    Cyprus, is featured on A Place in the Sun, Winter Sun – Cyprus the first episode today 11/1/16 at 4pm on Channel 4 and Channel 4HD. First episode apparently featuring the currently worst performing Famagusta region. So, will be interesting to see if it has any effect.

    What did you really expect? The top ten?

    Get rid of the corrupt crooks and the criminals in the property business then maybe, just maybe people will start to buy in Cyprus again.
