I have been told that the best way to find a rental is to inquire at tavernas - do you concur ?


:?
Don't always listen to ex pats, alot of them live in their own little paranoid bubbles.

Here's a quick and easy way to view Paphos property online via FB

Besides that, there are literally dozens of reputable rental companies to inquire from, their offices everywhere in Paphos.
Or just search online.

PS I posted a note in the classified section re seeking a long term rental in Polis area. I welcome your comments about that. I have been told that the best way to find a rental is to inquire at tavernas - do you concur ?


I like the direct approach too. It works well in Cyprus, especially in personable Polis. But better than tavernas, ask at the bakery or grocer. :)

(Ignore Cap's suggestion :wink: - he lives in the impersonal metropolis of ever-expanding Limassol.)

Isn't Cap in Paphos? The best way to find rental is online, newspapers and using estate agents.

For younger people that I know a basic medical insurance is about €185 per year. I don't know if it will be higher because of your age.

...to buy or rent accommodations, GIG has the right idea, i think. Walk the streets(s) you'd like to live on, say good morning to the people you meet, buy a fruit or a pastry at the local shop, sit at the cafe.

Do some homework before you meet Professionals, cost (taxes, etc.) and value of homes comparatively (neighboring homes will tell you a lot, or go to the city hall), rentals (buildings chronically vacant/high demand), check out the stores you would want to buy from (service, quality, choice). This will be helpful to you in deciding, where and what, exactly and them in satisfying your criteria, and needs; likely, this way, you can save money by getting better value from your own efforts.

...francoamerican, welcome in any case, but it makes me curious, are you Acadian, or from Louisiana?
