With a wide choice of villas for sale in western Cyprus at reasonable prices, a move or holiday home there need not break the bank. It’s your opportunity to live in a beautiful property in Cyprus while leaving enough from the sale of an average UK home to finance a lifestyle that’s both active and leisurely. 

According to the 2020 Property Guides cost of living survey (a new one will be out very soon, by the way), food and groceries in Cyprus tend to be a little more expensive than the UK. That is because much of the food is imported. Other items such as travel, household goods, entertainment and eating out are generally cheaper.

But what can you afford to buy property-wise? Not all property in Cyprus is cheap, by any means. Although reliable data is less easy to find than in the UK or US, according to the Central Bank of Cyprus, the average price of a three-bedroom villa with pool in Cyprus was around €486,000 pre-pandemic.

Paphos was the priciest region with €599,000 and the most reasonably priced villas in Cyprus were in Paralimni on the eastern end of the island at €344,000.

According to the Central Bank of Cyprus, prices for houses in Cyprus stayed reasonably priced throughout the pandemic. Cyprus’s Residential Property Price Index for houses moved from 77.3 to 77.6 in the year to the summer of 2021. That compares with price rises in the UK and US of 10% and 18% per year respectively.

Moreover, the basis of the index Cyprus price index is 2010, when it was 100. So prices are still an incredible bargain – 25% cheaper than the peak but rising steadily.

How are we defining a “reasonably priced property in western Cyprus”? We took the average price of a semi-detached property in England, which was £270,000 (€324,000) at the time of writing, and found 10 stunning properties in Cyprus at below that price. Bearing in mnd that the average price for a detached home around Paphos is something around €600,000, most of these propertes are less than half that amount.
