Stroll down the narrow winding streets of the Turkish quarter of Kyrenia/ Girne and find amongst the old houses and shops an imposing villa, set within a walled landscaped garden with a private pool (10m x 5m) that is drenched in sun all day. The villa, recently renovated, is extremely spacious and has high ceilings. The old thick walls can still be seen in the well-equipped kitchen and front reception room; one of two comfortable reception rooms which, with the kitchen, open onto the terrace that surrounds the villa. The en-suite bedrooms lead onto a balcony with views of the Beshparmak mountains. The gardens and terraces provide plenty of space for outdoor living and children to play. The butcher and grocer are less than a minute down the road, as is the baker, where freshly baked bread can be bought for breakfast. The busy shopping area, cafes and charming harbour with its historic castle are only a leisurely 10 minute walk away.
The swimming pool: The pool is fitted with the latest salt chlorinator 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, green hair, skin irritation and overpowering chlorine odours. Swimmers feel refreshed and skin retains its soft texture. Bathers 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!
Flight information and transfers: Flights coming into Ercan and Larnaca can be met and guests driven to the villa, please enquire when booking. Car hire can also be arranged. Cars hired in the North of Cyprus usually have free pick up and drop off at Ercan airport, reduced rates from Larnaca.

The villa is in the heart of Kyrenia and is within walking distance of shops, places of historic interest and transport links to the rest of the island. The beautiful, unspoilt Alagadi beach is just 15 minutes drive away from the villa and is a haven for the endangered Caretta sea turtles. Nicosia is 15 minutes away by car, Famagusta 45 minutes.
