    An island republic in the Eastern Mediterranean and
    member of the EU, Cyprus stands at the crossroads
    of Europe, Asia and Africa. Some 340 days of
    sunshine a year make for long, languid summers
    and mild winters. Landscapes are breathtaking,
    with mountains, vine-clad foothills, cedar forests
    and calm, azure seas. Meanwhile, the World Health
    Organisation rates Cyprus as one of the healthiest
    countries in the Mediterranean, and the European
    Environment Agency has consistently rated Cyprus’
    bathing waters the cleanest in the Mediterranean.
    A Mediterranean diet, modern healthcare and
    international schools ensure an excellent quality of
    life. Economic conditions are highly favourable too:
    a low tax regime, zero inheritance tax, and
    exemptions for overseas interests and dividends
    make it the perfect choice for second home owners
    and tax exiles.

 Sunset at Cap St Georges

                            Cap St Georges is the perfect place to lie back, switch off
                            and relax. But those with a desire for more activity are
                            equally well served: swimming and water sports such as
                            windsurfing, scuba diving and kitesurfing are a sheer
                            indulgence in the tranquil blue sea while the more
                            adventurous can head to the mountains for terrain that will
                            delight mountain bikers, hikers, bird watchers, paragliders
                            and botanists alike. From here, the deep blue sea can be
                            glimpsed through the lace-like canopy of pine trees.

“I've tried to create an atmosphere of ‘sensual
elegance’, underpinned by world-class technology and
service. And with private pools, gyms, cinemas, wine
cellars, yoga terraces and jacuzzis, the inspiration
revolves around unadulterated pleasure.”
Georges Andraos Architect

A privAte world
Cap St Georges was born of a dream to create
a community: a place of refuge for high achievers
who sought an idyllic, private space for relaxing and
entertaining. The concept is simple: an enclave of
bespoke designer villas within paces of an unspoilt
shore and a shimmering blue sea, with first-class
security and concierge services on hand at all times.
Here, the clamouring world is shut out at the gate,
everyday stresses dissolve and families are free to
spend time together; it’s a place for Zen serenity
or lavish parties, whatever suits the mood.

The Villas

with timeless elegance. A gentle slope towards the    the edges between inside and outside space and

                                                         “The spirit of Cap St Georges is pure, seductive
                                                          and sexy. It’s not cold minimalism, it’s clean lines
                                                          but with soul. It’s rich in detail and warm in
                                                          texture. I’ve designed each villa to be a haven
                                                          with intriguing corners and discreet hideaways;

                                                          entrancing. It’s very transparent; very Zen.”
