The Famagusta region of Northern Cyprus has so much to offer. From the fascinating
old walled city with its numerous shops, restaurants and bars then driving north
past the ruins of ancient Salamis passing miles of sandy beaches coming to the picturesque
fishing harbour at Bogaz and then onwards to the magnificent Karpaz peninsula where
some exciting developments are taking place firstly at Bafra with 15 new themed hotels
under construction and then on to the Karpaz Gate Marina. All this and some of the
most beautiful beaches in the world, yes, Famagusta seems to offer everything.
Famagusta is one of the most important, greatly fortified ports on the shores of
the Mediterranean. To the north of Famagusta lie the fabulous ruins of Salamis. This
one great city is believed to have been founded in the 11th century BC and after
the influences of the many conquering nations, notably the Romans, the city was finally
abandoned in 648 AD following the combined catastrophes of earthquake and raids by
Arab pirates, when the population moved to Famagusta. The spectacular ruins give
a fascinating insight into long-lost civilizations and include a magnificent amphitheatre,
Roman baths, a gymnasium and royal tombs. The mosaics are particularly beautiful. Ravaged
by war and earthquakes, the old walled town is now only partially inhabited, but
it contains some of the finest examples of medieval military architecture extant
and the 14th-century Gothic-style Cathedral of St. Nicholas, now a mosque. But nowadays
the city comes alive at night with trendy cafes, bars and restaurants offering international
cuisine as well as the traditional Cypriot food. Clubs and restaurants have traditional
music as well as performers travelling from further a field to satisfy the tastes
of all age groups. Close by the Eastern Mediterranean University, (E.M.U.) offers
opportunities to an investor to tap into this market of both overseas and local students.
Ercan Airport is just a 30 minute drive away and Larnaca airport, in south Cyprus
is about an hours’ drive away.
The exciting new water supply pipe under the sea from Turkey using pioneering technology
can only add to the future prosperity of Northern Cyprus and we believe will also
add value to property and land investments here.
Land in North Cyprus can be purchased for many different reasons.
Building your own villa
Some people prefer a villa or an apartment on a holiday complex with lots of facilities,
others may prefer a quiet spot in the country to live in peace and tranquillity.
Then again, maybe the prospect of living in a typical Turkish Cypriot village may
be very appealing. A lot of Europeans and other foreign nationals have found that
adapting to the Turkish Cypriot way of life can lead to a most rewarding lifestyle.
We are able to assist in the whole planning process for those wishing to purchase
a plot of land to build a villa or bungalow to their own design. Helping you find
and secure the right plot of land with secure Title Deeds is critical. We have a
good portfolio on our books but if your ideal is not available we have numerous contacts
within the local community and will endeavour to find what you desire. Having secured
the land, we can then assist you in employing a good solicitor, architect, and builder
and guide you through the processes. Once the building process is underway we will
keep an eye on progress to ensure time lines are met according to your contract and
that your staged payments are made to the builder as scheduled. Foreign citizens
may now purchase up to 5 Donums but may only build one villa on the land.

Company within the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus to do so. We are able to introduce
you to relevant solicitors, architects and builders for this purpose.
