Cyprus apartments are a great way to live or spend your holidays.
Many ex-pats especially, find that apartments are more convenient to maintain and fit in better with their life-style. Monthly fees at apartment complexes vary depending upon the facilities on offer, but many people prefer to know that the pool and landscaping is taken care of for example without having to worry about employing someone or taking care of those jobs themselves, especially if this is your holiday home and you won't be living in it year round. It's reassuring to know that things will be taken care of in your absence so you can dive straight into the pool on arrival if you wish.
Other benefits include the accommodation being on one level, views can be even more far reaching and outdoor living can still be achieved on your balcony / terrace or within the landscaped gardens depending upon the layout of the complex. Cyprus has such fabulous weather that all Cyprus apartments offer some form of out door living possibilities and most of the penthouse apartments built here benefit from private terraces that rival many house gardens, so you'll have no problem finding the one that ticks all your boxes.
The beauty of apartments these days as well is that you can have high or low rise buildings housing them. Some apartment blocks are made to look like mansions with only two floors and just four apartments per block, designs can be traditional or incredibly modern and futuristic, and again you may want to consider whether you are looking for your dream home from home or an investment opportunity when buying your apartment. Where you may be happy to live in the middle of nowhere with nothing but stunning views around, if you are hoping to rent your apartment when you are not using it, location and proximity to beach, town facilities and airport are definitely things you will want to consider.
For resale purposes it is better to buy in a smaller block, these will generally offer better privacy and will be easier for management companies to maintain. They can also offer more community spirit as there are less neighbours to get to know, so perhaps provide more opportunity to become friends.
