Guests' comments: 'The position of the house is marvellous, with wide views from balconies on both the ground and upper floors, so breakfast and evening drinks were spent on different levels to enjoy the sunsets and the shade.'
'The house is in a great location - it is much preferable to be in the hills of Bellapais than down in Kyrenia.'
'We had a fantastic holiday and felt very at home in a lovely house.'
'Gorgeous garden - lots of Bougainvillea.'
'Even with two families we had masses of room.'
'The luxury and comfort made our holiday the best we've ever had.'
'We enjoyed watching the turtles laying their eggs at Turtle bay (Alagadi) only a short drive away.'
'This is a special, well-loved villa.'

Our aim is to make booking your holiday at Villa Manzara as simple as possible. We can help you with flight details, car hire arrangements and useful local information to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible.

Eating Out: Eating out is one of the great pleasures in Northern Cyprus and vsitors will be spoilt for choice with the huge number of restaurants available, at least seven in the small village of Bellapais alone and hundreds more throughout the Kyrenia area. Turkish cuisine is always plentiful and inexpensive and an absolute 'must' to try, but there are plenty of English, Italian, Indian and Chinese restaurants too. Recommendations from both the owners and visitors will be found in the information pack left at the villa.

Flights and Car Hire: FLIGHTS. We can offer help with competitive car hire prices from our local car hire company. Please contact us if you need advice about flights and local attractions.
CAR HIRE. A car is essential as public transport is limited. We strongly recommend pre- booking your car. We can offer competitive rates, excellent service including free airport transfers and a wide range of vehicles. Your car will be delivered on your first morning when payment may be made in Sterling or Euros or with a debit or credit card. Please contact us for further details.

The local car hire comany can provide a taxi service to local locations, and several restaurants offer free local pick up and drop off services.

Bellapais, immortalised by Laurence Durrell's 'Bitter Lemons', offers several restaurants, gift shops and a general 'corner shop'. The local (good) car hire office & taxi service is also located in Bellapais. The area affords excellent opportunities for walkers. It is a ten minute drive to the harbour town of Kyrenia, twenty five minutes to the capital Nicosia, and twenty minutes from the nearest beaches, where turtles lay eggs. The Ercan airport is 45 minutes away, and Larnaca airport is 70 minutes away.

                      Just down the hill from the property there is a supermarket on the main road leading into Kyrenia. 5 mins further down the road is a big supermarket with everything you will need, including local SIM cards. There is a 'Pay as you go' mobile available for our guests.

                      Golf: Korineum Golf & Country Club

                      It’s been a long time coming, but the new Esentepe golf course in Northern Cyprus is well worth the wait. This is located approximately 15 minutes drive from the villa. The Esentepe golf course is not just the first 18 hole golf course in North Cyprus, but a truly international course designed to the highest standards. The course covers some 6600 yards with elegant greens, tricky sand bunkers and water hazards, set amongst olive trees and with the natural beauty of the Northern Cyprus Kyrenia Mountains as a stunning backdrop. You can also practice your swing at the 30 bay driving range, or brush up of your skills with the help of a qualified instructor at the golf academy. If all that exercise makes you hungry, you can dine at the elegant restaurant, or sip a cooling drink at the clubhouse bar.

                      Turtle bay (Alagadi) is a short drive away, this is a protected area as loggerhead and green turtles use it to lay their eggs. There is a visitors centre which operates from 6pm onwards when you can go and watch the turtles.
