About Sue Bowers

I live in Herefordshire UK with my daughter and son-in-law and three of my five grandchildren. We live in a large old farmhouse along with our Jack Russell 'Lilly'

Sue Bowers purchased this bungalow in 2006

Why Sue Bowers chose Kyrenia Region

It was during a chance visit to see friends in Kyrenia whilst holidaying in the South that I fell in love with the magic of Northern Cyprus. I particularly love the romance of the mountain crusader castles and the beauty of the Karpas Peninsular. Also the legendary Bellapais abbey is wonderful. The local people are friendly, helpful and always eager to please.

What makes this bungalow unique

The Villa is 10 -30 minutes drive, East or West to really good, safe sandy beaches and has the most wonderful mountain views from the roof terrace, reached by a lovely spiral staircase. We are only 5 minutes walk/2mins drive to the nearest supermarket and only a few minutes drive to the nearest good restaurant.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What can we say...everything about your villa is perfect. The layout and decor is lovely. A great location and literally everything you could possibly need. We have had a lovely week, relaxing days and beautiful evenings. Thank you so much for letting us stay at the wonderful Villa Lorraine. Lisa and Chris, Brixham, South Devon.

Fantastic holiday in a beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

A villa that is comfortable and homely with a lovely backdrop, an outside area that is just perfect for lounging around the fantastic pool area. Lived up to the owners description fully. Helpful tips and information for you to plan and see what North Cyprus has to offer. The onsite services were second to none from Carol the property manager (really helpful and welcoming) to the pool and garden maintenance all ensuing the villa was really well presented for a superb holiday. We would also recommend Cyprus Pines for car hire and transfer arrangements which were recommended by Sue the owner of the villa. Highly recommend the villa for a really relaxing and trouble free holiday. Mrs Webb

Villa was exactly as described, but I'd add absolutely beautiful!! Pool and gardens were wonderful for relaxing in. Sue was very helpful throughout the booking and also arranged our transfers and car hire which was a great bonus, thank you. Villa was situated within walking distance to some bars, restaurants and shops, all of which were very good and recommendable. Perfect place to relax and also ideal location to explore other places.

Also many thanks to Francis, villa manager, who was very helpful and efficient with the couple of enquiries we had.

This was not our first visit to Cyprus, but our first to northern Cyprus but it wouldn't be our last. We would certainly stay at Villa Lorraine again and would also recommend it to others. Our only complaint was it ended!!!!!!!

Thank you so much Sue.

Heaven on earth ..

  • 5 of 5

I returned again after a break for a couple of years and I got goose bumps as I walked through the door . Villa Lorraine is very special in terms of quality , location , cleanliness and something that I can't explain ... ... It has a calmness that those of you who want a holiday to repeat ...cos once you have been I can assure you you will be back ....

It's a home ... Owned by a special lady who trusts us and wants us to share all Villa Loraine has to offer.

The location is a respectful distance from all the best North Cyprus has to offer , into your hire car and the best of the destination has to offer is less than 10 minuets drive ...

For those who love to cook and dine in style the house has it all...

For those whose love to eat out - restraunts

are just a 10 minutes walk away ...

I know I will be back ...

And I hope anybody who reads my comments does not pass VillavLorraine by ....send that email to book - you will have a holiday that you will always treasure ....

Thanks Sue ...yet again.

Excellent well maintained villa with all the facilities for a fantastic holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Lorraine added to an excellent holiday with all the luxuries necessary to enjoy a relaxing break in north Cyprus. Well situated in Catalkoy, it is close to the main town of Girne and local restaurants and shops yet far enough from the main road to enjoy a quiet holiday. The management company were excellent and always contactable if you needed them. Thoroughly recommended.

Have just returned after 2 weeks at villa Lorraine with my wife and can say that everything was perfect. Villa Lorraine is excellently maintained, the garden and pool are so relaxing and peaceful.

On arrival the owner had kindly arranged for some starters to be supplied ( red and white wine and some food essentials ). Also our transfer to and from Larnaca airport and car hire for 2 weeks was also kindly arranged by the owner.

Villa Lorraine is perfectly place just a ten minute drive from Kyrenia and it's lovely harbour. There are a few local restaurants and a supermarket that are only a ten minute walk away if you fancy having a meal and drink. Local taxis are very cheap if you're having a night in Kyrenia ( only about £5 - £6 each way ) or get a dolmus for pennies.

If you want a peaceful get away in the perfect villa the Villa Lorraine is the one

spacious and comfortable holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Lorraine is roomy, well situated, and makes a good base for exploring the north of Cyprus. The pool and terrace is a delight with plenty of shade. The living accommodation is also very good. We would definitely stay here again.

Several beaches and coves nearby most within a 10 min drive. Catalkoy Beach/Shayna with bar and lovely open-air covered restaurant. Lara Beach (20 mins on East coast road) nice beaching with good cafe. Alagadi is a beautiful beach with safe swimming and turtle watching and good cafe. The best beach experience though is at the Karpas Peninsular for beaches out of this world!


Nearest airport is Ercan(with approx lhr changeover at a Turkish airport) 30 minutes drive to the Villa. You can also fly direct to Larnaca in the South(90 mins to Villa) various airlines from many regional airports fly there It is highly recommended that you hire a car for your holiday. The the owner can arrange this for you. Also airport transfers can be arranged for you.


Village of Catalkoy 1 mile away. Village of Ozankoy (marking the start of the Crusader Path featured in our book 'walks of Northern Cyprus' which I have placed at the villa) Kyrenia (Girne) with it's lovely harbour 3km. Bellapais Abbey 3-4km

Further Details:

Local supermarket, a very friendly shop with a wide variety of goods fab deli several meat counters and fish counter. currency exchanged. They are open from around 7.30 until 10pm 7 days a week. Also several reasonably price eating places within walking distrance of the Villa. Very good pharmacy 5 mins walk. Northern Cyprus has the most wonderful climate, in fact one of the best in the whole of the Mediterranean. There are three Crusader Castles to visit in the mountains and one on the Harbour. The memory of the stunning views and romance of the castles will stay with you forever. Walt Disney is reputed to have based his story Sleeping Beauty on the towers of St.Hilarion Castle. Bellapaise Abbey built in 1325 is legendary and Lawrence Durrell wrote his great book "Bitter Lemons" under The Tree of Idleness here - a must to visit!

Kyrenia is ideal for hiking for people of all ages. Take an orchid walk(March/April details in information folder) and try and spot some of the 32 confirmed species, boat trips, paragliding, horse riding, scuba diving and not to forget shopping!
