Catalkoy villa description

Stunning sea views & back drop of mountains is the setting for this villa. Oozing character and charm it is truly a paradise on earth. Just minutes drive from villages and beaches this extremely spacious villa enjoys many original old features. Built and equiped for large groups of friends or families sharing with 17x10m pool that resembles a calm natural lagoon. The outside is furnished with 10 sunbeds, wooden deck chairs, hammocks and an area of calm under an olive tree with sumptuous floor cushions. Olive Trees and Mediterranean gardens surround the villa which melt into the land scape filling the air with scents of lavender, herbs and Jasmin. An outside shaded dining table which seats 12 at pools edge is perfect to enjoy long lunches or romantic dinners on hot balmy nights. Large kitchen which looks out onto the pool has ice maker & water chiller, 5 bedrooms all a/c, 4 walk in shower/wet rooms, fabulous open terrace from kitchen & lounge. A fun villa to be enjoyed by all.


Attractive to artistic specialist groups: Whether its the location of the house built amongst the olive trees, the natural surroundings of the tranquil Mediterranean cactus gardens, the stunning scenery and view from every angle or the wildlife ambling by such as goats, donkeys, lizards and dragon flies this whole property will be an inspiration to your artistic creativity.

Designed with amazing care and attention to every detail by the owner, who is himself an artist this would be the perfect location for organized workshops such as painting, pottery, writing, photographic and yoga.

With property and surrounding gardens /pool of this size its very hard to capture the spaciousness or show all the individual touches that make it special from just a few photographs we would be happy to send more if of interest.

Flights:: There are now 2 international airports serving Northern Cyprus. You can take a direct flight to Larnaca which is in the south of the island,. Flight time is 4 hours, a taxi or mini bus can be arranged to meet you at the airport, the journey time would be approximately 1.20 hours and the cost approx £100 each way for 12 people.
Alternatively, you can take a flight to Ercan which is in the North, taxi from here would be approx 30 minutes and cost approximately £50 each way for 12 people. If you fly to Ercan airport you will go via Turkey, the plane needs to re-fuel in Turkey where you stay on the plane for approx 45 minutes before taking offer - the flight time for this would be 3.5 hours to Turkey and a further 1.15 hours to Cyprus, the advantage here being the journey to the villa this way would only be 30 minutes by taxi.

Car Hire: Hiring a car is most recommended - very good rates available and the car can be delivered to and collected from the villa. Most guests prefer the small Jeeps which are great fun both on and off road, driving is on the left so nice and easy.

Weather: An amazing climate throughout most of the year, with the temperatures never really going down that low even in the winter months although at night and inside the houses can feel chilly which is why we had full central heating fitted along with 2 huge traditional open fires (kitchen/dining end and lounge). By March-April the sun is warming up and the wild flowers are a picture covering the fields and mountains, the are many interesting wild flowers including orchids many of which are indigenous to Cyprus. During summer months the temperatures are high 30's perfect for sun lovers. Sept-Oct are the most popular months of the year still hot by day but cool and breezy at night. Perfect !

For entertainment we also have a Bose ipod docking station perfect to enjoy your own individual music, we have enjoyed this house filling it with friends and family and as yet have not felt the need for a TV/DVD etc. this could change in the future. Whilst we are not against smoking outside we would kindly ask for the house to remain a non smoking area. Having holidayed in N.Cyprus since our children were babies we can highly recommended our baby sitter at very reasonable rates....moreless

Car: Recommended

Situated 5 minutes drive from the small but busy village of Ozankoy, where there are plenty of local restaurants to choose from, 2 simple but very well equiped shops, a butchers plus small bars and a coffee shop or by driving up towards the mountains you reach the picturesque village of Bellapais home to a variety of traditional restaurants and craft shops but most famous for its Abbey. Bellapais is an ideal haven for those seeking a calm and relaxing opportunity to sample the Cyprus of a bygone era.

If you are looking for natural beaches you need to drive for approximately 10 minutes along the east coast road where there are 2 or 3 long white beaches, its easy to see why the turtles have chosen this site as their nesting grounds, turtle beach is part of the world turtle preservation project. We are also approx 25 min drive from the first international standard golf course in N. Cyprus, The Korineum Golf and country Club, surrounded by sea and mountain views, its pure joy !

Other Activities: orchid and wild flower walks, mountain walks, clay shooting, house/garden environment suitable for painters, photographers,

Golf: The Korineum Golf and Country Club is the first international standard course to be opened in N.Cyprus and we are lucky to be approx a 30 minute drive away. Its is nestled towards the mountains with amazing views of the stunning turquoise sea from every hole. The club caters for golfers of varying ability, instruction for beginners and those who need help is provided by the professional staff who operate from the Academy. This is seperate and adjacent to the eighteen hole course. Here there is a driving range with thirty three tees, next door is a pitch and putt facility with bunkers and 2 additional putting greens with 3 full length practice holes for those under instruction. An extremely pleasant bar and outside sitting area along with well equipped pro-shop where one can hire shoes, clubs, trolleys, electric buggies etc. The course is 6,232 mtrs in length and has been designed for all standards, with the shortest hole being 123 mtrs and the longest 515. Each hole being carefully sculpted through the magnificent pine and olive trees is different in character to the last. This is a course which is both a challenge and a temptation luring one back to try and perfect ones performance. Many keen golfers have reported this to be one of the best concerns in northern Cyprus.
