The expansive air-conditioned two-storey Villa Delamare features four bedrooms and four bathrooms. An airy, marbled entrance hall sets the style of this detached villa, which is situated just below the picturesque village of Bellapais. The ground floor has a comfortable lounge with a terrace overlooking the pool deck.
On the other side of the hall is one of the twin bedrooms with shower room/wc next door and a spacious kitchen leading out to a veranda for al fresco dining. A marble staircase ascends from the hall to the first floor where three more en suite bedrooms overlook the pool and sparkling sea. The master suite has a large double bed, private facilities with bath and balcony. At the top of the stairs is a door leading to a balcony with stairs to the roof top terrace affording fabulous 360 degree panoramic views. The pool deck houses a 13m x 4m pool surrounded by an attractive flower garden with plenty of space to soak up the rays in comfort.
Eating out is one of the great pleasures in Northern Cyprus and vsitors will be spoilt for choice with the huge number of restaurants available, at least seven in the small village of Bellapais alone and hundreds more throughout the Kyrenia area. Turkish cuisine is always plentiful and inexpensive and an absolute 'must' to try, but there are plenty of English, Italian, Indian and Chinese restaurants too.

Golf: Korineum Golf & Country Club It’s been a long time coming, but the new Esentepe golf course in Northern Cyprus is well worth the wait. This is located approximately 15 minutes drive from the villa. The Esentepe golf course is not just the first 18 hole golf course in North Cyprus, but a truly international course designed to the highest standards. The course covers some 6600 yards with elegant greens, tricky sand bunkers and water hazards, set amongst olive trees and with the natural beauty of the Northern Cyprus Kyrenia Mountains as a stunning backdrop. You can also practice your swing at the 30 bay driving range, or brush up of your skills with the help of a qualified instructor at the golf academy. If all that exercise makes you hungry, you can dine at the elegant restaurant, or sip a cooling drink at the clubhouse bar. Nearby Turtle bay (Alagadi) is a short drive away, this is a protected area as loggerhead and green turtles use it to lay their eggs.
The villa was everything we hoped for and exactly as described. It was well maintained and very clean. At one point we needed a light bulb for outside (it was only a small blip), it was done that day. Richard helped with the whole booking process including recommending a hire care & transfer company. Meeting the person for the hire car and the manager of the property was wonderful, they were both helpful and knowledgeable.
We have been on many villa holidays and this was by far our favourite. Little things that we have not always had in other villas were the icing on the cake, such as a cleaner half way through our stay and providing pool towels (our luggage was certainly lighter!).
Although Errol's restaurant is in walking distance, due to the roads being unlit country roads, we decided to drive. There are many fantastic places to eat. Definitely go to Bellapais to see the monastery, also if you are going in the evening the restaurants there offer a free pick up and drop off service. In Kyrenia itself our favourite restaurant is Niazi's, excellent food & service at great prices. We decided to use a local taxi that night organised by the car hire person, it was £10 each way. Also try Mardo's ice cream parlours, lots of flavours and ridiculously cheap prices.
You cannot beat North Cyprus for weather, friendly people and beautiful villas at great prices, this being one of the best.
Arriving at night we couldn' t see much as the taxi drove us through narrow winding lanes up to the villa, but once inside we knew we had chosen well. There were only two of us so first we had the difficult decision of choosing bedrooms, all overlooked the pool with views of the coast beyond and were clean with en suite bathrooms . We spent most of our time outside by the large pool, which is surrounded by gardens planted with lavender & rosemary bushes and ate all meals at the pool side table. There is a good sized, well equipped kitchen and a large living room too, which we never used! G & Ts on the upstairs terrace watching the sun set was especially enjoyable. The village of Ozankoy is within walking distance with Erols Restaurant being a favourite. Bellapais Abbey is just a short car ride uphill and there are a good selection of restaurants in the village. Having negotiated our way along the many little roads we were able to drive to the hustle & bustle of Kyrenia, a 10 minute drive away, but we always enjoyed returning to the peace and quiet of Villa Delamere with only the occasional sound of goat bells and the muezzin to disturb our peace. Everything was taken care of and all arrangements regarding taxi pick up at the airport and hire car rental were organised by Richard, the owner, and together with Kristina's help, all went smoothly. We hope to return to this lovely spot, perhaps with family and friends.
This was our second visit to Villa Delamare and I know it will not be our last..
We went as a group of six, two adults and four teenagers, who enjoyed having the large pool to themselves all day and the luxury of their own bathrooms. The villa was as lovely as we remembered with everything we needed, the views are amazing. Richard the owner and Kristina the manager were as helpful as usual and it was lovely to see Kristina again, she recommended a great boat trip that departs from the Marina, which is a lovely place to visit, day or evening and was on hand to direct us back on track when we got lost without a map!! We ventured out for a meal to Buffavento's, a lovely traditional restaurant near five finger mountain about 20 mins drive away. If you would like to stay closer to the villa, we had a very nice meal at the Corner House in Ozankoy village and at Bellapais Gardens Hotel. Depending on the time of year of your visit the turtle project is a very good place to visit, certainly enjoyed by our teenagers. We again had a great time and can't wait to return again.
Our party of 4 couples had a wonderful time at Villa Delamare in July 2014. The accommodation layout was ideal for 8 adults, with the benefit of all bedrooms having their own bathroom facilities. The large pool was very welcoming at all times of the day, and the patio and poolside areas were ideal for relaxing during the day and evenings. The roof terrace and bedrooms on the first floor had fantastic views down to the coast and behind amazing views of the mountains up to Bellapais Monastery. The village of Ozankoy is a 10-15 min walk, where you will find restaurants and shops, however a car is essential if you want to explore further. The owner Richard was very helpful at the time of booking and his property Manager Kristina was extremely helpful during our stay (especially when we locked ourselves out). If you’re looking for a private villa in an idyllic location, we’d recommend Villa Delamare - we plan to return as soon as we can.....
My bridal party and I stayed at this villa for 10 days and it was absolutely lovely. Peaceful location and very well decorated and stocked. All the bedrooms have a bathroom which is ideal for large parties.
The villa manager, Kristina and Richard the owner are lovely to deal with as well as being helpful with any queries.
The only thing missing is wifi but this can be found in local cafés and restaurants although this wasn't ideal for us when wedding planning but it is great if you want to get away from it all. A car is also essential for the villa location as it is in a countryside location.
Supermarket and local shops are an easy drive away.
Would recommend and would love to go back in the near future.
Stayed at the lovely villa Delamare during the school holidays with my wife and son for 4 weeks.
We found it to be a spotlessly clean, spacious, with plenty of clean bed clothes and towels (including pool towels).
The villa is located in a very quiet peaceful spot below Bellapais Abbey with stunning views down to Kyrenia and the sea in front and the mountains behind.
The owner Richard was extremely helpful every step of the way and provided us with a simple to follow map and instructions how to get there, as well as plenty of information on local places of interest and restaurant recommendations. He can also arrange transfers to and from the airport and car hire on request.
The local restaurants we liked best were Errols which has very good food at a very reasonable price, and is within walking distance, and Beyti which is a Turkish kebab restaurant in Kyrenia behind the Colony hotel, the kebabs here are served up in huge portions. If your kids like the occasional fish & chips then I recommend Salty's an English style fish & chip shop on the road into Kyrenia just past Lemars supermarket.
Any problems during our stay which was few and far between, was dealt with quickly and efficiently by Kristina who looks after the villa for Richard, lives close by and is just a phone call away.
We found the villa to be very comfortable and in a great location for exploring the sites of Northern Cyprus, and hope to be returning there as soon as possible.
Thank you Richard & Kristina for a lovely holiday.
Situated 5 minutes drive from either the small but busy village of Ozankoy, where there are plenty of local restaurants to choose from, 2 simple but very well equiped shops, a butchers plus small bars and a coffee shop or by driving up towards the mountains you reach the picturesque village of Bellapais home to a variety of traditional restaurants and craft shops but most famous for its Abbey and the 'Tree of Idleness' imortalised by Laurence Durell's book 'Bitter Lemons'. Bellapais is an ideal haven for those seeking a calm and relaxing opportunity to sample the Cyprus of a bygone era. If you are looking for natural beaches you need to drive for approximately 10 minutes along the east coast road where there are 2 or 3 long white beaches, its easy to see why the turtles have chosen this site as their nesting grounds, turtle beach is part of the world turtle preservation project. We are also approx 25 min drive from the first international standard golf course in N. Cyprus, The Korineum Golf and country Club, surrounded by sea and mountain views.
