A spacious villa (especially as there were only the two of us!) set close to the main road between Famagusta and Iskele, which feels very much like a home from home. Not quite warm enough in November to use the pool, though it looked very inviting. The villa is a comfortable base for visiting the eastern side of North Cyprus, with both Famagusta and Iskele a short drive away. (A car is definitely recommended for North Cyprus) The more developed northern shore is under an hour away by car. There are a few restaurants within walking distance, and beaches are a 5-10 minute drive. All the restaurants we ate in were great, but if you want a real local experience, we'd recommend Mertekli Meyhane in Mutluyaka, and have the fixed menu (Warning - go when you're VERY hungry!). Also don't miss Petek Patisserie in Famagusta Old Town (and a local branch in Iskele) There are plenty of other recommendations in the visitors book, you won't be short of places to see or eat. Jackie who looks after the villa is also very helpful. A great stay - thank you!
P.S. if you drive out to the Karpas peninsula, you'll need carrots or some other vegetable/fruit to "pay" for access to the road past the monastery - you'll find out why!
