We chose Northern Cyprus for our holiday home as it is set in a quiet location and beautiful landscapes with access to all the amenities you wish for on holiday, you can chose to relax by the pool or take a dolmus/ car drive into the bustling city of Kyrenia to explore the many shops, bars restaurants and history of the island. The summers are hot and the winters are mild excellent for a winter escape from it all.
