The Kyrenia region
Northern Cyprus has a typical eastern Mediterranean climate - long hot dry summers from mid May to mid October and short mild winters from December to February. It enjoys approximately 340 days of sunshine and a sea temperature rarely below 63 deg F.
Kyrenia is steeped in history, it dates back to the Trojan war when settlers arrived from Achaea and established towns in the area. With many ancient archaelogical sites in the area you will find yourself surrounded by a rich tapestry of history and culture.
With Turkish, Greek and Lebanese neighbours you will find the cuisine rich, varied and reasonably priced.
Cyprus is a haven for nature lovers with millions of birds making it their home every year. You will find yourself surrounded by beauty and fragrance with skyscraping mountains and verdent plains to explore.
The coastline of Northern Cyprus is generally quite rugged but has many secluded and sandy beaches that are not crowded even in the summer months. Turtle beach is unique in that around the end of June, beginning of July, the turtles come to lay their eggs. The eggs hatch in late August to early September and volunteers are welcomed to help guard the nests or to watch the newly hatched baby turtles struggle down to the water’s edge.
Northern Cyprus has many historic and heritage sites. You can you wander around the temples, amphitheatres and also admire the mosaics of Salamis, the most romantic ruined city left by the Romans. There is also the fairytale Castle of St Hilarion which commands an imposing position above the bay of Kyrenia, inspiring Disney for the castle in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Golf players can test their skills on a new championship standard course at the nearby GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB. There is also a Driving Range & Academy with three full-length practice holes. Day passes will be available for visitors.
The ideal climate, the natural beauty of the island, the warmth and generosity of the Turkish Cypriot people make Northern Cyprus an ideal holiday destination. There is none of the pestering of holiday makers that is so common now in other Mediterranean resorts.
The beaches offer excellent facilities in terms of eating and drinking and the provision of beach umbrellas and loungers. Many of the Hotel complex beaches also offer activities such as water skiing, banana rides, jetski, wind surfing and scuba diving. Fishing trips can also be arranged with boat owners in the old Kyrenia Harbour.
Birdwatching is a popular pastime with approximately 347 types of birds to discover.

"Even better than last year"
I've never been one to return to the same place regularly but might make an exception for Loxley House. Once again our trip to N Cyprus made for excellent value and quality family time. The prope… More

"Beyond Our Expectations..................."
This was our first visit to Northern Cyprus and consider ourselves very fortunate to have chosen Loxley House as the venue for our summer holiday. The villa was gorgeous and Northern Cyprus is a super place to unwind from the hustle and bustle of our home lives ! We found all we could have wished for in the Villa to make our stay comfortable and pleasurable. It is very well fitted with all mod - cons, is fully air-conditioned and has an amazing swimming pool, great for both us and the kids!, crystal clear water, warmed by the summer sun, also illuminated for our many evening dips! There is also a purpose built BBQ on the patio around the pool if you fancy eating in, which we did on several nights.
One of the best aspects to the Villa is its superb location. Situated in a quiet part of the village of Catalkoy, the Villa is extremely private, situated on a no-through access road with olive trees on one side and a lemon grove on another. The gardens were beautiful with a real splash of mediterranean colour !
So.....to summarise our first experience of Northern Cyprus..................it's a real Gem ! Located out of the Euro Zone it represents superb value for money. It's not commercialised like many holiday destinations we have visited over the years but has everything you need from shops, beaches, fabulous restaurants and beautiful mountain walks. We experienced many of the local eateries, had some fantastic meze's and ate out at a couple of fine dining restaurants where the best of European food can be found at a fraction of the cost back home.
Public transport and Taxis are readily available but we would recommend hiring a car to maximise flexibility so you can visit some of the fantastic attractions nearby, the owners can help with organising car-hire and taxis to and from Larnaca Airport as we did.
All in all this was a Fantastic Holiday ! We would thoroughly recommend Loxley House, you won't be disappointed ! We're already making plans to return next year........!!!

"Everything here for a comfortable family base in N. Cyprus"
Northern Cyprus isn't for everyone. It neither boasts the familiar glitz and familiar brands of other resorts nor the untouched beauty and isolation of places in far-flung Mediterranean islands. … More
