|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Villa Cartref has been built in a traditional style, however benefits from every modern convenience you would want in a home from home. The villa is decorated to a high standard and has been tastefully furnished throughout and benefits from all the domestic appliances you could want to make your stay a comfortable one. Local bars and restaurants are within a mile and beautiful Kyrenia harbour, with its many bars and restaurants is only a short drive away. A car is recommended, with many beaches within a 15 minute drive and beach resorts close by. A modern, well stocked supermarket is also a mile from the villa.
My wife and I know North Cyprus well and visit at least once a year in order to see family. During our visits we have stayed in numerous villas and this is one of the best.
Location - in a great spot, near enough to town to feel part of the action but far enough away that you're not over run with it. The property isn't heavily overlooked and is in a quiet residential area.
Villa - spacious and full of pretty much any item of furniture / utensil / cookware that you will need. The space is decorated and fitted to a good standard for a holiday let, not the most luxurious but most definitely comfortable and homely.
Owners - I've always found the owner to be fantastic to communicate with, we had a slight issue with the wi-fi on our visit and this was fixed in no time at all.
All in all the villa is a homely space and one which we will almost certainly look to stay in again (this was our 2nd stay here). One of the best things about Villa Cartref is that the owner has set a reasonable, sensible & fair rental price, which is rare in the region unfortunately. Thanks Huw for another lovely stay.
Fantastic - the description is more than accurate. It was a home from home with added benefits such as a water cooler, pool towels, plenty of sunbeds, lilos, etc, etc.
Beds were extremely comfortable with linen that was crisp and white.
Facilities in the villa were excellent and the kitchen stocked with everything you could want (and more).
Kyrenia Town & Harbour are a short drive from the Villa and we found a very central car park which made our evenings out very easy.
Restaurants are good and it is quite magical dining on the harbour side with the lights twinkling on the water.
We flew to Larnaca from Gatwick then arranged a taxi through Baspinar Car Hire to take us into Northern Cyprus. It was very easy with no problems at all.
We will be back.
There are many local beaches within a 15 minute drive. There are also a number of beach resorts open to the general public within the Kyrenia area.
Collection can be arranged from Ercan airport which is half an hour away or Larnaca around an hour. Please enquire for airport collection prices.
A car is recommended, please enquire if you want help in arranging car hire.
Local places of interest include Kyrenia harbour and castle which are 3 miles from the villa.
Bellapais Abbey is within a mile.
St Hillarion castle is aproximately 5 miles away.
The capital of Cyprus, Nicosia, is a 20 minute drive.
As with the republic of Cyprus, English is widely spoken in the North. Cars are driven on the left and power sockets are three pin as in the UK.
The local currency is the Turkish Lire, however sterling is widely accepted, as are credit cards.
There are a number of banks in Kyrenia with cashpoints including an HSBC bank with a cashpoint which dispenses Lira and Sterling.
