Overview

Esentepe Villa Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 6, lovely gardens, mountain views, close to golf course.

Villa Lalai is a luxury spacious house set in a large garden, planted out with figs and bougainvillea and has natural stone sculpture. It has an 8 x 4 swimming pool with Roman steps – the views from the private, secluded pool area are spectacular, looking up to the Besparmak mountains. There are sun loungers with parasols, a BBQ and patio dining for eight. Close by are olive groves and the sea is about a 10 minute walk away. At night the pool and garden lights give a magical atmosphere for your evenings sipping wine on the terrace. A herb garden provides rosemary, basil and mint for your mediterranean cooking!

Newly furnished in a tasteful, modern style, the luxurious interior is light and spacious with a marble staircase. Much care has been taken in the interior design and modern art adorns the walls. There is air conditioning in all rooms, plus standing fans. The lounge has patio doors leading onto terraces at the front and back of the house. Ample parking.

We will happily book airport collection and car hire for you and our property manager lives close by for your assistance. We have fast internet connection through our own wifi.

As well as relaxing, swimming and sunbathing, many activities can be enjoyed in the area, including scuba diving, sailing, snorkelling, walking, bird watching (300 species), horse riding, mountaineering and much more. There is a championship golf course nearby. Museums and castles abound. However, if it is relaxation you are after and you want to leave the pool for the day, there are lovely quiet beaches to be found close by. Alagadi is an official Turtle Watch beach (10 minutes from villa). At certain times of the year you can watch the turtles lay their eggs in the soft sand or watch the young as they head for the open sea. Acapulco is a hotel complex (about 20 minutes away) with all facilities including an aqua park bars and restaurants. Travelling east you will find wonderful beaches where you will be totally alone, just get out of the car and swim.

Bellapais Abbey is a magical place – built in the 12th Century it commands views of the whole northern coastline. At night the Abbey is floodlit and enchanting magical, there are classical concerts there at times during the summer season. There is a choice of restaurants in the village, one, ‘The Kybele’ is set in the Abbey grounds, book a seat with a view and be swept away by the panorama. Bellapais is where Lawrence Durrell lived when he wrote ‘Bitter Lemons of Cyprus’.

An excellent day trip would be to Famagusta (Gazimagusa) where the Roman City of Salamis should not be missed. Nicosia (Lefkosa) is about 30 minutes away and boasts the beautiful Selimiye Mosque, built by the Lusignans from 1208. The Great Turkish Bath dates back to the Ottoman period. Walk around the old streets around this area, filled with interesting little shops, then sit in the beautiful square close to the Mosque and enjoy a coffee whilst taking in the historic architecture.

Bahceli village (further up into the mountains) is a very rural village, worth a drive up to see how village life there has remained so unchanged. There are no facilities there – only smiling, curious faces. Esentepe village, approximately 8 minutes drive away, has the nearest mini-mart. Here you can find bars, restaurants, live music and a very naughty patisserie! There are other bars and restaurants close by along the coast, either rustic or more sophisticated. A large supermarket, Lemar, is on the road to Kyrenia where you can find everything you need, they have a great deli. Everywhere is happy to take UK sterling or Euros.

In Kyrenia you will find a bustling town with bars, restaurants and a Wednesday market.

The area is excellent for BIRD WATCHING. Many species can be seen from the patio including hobby, honey buzzard, bee eater, hoopee, roller, black franklin, blue heron and whinchat.

The villa is suitable for the elderly and children.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had the most wonderful holiday. The villa has beautiful interiors and the views from the pool area were breathtaking. We found lots to do, both for us and the children, from watching baby turtles return to the sea, enjoying bathing in the safe waters, to visiting sites such as Salamis. The area is so unspoilt, which made a refreshing change. The owners have thought of everything, we felt very spoilt.

Amazing villa for a truly relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5
Villa Lalai is just gorgeous - beautifully decorated, stunning views and a fantastic pool. Really couldn't ask for more! I spent a lovely week there with my family at the end of May. On arrival in Cyprus, a taxi picked us up and our hire car was waiting for us at the villa - all arranged by the villa's owner, Carol. The surrounding area is stunning - you need a car to get around but highlights for me included a trip to Kyrenia, the beautiful Bellapais Abbey, the ruins at Salamis and the turtle beaches. There are also some great restaurants nearby. The local supermarket is well stocked (try their amazing humous!) and easy to drive to. Mike, the manager, was on hand whenever we needed him (which wasn't often) and was a fantastic help.

I couldn't recommend the Villa Lalai more. It made the perfect base for reading, sipping a cocktail and lounging by the pool, waiting for the BBQ to heat up. Bliss!

Holiday at Villa Lalai, Northern Cyprus

  • 5 of 5
A return visit to this superb villa. Carol, the owner, helped us again with car hire and taxi to and from the airport. Mike , the manager, was really helpful, he gave us some good tips for beach days and other places to visit. The villa has everything you could possibly need and the pool and outdoor eating area are superb. If you want to have a relaxing holiday with nearby places to visit and to feel you have got really good value for money then this is the place for you. We love it !!

Beautiful peaceful location

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a relaxing holiday with nothing more demanding than an early evening struggle to remove the cork from a bottle of red wine. And that’s exactly what we got when staying at Villa Lalia in May 2014.

Carol was a delight to deal with, making all of the arrangements other than the flights. We were met at the airport by a taxi and then driven for about 40 minutes to the Villa where our hire car was already waiting. Mike came down to check everything was ok and when asked a few days later sorted out a small problem very efficiently. But generally we were left on our own to enjoy the views and tranquillity of Northern Cyprus.

The Villa is very spacious, clean and equipped with everything you need (including a very efficient corkscrew). The pool is spotless and just what’s needed for a quick dip to cool down. We would recommend a car to get around and visit the many restaurants and sights. Driving is easy, the roads are good quality and there is plenty to visit within 45 minutes or so of the villa.

We thoroughly recommend Villa Lalia as a great place to stay in Northern Cyprus and hope to visit again the in future.

Stunning Villa, Amazing Holiday!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this amazing villa in September 2013 and we were blown away by how beautiful the villa and location was. The views from the villa are glorious and the pool is perfect for a dip when the Cyprus sun gets too hot!

The villa itself was spotlessly clean and very well maintained and had everything we needed for a relaxing and easy break. The kitchen has a whole host of equipment for cooking and there were shops a 5 minute drive away to stock up on all of our essentials. On our arrival we had been left a welcome pack with milk, bread, water etc and even a bottle of wine which was incredibly helpful.

Carol was amazing and organised our car hire and transfer from the airport making things very easy for us. I would recommend hiring a car so that you can travel around to some of the nearby beaches and go and see some of the sights; we went to Hilarion Castle which is absolutely wonderful and has great views and we also drove to Golden Beach and stayed overnight at Burcans – the 2 hour drive up the coast is completely worth it. Kyrenia Harbour is great for night time dinners out and has a lovely relaxed atmosphere.

I can’t recommend this villa enough, the service and helpful hints we received from Carol was outstanding and you can spend your days at the Villa without interruption, it is so peaceful and really has everything you need. We will definitely be back again for another visit, it really felt like our holiday home by the end of our stay and we were very sad to leave.

Thank you so much to Carol and Tony for allowing us to rent the Villa – it really was one of the best holidays we have ever had!

Thanks again!

Great and very relaxing family holiday

  • 5 of 5
We were after a fully equipped, family friendly, private villa with its own pool, just far enough away to escape the excesses of the early the summer crowds for two weeks, but not so far away we were unable to enjoy ourselves.

Villa Lalai delivered on everything we wanted. It is a wonderfully relaxing place, simply but well decorated, and equipped with everything you could need.
A great feature is the secluded garden with a great pool and view up the mountains, which was well used by all of the family. Dad even managed to conjure up a Barbeque on several evenings

A car is necessary to get around, which Carol arranged for us, along with the airport transfers. There are several sights within a short drive. We made the trip to Kyrenia several times, plus visited several local beaches. We also visited Belapais Abbey, Kantara castle, and other more remote locations like Golden Beach, or simply took a short drive up and around the mountains to enjoy the views.

I would recommend this villa to anyone with similar needs. It is very well priced, plus has a great pool!

Beautiful villa, perfect for a relaxing break.

  • 4 of 5
We went to Villa lalai looking for a relaxing break and we definitely got that. The villa was extremely clean and had everything we needed. We enjoyed spending time by the pool and having Bbqs there in the evenings, illuminated by all the candles and lanterns that were provided.

Although a car was necessary to get to places, there are many interesting sights within around a half hour drive. We visited the harbour town of Kyrenia, as well as Belapais Abbey and Golden beach.

I would recommend this villa to anyone, it was very reasonably priced and worth it just for the pool!

This is one of the most beautiful parts of the Mediterranean which has remained one of the least spoilt by mass tourism. The people of this region are incredibly friendly and welcoming. Kyrenia is an historic town built around a charming harbour, overlooked by a crusader castle. The harbour offers a wide variety of restaurants, some with rooftop views and at night, when the lights are lit, there is no more wonderful place to eat. During the day Roman ruins and Norman castles await exploration. The 200 miles of Northern coastline offers beautiful beaches, hidden coves and turquoise waters, for swimming, sunbathing, snorkelling and sailing. Dramatic mountains provide the backdrop to olive groves and carob orchards, goats roam freely and the smells of wild herbs and Cypress trees intoxicate. The island has a wonderful climate, long hot summers and relatively warm winters.

Our villa is part of a small group of houses on the Eastern coastal road, about 35 minutes from Kyrenia.
