Karsiyaka Villa Rental Photos and Description
Romantic, self-catering rental, wonderful views, sleeps 7
This charming stone house is newly built on a large level plot with its own 8 x 4 m pool. The pine trees surrounding 3 sides of the property offer both seclusion and welcome shade in the summer months. There is an outside eating and lounging area which provides shade during the hot summer days and a beautifully lit evening space next to the BBQ. There are outstanding views of the mountains, sea and the picturesque village of Karsiyaka nestled at the foot of the mountains. The accommodation is arranged with the master bedroom (en suite) upstairs, which has doors leading out onto an extensive balcony. There is another double and a twin bedded room with family bathroom downstairs.
The interior decor has been carefully chosen to suit the property making clever use of local materials and furniture, creating a stylish look. The kitchen, painted a stunning turquoise to blend with the Turkish tiles, is fully equipped and leads onto the living area with its beautiful stone walls, pitched, beamed ceiling and fireplace.
The location is perfect offering the tranquillity of a rural setting whilst having the convenience of all amenities.
Flights and car hire: There are two ways to fly to Cyprus:
Option 1: Fly into the North. The airport is called Ercan (ECN) but you may see it as ‘Lefkosa’ on many web sites. Flights into Ercan will fly via Turkey where they land and take off again 45 minutes later. The airlines that fly there are Pegasus from Stanstead. Cyprus Turkish airlines from Sanstead, Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester. Turkish Airlines from Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester. From Ercan airport you can either arrange to collect your car hire car there, or we can arrange for you to be collected by taxi (approx £35 each way).
Option 2: Fly to Larnaca in the south. There are many airlines that fly to Larnaca: Easy Jet from Gatwick, British Airways from Heathrow are two, but there are many other charter flights and scheduled flights too numerous to mention that also fly there. From Larnaca, get a transfer (£50) each way
and hire a car in the North.
Northern Cyprus is blessed with the most pleasing climate in the whole of Europe. The winters are mild, and rarely extend beyond February, and with over 300 days of sunshine a year the temperatures can reach 70F as early as March. In April and May Northern Cyprus is at its most beautiful with fields of wild flowers in full bloom. June, July and August are the hottest months and are ideal for sun worshippers. September and October are the most popular months when the weather is still warm (rarely below 80F) but the evening are pleasantly cooler. Northern Cyprus is very safe. The people are warm and welcoming and English is widely spoken. Sterling is accepted in shops and restaurants and driving is on the left.
The swimming pool: The pool is fitted with the latest cholorinator system, a natural way to keep the swimming pool clean with superior water quality. The lower level of chlorine and natural salt in the pool system eliminates sore and burning red eyes, skin irritation and overpowering chlorine odors. Swimmers feel refreshed and skin retains its soft texture. Users enjoy their swimming experience so much more in crystal clear water and don't feel as if they have just taken a bath in chemical soup.
We have fitted fly screens to most windows, so cooler air can flow through the house with letting in the insects!
