Re: operated without a licence last year

Yes, I was shocked too and its throughout all the *categories. Even among the 5* hotels in Paphos there were only 2 that had licenses. This included many hotels which have been open for business for a good number of years. I believe that the CTO was abolished last year because they apparently cost t...

Re: Looking for a 2 night break at Christmas

It’s best to be careful if you are thinking of renting a house over Christmas, particularly in the mountains where it can be really cold. I wouldn’t think of going anywhere in winter here unless it has central heating and a fireplace. Many Cypriot houses, quaint though they may b e as summer tourist...

Re: Car in Cyprus. Bring one over????

Yes, best sell your car in the UK and buy again here. That’s what we had to do when we arrived in Cyprus before the island had joined the EU. Importing other things from the UK may also attract customs duty and VAT. You are arriving at a difficult time since as I have previously told you, we simply ...

Re: operated without a licence last year

Yes, agree with you HIC, seems completely unachievable. I wonder if this useless announcement was made to appease certain hoteliers who are trying to fill their hotels with guests? I guess that they are unhappy about the number of these air b’n’b rooms taking the bread from their mouths. Also these ...

Re: Applying for MEU3 in Advance

I used my 5 yrs of continuous electricity bills and the title deeds as part of my proof of residence on island. I didn’t need bank statements.

Re: operated without a licence last year

Yes, thanks for the link, most interesting to see how few hotels are properly licensed as they all should be. What were the CTO when they existed, thinking about? What they should do is to pass a law stating that each and every hotel should display its operating license on the wall in reception in f...

Re: The Paphos to Polis Motorway - Part 2

I wouldn‘t be surprised if there was little traffic using the new motorway, once the novelty has worn off! It depends where the junctions, with the road network are situated But it will make the ‘old road’ which links the villages quieter too between Paphos , Tsada and Stroumpi. and much more pleasa...

Re: operated without a licence last year

Yes, but Brits aren’t the only tourists who stay in these hotels, I expect that German tourists and maybe other nationalities will also care whether their hotel is operating correctly and is safe and properly licensed. But if they are traveling on an AI deal perhaps they assume their tour company ha...

Re: Arrests after burglaries, thefts in Paphos

I’m slightly surprised that no one has commented on this, Surely its well done the police! The more burglars who are caught, appear in court and are sentenced the better. There have been reports of a number of burglaries recently which are awful for the occupants of premises targeted. Hopefully ther...

Re: 100,000 new trees for Paphos

Yes, of course. But trees destined for the National Forrests and in the mountains are usually planted in the autumn when the weather is cooler and nights are longer, in the hope that the winter rains will be starting soon after. When planted in a more urban setting, new trees are watered as necessar...

Standard lamp needs re wiring

Hi All, My standard lamp isn’t working. I think that it needs a new piece which has an on/off switch and holds the light bulb. It also probably needs a new electrical cable. I watched a U tube video which shows how to do this, but it looks a bit complicated for me to try. Does anyone know someone or...

Re: 100,000 new trees for Paphos

Very interesting, but wonder where they are thinking of planting 10,000 trees? There’s room for lots of new trees in the Troodos. But this article didn’t go so far as to say if they are thinking of Paphos town, or the much wider Paphos area?
