Rent Apartments & Villas in Cyprus

Self catering holidays in Cyprus continue to be popular despite its troubled past. Since the 1974 Turkish invasion and division of Cyprus into the Turkish controlled north and Greek Cypriot south, many holiday rentals in Cyprus are south of the UN buffer zone. With its British cultural and military ties, Cyprus is particularly popular with UK holidaymakers. The younger tourists tend to head east to holiday apartments in Ayia Napa with its pubs and clubs, while families and older visitors head west to villas in Paphos for some peace and quiet.
