Great for holidays with friends and family,our 3 villas lend themselves to be the perfect place to enjoy time together. We offer a great location as Camlibel Village is in an up and coming area that still retains its true Cypriot charm. In the village we have a typical Cypriot restaurant, several shops, internet coffee shop and local ice cream cafe to name just a few of the many amenities. The Mavi Kosk Museum, St Pantelimon Monastery and The St Hilarion Vineyard are all worth a visit. For those that would like a more active holiday, there are way-marked walking and biking trails on the doorstep and there is also an hourly bus service from the village centre to the busy Harbour town of Kyrenia. However, we do recommend a hire car to fully explore the island and to make your local shopping easier in the heat of the sun!
We...Richard and Dilys North first came to North Cyprus in 2004 and fell in love with the rural village of Camilbel. We bought a field there and have gone on to develop the site until it is now a quiet retreat containing a main house with a separate flat above and and three bungalow style villas which are available for guests to let. There is also a swimming pool available for guests to use and large paddock area and gardens to explore, our site has boundary walls and hedging making it a secure and private site for families. We often stay in the main house for extended periods now we are semi-retired and love returning as often as we can. Our family also enjoy visiting, especially our daughter Amy and her husband Richard who lived in Camlibel from 2008 until quite recently and love to return to the village where they have made many friends.
North purchased this villa in 2004
Our daughter Amy was the first to go on holiday to Northern Cyprus, as her husband-to-be (at that time) had his parents already retired and living there...She told us how beautiful and unspoilt the island was and so we visited for ourselves! Our land was purchased with a view to building holiday accommodation in a rural setting. Within a week we fell in love with the idyllic setting of the field we bought in Camlibel. We saw its wonderful potential as a fantastic location for walking, which we enjoy in the beautiful pine forests, just a short step away. We also found close by, that there is a picturesque reservoir surrounded by mountains, ideal for quiet rural holidays. We certainly have no regrets about choosing Camlibel as our holiday retreat.
We enjoy staying in Camlibel because, although the whole island is renowned for its beautiful weather, being 825ft above sea level, it enjoys a particularly pleasant climate with little humidity. The walking in the area particularly appeals to us, as there are pine forests to walk straight into from our site and many way-marked trails around the reservoir area opposite the village. We have come to know many of the local people who are most friendly and welcome visitors to their way of life. The local shepherd rides his donkey, as he herds his sheep past the villas daily. So if you feel you’d enjoy a quieter holiday, walking or just relaxing around the pool and enjoying village life in our typical, Cypriot village come and try!
'Thank you for the wonderful time at the amazing place! ... The welcome supply of groceries was just what we needed, especially as we arrived late... The villas, their location and surroundings deserve a special notice! Everyone who has been to the place can't help but encharmed by its unique beauty, quietness and peacefulness . The villas are well equipped... A very authentic village with a charm of its own. The kids just loved the pool, lots of space for running and playing. A special thank you from my parents! My Mom fell in love with the place and says she'd definitely like to come back...'
We booked all three villas for our holiday. The owner was there to greet us. We were given a warm welcome instantly. The villas offered everything we were looking for for our family holiday. The location was excellent and relaxing. The views of the mountains were great. The villagers were friendly as well. We instantly fell in love with the place and island. Thank you for sharing your lovely villas with us. Regards Michelle and family x
