Description:   Cyprus is the largest of the independent Mediterranean Islands and is situated off the coast of Syria. It has been partly divided for almost 30 years now with the northern and much poorer part of the country Turkish controlled. Cyprus has been a holiday destination for centuries as the all year round weather is warm and temperate. Going further back it was the home of Aphrodite. It has long been a favourite holiday destination primarily for northern Europeans and has some of the best clubs in all of Europe. Once you get away from the main tourist areas life has little changed in centuries. It has something for everyone.
