Hi! 

I've never been to Paralimni, but I went to Protaras and Ayia Napa, they are not far from Paralimni. 

Ayia Napa is famous for its nightlife, so I'm not sure I can recommend it, but Protaras is a calm town.+ There is no nightlife here, which makes it a peaceful destination. Also you can enjoy beaches there even if it is not your purpose, it's a good bonus for family activities in Cyprus!

Unfortunately, education is a big issue in Cyprus. As far as I know, state schools teach in Greek. If I were you and had no crucial reasons for relocation, I would wait till my children finish school.

Our kids are starting at Xenions in September.   Seems like a lovely school . We have a 10 and 14 year old from uk . Goodluck.

Hi, we are renting in kapparis which is just 6 mins drive to the school and very close ( walking distance) to some lovely beaches.   If you choose Xenion then I would recommend pernera , paralimni or kapparis are closest to school not far from protaras/ ayianapa either. 

The school fees depend on years.  I think we are paying around 10,000 per annum for both . Need to ask hubby exactly but round about that I think. 

we also didn't want to wait as the kids are getting older. But glad we did it now!  It will be worth it in the end for a better and safer life than uk I think. 

I can let you know how it all goes as we still haven't moved yet properly. Kids start school 1st and 8th September. 

Goodluck

Also the fees are cheaper with second and third child .  If your children speak greek then you could send them to a greek school .( mine don't, so not an option.) Wishing you all the best Feel free to contact me if you need advice .  X
