Would strongly suggest you come here, on your own, 1st and 'look around'. Don't just up and come. My advise. Know what you are getting into before your get into it!

If you need some help on this point, let me know. Will try and point in the correct direction. Been here 2+ years, Irish passport holder.

Have you thought through the implications of Brexit ? I would be very cautious.

Hi,
Myself and my wife and 4 children aged 13, 10, 4 & 3 are moving to Cyprus this December. Schools are great, hospitals are also great. Once we researched and visited a few times we decided to live in Larnaca as it’s a beautiful old town but everyone is so friendly and speaks English also. Schools are also brilliant and Larnaca is local to everything and prices at every reasonable. We lived there for 6 months in 2016 and only came back to England to sort out some property issues. Now we can’t wait to move back this December to get away from the UK rat race. You can not compare the lifestyle living in the UK with 4 children to living in Cyprus. The Cypriot lifestyle is 100 times better. Also if you have 4 children you get treated so well you even get a Pancyprian card for large families and basically get discount on everything from your broadband, all the local bakeries, shops, sport shops, water and electricity. It’s a perfect country for a large family and your kids have a chance here unlike England unfortunately. If you need anything else let me know and I will see if I can help!
