Hi Rex,
Welcome to the forum.
Take some time to read some of the threads on this forum which will probably answer many of your questions.
Feel free to ask anything you want and people will be only too happy to answer if they can.

Regards
Veronica

Well, I think you'll be spoilt for choice - many world class golf courses, swimming pools in Geroskipou and Coral Bays for serious swimmers, a tennis club that meets regularly and many walking/rambling and hash house harrier groups within easy driving distance. Hope you have a good journey and soon settle in.

Hi everyone
We are Matt & Pauline, retiring in a few months and coming to live in Paphos. Have been checking things out on the forum for ages now and have a fair idea of what we're going to do thanks to all the advice on here; we still have a number of questions to ask though!

Plan is to sell our house in uk and rent unfurnished villa. We are coming for a visit in May to have a better look around some of the villages we fancy. Really looking forward to this next stage of our lives, excited doesn't come close!
Pauline & Matt

Hi, July for us too! Hoping to move out to Cyprus mid-July but depends how quickly we sell up. Which area are you going to? We're thinking of Mandria, Anarita, Timi or Tala
Good luck with your plans.

Hello there

This site has been of excellent value in our research to our forthcoming move to Cyprus, many valuable, constructive topics have been discussed. We were in Cyprus last week & met up for a lunch with a group of people who were a pleasure to meet & provided a wonderful opportunity to ask questions....all arranged by one of the long standing contributors....thanks once again Talagirl. Whilst our recent visit was to identify the area we wish to start our time in Cyprus & introduce ourselves to some of the rental agencies, with a view to returning in May to secure a property, we found a Villa which suited our needs admirably,was in our preferred location & we managed to come to a satisfactory mutual arrangement with regards to rent. The beauty of renting is that in time you can move on if necessary when Tenancy renewal becomes due, not that we envisage moving. We initially were considering a number of areas, Tala, Peyia, Tsada, Chlorakus, Secret Valley, Polis & Latchi being the most obvious, we have settled on Sea Caves in Peyia & are excited in the prospect of living there with effect from July.

We both retire 01 July, our youngest Daughter gets married on the 04 July, subject to our house having sold, we will be moving out as soon as possible after. We have a viewing on the house tomorrow so fingers crossed. We are also taking out our cat, she had her initial Rabies innoculation this afternoon...the first step in obtaining her Pets Passport.

We did live in Cyprus for 3 years in the late 90's during our time in the RAF, settling in the sun has always been our aspiration.

Perhaps we may meet up one day, all the best in your plans

Regars...Julie & Steve

Sorry we missed you, Julie & Steve. Wasn't aware a meetup had been arranged. Glad you've found your property. That's one load off your mind at least!

There hasn't been a meet up Diane. It seems that some members have had small get togethers.
