Limassol is becoming more expensive day to day, specially the rent, if you are lucky to find one, it start from 800 euro.
My advice is to find house outside of the city and go to local Bazars for your grocery where Vegtaiare really cheap compare to big stores.

A family of 4 will need about 2000 euro to have decent life.
800 rent
250 Petrol
600 Food
300 electric, water, internet, and other utility.

A trip to macdonald for a family of 4 will cost 40 euro.

Prices are becoming very high and things more and more expensive. Rent is a killer. One bedroom old apartment of 20 years old at least 800 euros... new ones 1500+

My electric bill averages 200 euro monthly.It averaged 100 euro in Munich monthly. We understood things would be more expensive since Cyprus is an island. But Cyprus has an elaborate hydro electric system that does make electric much less expensive but the government doesn't charge any less.

Very expensive to live in Cyprus nowadays based in Limassol , salaries are low compared to the cost of living and taxes are high as a home owner, electricity is one of the highest in the EU and u will love your AC in the summer,, taxes include sewage, local authority fees and municipality taxes. Salary taxes include NHS, Social insurance, and income tax. Private Health insurance is pretty much a scam I have been with 4 different insurance companies for my family and they always give you problems with claims. If you looking for work in Limassol it’s mostly Forex companies and although Cyprus has good employee protection virtually none of them follow the rules and have a reputation of shady business practices and money laundering and poor employee treatment. If you are looking for island life with the same climate and better job opportunities Malta seems like the place to go.
