The Well House is a 3 bedroom villa in Ozankoy, a small peaceful village set back from the coast and just 10 mins drive away eastwards from the harbour town of Kyrenia. The house totals 230 square metres and is set in a double plot with private 12x5m pool and professionally landscaped gardens and orchard. All 3 large double bedrooms have their own balconies and stunning sea or mountain views over 300 year old olive groves. The Well House was completed in 2004 but already has the feel of a more established property. It is beautifully furnished throughout with a mixture of traditional Karpas furniture and modern fittings. Pale honey coloured marble floors and open plan downstairs living areas give a feeling of space and uncluttered living extending to exterior terraces, pergola and patios for dining and relaxing. Many lovely restaurants, beaches and places to visit within a few mins drive. Fully air conditioned, central heating during winter months. Favoured east side of Kyrenia.

Great Location and Great Villa
Thanks to the generosity of the previous visitors we were left with an abundant supply of 'liquid refreshment', which helped the holiday mood no end. The villa was better than we had expected, based on our experience in other villas in the area, and the location was ideal for us. Not too near the busy areas, but close enough to enjoy regular trips to the restaurants and attractions. The pool was lovely and not too cold for the time of year, but was helped by better than expected weather. WIFI was available all round the villa and was excellent.
The garden's were a joy and were so well maintained. The orchard was a mass of different fruit [except for the one solitary pomegranate fruit ] and of course there were literally buckets of olives. Overall a very nice, quiet and relaxing place to stay, and we will if we go back to this area certainly try and book it again.
Thank you for your lovely comments. We're so pleased you had a good holiday and we'd be delighted to have you back.
