Are you looking to relocate to a warmer climate? Perhaps you’re someone who can work from anywhere, and you now fancy being near the sea? There’s something very healing and magical about living on the coast. So why not consider searching for property for sale in Paphos?
What does Paphos have to Offer?
One of the first things you’ll have to do is work out what you need and which part of Cyprus is best for you. Paphos Cyprus is now 1 of the most popular for these key reasons:
- History and charm
- Coral Bay and sea caves
Looking for property for sale in Paphos Cyprus is a great choice. This is because it’s the more relaxed and laid-back Cyprus towns while offering all the amenities and services you could hope for. As a beautiful coastal town, you’re bound to be charmed by its beauty. For this reason, there are many properties for sale overlooking the sea and Coral Bay.
History and Charm
As a UNESCO heritage site, Paphos Cyprus offers some great sites for you to visit and the most stunning mosaics in the world. Ancient Cyprus was the center of Aphrodite’s cult, and you’ll be able to see signs of that ancient religion across Kato, Paphos. You’ll also be able to visit the Kings’ Tombs in the north of Paphos amongst other sites. Regardless of how passionate you are about history, you’ll appreciate how beautiful everything is around you.
Coral Bay and the Sea Caves
The famous sea caves are located in Peyia village in the Paphos District. You can also actually access them through Coral Bay. They are both beautiful and biologically fascinating due to the nature they hold. You’ll also be able to find properties for sale that overlook this stunning view if that’s what you’re interested in. Of course, it’s worth remembering that tourists do flock to this area. Therefore, make sure you ask your property developer how this would impact any neighboring properties.
Where to Find the Best Property for Sale in Paphos
When researching Paphos Cyprus, you’ll be split for choices between the main town, the sea, or even the neighboring villages in the Paphos District area:
- Paphos city
The best thing to do if you can is to drive around the area and get a sense of what you prefer. For example, Tala is a gorgeous hillside village, but Peyia overlooks Coral Bay. Within the actual city, you have 2 distinct areas: Ktima and Kato Paphos. Ktima is the older part and tends to be more residential, whereas Kato is the city center with the shopping area and government buildings.
Within Paphos town, you also have the Universal area, currently one of the most popular properties for sale. You can therefore expect higher prices than in, for example, Peyia or Chloraka villages. Again, the choice is yours, with Chloraka being a bit closer to Paphos town and perhaps, slightly more lively.
The property type you’re interested in will most likely have an impact on the area you’re considering. For instance, you’re more likely to find your dream villa or bungalow out of town. Although, you can find apartment buildings both within the city and its suburbs.
- Aphrodite hills
The hills surrounding Paphos offer both space and quiet. You’ll also be able to access various villages that offer all the modern facilities you might need. However, these aren’t crazy hills and only go up to about 200 to 500 meters in height. Not only can you enjoy some stunning views but you’ll also get a pleasant sea breeze in the summer.
All 3 areas offer some high-end luxury apartment buildings and townhouses. There are, in fact, other areas that you can also explore that offer other properties for sale. For example, Tremithousa is another local village with a cultural center, shops, and restaurants. As you can imagine, each area has a slightly different feel. So, simply make sure you review everything your property developer has on offer that you might be able to picture living in.
Final Thoughts on Looking for Property for Sale in Paphos
Can we conclude where the best properties are in Paphos? There are excellent properties throughout Paphos District, and it depends on your needs and preferences. If you prefer more significant properties with more than 2 or 3 bedrooms and bathrooms, then you’re more likely to find something that suits you away from town.
You can enjoy the ease of living within a managed property with all its facilities both in the city and outside. When it comes down to it, you need to know your budget and how much space and ‘city buzz’ you need. From there, your property developer can guide you to your dream home.
