We travelled by car from Germany to Northern Cyprus. Our first holiday on the island. Our expectations were exceeded! Vineyard Villa and Carola and Oz contributed significantly to this. We fell in love not only with the villa but also with the area. Ilgaz is a very special place with wonderful people. We couldn't have spent our holiday any happier. We met so many nice people and Oz and Carola were always there for us. Now it's time to go - tonight we're heading back to Germany. We leave this island with great memories and one thing is for sure - we will come back! We definitely read a visit to Hoots! Ibrahim cooks sensational food and his wife Lydia makes the very best desserts.
We are a family of six visiting Cyprus for the first time, looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday. We certainly found that in this wonderful villa, in the beautiful village of Ilgaz. The best thing about the whole experience was the incredible hospitality and attention received from the villa owners. Carola is a wonderful, kind and friendly lady who treats guests as if they were members of her own family. From answering my initial email expediently, to arranging pick-up from and to Larnaca Aiport, to ensuring we had a generous welcome pack (food and drink) awaiting us, to stacking the villa full of everything you could possibly need, to maintaining the pool in superb condition at all times, to offering help and advice about where to go / what to do etc... all without the slightest hint of intrusion... made the whole experience so special! The journey from Larnaca Airport to Ilgaz is about 75 minutes. The villa sits high up in the mountains which allowed us spectacular views of the sea, mountain ranges, sunset, sunrise etc. There are no shops within walking distance and therefore you will need a car for shopping, sightseeing etc. The villa is on two floors with the upper one being especially spacious. There is a wonderful balcony on the upper floor that encircles the whole villa, giving you too many spots to choose from for a quiet sit down to enjoy the scenery. The highlight of the villa must be the swimming pool which is massive! There is a shallow half and a deep end for the more experienced swimmers. There is an enormous space encircling the pool where you can place your sunbeds or have a walk around! BBQ in this villa is a must and there is a purpose built area for this. There are many leisurely activities to enjoy in North Cyprus but we chose the boat trip, jeep safari up the mountains and a visit to Alagadi beach (very quiet). We also did just about all the available water sports! We had a wonderful time during the visit and would thoroughly recommend the villa, the village and above all the owners, Carola and Oz. If you are after a quiet, peaceful break from the hubbub of daily life, this is the place to visit.
Vineyard Villa is set in a beautiful quiet village with a multitude of lovely spots to sit and absorb the view, the weather, the peace, the wildlife or whatever you wish. We are a family of six and the house absorbed us all - as did the enormous pool which was supreme! We probably had one of the best, if not the best, most relaxing holiday ever. The house is incredibly well equipped and really don't bother bringing any books! The fans and air con work brilliantly. The house is perfectly placed to access everything you might need on your break. Along the main road there are a multitude of eateries and supermarkets. There are empty coves and beaches within 30 minutes drive or busier activity filled ones much closer. For the more adventurous a longer trip to the Karpaz Peninsula is perfectly doable. Again within a short drive - and driving is easy here - there are turtle releases to see, make a visit to Girne / Kyrenia ( a late afternoon / evening trip might be worth contemplating), Hilarion Castle and Bellapais Monastery. We ran out of time but I can't imagine a more spectacular place to go paragliding. Carola and Oz are totally approachable, helpful and wonderful hosts and we can't thank them enough. We feel very privileged to have stayed at Vineyard Villa and would return in a heartbeat. — Mary V, 14 Aug 2019
