The Escape 2
About the home
On entering through the gates of the Escape 2 Villa you will find a lovely landscaped garden full of fragrant flowers, fruit trees, lovely sea and mountain views, a private overflow swimming pool with a spacious patio area for sunbathing. Enjoy eating alfresco at the barbecue, or just relax with a good book on the ornate wooden swing or have a siesta in the hammock.
The Escape 2 will appeal to those who enjoy first class accommodation, in a beautiful location close to all the amenities. Alsancak is a popular village with several good restaurants/bars within walking distance. There is also a large well-stocked supermarket also within walking distance.
A wander into the old part of the village is like stepping back in time; here you will find shops, traditional restaurants, coffee bars, a bank, post office, kebab shop and a barbers where you can have a traditional wet shave.
For those who prefer to use local transport there is a bus service that operates from Alsancak to Kyrenia. Fares are approximately 50p. Taxis are also readily available.

The Kyrenia region
North Cyprus is one of the few unspoilt, relatively uncommercial areas left in the Mediterranean. Its natural beauty will leave you breathless, whether it is the range of mountains running parallel to the coast or the wild flowers that grow at their best in spring. Crusader castles perch on three of the Kyrenia mountain peaks and offer views reaching far across the land and sea on a clear day. Swimming is excellent, either from local beaches, where a minimal charge is made for use of sun-beds and umbrella, or from deserted beaches further afield in clear waters rarely seen in the Mediterranean.
The climate consists of long hot summers and short mild sunny winters, boasting 340 days of sunshine with the lowest sea temperature rarely below 63 degrees F. This attractive holiday resort boasts many historic sites worth visiting. Among these the horse shoe Harbour, Castle and the Shipwreck Museum, The St. Hilarion Castle, The Bellapais Abbey, the Folk Art and the Icon Museum are the most important places to visit.
There is another fantastic experience, the Turtles in Northern Cyprus! turtles nest in some forty nesting beaches around Northern Cyprus. All are welcome to participate in this event as well to witness up to a hundred of these amazing little creatures hatching at one time.
The Alsancak area
Is a great location, close to all amenities. The village has something to offer everyone with its spectacular views, authentic village atmosphere and easy access to the beaches and restaurants & bars. There are a couple of well-stocked mini markets for all your supplies, plus a large supermarket a few minutes walk away. Close by is Riverside Village, a holiday complex with a large pool with slides for children, tennis courts, bars and restaurants and a casino if your feeling lucky. A new water park has recently opened nearby, about 5 minutes in the car. The Escape 2 is approximately 6 miles west of Kyrenia / Girne with its pretty old harbour and magnificent castle. The harbour is stunning, with plenty of restaurants and bars and looks magical of a night when lit up.

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Cyprus and could not have asked for a better villa to spend it in. This was our second visit to the Escape 2 and as before we were not disappointed. Its a beautiful villa with everything you need, the gardens are lovely and the pool is great, it had alot of use during our stay as the weather was very hot! One of the things we love about the villa is its secluded position, you are not overlooked at all and it is very private. Plenty of places to eat within walking distance which was perfect for us as we did not hire a car and the local buses are very cheap and frequent. Had a great day in Kyrenia, the Marina has some fantastic restaurants and we were lucky enough to visit on Independance Day so were treated to an amazing Air Show. Many thanks for letting us stay in your lovely villa, first visit was for 1 week, second visit for 2 weeks be nice to stay for 3 next time!
Kathryn Danny & Family

This was our second holiday at The Escape 2 and was every bit as enjoyable as the first. The villa is great - a real home from home. Comfortable and spacious with everything we needed. The gardens are well establised and provide ample seclusion. The pool was a welcome break in the hot weather. The management team, Jo and Les were very helpful as was Kamal who tends the garden.
The local supermarket is well stocked and provides everything you need. There are plenty of excellent restaurants to choose from in the Kyrenia area - our favourites being Ambience ( a bit more expensive but well worth it) and Charcos in Lapta. But there are many more to choose from.
The new road into Kyrenia makes it easily accessible for a stroll round the shops and harbour which is a beautiful setting in the evening. We would also recommend a visit to Bellapais.
Although we have stayed here twice, we would have no hesitation in returning.
Hi Ann & Paul so glad you enjoyed your second stay at The Escape 2, and thank you for taking the time to post your lovely comments, and look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Mark & Shirley
