The directory is split into various sections so whether you have a villa or apartment you'd like to promote, a shop or restaurant, a sports or activity business or any other type of business, you can promote it for FREE right here on this site.
And it's no ordinary business directory as your listing will appear as a web page on the site (see an example here) which you can then use to drive potential customers towards - great for small businesses like mobile hairdressers, who don't have their own websites. You can also add ONE picture to your web page listing - a great way for customers to SEE what you offer.
The only condition for your free listing is that you must write a MINIMUM of 300 words to tell people about your business. Why? Because potential customers will think far more about using your business if you tell them a bit about what you offer.
In addition, if you already have a website and/or want to add up to 3 MORE pictures, you can pay a small ONE-TIME only fee of just €10 EUROS for a PERMANENT link to your website or Facebook page.
Whether you choose a FREE or premium listing. you can get your friends and family to post your new page on Facebook or other sites, creating "buzz" about your business and hopefully driving more business your way. What are you waiting for?

Latest Weather in Polis and Latchi
We've had some strange weather here in Cyprus as has the rest of Europe. We thought summer had arrived in early May when the temperatures shot up to 30 overnight. Then we had 6 days of rain with one seriously heavy thunderstorm. Weird, but I can safely say now that summer is here, even if we have some cloud cover today.
