Hidden Cypriot treats in Argaka

Argaka holiday rentals sit on the hills that bubble up above the less-trodden Turkish coast of North Cyprus. They emerge from the pine-peppered ridges of the Paphos Forest and the rugged massifs of the Troodos range, artfully fusing fantastic vistas with access to sands, mysterious monasteries and rustic highland hamlets. If you're looking for something off the beaten track this year, all doused in demijohns of Cypriot wine and interspersed with lazy days on the sparkling beaches around resorts like Polis and Latchi, they could just be the perfect choice.

Things to do

Mythical nature around Argaka

Argaka's perch on the north coast of the island is a great base for launching explorations through the famous Akamas Peninsula National Park. That can be found jutting out into the swells of the Mediterranean Sea, just an hour's drive to the west. Have the walking boots and the swimming gear at the ready for your trip there, because it's a vast patchwork of maquis forest and canyons that spill down to sun-coloured sands occasionally trodden by rare hawksbill turtles. The legendary Baths of Aphrodite and the glimmering Blue Lagoon – a snorkelling mecca – only add to the draws.


Adventure beckons in Argaka

Settling a stone's throw from the coastal hotspots of North Cyprus in Argaka holiday rentals means taking a turn for the more unexplored and adventurous corner of this island. You'll still be able to trundle down to the Med-lapped sands of Latsi and beyond, but you can also hit the wiggling roadways that go into the Troodos. Spotting raptors and rare eagles is fun as you drive the winding lanes taking you to inviting trailheads and babbling rivers, mythical monasteries and valleys filled with cedar trees. It's perfect for the intrepid sort.


Argaka draws from spring to autumn

Argaka – and the whole region of North Cyprus besides – is a magnet for visitors from spring to autumn. The best months start towards the end of April and beginning of May, which is when the Paphos Forest and the Troodos Mountains look gorgeous, their wildflowers blooming in swatches of yellow and purple. June, July and August bring the summer rush to the beaches around Polis, and also the best weather – most folk will look to book Argaka holiday rentals then. Autumn, in September and October, is quieter, with plenty of wine tasting on the menu.

Natural features

Choose sands or pine-scented trails in Argaka

The echo of the Polis beaches and the chirp of nightingales can be heard throughout the whole of the Chrysochous Valley, where little Argaka makes its home. It's a rustic and off-beat corner of the island, home to sweeping views over the Med and close to long stretches of beige sand. Many visitors will look for villas with pools, focusing their attention towards the Troodos Mountains instead of the coast. They can delve into the wild Paphos Forest and hike trails of fir trees and cedars, see fig orchards and encounter majestic eagles and raptors and wildflowers and more.
