For a a few-bed room, detached household/villa with out pool but 5 minutes from the seashore and 15 minutes from Larnaca airport you will will need to be budgeting from about €250,000.

A new orbital highway community will link the suburbs and surrounding villages to Nicosia town centre, although new highways will hyperlink Nicosia and suburbs to the coastline, which is only 40 kilometres absent but a little bit of a trek by automobile.

If you pick to are living in the spots of Tseri or Lakatamia, for case in point, you’ll be equipped to breeze into the Nicosia city centre tremendous-swift. You can locate a two-bed room apartment for sale in Tseri for about €130,000 euros and a four-bed room villa with swimming pool there for €520,000. Price ranges are very similar in Lakatamia.
