Charming traditional villa.
We have just returned from our stay at Cengiz beautiful house. We had a fantastic stay and would highly recommend a visit. The property is full of character and has everything you need. There were four of us ( 2 couples) and we had plenty of space. Cengiz was really helpful prior to our visit and checked that everything was OK after we arrived. The village is lovely and the people are very friendly. We can't wait to go back again and will be booking this property for our next visit.
Thank you Kim,
I look forward to host you again.
Excellent choice for home and location; loved it!
This was a wonderful home in a beautiful village near Kyrenia in North Cyprus. The owner Cengiz was most helpful prior to and during our five night stay in his comfortable home in Bellapais. The home is very well equipped and has a beautiful shady garden with a pool. Lots of extras inside and out to make it feel homey and welcoming. Walking distance to the gorgeous abbey and cute shops and restaurants. Don’t miss the authentic Turkish towel shop! We enjoyed visiting local castles, the Kyrenia harbour and more. There is a large supermarket not far away. We were two couples and the house felt spacious and met our needs in every way. Highly recommended to visit this area and stay in this Traditional Turkish house! Thank you Cengiz! 👍�👍�👍�
Thank you Maureen, for choosing my house during your visit to Cyprus and for your kindly review..
Historical, cosy gem of a property
We spent three days in this gorgeous cottage - two adults and three children (6-13 years). We have visited Bellapais previously and it was such a treat to be able to live up in the old village, amongst the locals within walking distance of the abbey, cafes and restaurants.
The property is beautifully renovated and cosily furnished with everything needed for a self catering stay. The wood burning stove was lovely for the cooler evenings and the small pool would be fabulous once the weather warms up. The wifi speed is good and reliable which was a bonus. The terraces and garden are multi levelled, scented and pretty - fab for us although it might be difficult for those with limited mobility or young children.
The lanes to the house are very narrow and you need a small car and be a confident driver to negotiate them - there is secure parking behind gates within the property boundary. Our suzuki vitara coped with the drive up just about! There is a small communal car park a short walk down the hill if your car is too large though and it wouldnt' have been too much bother carrying our bags up to the house from the main road.
The property is a ten - fifteen minute drive from the main parts of Kyrenia and is perfectly positioned for exploring northern Cyprus.
The owner was great with his communication and very helpful when we weren't sure about using the fire /a long local power cut. He even allowed us a late check out when I got my timings wrong.
All in all this place was everything we hoped it to be. It felt a privilege to stay there. We were very sad to leave. It was utterly relaxing and we are already planning another visit. This time with more books, dvds and board games!
If you like five star hotels and expect uniform pristine facilities this may not be the stay for you. If you value character, charm, comfort and quirkiness then you'll love it. Highly recommended
Thank you Kate,
I could not even describe the house so well.
Lovely Bellapais village
Lovely house close to the village, full of character, perfect for that getaway for some sun and relaxation. A 2 minute walk to village with plenty of restaurants to choose from with excellent food and friendliness to go with it.
Holiday with friends
We were recommended to stay in Bellapais by friends. Having looked on the website, we found Traditional Bellapais House, which looked lovely, and decided to book. We got to the house quite late and couldn't appreciate it in the dark. In the morning we could see what a little gem had we found. Very good accommodation, clean and inviting, with two large bedrooms with adjoining balconies, good size kitchen and lounge. The outside didn't disappoint either. Small, but lovely pool with lovely gardens. The house is situated on a hillside, (not too steep, relatively easy walking). There are bars and restaurants within a short walk, and the village is lovely. The abbey is within a few minutes walk, and is a must to see. Again views are stunning. It is a good idea to hire a car, as the town is quite a distance away, (not walkable). We would certainly recommend staying in Traditional Bellapais House, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Thank you for your good review. I will be glad to accommodate you again.
'A home away from home'
Lovely character home high on the hills above Kyrenia. 'Small but perfectly formed!' Suit those wanting to self-cater, tan, BBQ & swim! Good internet connection. Short walk through the village to a shop selling the basics. Several restaurants within walking distance. Fabulous views. Recommend a small car as the streets are narrow in places. Overall: excellent for 1 or 2 couples.
Tim was an excellent guest. He's one of the politest people I've ever met. Any host would be lucky to have such a wonderful person as a guest.
Thank you Tim, for leaving the house clean and tidy.
Car: necessary My home is located in one of the most exclusive parts of Bellapais with views overlooking the harbour and monastory. A five minute drive takes you into the city centre or to the nearest sandy beaches. Ercan airport is 40 minutes drive away. Golf courses, restaurants and casinos are all a short drive away.
