10 Aug 2012
Just returned from an extremely relaxing week long stay at this very spacious, comfortable and private villa. The owners organised our car hire and transfers from Larnaca Airport, which was extremely efficient and comfortable. Pictures do not do the villa or location justice. We visited Kyrenia Harbour and St Hilarian Castle, both stunning. Also spent a day at nearby Shaynar Beach Club, but always found ourselves opting to chill by the lovely villa pool. A very relaxing, chilled and hassle free holiday, lovely climate and Turkish Cypriots charming and hospitable.
