The distinct lack of British summertime, those long working hours, the stress of making ends meet and the rising cost of living, it really is no wonder why more and more Brits are taking the plunge and opting for a better way of life abroad. , Furniture Limassol
Whether you’re planning on relocating in retirement, you have family and children in tow or you’re a couple or a singleton going in search of a better life abroad, Cyprus could be just the answer.
Since 2004 the island of Cyprus has been in the EU, (although European Union rules and regulations do only apply to the southern part of Cyprus.) However this means that individuals from other EU countries have the right to move and live permanently in Cyprus.
Located in the Mediterranean and lying south of Turkey, Cyprus is accessible in four and a half hours from the UK. The island is surrounded by beautiful beaches, enhanced by historic sites and modernised by an abundance of shopping areas. With its relaxed slow paced way of life, not to mention heavenly year round climate, Cyprus offers the budding expat the perfect balance between social and work life.
Further adding its appeal the Cyprus government has made concerted efforts to be as tax attractive as possible, particularly to entice retirees to the island. As citizens of an EU country, British pensioners are free to move to Cyprus and enjoy their pension taxed at a maximum of 5%.
Cyprus Luxury Furniture Packs are an experienced UK based firm who provide complete furniture solutions for properties in Cyprus. Company directors Mark Sykes and Simon Gawthorpe are familiar with the Cypriot appeal having helped many families, young and old, set up a new life and home out there.
“Cyprus has a lot to offer Brits seeking a new life in the sun” commented Mr Gawthorpe. “The Cypriot people have a special knack of making visitors feel at home as soon as they step off the plane. They are extremely welcoming and friendly – that added to the unhurried pace of daily life makes Cyprus an instant favourite of anyone who goes there.”
Business partner Mark Sykes added, “We were the first independent UK retailer to supply furniture packages for villas and apartments in Cyprus. We spend a considerable amount of time out in Cyprus working to ensure people looking to furnish properties out here have access to good quality, stylish furniture at a reasonable price. Cyprus is a wonderful place full of wonderful people; the perfect location to start a new life in the sun or relax in your final years.”
Deservedly nicknamed the ‘Island of Love,’ Cyprus could very well be the relocation of your dreams.
