Our New Life In Cyprus
Me and my husband both came to live in Cyprus in March 2004. We moved from a small town in the North West of England, close to Manchester. We were both in our 40's & decided it was the right time for us to make the move.
We rented a 3 bedroom bungalow in Jan 2004, arranged for some of our furniture from UK to be shipped to Cyprus and on March 3rd, we flew out to Paphos. Our 2 cats (Tilly & Bart) and our dog, Indiana all arrived in Larnaca - from Heathrow airport.
We live in Ypsonas, a suburb of Limassol although it was once a small village - it is growing quite quickly. It's approx 10 to 15 minutes from the town centre & tourist area of Limassol.
My husband builds wooden fencing & pergolas and between us, we run a holiday home management company.
In his spare time, Clement buys & sells stamps or other Cypriot memorabilia.
We love our new life and have no regrets on leaving the UK. Our friends come to stay with us and we get to spend quality time with them, taking pleasure in showing them our latest findings on our island.
We have visited Cyprus for holidays for many years and it was a longtime dream to eventually live here.
