About the property

Located on the lush mountainside on the edge of the picturesque town of Lapta

The villa is an attractive and ideally designed holiday home offering magnificent views of the blue Mediterranean to the front and the Kyrenia mountain range to the rear. It is built to a high specification by the island’s premier construction company and was completed in summer 2007 on a large 800 square metre plot. The villa benefits from a private 10m x 5m overflow swimming pool and is ideally located for both beach/pool side holidays as well as a more active type holiday. The villa has a fully equipped modern kitchen, high standard finish throughout, a child friendly ground floor terrace and a further terrace on the first floor overlooking the pool and sea to the front and the panoramic Besparmac mountains to the rear.

Arrival: Ercan airport is more conveniently located and accessible from a number of UK airports (Manchester, Stansted amongst others). We can arrange for a taxi to meet you at Ercan (40 pounds sterling each way) and bring you to the villa. Larnaca airport in the south offers a wider range of fares and flights arriving from the UK. There are regular special offers on flights which make the taxi fare from Larnaca (currently 60 pounds sterling each way) to the villa worthwhile.

There will also be a welcome pack of essentials waiting for you. You will find information on use of equipment in the villa and some recommended restaurants.

Local area: The villa is only a short walk from the main road, and small buses travel frequently into Kyrenia and beyond. For exploring North Cyprus however, a car is essential. There are a number of car hire companies available to you, but if you so wish, we can arrange for a competitively priced car hire during your stay. 7 days or more hire and you qualify for free transfers to and from Ercan airport if that is your destination. Just contact us for details. Please note that at the moment there are no car hire facilities at Ercan airport and car hire is very difficult to arrange from Larnaca due to insurance problems.

Further information: Northern Cyprus is blessed with the most pleasing climate in the whole of Europe. The winters are mild, and rarely extend beyond February, and with over 300 days of sunshine a year the temperatures can reach 70F as early as March. In April and May Northern Cyprus is at its most beautiful with fields of wild flowers in full bloom. June, July and August are the hottest months and are ideal for sun worshippers. September and October are the most popular months when the weather is still warm (rarely below 80F) but the evening are pleasantly cooler. Northern Cyprus is very safe. The people are warm and welcoming and English is widely spoken. Sterling is accepted in shops and restaurants and driving is on the left.

A stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic holiday in a beautiful villa. This was our first visit to Northern Cyprus. Karen had arranged transfers for us and a hire car which were both reasonably priced. When we arrived at the villa all the essentials for the 1st day had been supplied so no need to panic about that. The villa itself is in a lovely location if not a little of the beaten track, but then you get the luxury of peace and quiet. It's in very good order with all mod cons and air conditioning. Everywhere is a short car ride away or a long walk, but the bars and restaurants in the area all seem to offer quality food and a reasonable price. I thoroughly recommend renting this villa. Lovely people, nice area and a great holiday.... Thanks again Karen

Absolutely beautiful Villa, with Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this Villa was wonderful. Very relaxing, with a superb Pool to cool us down, as it was very hot [30 Degrees +] when we were there!

There were 7 of us staying at this Villa, and there was plenty of room for everyone!

Lots of local 'Very Good' Restaurants to choose from, and beautiful beaches too!

Our transfer from the airport was arranged for us by Karen & Stephen, which made it a very easy journey.

All in all...very satisfied and would definitely recommend this villa to friends ;))

Holiday - August 2012

  • 5 of 5

Villa was aboslutely beautiful - everything you could need for a relaxing stay (with even a few extra books for when you run out!!). Bathrooms were lovely with lots of linen and towels. Kitchen was well equipped.

Pool and patio area amazing, with plenty of comfy sunbeds.

The little villa guide was really helpful - especially all the restuarant suggestions with great directions. We went to the Aquapark which was great for kids and the Escape beach was brilliant.

Would recommend to anyone who wants a relaxing, simple holiday.

Second Visit

  • 5 of 5

Our second time here and we enjoyed it as much as the first. (Well, even more, because it was our honeymoon!) The villa is beautiful - well-equipped, spacious, clean and well-maintained. The pool is stunning and perfect for swimming lengths or just playing. It makes life easy that Karen and Stephen arrange transfers to/ from Larnaca airport and car hire. There are plenty of excellent restaurants to choose from, all recommended by Karen or other visitors in the detailed information pack in the villa. There are places to visit if you want to (we visited Nicosia and drove to the Karpaz peninsula this time) but relaxing by the pool, enjoying the peace and quiet and soaking up the views is a seductive alternative.

wonderful holiday - july 2010

  • 5 of 5

The villa was exactly as described. The pool and terrace are beautiful with sea views. The bedrooms are spacious with ensuites and the villa was really clean. Karen was very helpful arranging airport transfers and carhire. We had a fantastic holiday, it was really relaxing. We always went to Escape Beach Club which is about a 10 min drive, it is a beautiful beach with an amazing restaurant. There are lots of local restaurants they are not far but you do need a car to get around esp if you have small children. There are lots of places to visit, we went to Bellapais which was beautiful and even made it to Nicosia. I would recommend this property to friends. I am thinking of booking again for next summer.

A number of fine restaurants are to be found in the locality and many more in Kyrenia and the beautiful mountainside village of Bellapais.

Other Activities: A brand new (3 months old) aquapark (Lepothos Aquapark) has just opened and ?s s?tuated just 5km from the house.
