This makes it much more comfortable and relaxing when you spend days at the villa and make use of the pool.

The Kyrenia region
The seaport of Girne/Kyrenia is situated on the north coast of Cyprus and is the location of many historical events and unique remains of countless civilisations dating back 6000 years. The beautiful harbour is dominated by a majestic castle, which is first referred to by ancient sources in the year 1191 A.D, when the English King Richard The Lion Heart defeated lsaac Comnenus on his way to the Crusades and conquered Cyprus. The Museum houses the oldest trading ship known (The Mediterranean), which is believed to have been sunk in the year 300 BC.
Bounded to the north by the Mediterraneansea and to the south by the Besparmak Mountain range, it offers the benefits of both sea and mountain air, and is thus an ideal resort for health and relaxation. Along it's northern shoreline there are miles of natural beaches, calm seas and a mild climate. It experiences over 300 days of sunshine and is the perfect holiday resort.
Kayalar is a very small village on the approaches to the North West peninsular. It is a very quiet secluded area with access to several small coves and beaches including Horseshoe Bay (just 1.5Km from the villa), where there is a small fish beach bar/restaurant. The route to Kayalar is via a beautiful scenic drive along the coast from the main Girne/Kyrenia road (5 Km). Close to the Kayalar turn off is the Club Güzelyali beach bar, where you can spend time on the beach and be served delicious freshly cooked food by Mehmet Cuma (the owner).
A car is essential and the position of Kayalar makes it very simple to explore the rest of the island without having to navigate through the town of Girne/Kyrenia. Trips to The Karpas peninsula, Famagusta, Nicosia/Lefkosia, Vouni Palace, Guzelyurt/Morphou are very easy to make.
Just 13Km due East on the main coastal road will bring you to Lapta sea front, where there is access to water activities including diving.
Other activities available nearby are horse-riding, walking, mountain biking, go-karting, paint balling, trampolining, tennis, clay pigeon shooting, sea fishing and para gliding. Gulet cruises are also available and several excellent gulets set sale from Girne/Kyrenia.
The journey East towards Girne/Kyrenia will take you through several villages such as Karsiyaka, Lapta, Alsancak and Karaoglanoglu where there are numerous fine places to dine on the fabulous fresh and natural Cyprus/Turkish cuisine. All these villages can be seen from the main Girne/Guzelyurt road where they are nestled on the slopes of the Bespamark mountain range.
You can visit many ruins of past abbeys, churches and monastries. Bellapais Abbey (built in the 12th century), has beautiful gothic architecture and is located 10 minutes drive north of Girne/Kyrenia. It is close to here where Lawrence Durrell wrote "Bitter Lemons of Cyrpus". This gives an insight into life on the island in the 1950's and later after the Turkish intervention in 1974.
The Salamis Ruins (near Famagusta) is an excellent day trip. Be sure to have lunch in Bedis Bar/Restaurant at the entrance.
Saint Hilarion Castle (10th century) is another interesting excursion where there are breathtaking views of the Girne/Kyrenia & the northern cyprus shoreline and villages below. When you leave the castle, instead of driving back through Girne/Kyrenia turn right and head west along the top of the Bespamark mountain range, where you will arrive back at the village of Karsiyaka. It is a lovely drive.
You will find Byzantine, Ottoman, Roman, French, British, Greek and other influences on the island have enhanced it's fascinating past.
