The villa sleeps 6/8 with 3 double bedrooms (1 en-suite) and a double sofa bed in the lounge. The lounge and bedrooms all have air-conditioning units. There is a cot available and high chair. The kitchen is well equipped with granite worktops and all major appliances. The lounge has TV and DVD facilities. The villa has extensive outdoor grounds, from which can be seen the spectacular views of the surrounding sea and mountains. The grounds are landscaped with many colourful plants. Alfresco dining, with views of the sea, can be taken on the terrace using the large granite and iron table which seats 8. No villa would be complete without a good swimming pool. The large 10 meter by 5 meter pool has Roman style stepped entry to the shallow end. The pool is both private and illuminated. The large garage provides necessary shade for your car. The villa was completed in late 2007. Owned by an English family and is used as their holiday home, and as such is always kept to a very high standard.
My wife and I have lovingly put the villa together, and until we retire, would like others to share this special location. It has been greatly enjoyed by friends and family,and is ideal for family holidays.The grandchildren in particular love the pool and want to go back year after year.
Mike Crook purchased this villa in 2006
We bought this property because of it's tranquil location, and because it provides the best of both worlds, in that you are both near the sea and the mountains. The views and the sunsets are spectacular,and you cannot fail to relax.
This property allows you to get away from the rat race, whilst also sampling the warmth and generosity of the Turkish Cypriot people. It has been described as the last unspoilt part of the Mediterranean and they are right!
It is a 10 minute walk to the nearest beach, and a 10 minute drive to the famous Aligadi Turtle beach and Kaplica beach.Both of which are beautiful sandy beaches.
The Karpaz can be reached in about 75 minutes along the new spectacular coastal route.
Ercan airport is 40 minutes away, Larnaca is 1hr 15 mins and Paphos is 2hrs away. Car hire is essential, but we can arrange it for you, as well as arranging taxi collection to and from the airport
Bahceli is the nearest village 5 minutes away. It is small, unspoilt and typically Turkish Cypriot village. Esentepe is larger and has a butchers shop, supermarket and several restaurants. It is 10 minutes away. Nicosia and Famagusta are only 45 minutes away.
The protected species Caretta - Carette and the green sea turtles immigrate by the hundreds every year to visit North Cyprus. The adult turtles nest from mid-may to the end of August, and the babies hatch during August and early September. Based at the nearby Aligadi beach are the conservation volunteers from the Marine Turtle Research group. They provide information on any nest excavations that may be taking place and also allow you to camp overnight on the beach and observe the turtles as they come ashore to lay their eggs.
Kyrenia, a lively, enchanting resort. The Venetian Harbour is the focal point of Kyrenia, set against a backdrop of old Venetian cottages, restaurants and bars, with the 7th Century castle situated at the eastern side. The harbour area is ideal to enjoy a leisurely meal of fresh fish looking out at the colourful fishing boats and elegant yachts or relax with a cocktail and watch the world go by.
Bellapais village, once the home for Lawrence Durrell the author of 'Bitter Lemons' has an impressive 12th Century Gothic Abbey to be discovered, where many live musical performances take place. Nestling in the foothills of the Five Finger mountain range, surrounded by olive and citrus groves, Bellapais has many good restaurants from which to dine and admire the truly stunning birds-eye views of the Kyrenia coastline. You can wander through the extensive gardens and soak in the sweet perfume of the wild flowers, jasmine, orchids and herbs.
Famagusta, once a busy port with plenty of ancient ruins and buildings to explore, has historical connections to Richard the Lionheart's Crusaders. The ancient city of Salamis is worth a visit,where the remains of the baths and huge amphitheatre are some of the most impressive in the Mediterranean.
Nicosia, the capital city of the island, is divided into Turkish and Greek sectors by a boundary known as the Green Line. To get a flavour of the city you can take one of the informative free walking tours.
