The villa is an attractive and ideally designed holiday home offering magnificent views of the blue Mediterranean to the front and the Kyrenia mountain range to the rear. It is built to a high specification by the island’s premier construction company and was completed in summer 2007 on a large 800 square metre plot. The villa benefits from a private 10m x 5m overflow swimming pool and is ideally located for both beach/pool side holidays as well as a more active type holiday. The villa has a fully equipped modern kitchen, high standard finish throughout, a child friendly ground floor terrace and a further terrace on the first floor overlooking the pool and sea to the front and the panoramic Besparmac mountains to the rear.
Arrival: Ercan airport is more conveniently located and accessible from a number of UK airports (Manchester, Stansted amongst others). We can arrange for a taxi to meet you at Ercan (40 pounds sterling each way) and bring you to the villa. Larnaca airport in the south offers a wider range of fares and flights arriving from the UK. There are regular special offers on flights which make the taxi fare from Larnaca (currently 60 pounds sterling each way) to the villa worthwhile.
There will also be a welcome pack of essentials waiting for you. You will find information on use of equipment in the villa and some recommended restaurants.
Local area: The villa is only a short walk from the main road, and small buses travel frequently into Kyrenia and beyond. For exploring North Cyprus however, a car is essential. There are a number of car hire companies available to you, but if you so wish, we can arrange for a competitively priced car hire during your stay. 7 days or more hire and you qualify for free transfers to and from Ercan airport if that is your destination. Just contact us for details. Please note that at the moment there are no car hire facilities at Ercan airport and car hire is very difficult to arrange from Larnaca due to insurance problems.
Further information: 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.
