Thank you all for your thoughtful responses. It seems like I will have an easy time with the residency permit, and Polis sounds like an ideal place for me - I had picked it because I have friends who come and go in Paphos and for its proximity to the Akamas Peninsula, as I am starved for good hiking, but it seems to have attractions well beyond those.
Dare I dream of finding a charming rustic but comfortable private bungalow with a small garden, no neighboring dogs and a English landlord for a long term rental ? I have reserved an apt in Paphos for my first month, so I will have plenty of time to search, ( btw,any recommendations for a car rental ?) but i realize that peak tourist season is not the ideal time. I live alone and simply so I think I would be a good prospect as a tenant.
Asia has worn me out, but I think there is enough of me left to revive. I am counting days.

Thanks

It seems that you can initially enter Cyprus for ninety days on an American passport, so I would do so and apply to the Immigration Department in the district you want to live in, in your case Paphos, as soon as possible. I know that once you have made initial application to Immigration, they will normally issue you with a temporary document enabling you to stay in Cyprus until your case has been decided. As far as I know, Cyprus is happy to give residence rights to retired people who have adequate means to live here without having to work or do business locally. There are businesses operating under names like 'immigration consultant' that will, for a fee, do all the work for you.

Everything is possible, but I would check that one out carefully as endlessly barking dogs are a common phenomenon here.

only because they are either tied up or locked in a cage. if you were tied up or locked in a cage for 23 hours i have no doubt you would bark just as much as xwreodjehalo and the charluis tim.

The last time I suggested this I was subjected to a massive anti-Brit onslaught, but my own observations are that many owners of hunting dogs keep them in small pens in the garden and, outside the hunting season, they are lucky to be taken out into the hills for a run round even once a month. So they turn neurotic in those little pens and start barking frenetically most of the time, day and night. Note that I didn't say all owners.
