Kyrenia villa description

Orchid Villa has stunning views of the mountains, the sea is nearby and is situated in a small, quiet development of three villas. It was completed in July 2005 on a large 1000 square metres plot which has been landscaped retaining mature olive trees and planted with numerous specimen plants. 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. Set near local amenities and the village of Lapta, the villa is also perfectly situated for exploring the unspoilt coastal and mountain scenery on the island. The town of Kyrenia/Girne is a 25 minutes drive away and its historic harbour, named one of the most beautiful in the world, offers a wide choice of lively bars and restaurants. A few minutes drive will take you to several friendly taverna-type restaurant set on the waterfront with lovely sandy beaches. A small supermarket and several restaurants and bars are only a short walk away

Flights and arrival: There are two possible airports for flights into Cyprus, Ercan in the north and Larnaca airport in the south (we do not recommend Paphos airport as this requires long transfer times) Larnaca can be a better choice as there are 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 £65 each way for 4 seater) to the villa worthwhile. However Ercan airport is more conveniently located and accessible from a number of UK airports (Manchester and Stansted amongst others). We can arrange for a taxi to meet you at Ercan (£30 or free with 7 days or more car hire) or Larnaca airport and bring you to the villa. Our managing agent will meet with you at the villa and answer any queries you may have. 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.

Travel: The villa is only a short walk from the main road, and small buses travel frequently into Kyrenia (also known as Girne and this name is used on the buses) 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 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 car hire from Larnaca airport is difficult to arrange due to cross border insurance problems. but there's no harm in checking online if you would prefer that option.

Further details: Northern Cyprus is blessed with one of 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 some shops and restaurants, but you will also need Turkish Lira. Cash machines are readily available.
The villa's electricity system is equiped with standard english three pin sockets. so if guests take any items requiring a two pin socket an adaptor is required,
Driving in all of Cyprus is on the left.

                      Located in a quiet residential area close to the village of Lapta the villa is only 500metres from Galip's Cove beach resort. The villa is also a short walking distance from the Hotel Sempati with its pool and friendly restaurant and bar. A new feature for 2012 was a flat green bowling centre with bar and restaurant only 200 metres from the villa. A 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk take you to Sardunya Bay with its sandy beach and cafe/bar with free WiFi. For a wider range of day time activities the LA Hotel, with its large sandy cove and the Escape Beach Resort are just a short drive away. There are well stocked supermarkets within easy reach and a corner shop close by. Several restaurants and bars are to be found in the locality (Silver Rocks by the sea is a must), others of different nationalities between Lapta and Kyrenia (also known as Girne), and many more in Kyrenia and Bellapais, a beautiful village described in Lawrence Durrell's novel 'Bitter Lemons'.
