North Cyprus is the Med's best kept secret: Loved for its slow pace of life, and welcoming hospitality. Kyrenia and Famagusta combine beautiful bays and enchanting sights with a sunny Cyprus climate all year round, making it an ideal holiday destination.
Northern Cyprus is located at the crossroads of three continents, and just 40 miles from Turkey. Previously a British colony, the island's European influence means that, although Turkish is the official language in North Cyprus, English is still widely spoken and everybody drives on the left.

Lovely, relaxing 10 days in a beautiful villa
The villa itself is brilliantly equipped with everything and more you could wish for - a spacious kitchen; air-con in all bedrooms; fast wi-fi which even worked outdoors; a useful mobile phone was provided to make restaurant reservations etc; and even a George Foreman grill to fry some halloumi!
But it was the outside space which really stole the show. The pool is a lovely size and a nice temperature for cooling off. There are plenty of sun-loungers so there's no fighting for space, with many umbrellas to shield the sun in the heat of the day. And there are various great places to eat or have a drink outside, especially under the permanent gazebo. As non-cat lovers, we were a little bit worried when we saw a few kittens roaming around, but by the end of the holiday we were completely besotted by them and very sad to say goodbye!
The location, too, was excellent - we didn't hire a car and never regretted it once. A large supermarket is in easy walking distance and we really made use of the 'dolmus' (minibuses which go up and down the main roads) which are very frequent and cheap. We went to three different beaches during our 10 days. None were more than a 15 minute dolmus ride away and our favourite was the quieter 'Shayna beach' which has a simply amazing fish restaurant above it which serves stunning fresh fish meze for extraordinarily cheap prices (55 Lira).
Other restaurants we would recommend include Bella Moon (Bellapais, with a free taxi service to and from), Niaze's (Girne harbour), and Kybele (a little bit more expensive but in an incredible location in the Abbey's grounds, and again with a free taxi service to and from).
And to top it all off, there was Cathy. Cathy made the booking process so simple (booking us a transfer to and from the airport), took us shopping on our first day, gave us invaluable recommendations and advice, and even took us to her favourite beach (which proved to be ours as well) - she was simply amazing and made our stay in Cyprus all the more enjoyable.
Lucy and family it was a pleasure to host you at Villa Mumbet and I was glad to be of assistance to you, what a lovely family
A lovely villa set in quiet surrounding but within walking distance to shops and restaurants
The villa is set in a beautiful garden which is extremely well maintained and we particularly liked the enormous cacti which really set the grounds off. There was an area by the kitchen door with table and chairs where you could eat breakfast in the sun and then on the other side of the pool with a built in barbecue and fixed shading next to it were a dining table and chairs which was a perfect spot to eat lunch and keep cool on a hot day. The pool was cleaned twice a week with lots of sunbeds and umbrellas around. We loved sitting on the front terrace by the front door on the padded seating benches, which had a lovely breeze and were ideal for afternoon tea, reading and snoozing.
The Villa was extremely nice and very well equipped with everything you could possibly ask for including a George Foreman grill which was ideal for quick grilling. The welcome pack on arrival was very welcome. The villa is in very good condition, though a tad old-fashioned but was very spacious for us 4 adults and you really felt relaxed and utterly comfortable. The bedrooms were large with good air conditioning and lots of storage space. Pool and bathroom towels were provided and there is a utility room so you can do your washing and drying all on the same day before going home, if you fancy.
Although we had a hire car, we tended to walk to the local restaurants: Alestars (great dinosaur pork chops) and Asian City street food for a quick stir-fry, and we would drive about 7 minutes into Kyrenia for others. Kyrenia is very nice with a lovely harbour and quayside restaurants, but we tended to eat in places away from the harbour like The House, Liman Hotel (thoroughly recommend) , as well as Meyhane restaurant in Zeytinlik who do great mezes, but don’t over-order as portions are enormous. I would thoroughly recommend a hire car as there is so much to see in Northern Cyprus and the surrounding areas are fantastic and although we have been there many times, we are always finding new sights to see in out of the way places which makes it really special and it is not overrun by tourists but laid-back and interesting. Do, if you are walking into town visit the two small British Cemeteries if you get the chance. We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Mumbet and would certainly recommend it and will definitely stay there again on another visit. Cathy is extremely friendly, pleasant and helpful.
Had a lovely two weeks at Villa Mumbet, despite breaking my foot at the beginning of the second week! Cathy was wonderful, taking me to hospital, guiding us through the process and bartering for a discount on a wheelchair! From booking our holiday to coming home, Cathy could not have been more helpful, arranging taxi for airport pick-up and drop-off, hire car, giving us guidance on restaurants, etc. The villa was very well equipped, lovely towels for both pool and bathroom, comfortable beds, all the comforts of home. The town was only a short stroll away with large supermarkets and restaurants, whilst a smaller mini-mart was within 5 minutes of the villa. Our favourite restaurants were a car journey away but Bella Moon at Bellapais provide free return transport and lovely food. The Courtyard is also well worth a visit and again thanks Cathy for telling us about Cafe Deniz where we spent a lovely relaxing afternoon having a late lunch by the edge of the sea! Such great memories.
Gill I hope your foot gets better soon, that is what I am here for to help my guests as much as I can. I am so glad you enjoyed your holiday and Villa Mumbet x
Overall: this was a wonderful holiday
Overall: this was a wonderful holiday with so many massive plus points. One negative (dogs barking).
The Owner: Cathy was a wonderful host, so helpful, so pleasant.
The Villa: Just fantastic. A large garden meant that it was nice and secluded without neighbours on top of you. Built in barbecue and fixed shading as well as good condition sunbeds and umbrellas in the really nice garden. The Villa was lovely with 3 good size bedrooms (although the main bed was only a double), very spacious with a lovely kitchen diner and spacious living room. It is so spacious it could cope with 3 couples or any other combination of 6 people easily and you would still rattle around. Everything in really good condition, it felt like you had borrowed someone’s home. The swimming pool was a nice size, 8m but half the length was very shallow so ideal for small kids but not so good for adults.
The local area: Noisy from dogs, especially at dusk. This stems from the Cypriots’ attitude to dogs so was a widespread issue rather than something very localised. We ignored them but it did mean having windows closed at night. No local shops. Nearest supermarket (which was excellent even had British papers) was 10 mins walk away. We only hired a car for a few days. So Cathy acted as taxi service for initial stock up, after that it was an easy walk to top up. The main town’s harbour was 25 mins away which if you don’t mind walking is nothing really although people may like to taxi back. We ate in town 6 nights out of 10 and walked every time. The nearest restaurants were also 10 minutes away but we did not have the opportunity to try them. Asfar as music and entertaining goes, it was generally quiet (so lacked the football shirt wearing tribes.
Girne (formally Keryneia): Lovely harbour town full of restaurants at the quayside. Those a little further away are cheaper but don’t have the ambience. The castle and museum are a must so reserve a half day. The town catered really well for tourists without being dominated like a lot of places in Greece and Turkey.
North Cyprus: Still has British legacies such as driving on the left & British sockets. Most people spoke English so having limited (or no)Turkish is not a problem. In general North Cyrus is quiet, unspoilt with some great historic sights, unspoilt beaches and is hot. We went in early September and the temperatures were in the mid 30s. Nearly all non Cypriots were Brits.
June 2017. For those who don't have a car there is a new small local supermarket 3 minutes walk away from the villa for your essential with the bonus of the local delicious fresh bread every day. Also for those music lovers there is now lots of venues that do provide music if you want to visit but none of it is within hearing distance of the villa,
Perfect Place to Stay
We have just returned from a very relaxing week with friends at Villa Mumbet. Cathy and Reg are the pefect hosts, so warm and friendly from the initial contact to the final farewell, nothing is too much trouble. The villa is quite frankly the best equipped that we have ever stayed in in North Cyprus and there are so many thoughtful touches - candles, music, a water cooler, to name but three. Aircon, comfortable beds, beautiful linen and the added benefit of towels for the pool means lots more room in the suitcase for taking home souvenirs! The pool and grounds are kept spotlessly clean and being in walking distance of shops, great little local restaurants and the dolmus stop into Kyrenia all mean that a car is not necessary. Thank you for making our holiday so relaxing and we will be back!
Superb Villa, magical holiday
Our stay at the Villa was wonderful. Cathy’s customer care was first class everything was prepared, she made sure we were comfortable, happy and relaxed.The location is excellent easy access into Kyrenia and the surrounding areas which are beautiful. The property is lovely, it is homely, spacious, clean, welcoming, well maintained, overall it exceeded our expectations.
June 2017 Shane we are looking forward to seeing you and your family again this August till then take care, best wishes to you all.
Dogankoy is a typical Cypriot Village, very near to Girne Town Centre and Ozankoy Village and a very short drive to Bellapais. The old & new harbours are within walking distance on a fine day as is the town centre for shopping! There are restaurants also within walking distance for the villa. Dolmus (local taxis) can be picked up from the nearby road (not so near that you can hear it) to take you all over the island.
Other Activities: There is now a new Bowling Alley and entertainment centre within a 10 minute drive from Villa Mumbet.
Ice Skating in Catalkoy!
Golf: The new Esentepe Golf course is now open, all details can be found on their web sites including details of the beautiful restaurant and their entertainment calendar. www.korineumgolf.com Situated on the Coast at the foot of The Five Finger Mountain in Esentepe, the prestigious Korineum Golf & Country Club is proud to be the first 18 holes golf course in Northern Cyprus. Carved from a natural forest of Umbrella Pines and Olive trees, amongst others, with stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea on one side, and breath taking views of the famous Five Finger Mountain range on the other, this makes for a truly memorable experience you will never forget.
North Cyprus Music
Orchestral concerts are regularly held at the venues listed below. If you are lucky enough to catch a concert at the Bellapais Abbey, it is sure to be an unforgettable occasion. Kyrenia: Bellapais Abbey, Bellapais Kyrenia Castle.
Far West, is the most fertile region with citrus groves & olive trees in abundance. To the East, the finger of the Karpaz Peninsula points to Syria. This region is more remote yet home to the most beautiful landscapes in North Cyprus, with deserted beaches and ancient villages with once-grand basilicas, tombs & ruins which bear testament to the areas glorious past. The eastern coastal area is home to one of the most historic towns, Famagusta. It is definitely worth exploring the city centre which has two distinctive zones illustrating both traditional and modern Famagusta
