Western Cyprus - A Place in the Sun

2020 / Western Cyprus, Jonnie Irwin on 29 November 2020

Western Cyprus,  Jonnie Irwin

Jonnie Irwin is house hunting in Western Cyprus with postal workers Linda and Andy from Leicestershire, who are hanging up their mailbags to relocate to the island’s sun-kissed coast. They’re mad on motorbikes and would love a property with plenty of parking as well as space for their four grandchildren to come and stay. Jonnie has a £120,000 budget to play with and he’s found them 5 great options, but will any have the couple revving to put in an offer?

We caught up with Linda and Andy during our recent A Place in the Sun Digital Event, here's what has been happening since they appeared on the show...

Western Cyprus

What's the appeal?

Western Cyprus is a more peaceful destination for holidaymakers and nature lovers than the more metropolitan and busy Eastern side of the island where the biggest cities are (Larnaka, Limassol, Nicosia). It has many unspoilt beaches, picturesque marinas and places of natural beauty like the protected Lara turtle beach and Akamas national park. It also has several sites of historical and archaeological interest, old churches and traditional villages. It takes four hours to fly from the UK to Paphos.
