Traditional stone cottage which has been totally renovated. Situated in the traditional part of Lapta village with the Besparmak mountains rising steeply behind. This is a lovely area for walking and the cottage is only a few minutes by car to the sea.
Have just returned from spending 2 lovely weeks in Lapta. The villa was as expected and described, spacious & well equipped. It was spotlessly clean and attached to the owners beautiful garden. A welcome pack awaited us, which was most welcome. There is a wide choice of restaurants along "the strip", all of which are excellent value. Our favourites were Charcos which is nearby within walking distance, the Cabin and Veni Vici The owners were perfect hosts and we enjoyed our time with them; they made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them . We felt like their friends from the word go.
The little cottage is as described.
Ish and Mehmet are lovely friendly helpful people and will do all in their power to help you.
We joined them on a trip to the Karpaz and had a great time.
All in all a more enlightening experience than most of the properties on offer.
By the way Ish is a great cook and provided us with a barbecue evening followed at a later date with one of her home made offerings. But beware you are expected to indulge!!

I arrived early March with the objective of finding long term retirement accommodation.
In spite of the indifferent weather,Ish and Mehmet made my stay most warming and pleasureable.
The cottage was exactly as described,spotless with everything you need and a great welcome pack.
I have no hesitation in recommending this old village location as a base to do as much or as little as you like.
We had wonderful lovely 14 days in the old village lapta with the typical life of north cyprus. The start was perfect with a fully fridge ( milk, eggs, water, sugar, salt, a bottle of wine and so on). We stayed by Ish and Mehmet (the warmheart owners). They gave us a lot of important informations about the near area and the island of cyprus. We felt us from the beginning to the end like at home. The studio is a typical old cyprus stone house since 300 years and all is very clean and new renovated. You have very good space for 2 ore 3 persons. For us was the nicest place sitting under the patio and have a great view to the beautiful garden. Every day you smell and feel the different flowers of cyprus and on the top you have a great look over lapta and the ocean. We enjoyed our holiday so much and especially the quietness without traffic and hectic. But if you like, you can find the town girne by 15 minutes drive. Good restaurants, supermarkets and open markets (fresh fruits and vegetables, cheese, bread. ...) are in the near of the studio in Lapta. But most of the time we used the well equipped kitchen with all what you need and enjoyed our dinner sometimes with a bottle of wine on the patio by the garden. In the near you find a lot of nice different beaches for swimming. The water is very clean, blue and turquis and on october the temperatures of the water were around 26 degrees. You don't like go out. Dear Ish and Mehmet we like to say thank you very much for your wonderful host. We had a great time here in your studio and we will miss you. We like to come back soon again. For us a perfect stay in cyprus. We are very sad that we have to leave tommorrow. Frank and Ina
We stayed here for 5 nights in October 2014. The studio was very well equipped with a lovely garden. Our hosts were very friendly & knowledgeable regarding the area and nothing was too much trouble. A very enjoyable stay which we hope to repeat in the future. We have returned home with very fond memories of our stay and hosts.
We spent 5 beautiful days in this cottage. It is a perfect place to enjoy the countryside of North-Cyprus and to see historical buildings at the same time. We had the chance to get to know typical Cyprian flowers, plants, food and villages as well. The kitchen was well-equipped, the rooms were clean and cozy. We spent many hours in the garden with reading, playing or just relaxing.
The hosts were lovely and helped us get acquainted with this area and showed lots of exciting things. We have to return to them again.
There are a number of small sandy coves scattered along this stretch of the coast. The nearest would take only a few minutes to drive there. Most of the beaches have sunbeds, umbrellas etc for hire. Water sports such as scuba diving are widely available locally.
Travel: Car not necessary but recommended
There are a number of flights available from the UK to Ercan Airport in the North. Alternatively you can arrange flights to Larnaca (South Cyprus). Travelling time to Ercan is approximately 50 minutes by road. Larnaca is roughly 90 minutes away. We can arrange pick ups from either airport and also car hire.
Kyrenia is about 20 minutes away by car. Kyrenia has a very picturesque old harbour overlooked by it's ancient castle. St Hilarion, one of the crusader castles, is also within a 20 minute drive. In the spring, many people arrange to go on orchid walks as there are many plants that are only found in Cyprus. Apart from in the middle of summer, walking is a popular pastime. There are many trails throughout the countryside and in the mountains behind Lapta.
