The Kyrenia region
The Northern coastline, which borders the Besparmak Mountains, is reputed to be one of the most beautiful areas in the Mediterranean and the Harbour of Kyrenia simply adds to the beauty surrounding you - there is also a castle to explore - it is as if time stood still when you wander along the cobbled streets or take in a beverage at the many Harbour side Cafes and Restaurants - you will find the people so friendly. Northern Cyprus with its beauty, great restaurants, friendly people and superb climate make a great recipe for a relaxing, non-commercialised holiday - it is as if time stood still.
There are lots of places to visit - St. Hilarion Castle at the top of a mountain peak is approx 20 mins by car - this Castle is lit up at night and makes quite a spectacle. in the darkness of the mountains.
You could also take a drive to the Karpaz Penninsula (Pan Handle) in the North, now a protected Nature Reserve - here you will see wild Donkeys (Cyprus' oldest inhabitants) and the Sea is a fabulous Turquoise plus miles of White Sandy Beaches - totally unspoilt - quite amazing, it is as if time stood still as nothing has changed in this region for approximately 30 years. You can visit in July or August and not see a person - you can have the whole beach to yourselves!!! There are many species of birds, wild flowers (including orchids). There are also nesting grounds for 2 endangered species of Sea Turtle in the Karpaz, and depending on the time of year you make your visit, it can be possible to see the turtles come to lay their eggs and the babies trying to make it to the sea when they hatch.
In this region there are ruins and even dungeons (Famagusta) to visit and explore. The ruins of Salamis would also be a great place to visit - there arew so many ruins to visit - the whole Island is steeped in history
Bellapais Abbey is another great place to visit - the views and the abbey - the local restaurants will provide a taxi from the Villa to the restaurant and return you - free of charge - and no, the taxi price is not reflected in the price of the meals - the price is similar to all other restaurants and to see the Abbey by night is a treat (see picture)
You can cross the border into Southern Cyprus at the Nicosia crossing which is approximately 30 minutes, or alternatively drive to Famagusta (approximately 1.5 hours) and cross over to the South Eastern corner of Southern Cyprus - it should be pointed out if hiring a car in Northern Cyprus you will not be allowed to take the car to Southern Cyprus, but if you were to hire a car in the South when you arrive at Larnaca Airport, it is possible to drive to the South in the Hire Car from the North. However with so much to see in the North - the South should be a separate holiday!!!
The villa is set back from the Coast Road amongst the Citrus Groves on the outskirts of Lapta.
The village of Lapta is a short walk away - there are shops, restaurants and a supermarket.
There is also a beautiful Monastery - Ayia Anastasia Monastery - see the picture.
There are also several beaches within walking distance. For the more adventurous there are the Sunset Beach Water Sports facilities just across the Coast Road.
Lapta is next to the Village of Alsancak and both have wonderful restaurants - International Cuisine at its finest whether your taste is Indian, Chinese, Italian, French or typical Cypriot - you will be spoilt for choice . You will find the restaurants very inexpensive and very friendly - normally offering a free coffee and brandy after your meal.
If all this is not enough - then there are the many Casinos (no Membership is necessary) - the Casinos will feed you and supply free drinks of your choice whilst you play - the Slots, Black Jack, Roulette, Poker and other Card Games.
Lapta has spectacular scenery, cooling sea and mountain breezes in the hot summer months, and a constant supply of mains water. The area is ideal for those who like the beach and water sports or poolside holidays, as well as for those who like to walk and explore the spectacular mountain scenery and ruins, etc.
Cyprus is also renown for Scuba diving - there are many schools and diving clubs available locally.
You can be daring and take in some Paragliding from the mountain top or simply hang in there from the back of a boat!!!! Hire a Jetski or Jetbike - it is all here for you to enjoy with uncrowded beaches to enjoy as well.
( Lapta ) Lapethos, thought to be the capital of an ancient kingdom, was constructed where today's Lapta is. The first inhabitants of Lambusa are thought to have moved there in 13th Century BC. The city was conquered by the Phoenicians in the 8th Century BC, but its most glorious times were during the Roman and Byzantine Periods. Some of the precious antiquities found in Lambusa are being displayed at the Nicosia Museum, but the rest are in the British Museum in New York, and in the Dumbarton oaks Collection in Washington DC.
