Fabulous 3 bed 2 bathroom stone villa in the picturesque village of Alagadi. The villa is set in superb grounds/gardens, with its own private swimming pool. Villa Donatello is located on possibly the best site in the village & has amazing views of the sea in front and of the mountains behind.
Internally on the ground floor there's a large open plan living & dining space including separate kitchen, bathroom and 2 double bedrooms. Upstairs is the large master bedroom with ensuite bathroom. Patio doors lead out onto the upstairs balcony with superb elevated views all round the village, sea and mountains.
Outside to the rear is a large patio area running along the villa towards the swimming pool, providing ample space for sunbathing.
The gardens are well established with a mixture of bougainvillea, jasmine and palm trees.
Alagadi has several well known restaurants just a short stroll away, and is only a 15 minute drive into the historic town of Kyrenia.

Wonderful villa in rural location with fabujlus views over the sea
By Joanne Palmer on 12-Aug-2019
We had a fabulous stay at Villa Donatello. The booking process was really simple and the owners were very accommodating. The villa is surrounded by a mature garden with fabulous views over the hills and the sea. The villa has a very homely feel and we were very comfortable there during our stay. I would not hesitate to recommend the villa to anyone wanting a holiday in Northern Cyprus.
Another great Holiday
By Paul And Lynne Howe on 06-Jul-2019
We have just returned from our third visit to VIlla Donatello (VDT). Yet again it’s been a wonderful holiday, Since our last visit a year ago, the en suite bathroom has been completely renewed, which has enhanced an already excellent villa. Alagadi is a quiet place, with its own beach where turtles hatch, so it’s possible to stroll down for a swim if you fancy a change from the Villa’s own pool. Everything we needed was provided, but if any help is required, the local manager and maintenance people make regular visits and are readily available on the end of the mobile phone the owner provided. A car is essential to get around the area. We left it to the Villa manager to organise our car and transport, totally hassle free. VDT’s location is ideal for a trip to Karpaz although we too ventured as far as we could in the other direction too. Altogether a magnificent place. We will definitely return to Northern Cyprus and when we do, we certainly won’t look further than Villa Donatello.
Wow, just wow

This was my third visit to Donatello, and once again it didn’t disappoint. The villa itself is perfect. Clean, comfortable, very well equipped and clearly very well looked after. The addition of the ‘egg’ chairs is genius! In fact I spent a lot of time curled up in one with my g&t, and some crisps, just admiring and trying to absorb the view. And what an amazing view, with the sea in front and the mountains behind it’s stunning, so very hard to convey the beauty of it. We hired a car for trips to the supermarket and this time a visit to Bellapais (the Abbey is beautiful) and Kyrenia. We also went to Benoz and St Kathleen’s in the village for dinner, Benoz being slightly nicer.
The pool is lovely, again very clean and well looked after, with comfortable sunbeds and shade if needed.
Donatello is the perfect place to unwind from a busy life, so much so I’m looking forward to returning very soon.
Thankyou to Denise for making sure everything was in order and to Derek who provided all the help and information needed for a smooth and totalling relaxing holiday.

We’ve just returned from another superb holiday in Villa Donatello (VDT), our second visit to this exceptional villa. We have stayed in several areas around Kyrenia and indeed elsewhere in Alagadi, which was when we were first attracted to VDT because of its location and privacy. There are excellent and contrasting views from what is the highest point in the village, with the sea and bay to one side and the mountains to the other.
Alagadi is a quiet village, with an exceptional beach and a few restaurants, Benoz being the best in our opinion. The villa is about 10 minutes drive from Catalkoy and about 20 minutes to the centre of Kyrenia, where there are many excellent restaurants. Our favourite is Efendi, but in the hills there are numerous great restaurants such as Levant in Karmi.
A car is a must, but rental is cheap, as are taxis, however having a car is great for sightseeing as Northern Cyprus is a beautiful place. Despite visiting many times, there’s still loads to see and much of it within a short drive. Further afield, Famagusta is a nice day out and this year for the first time, we visited the tip of the Karpaz peninsular, a beautiful drive.
A major factor that drew us back to VDT, is the prompt and efficient communication we received from the owner as well as the excellent local support afforded by Denise, the property manager and Andy, the maintenance Guru!
It is clear that the owners care about VDT. Not only is the decoration and furniture of a high standard, there has been continuous improvement around the villa since we first stayed in Alagadi, including the installation of marble steps into the pool and solar power connection to the pool pump, which keeps the pool in perfect condition. There are many extras we haven’t seen in the other villas we’ve rented, including unlimited reliable Wi-Fi and a mobile phone, which is really handy for making restaurant reservations or contacting Denise if you have any queries. Although we haven’t experienced major issues with electricity, there’s even a back up generator should it be necessary.
Our perfect holiday is to relax by the pool during the day, do the occasional bit of sightseeing then go for a nice meal in the evening. Equally, for when we fancy a late evening around the pool, all the facilities exist, including a BBQ, to enjoy a meal in. This villa is perfect for us, which is why after our first stay, we did not hesitate in booking again and as I write, we are looking forward to a third holiday next year.

VDT did not disappoint. From our first enquiry about staying in the villa through to after we got home, Derek made sure our trip was seamless and that we had all the information we needed. The villa was beautiful and well kept in a lovely location. The sea and mountain views were pretty breathtaking! Our stay in the villa was very comfortable with good air con and a spacious interior. Being just a short drive into Kyrenia VDT was the perfect location, out of the hustle and bustle of the centre but close enough to venture in. The Harbour was also lovely with many delicious places to eat. Our day at 'Escape Beach' was one of the best and I would say it was definitely the best beach in the north. Approx 30 mins away and after a small entrance fee it was a great beach day with good facilities and nice food I would definitely recommend VDT to friends and family and our only regret was not booking longer! Thank you very much Derek
Perfectly relaxed week in the sun
By Sophie B on 19-Jun-2017
We had a wonderful week staying at the beautiful Villa Donatello! The weather was fabulous and the location of the villa was perfect. It was a very short walk to turtle beach, a protected beach which had very few people on it as it was not touristy like several of the other beaches in Cyprus. And the temperature of the sea was so warm you can literally float in it all day long! This beach also had the bonus of having turtles venturing onto the beach late at night to lay their eggs- a really memorable experience where we managed to see one very close up (take warm clothes with you for the evening if you would like to do this though!). The villa has everything you could possibly want in it for cooking, relaxing and chilling by the pool, and it even has at least 4 restaurants which were a very short walk away; Benoz, a beautiful family fun restaurant was our favourite. Huge thanks to Derek and Denise for all the communications before and during the holiday which made us feel so welcome. They even organised the taxi and car hire which was hugely appreciated and meant that our car was parked outside our villa as we arrived- such fabulous service! We would highly recommend Villa Donatello to anyone wanting a relaxing week to unwind from the real world, it was absolutely perfect.

his was our third stay at Alagadi and our second stay at villa Donatello. I love this place. The location is perfect, with restaurants within walking distance, a beautiful sea and mountain view and a villa with everything you could possibly need to ensure you have an amazing holiday. You can do as much or as little as you like here, we did little! We hired a car (probably a necessity) mostly just to drive to the local supermarket to stock up on beer and bbq essentials, and a couple of shopping trips to Kyrenia. To sum it up. Mornings were spent breakfasting on the patio with a gorgeous mountain view. Days were spent lazing around the pool with the occasional dip to cool off, efes in hand to quench thirst whilst admiring the sea view. Evenings consisted of pre dinner cocktails watching the sun set from the front porch, then dinner, either a short walk to one of the local restaurants or a BBQ at 'home'. We look forward to returning.
Everything we expected.and more!

We have stayed in many villas over the last 20 years and this has to be one of the best! As an ex Operations Manager for a holiday company I admit to being very difficult to please. The help and assistance of the owner both before and after our stay was excellent. The villa was very well equipped, showing a lot of thought and has to be cleanest we have ever visited! On site help from the handyman/pool cleaner was also greatly appreciated. The location was blissful and the road was much quieter than envisaged and not really a problem. To have a beach and a restaurant (Benoz) within walking distance was an added bonus. We would be happy to recommend this to friends and family and hope that we can revisit.

We stayed her for 15 nights and it is just simply wonderfrul. Everything and more you could wish for, the view is stunning, the restaurant down the road ( st kathleens is the best), the air con works, the pool is great, this is the nicest of the few properties that surround it, only slight downside is the road noise from behind but this is more than made up for in the villa and its amenities. Great for spending a morning on the veranda having a leisurely breakfast and listening to the call to prayer, looking at the sea or the mountains, and hearing the local goat herder. The jasmine at the front is stunning and smells wonderful. Would return tomorrow if we could Property clean, as described and would highly recommend
So Good We're Going Again .For the fourth Time
By Tom Richards on 03-Aug-2014
The last time we were at Donatello was June 2013 it was our 3rd visit , and it never disappoints, to begin with it had everything you would need for a relaxing holiday in the sun , but the owners are always thinking of ways to improve your experience, one example this year is the addition of WIFI, if you need to keep in the 'loop'. Everything is clean and well maintained , including the pool where the water is always spot on , the owner to customer care makes the holiday worry free, you can just relax, and absorb the peaceful village location, Restaurants are just ten minute walk , we prefer BENOZ, good food, very pleasant surroundings, really nice family who run it , various types of cuisine available on road to Kyrenia, very nice Thai restaurant 15 mins by car called the Bow Thai, for example. Can't wait for September ......for our fourth visit. Tom Richards & family , North Wales
