Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Jasmine Villa is a new, well equipped, and suitably furnished 4-bedroom airconditioned property with its own private pool set in an excellent location in North Cyprus with almost uninterrupted panoramic views of the sea and the breathtaking Besparmak mountain range. The villa is spacious and light and airy. It's located in a small select development at the foot of the hill leading to Esentepe village, about 200m from the sea, and set in a spacious walled and gated garden containing a variety of Mediterranean plants. Ravines on either side ensure that the villa enjoys much privacy. The walls and railings around the property perimeter provide security for children.
The villa will sleep up to 8 adults and two babies/toddlers. It's both baby friendly and toddler friendly, being specifically equipped to cater for young children with a high level of baby/toddler equipment available to minimise what parents need to take on holiday. The villa would be equally attractive for adult-only visitors as the children's equipment is unobtrusive. Unlike so many other properties, all bedrooms at Jasmine Villa have blackout blinds/curtains to facilitate a good night's sleep. The aircon units provide warm air on winter evenings if required.
There are excellent facilities nearby including good restaurants, supermarkets, bank, and a petrol station, with the Korineum Golf and Country Club being 5 minutes drive away. For keen anglers, the seashore is only 200 metres from the villa. There are some superb sandy beaches 9-12 minutes drive away. The nearest restaurant is 2 minutes' drive.

The Kyrenia District
The Kyrenia region of Northern Cyprus is one of the most beautiful parts of the island and, indeed, the Mediterranean.
Kyrenia itself is not only an interesting town with much history but, in our opinion, contains one of the most beautiful harbours in the Mediterranean. To enjoy a midday drink or evening meal at one of the many bars or restaurants lining the harbour is an unforgettable experience. The town's original 9th century Byzantine castle with later Luisignan and Venetian additions provides wonderful views of the pretty harbour. It also houses the Shipwreck Museum containing the remains of a 4th century BC ship and its cargo. Kyrenia also has many shops that are attractive to visitors.
The Besparmak mountain range provides a spectacular backcloth to the beaches and foothills. Many attractive villages nestle in these foothills such as Bellapais, Karaman and Esentepe. Bellapais contains a 14th century abbey which has spectacular views over land and sea and is set in a most peaceful location. The writer of "Bitter Lemons", Laurence Durrell, lived a short walk away in the village.
The Besparmak range contains three mountain castles, one of them – St Hilarion – said to be the inspiration for Walt Disney's “Magic Kingdom” castle. The pine forests across the range provide walking trails throughout the year and shaded picnic areas in the summer months.
The region also enjoys some superb sandy beaches with excellent facilities, especially to the east of Kyrenia, with safe shallow bathing in warm waters. Some of these beaches (e.g. Alagadi) are the breeding grounds of the green and loggerhead sea turtles. The sea around the coastline also provides some excellent scuba diving opportunities
Nightlife centres largely around the bars and restaurants in Kyrenia harbour and hotels to the east and west of the town. Within the town and along the northern coast are also a number of nightclubs and casinos. Waterparks, paintballing and go-kart racing are available for younger visitors and the young at heart.
The Kyrenia area is also situated in an excellent location to explore the rest of Northern Cyprus including the Karpas peninsula (with its wild donkeys and deserted beaches), Famagusta, Nicosia, and the southern area around Guzelyurt.
The Esentepe area is located about 20-25 minutes drive from Kyrenia - to its east. Esentepe village (previously known as Ayios Amvrosios or St Ambrose) and its immediate surrounding area is an attractive unspoilt rural location with outstanding views overlooking the sea and towards Five Finger Mountain (Besparmak). The village has several restaurants/bars, mini-markets, a butcher, internet cafe, small post office, two banks (1 with ATM), two hairdressers, medical centre, police station, and a football stadium. There are also 2 medium sized supermarkets within 2-3 minutes drive from the villa that stock baby foods and nappies, etc. and a small selection diabetic and gluten-free foods. There is a petrol station 300 metres from the villa with an ATM and a chemist 3 minutes' drive away. The are numerous restaurants and bars within 2-10 minutes' drive.
Some superb beaches, such as Turtle (Alagadi) and Nature Bay are situated just a short drive away. The mountain range, immediately behind the village, provides excellent walking trails through the pine trees throughout the year. Fishing and diving are also undertaken off the coast.
Golf enthusiasts can enjoy the beautiful and lush 18-hole championship course at the Korinium Golf and Country Club close to Esentepe. Visitors can play either the complete 18-hole course, or just 9 holes, or the driving range. A golf shop and tuition are also available. The Club also provides spa and various massage & body treatment services, the latter including facial and nail care.
This is a quiet area and nightlife is limited to the bars and restaurants where there is occasional entertainment. However, the Acapulco Resort is situated approx 15 minutes drive to the west toward Kyrenia. For a reasonable daily fee, visitors can enjoy the private sandy beach, extensive heated pools and water slides for children and adults, casino, and other facilities. Additionally, the Resort contains probably the most luxurious spa and wellness centre in Northern Cyprus.
For those interested in horse riding, just 15 minutes drive away from the villa is the Çatalköy Riding Club, who undertake trail, mountain and pub rides.
For cycling enthusiasts, the villa is ideally situated as you can join the waymarked 230km Kyrenia Mountain Trail, just above Esentepe village, and cycle through the beautiful pine forests (best time Oct - April). Alternatively, cycle along the old coastal road east of Esentepe toward the Karpas peninsular where the traffic is extremely light. Bikes can be hired in Kyrenia.
