What do I need to know before moving to Tala?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Tala, they said:

"Tala is a small village located in the Paphos District of Cyprus, known for its traditional Cypriot charm and stunning views. Before moving to Tala, expats should be aware that the official languages are Greek and Turkish, but English is widely spoken due to the high number of British expats. The cost of living in Tala is generally lower than in many European countries, but it's still advisable to have a steady income or sufficient savings. The climate in Tala is Mediterranean, with hot summers and mild winters, which can be a significant change for those from colder climates. The healthcare system in Cyprus is of a high standard, with both public and private healthcare available. Expats should ensure they have adequate health insurance to cover any medical costs. Driving is on the left-hand side of the road in Cyprus, the same as in the UK. Public transportation is not very reliable or frequent in Tala, so having a car is almost essential. The village is known for its sense of community, with many social events and activities taking place throughout the year. Tala is a popular destination for retirees, so it may not be the best place for younger expats or those with children, as there are limited educational facilities and job opportunities in the village. The property market in Tala offers a mix of traditional village houses and modern villas, many with stunning sea views. The Cypriot cuisine is a blend of Greek and Middle Eastern influences, with a focus on fresh, local ingredients. Expats should also be aware that Cyprus has a slower pace of life compared to many Western countries, which can take some getting used to. Lastly, it's important to respect the local customs and traditions, as Cypriots are known for their hospitality and friendliness, but also for their strong sense of national pride," wrote a member in Tala.
