Hi all,
We intend to move to Cyprus in October of 2018 having visited the island numerous times. We are coming out in October of this year for a couple of weeks to stay in Polis to see if this is a place that could be ticked as a possible location to live / retire to.
I know there must be some expats on here who currently live in or are close to Polis and was wondering if we could pick your brains for the pros and cons of living there instead of being nearer to Paphos.
Any views/opinions on best estate agents ( or good ones at least..!! ) that we could use for when we do move next year and if anyone would be willing to meet up with us for a social chat during our stay in October would be great.

Hopefully will see you soon and thanks for any information you send.

Sam & Darren

In the winter it can be :grin:

We have a couple of members who live over that direction but don’t necessarily ‘log in’ every day…give them a bit of time

Certainly not a ghost town Popsicle (even in Winter M.A.D.)

We live in Polis and after 2½ years here we know we made the right choice (although we don't crow too much about it in case we get a flood of Expats moving here and spoiling our secret piece of paradise! :shock:

We have everything we need here - shops, tavernas, miles of unspoilt beach, Latchi harbour, close proximity to the Akamas peninsula, Blue Lagoon, beautiful walks along the coast and around the dams, a hospital, a good bus service, and many, many other facilities and amenities. There is a thriving expat community here which gets together at various times for organised charity events, coach trips, boules, dancing in the street and general chit chat without becoming a 'Little Britain' which seems to be the case in certain other places!

The community charge here is only €120 per year and we have clean streets, our bins emptied twice a week and never have water rationing in the Summer. We also have a micro climate which means that we have less humidity than Paphos in the height of Summer.

All in all, life is good, and we would be happy to meet up with you in October to introduce you to the area and other Expats here.

PM me when you plan to come and we can make arrangements.
