots and Europeans buy housing in the country. At the moment, you have to pay an average of $1500-2100 for «square» of the apartment with one bedroom in local cities. We made a selection of affordable housing in Cyprus within $200,000.
