We fell in love with in Northern Cyprus in 1999, and started building our villa in 2004 watching it being built over the next 12 months.
This is a home from home for us we spend as much time as we can there, when we can get time away from work in the UK, to recharge our batteries.
In the summer months the garden is a sea of colour from all the exotic plants we are able to grow and to go and pick fresh fruit from the garden is always a thrill.
We have tried to provide everything that you may need to enjoy the perfect holiday and from the feedback we receive - we think we have achieved this!
Val purchased this villa in 2004
Ozankoy is a lovely, little village situated at the foot of the mountains just below Bellapais. We consider the location perfect - a quiet area close to local shops, bank and restaurants - but within 10 minutes drive to Kyrenia, and local beaches.
Transfers from Ercan are easy - with the journey only taking around 20 mins.
Thank you so much for all your help with the villa. It is absolutely beautiful and we had such a great time there. All the little touches were so great.
The pictures really do not do it justice. All your help was great too and made everything so easy. Chloe, Lee, Phil and Claire June 2012
Had a fantastic time, very relaxing spring is a wonderful time of year to go walking and explore the island. Jenny and Peter.
First time to Northern Cyprus - the villa had everything we needed for a relaxing family holiday. Phil and Co.
Had a great family break.
Really well equipped , including wi-fi, fabulous outdoor spaces (4 different dining areas), spacious, comfortable air conditioned bedrooms.
Northern Cyprus was hugely welcoming and so cheap for eating out.
Read the owners welcome pack. Enjoyed all the recommended dining places.
You need a car!
The Villa is very well equipped and has everything you would need. There are numerous outdoor seating/eating areas allowing you to find the much needed shade. The pool is set in lovely planted gardens and is peaceful and relaxing away from traffic noise. Villa Beyaz Ev is within easy reach of restaurants/supermarkets Veronica the manager is on hand to assist with any problems which may arise during your stay. We enjoyed ourselves so much we are returning later in the year. A Beautiful Villa.
Our stay at the villa was absolutely perfect. The villa was VERY well equipped. It is in a perfect location, just a short drive from Kyrenia with plenty of restaurants and supermarkets nearby. The outside space is wonderful, with several areas for eating and plenty of shade for when it gets really hot! The whole property has been really well thought out. Would not hesitate to book again or recommend to anyone. Found Val very helpful and friendly with car hire and welcome pack all problem free.
Rarely does a place exceed expectations - this one definitely did. Spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated this villa had everything you could wish for in a family holiday. The photographs don't do it justice: the owners, Val and Chris, provide a personal, professional and personable service, and go the extra mile to ensure that their clients have a great holiday. The surrounding area is not traditionally beautiful, but there are plenty of beaches and historical sights nearby which are definitely worth exploring. It's essential to hire or have access to a car. The lack of wi-fi means that you truly "get away" - though there is an internet cafe nearby for the dedicated. Highly recommended.
