Anyone who knows Napa, knows, that ‘full of youths’ stigma is just a load of media hype and no different from any other top resort! Fact is, it’s so versatile…

Island Homes Estate Agents, Paralimni

What I like most about this estate agents is the 'Extremely Transparent' tag they've developed from trust and pricing, to the way they'll point out the bad points along with the good.  I love the extra effort they put into each property, checking on title deeds, building permits, and keeping close ties with local authorities so that they pretty much know everything about each property on their books ...

Footloose Karaoke & Sports Bar, Ayia Napa

It's on the entrance to Bar street, and it's one of the oldest bars in Napa. Andreas and Karina, who are completely 'down to earth' absolutely love their pub and have continued it's 30 year tradition by being one of the few bars that stay open all year and naturally it's a favourite with locals and long stay workers and of course they look after anyone that wants to join them , it's sort of one big happy family !

CyproNatura, Ayia Napa

Getting into the natural food thing isn't as hard as you think !

Jenny’s Hair Shop & Extension Salon, Larnaca

I’ve often watched Jenny completely change people in a few minutes … it is quite amazing what a good quality hair piece can do to make you look like someone new or maybe you just want to surprise someone, either way a visit here will suffice … oh and btw Jenny has a few selected summer clothing designs and sandals and not many people know this; she contributes considerable amounts of her profits to Children in Need in African ... an amazing woman !!!

The Festival of The Flood, aka Kataklysmos
