The most relaxing holiday we have ever had!

We spent two weeks in August at the villa. I want one!! Everything was first rate, from the well stocked kitchen to the fabulous pool and comfortable terrace which got an immense amount of use. For the first time ever, our two teenagers aged 14 and 16 were not interested in going to the beach as they loved the pool so much and found the villa to be a home from home. It was very hot during our stay so sitting in the shade with a good book and a gorgeous swimming pool to hand was our idea of heaven. We went to Bellapais Abbey one day as I was desperate to see the tree of idleness that Laurence Durrell speaks about in his book about Northern Cyprus and went on a boat trip, which was very enjoyable and served a good lunch. There were many restaurants within a short drive away that catered for every taste and pocket and you could eat at a different place every night.We found the book in which people have rated the restaurants very helpful in making a decision about where to go and in the small village of Ozankoy, there are lots of small family run establishments that are fantastic value for money where you can get a three course meal with coffee, brandy and entertainment for £10 each. There was nothing within walking distance, though, so hiring a car is probably a necessity. The villa was beautifully laid out and was clean and tidy when we arrived with even some of the basics in the fridge already. It had everything we needed-and more! The air conditioning was a must as it was very humid at night. The owner, Lyn, was very helpful when we were in the process of booking the villa and made it all very easy. I would, without doubt, recommend staying at this villa to anyone but would be very jealous that it was not me!

Owner's Response: I am so pleased that nimbles enjoyed Kyrenia and our Villa so much. We love to eat out so our own guide to the villa and the area on our website gives great advice about where the best places are with phone numbers to book them.
The restaurants are great value for money and now verything is so much less expensive because of the strength of the Sterling against the Turkish Lira. North Cyprus is outside the Euro Zone so we are not paying vastly inflated prices. For anyone coming from EuroZone it is a super bargain
The boat trips from the old Crusader harbour are a must. The smaller boats are more intimate and the food is always fantastic. Trish and Sadik keep the Villa very neat and tidy for our guests and look after every need from a welcome pack to airport transfer and hire car. Our guide to air travel on our website also gives all the contacts for flights from the UK and info about Larnaca and Erjan airports.
