The swimming pool is 11m x 6m and surrounded by large terraces. Much bigger than most villa pools. The views from the pool and gardens are breathtaking. If you like walking, trails begin from the back garden and go through the Besparmak mountains.
There are delightful gardens surrounding the property planted with bougainvillea, jasmine, almond, jacaranda, orange and lemon trees. There is even a wonderful grapevine which is scrambling over the terrace roof. Beyond the garden borders the hillsides are green with olive trees, firs, wild thyme and almond trees, all adding to the fantastic views. Our gardens literally blend into the wild mountainsides. Villa Rockheart and its gardens are extremely private and you will not be overlooked by anybody whilst enjoying the pool and terraces.
There is covered parking for two cars.
Golf is 30 minutes away. Scuba diving 10 minutes. Horseriding 30 minutes.
The Kyrenia region
Northern Cyprus is still an unspoilt delight compared to most of the Mediterranean. The northern coastal plain around Kyrenia has many sandy coves. The Eastern shore around Famagusta and also the Karpas Peninsula has long empty sandy beaches. Kyrenia with its tiny ancient harbour is incredibly picturesque and has a wonderful atmosphere at night when it really comes to life.
Summers are long in Cyprus and it seldom falls below 14C in winter. Christmas lunch on the terrace is quite normal.
There are many sightseeing opportunities from crusader castles, to ruined abbeys, shopping in Kyrenia, wildlife viewing in the Karpas, horse riding, walking in the wonderful mountains, wild flowers and butterflies.
It is very reasonable to eat out and you will find hundreds of restaurants with differing cuisines to choose from.
Set high above the bustle of the coastal plain, Ilgaz is a tiny dream of a Cypriot village, a centre for walking the Besparmak (Five Finger) Mountains. On the mountainside just below the village, Villa Rockheart is perched over a green valley with spectacular and uninterrupted views running down to the sea, only five minutes drive away, and up into the mountains behind.
There is a restaurant/bar within a couple of minutes walk or it is 5 minutes drive to a wide choice including Cypriot, Chinese, French, Italian, Australian and Indian.
The nearest beach is about 5 minutes drive but there are a good choice within 10 minutes. Most with full facilities and watersports. Escape Beach is wonderful for families.
Mountain walks begin at the end of the garden and you can walk through the mountains past waterfalls, castles and ruined abbeys and monasteries.
