Property description

A new 3 bedroom apartment, one of just 36 and only 300 metres from oceans edge in prestigious Lapta Pines Development, just 8 miles from the 16th century Harbour known as Kyrenia. Some say the meds best kept secret.,the jewel of the med.
Flanked by the dramatic Besparmak mountain range, views of mainland Turkey and the dramatic local coastline and nestled in olive and lemon groves.
It is close to shops,hotels and many oceanside restaurants and cafe's. also within close proximity are old Turkish villages, old Lapta and Alsanjack.[eye openers to say the least.] get a haircut and shave for 15ytl [about £4.00][ men only ] Various walks in most directions.
Natural unspoiled beaches just mins away, sardunya bay with its own down to earth bar and retaraunt ,Horseshoe bay with its own fishermans cottage about 15mins drive,he will serve you up catch of the day, but for those who would go up market there are 'Camelot' or 'Escape' and Sun-Set beaches have all water and beach facilities there is also a little secret quiet beach within 5 mins walk at the end of the road to the sempati hotel,. also a couple of water parks,closeby
Lapta in particular has many bars and restaurants that sit right on the waters edge. Come visit you will never be disappointed
those include Silver rocks . The Cabin . the Calamari .. all on the oceans edge and with the lira running at well over 4 to the £ its making all things an absolute bargain
Northern Cyprus - the jewel of the Med: Lefkosa [Nicosia] dating back to the 7th century, visit Ledra Palace, or take a stroll through the streets where you will be thrilled to find old farmers markets with amazing produce, particularly interesting is the Buyuk Han [the great inn] built in 1572 by the Otterman governor mustapha Pasha,,, traders and merchants would stay the night, drink wine and make merriment. Just around the corner is the mansion of dervish pasha built in the 19th century and bears the characteristics of the Turkish architecture of this period. Other places of interest in this city are the Venetian Column, Gamblers Inn and the Kyrenia gate.just recently in the centre they have just opened up the border crossing from north to south ,its a walkway which allows you to spend the day on the Greek side.its good to observe the cultural differences between the two zones, there is a noticeable difference also between the two cuisines...make sure you don't miss the very old central market [Turk side] its an eye opener
Kyrenia, a 14th Century uncomercialised harbour: Dating back to Roman times, was eventually taken over by the Ottermans in 1571 without them firing a single shot. But enough of all the Nostalia, the horseshoe shaped harbour which is filled with old and antique Turkish fishing boats is truly a delight .the low romantic lighting needs to be appreciated at dusk or night, it boasts scores of restaurants, bars cafe's most with outside waterfront dinning but go to the back streets and fined some real jewels. A deal cheaper and perhaps more interesting. Its really very safe in spite of the narrow darkly lit cobbled streets. be prepaid for the wailing of the Imrans from the several mosques which are located in the area calling the believers to prayer Also in the harbour is Kyrenia Castle built by the Byzantines in the 7th century to protect the city from Arab raiders. it has apparently remained intact for centuries but has also been enlarged & better fortified over the last few hundred years.. there are a couple of authentic turkish bars too.
Beaches and relaxiation: Well, there is an area east of Kyrenia known as the Karpaz. Literally mile after mile of golden beaches, turtle breeding grounds actually. wild donkeys ,also. Sea is sparkling aquamarine, and there are some incredibly basic hotels literally on the beach 'the oasis' for one that will cost about £15 per room per night. The owner cooks out on the patio under the stars, a real experience. Nearer the apartment area are some glorious beaches. Camelot, Escape the Sun Set beach club etc. Everything will be available at really affordable prices when it comes to wining and dining northern Cyprus is unsurpassed .how about 3 course including wine for about for under £20 per head [exchange rate permitting] there is a famous meze restaurant (cenap)which will serve you a 24 course meal for about £12 per head. Strong brandy sour cocktails will run you back about £3. North Cyprus is a really good deal ,it is NON EURO and less expensive than anywhere I have been recently, please come visit you wont be disappointed.

Car: Recommended

Lapta Oceanside, is approx 8miles from the famous 14th century harbor of Kyrenia in the Turkish republic of northern Cyprus [trnc].

The closest airport is Ercan [pronounced erchan], direct flights from Stansted, However one can fly into Larnaca in the south and travel across the Greek/Turkish border, cab between £50-£60.pick up from both airports can be arranged. Check on prices of BA and cyprus airways,aegan,and all tour operators eg. monarch, easyjet Thomsons & Thomas Cooke .

For the really adventurous, Easy jet ,pegasus.and atlas jet, fly into Istanbul ,spend a night or two in totally amazing istanbul [the most exciting city in world ] and continue on to erchan ,,only £30-£40.!! .

Lapta Oceanside is becoming a real tourist attraction with 5 star hotels, several casinos,and simply loads of restaurants and bars that literally sit right on the oceans edge. there are some very good spots like the haci-ali hotel with pool and bar over the ocean,The cabin ,Calamari,and a great Italian known as Veni Vici , the calamari fish restaraunt and the cabin sit over the waves too, all excellent food and attractive prices. Also a recently built water park has just been completed 1km away. a walkway and bridge is now under construction , which will be a fabulous attraction along the coastline ..strolling and biking strongly recomended..Walking west in the late afternoon you watch a breathtaking sunset. and end up at the sardunya beach bar ... they have a private sandy beach in its own little bay..

Walking east will soon bring you to a 9 hole golf course and 3 grand hotels.

Within just 5 mins walk from tjhe apartments there is a new bowls club , the only one in the whole of cyprus and very popular for breakfasts with the locals and a swift game ....

Other Activities: windsurfing, water skiing, mountain quad biking, hangliding,horse ridingwater parks

Golf: There are several golf courses i hear the other side of Kyrenia [about 45mins drive].

1]Checkout time is 12 midday unless other arangements have been made ... thank you

2] there is a strict NO SMOKING rule inside the apartment. ][smoking on the patios is ok]

3] due to the recent price hike of electricity on the island it has become necessary to charge electricity costs back to the visitor , in winter spring or summer this is unlikely to exceed £10 per week , however in summer when air-conditioning is sometimes used . depending how low your remote control settings are . it could reach over £25.00 per week it is advisable to take a reading from the meter as you enter the property .it will only be charged at local electric companys rates . it is suggested that you put the temps on the remotes to be comfortable at between 22-24 degrees.

4] since this ad was posted a 400 channel 'nilesat' dish for the tv has been installed [about 17 channels are english speaking inc. bbc world,cnn, al jezeera. and many movie channels etc

Lastly wi-fi seems to be available from several ''unsecured' users around the development .however each apartment does have a top up system ,if your neighbour has topped up you can share the cost it lasts for a month and is 50ytl [£13] £6.50 each .


WI-FI HAS JUST BEEN INSTALLED and those with tablets and smart phones can just top-up and get online
