The Crusader Castles of Buffavento, Kantara and the already mentioned St Hilarion. The Karpaz Peninsula is another trip well worth the experience, with its miles and miles of golden sandy beaches; the wild donkeys grazing in scrub land, plus the turtles. To fully appreciate this lovely unspoilt area its best to book an overnight stay, as there are a couple of small hotels offering B&B at very reasonable costs.

Beautiful, Stunning Views With A Private Pool!
By Karis B on 05-Feb-2018
I stayed at this beautiful property with my boyfriend and had a wonderful time here. The Villa is very near to local shops and a short drive/cab to the local town of Kyrenia (Girne) too. The house has beautiful gardens and a lovely huge pool, perfect for sunbathing in private and getting some exercise for those who love to swim. Lovely balconies with scenic views of the mountains for morning and afternoon coffees, and was comfortable and clean throughout. The views are simply stunning! Sallie gave excellent customer service going above and beyond.
Kyrenia (Girne) which is the closest large town, has a beautiful harbour which is lovely to eat at night which is very romantic. The harbour is situated within a medieval castle, and you can visit during the day. The town is great for shopping for designer bags, shoes and jewellery. The medieval Bellapais Abbey is also beautiful and a must see, with a lovely restaurant. There are some lovely restaurants near Villaggio Templos, as well as Silver Rocks which is a short drive from the property. Silver Rocks is a restaurant that has both access to swim into the crystal, blue mediterranean sea and sunbathe on the decking. Ambiance Restaurant & Beach Club is worth going to both during the day and at night for an evening meal. This villa is situated with such beautiful views of the mountains, and is perfect for couples and families, and for those seeking something a little private. I have highly recommended to family and friends and can't wait to book again!
Perfect Holiday Base
By Simon L on 20-Dec-2017
Perfect location close to local restaurants and beaches and yet we enjoyed detached seclusion.
Highly recommended for a family holiday as the property is spacious and well equipped with everything we needed to enjoy the beach or explore the magnificent and interesting history on our doorstep.
There are many high quality restaurants close by or supermarkets to allow self catering.
I have no hesitation in recommending this property as the base for a wonderful holiday in the unspoilt north of Cyprus.
First Class Lodgings
By Jill C on 17-Dec-2017
What a truly beautiful place to stay: we visited as a party of four: the lounge, kitchen and pool area were all perfectly equipped, as we're the en suite bedrooms. The house is far enough from town that you can enjoy the star-lit skies at night but close enough to the main road for access to shops and local transport.
