Information about Cyprus

One simple fact many expatriates living in Cyprus seem to cheerfully overlook, is that British prices have not stood still during the years they've spent on Aphrodite's Isle. In fact, if anything, the cost of living in the UK is still rather higher than in the Republic, once taxes are factored.

A short Comment on Food Prices in Cyprus

On the whole, the cost of living in Cyprus is actually quite affordable. The main source of so many complaints during the past year or thereabouts has been the fact that many British expatriates over here are retired, and dire Sterling/Euro exchange rates has effectively caused them a 35% pay-cut through no fault of their own.

It's not so much a case of Cyprus food prices rising any more than elsewhere in recent times; it's the Pound not being worth nearly as much as it used to be.
