Perfect little paradise

5 of 5
I came to this villa roughly seven years ago, I hadn't ever been to the Northern part of Cyprus, but was going to a wedding. It was very difficult to find a one bedroom villa, until I stumbled over this little gem. After that, I have made sure I kept in contact with Mary, and booked to go this year for two weeks. The property is well stocked, finished with a neutral yet "middle eastern" feel, the air conditioning in the bedroom is a life saver, the kitchen is perfect for those wanting to stay in a couple of nights, but there is a BBQ on the huge sun roof terrace, which is as it sounds a sun trap and a half, housing a large table and areas to sit and enjoy the spectacular views. You will see the sun set over Kyrenia everyday and see the world pass by as you guzzle/sip a gin and tonic. The area of Bellapais is gorgeous and perfect for those like me, who have a rule about driving on holiday, basically I will not do it, so we stayed in the area most nights and had delicious food at all of the restaurants. To name a few, Bella Moon is perfect if you want great service, delicious food and if you are very hungry - they give free mezzes as a starter, so don't go there if you aren't in the mood for a feast. The other favourite was the Bellapais garden hotel Restaurant, which offers and extensive menus for all budgets, lovely wine menu, stunning views of the Abbey and mountains, and the BEST service. Genuinely, they are wonderful. Kybele is a great spot, probably the best in terms of its location, but I wasn't impressed with the service. However you may experience something better, so definitely go there. The Tree of Idleness (I did see the irony when you read my next bit you'll get it), is a good one too, for those after a cheap and cheerful meal, very tasty and great views again but service not great (4 people stood around whilst I was desperate for a bill). I forgive it all though, as genuinely you are in paradise there. The shop in the village is well stocked, and they are real sweeties in there. Only thing Bellapais needs desperately is an ATM machine, for those wanting cash you will have to go to Kyrenia, so its a bit of a pain (especially if you live by my no driving on holiday rule!) Thoroughly recommend this wonderful home from home cottage - I have already sent it to my cousin for consideration and if Mary will allow it we would love to return! thanks again Mary
