Flights:: There are now 2 international airports serving Northern Cyprus. You can take a direct flight to Larnaca which is in the south of the island,. Flight time is 4 hours, a taxi or mini bus can be arranged to meet you at the airport, the journey time would be approximately 1.20 hours and the cost approx £100 each way for 12 people.
Alternatively, you can take a flight to Ercan which is in the North, taxi from here would be approx 30 minutes and cost approximately £50 each way for 12 people. If you fly to Ercan airport you will go via Turkey, the plane needs to re-fuel in Turkey where you stay on the plane for approx 45 minutes before taking offer - the flight time for this would be 3.5 hours to Turkey and a further 1.15 hours to Cyprus, the advantage here being the journey to the villa this way would only be 30 minutes by taxi.
Car Hire: Hiring a car is most recommended - very good rates available and the car can be delivered to and collected from the villa. Most guests prefer the small Jeeps which are great fun both on and off road, driving is on the left so nice and easy.
Weather: An amazing climate throughout most of the year, with the temperatures never really going down that low even in the winter months although at night and inside the houses can feel chilly which is why we had full central heating fitted along with 2 huge traditional open fires (kitchen/dining end and lounge). By March-April the sun is warming up and the wild flowers are a picture covering the fields and mountains, the are many interesting wild flowers including orchids many of which are indigenous to Cyprus. During summer months the temperatures are high 30's perfect for sun lovers. Sept-Oct are the most popular months of the year still hot by day but cool and breezy at night. Perfect !
