More holiday news from Cyprus

Irene has just sent in her latest news of what is going on in Cyprus.

Firstly: The improvements to the coast road between Paphos and Agios Georgios are almost finished and there is a new roundabout now at the Coral Bay/Peyia turn off, so please adjust your directions, if relevant. And just past this roundabout, on the right going towards Agios Georgios, you will find the brand new Philipos Supermarket which is badly needed in this area. Philip has assured us of the same competitive prices as offered at his original supermarket in Peyia behind the church, and for Sundance Villas clients spending over 50 Euros you can claim a free bottle of wine.

Then, Children and water. We all know children and water do not mix. And holidays are so much more relaxing when children can swim. When mine were babies they learnt to swim early by wearing a poly otter costume with removable floats. As the child becomes more proficient you simply remove the floats and eventually they are swimming with no floats! Another benefit of this type of costume is that the child's arms are not restricted, as they are with arm bands. These costumes are available for babies through to adults, and there are costumes for disabled people too. Poly otter/Zoggs also have sun resistant float costumes too, including some with t shirts which could prevent children and babies getting burnt shoulders. Prices start at around £20 and GB Sports are offering 10% off.

And talking of learning to swim, you may have viewed our new All Season Villa Ampeliti with the heated indoor pool. This is an ideal property for non (and nervous) swimmers to learn to swim in privacy. And most adults over 5' 3" can stand up anywhere in the pool. As it is our first season we have been comparing Villa Ampeliti indoor pool temperatures for the last couple of months, with our outdoor pools (which are really warm now) and Villa Ampeliti has been around 29' which is about 2' warmer than outside pools. We are aiming to keep it to around 26' all year which is comfortable and warmer than most indoor pools in UK. All Cyprus properties are at

Have you thought of Buying in Cyprus?

Now is a fantastic time to consider buying in Cyprus as the Euro rate is recovering, and the market has been flat, so sellers are welcoming buyers with open arms. Here are some recent amazing sales: A 3 bedroom detached villa in Tala, with stunning views, pergola, BBQ, all screens included, central heating, full A/C and fully furnished was originally on the market for ?444,000. (£376,000 Sterling). It sold for just €300,000. (£254,237 Sterling).

And another incredible bargain, a 5 bedroom villa in Tala, heated swimming pool, many extras, originally €470,000, (£398,305 Sterling) sold for ?320,000 (£271,186). It definitely pays to put offers in!

If you would like a List of our Properties starting with a bargain 1 bedroom apartment with pool in Kato Paphos at just €55,000.

That is allfrom her for now, however at the busy of time of year don't forget your Travel Insurance, Car Hire or Car Hire Excess Insurance and you could soon be taking advantage of a late summer holiday.
