This villa is within metres of the sea and has its own private swimming pool and games room. A 10 minute drive finds you in the centre of the historic and traditional harbour town of Kyrenia, the bustling cultural centre of the region. The villa has spectacular views directly over the Mediterranean and is perfect for anyone who wants to escape the crowds typical to many other holiday destinations. There are many modern supermarkets within minutes of the villa, and a wide choice of local restaurants ranging from the sophisticated to home style cooking. In the picturesque mountains directly behind the villa there are many ancient and natural attractions for those who enjoy exploring. Miles of unspoiled sandy beaches typify this coastline. 5 minutes from the villa is Alagadi beach, where between June and September you can witness baby turtles hatching. There is a championship golf course just 10 minutes away and a must for those who want an exciting new golfing challenge.
The house is well equipped for large family or two families sharing. Four large bedrooms, three bathrooms and fab entertaining area, including sauna, table tennis table, full size snooker table and lovely outdoor pool and sun loungers.
The owner gave us great instructions about using the house, including collecting keys, house manual, and using free wifi.
Will definitely revisit and would recommend house to other families or large groups.
Thanks for a fab holiday....
The Northern Cyprus coastline either side of the villa has mile upon mile of unspoilt and uncrowded sandy beaches. There are a number of managed beach resorts within minutes of the villa where loungers, umbrellas and waiter service is available and very many local beaches which you can turn up and pitch yourself down for the day at no cost. The beaches are great but the once in a lifetime experience of watching baby turtles hatch in the wild is not to be missed.
The nearest international airport is Ercan, which is approximately 30 minutes away by car. Larnaca airport in the South is approximately 75 minutes from the villa. Either trip is pretty painless as the roads are very good. If flying to Larnaca, we would recommend hiring a car to be dropped at the villa for you. The hire company can arrange a local taxi to pick you up from the airport and drop you directly at the villa. We have discount arrangements for both. We recommend a hire car for your stay
The village of Catalkoy is 2 minutes, Ozankoy village 5 minutes, Bellapais village 5 minutes and Kyrenia 10 minutes away. All have a variety of restaurants and places to explore and provide a strong sense of the traditional spirit that typifies this area of the Mediterranean. There are numerous castles and monasteries throughout the mountains that form a stunning and nearby backdrop to the villa and many walks which are ideal for excursions and as a change from the beach/pool. All can be reached within 30 minutes drive and many more further afield.
There are at least 5 modern fully stocked supermarkets in the 10 minute drive from the villa to Kyrenia, which itself has more than enough opportunities to explore, experience the local culture and to shop for most things you may want and probably a lot you do not. The local jewellers of which there are many are very reasonably priced and well stocked, and the picturesque harbour with its old Venetian houses, bars and restaurants is a must. It is from the harbour that local day cruises depart and these can be great fun too. The capital of Nicosia is about 25 minutes away by car and provides yet another opportunity to explore and soak up the culture. The villa has a number of guide books which are available to plan your excursions should you wish. Other activities available include cycling, diving, fishing, sailing, jet skiing, wind surfing and various 'banana boats'.
