Catalkoy villa description

Villa Manzara, Bellapais, Nr. Kyrenia is a Luxury privately owned Villa with 3 air-conditioned bedrooms - sleeps 6 (we can add a camp bed or a cot for an additional child). We are in a small secluded and extremely quiet development of only 4 properties, built within an olive grove - we still have 8 olive trees in our garden. We have a large private pool and an extensive patio area with BBQ, as well as a long private garden and drive to the front of the villa.

**** We have our own website at www.villamanzara.co.uk for more info and lots of lovely photos!! ****

Free Welcome Pack, free local phone calls FREE WiFi.

In mountain foothills, our villa is on the outskirts of Bellapais, near Kyrenia, and so a hire car is recommended. The villa is a 10 minute walk from Ozankoy, a typical Turkish Cypriot village with several restaurants and a small local mini-market.
There are stunning views from three patios and a balcony - enjoy gazing at the blue Mediterranean or the majestic mountain backdrop. Girne (Kyrenia) town centre is 10 minutes by car, a supermarket and a petrol station are within 7 minutes; small mini-markets, bars, cafes and restaurants within 5 minutes.

Welcome Pack - We supply a comprehensive welcome pack comprising local bread, butter, cheese, crackers, eggs, milk, orange juice, beer and white wine. In season, local fruit included. Please enjoy this with our compliments. An electric Water Dispenser provides you with cold Spring Water and has a hot tap option to take care of all your drinks needs.

Our English property managers, who live nearby, are always available to offer assistance if required.

Our spacious villa is fully cleaned and prepared for your arrival with fresh bed linen, towels, bath sheets and kitchen towels before every let. (We do not provide beach/pool towels - please bring your own).

During main letting weeks, our preferred changeover day is Saturday but please do enquire about other days. During multi-week lettings, clean towels and clean bed linen are provided at the end of each week. Your property management team will arrange a time to call at the villa.

Access to the villa is any time after 4.30pm. On departure, you should vacate the villa by 9:30am. PLEASE NOTE: These times must be strictly adhered to, in order to allow our property management enough time to prepare the villa for the next guest, to the standard you would expect. Please bear this in mind when planning your flights.

If your return flight is late in the day, arrangements can be made for your luggage to be stored at the offices of our recommended car hire company. Simply retain your car and spend your remaining time exploring more of the island before you and your luggage are transferred to the airport for your return flight.

In mountain foothills, our villa is on the outskirts of Bellapais, near Kyrenia, and so you will need a hire car.

                          Diana, Lara and Alagadi beaches are all easily accessible by car. Escape Beach in Alsancak is one of the safest beaches close to Kyrenia. Many hotels have private beaches to use for a small fee. Many quiet beaches are found on the Karpas Peninsula. Sailing, water skiing, power boat, Banana & Ringo rides can be found locally at Dolphin Water sports at Diana Beach at the Catalkoy turning off the coast road, by the Coca Cola Depot.

                          If you fancy cruising around the Med, a fresh fish lunch, swimming from the boat, book a day trip at Kyrenia harbour. There is a National Park in the Karpaz -find birds, wild donkeys, turtles & rare flora. Sightseeing tours: Contact the Tourist Information Office at the Harbour.

                          There are several beaches where Loggerhead and Green Turtles lay their eggs between June and October. Try Octopus Aqua Park in Catalkoy. There are 2 karting tracks nearby. Must see! - Kyrenia Castle, St. Hilarion Castle, Bellapais Abbey, Roman remains at Salamis, Soli Vouni etc.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: Owners Tina and Peter are now persons of leisure, having both recently retired. We live in a tiny cottage in a very rural setting, just outside Bromsgrove, Worcestershire.

                          Why the Owner Chose Catalkoy:
                          11 years ago we went to Kyrenia for a holiday over the Christmas period. We had been to the South and wondered what differences we would find in the mysterious north. What we found was a wonderfully unspoilt country, with the most hospitable, friendly people, and an incredibly low crime rate - most people don't ever lock their car. Having fallen in love with the place, we went property-hunting - looking at several possible villas. However, the manager of the hotel introduced us to his uncle, who was buiolding a very small number of luxury villas in Bellapais (widely felt to be the 'best' area around Kyrenia). One look at the location, the quality of the build and the associated plot and we were hooked - and Villa Manzara became ours (once built - we saw the villa as a concrete shell!!)

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          We love the sweeping spiral staircase, with windows at each step looking out to the mountains nearby. We also love to sit on the bedroom balcony with a cuppa, looking out to the Mediterranean. Our other indulgence is to sit out at night, with our feet in the pool, and a bottle of local wine, just enjoying the quiet and the stars.
