“A Great Stay!” We came as two families with 4 kids for a fantastic holiday!
The house is really spacey, with either terrasses or balconys at almost every room.
On two floors we really hat enough space to have a comfortable holiday with 8 persons!
It was very clean, modern and lovely decorated.
The poolterrasse was the hit! With a 360° panorama-ocean-view, it was like paradise besides the very well looked after garden.
Also having the pool on it´s own level, the kids could play there, but still during the midtime, the bedrooms were quiet.
Also the extrabathroom on the poollevel next to the pool was very practical.
We really enjoyed taking the meals, or having a wine on the terrasse with that amazing view.
Also we want to compliment on the communication with the owner Tecelli. He was a very polite contact partner, as a local with great tips for our stay and all sorts of activities.
Many beaches were quite near, kyrenia a lovely harbourcity was very close.
We will definitely come back and can totally recommend the house!
“Perfectly located holiday villa” We loved our stay at Villa Ravine. We found the property to be well equipped, tastefully decorated and furnished, spacious and more importantly so conveniently located, which allowed us to visit most of the attractions of North Cyprus. The villa is within 5 min walk from excellent restaurants and cafes, Bellapais Abbey and several quaint little shops. In the evening we loved sitting on the front terrace watching over the ravine towards Girne and the sea. The swimming pool was cleaned twice a week and it provided a very enjoyable way to cool down after the heat of the day. What we loved the most was the convenience of it all and the stress free booking process. The owners of the villa were very helpful and answered all our questions during the booking process and they arranged for us to be picked up from Larnaca Airport and dropped off at the property. They advised us about renting a car too. The car was dropped off to the property and then picked up from there. The property does not have its own parking space but the Abbey’s car park is within 2min walk and provided a safe and convenient place to park. No issues or worries at all! We really hope we could go back soon and we definitely recommend Villa Ravine and Bellapais.
A Beautiful Cottage With Private Pool And Wonderful Views
A BLISSFUL GEM
This has been my third visit to Mary’s villa in the stunning village of Bellapais. That should tell you how much I love it. Mary makes things very easy for you, she is communicative, generous with her time, organised and kind.
A rustic haven in walking distance of everything Bellapais has to offer. Inside you will find a warm, light sitting room with flagstone floors and original features to appreciate. The kitchen is plentiful with American style fridge/freezer, table, and chairs, cooker with hobs, with an array of useful spices, pasta, and sauces. The bathroom has a shower over bath, in case you fancy warming your cockles. Th bedroom has a comfortable bed with TV (which this year I noticed was set up perfectly with HDMI cable ready for laptop or other devices). There is an air conditioning unit in the bedroom plus a sofa bed which is perfect for any additional guests you might have for a night or two.
Outside there is a superb area for the “afternoon cool down” covered with comfortable cushions and an outbuilding housing the washing machine.
Up some stairs, you will find the pool which, and trust me, is a life saver. The sun at its highest reached 35 plus on some days and the beads of sweat dripped teasingly from my nose, the pool was a safe haven to cool down. My partner swam lengths daily whilst I splashed and bobbed around on a noodle! There are a couple of sunbeds here too with a generous umbrella should you require shade.
Up some more steps is the roof terrace, and enviable place, where the sun floods the space and you are afforded epic and outstanding views over Kyrenia and Bellapais Abbey. The sunset each night will make you want to never leave. There are plenty of areas to sit and chill, eat and drink and basically enjoy every direction of this beautiful place.
I don’t drive on holiday but there are areas to park, just be REALLY good at parking as these streets are not for nervous drivers.
Cannot recommend enough and already booked my next one!
Quite literally a stunning place to be, occupied by windy little ambling streets, with so much charm it will knock your socks off.
There are a number of restaurants in walking distance, they are all excellent, so do go to them ALL
Bella Moon – Ran by a small family the food is stunning and fresh, and they are the sweetest people.
Kybele – The food is nice, I recommend booking as soon as you get there and asking for the Balcony, you will not regret it.
The Bellapais Garden restaurant has the best service and food in the area in a romantic setting,
Tree of Idleness, perfect for the cheaper end but go upstairs and check out the views!
The Abbey itself is an architectural delight. There is a superb new wine bar at the top of the Garden restaurant entrance, go there and have some cocktails. The village shop is well stocked and so cheap, the people work there every day, all day, so please give them business they are a delight.
Transfers were easy and this again was something Mary helped with and I literally cannot wait to return.
Oh, and ATM now in the village which has now made it a perfect place to go. Taxis in the square as well take you anywhere and life is surely better with a gin and tonic in your hand at Mary’s idyllic cottage. …
Amazing Views on top of the hill
Great location for nearby Bellapais village and monastery. Lots of great places to eat and enjoy the views. …
Peaceful and charming villa
Beautiful villa with fantastic pool and lovely atmosphere. Great views from the balcony and the pool. Bellapais is a beautiful village and friendly people in North Cyprus, we will come back. Special thanks to Colin who was happy to answer all our queries and a lovely welcome pack which was very much appreciated as we got there late at night! Sharon also very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for her. Kids loved chilling in the villa and enjoyed the pool too. The only thing we struggled with was finding our way around the village from the villa but 1 week later things got easier! …
Villa Ravine, Bellapais
The only holiday rental we have ever visited more than once!
We have just enjoyed a wonderful relaxing week at Villa Ravine. The owners Rodney and Jo ensure that all needs are catered for, lifts to and from the airport arranged, a welcome pack, advice about anything you might need - they cannot be more helpful. The villa is perfect as a base to see the beautiful sights nearby or just to completely chill out by the pool or the beautiful terraces. It has recently been updated and has everything you need. We love it because it is old but the rooms are large and bright. This is our second visit and we hope not our last. Thanks very much Rodney and Jo. …
Peace and quiet in a lovely location.
We booked this accommodation for a little more independence, having stayed close by in hotel accommodation last year. We were not disappointed in our choice. "Falcon's Crest" comprises 4 mini-villas on a secure site, each with a slightly different aspect. We occupied "Aqua" which had a fabulous outlook over the valley to the sea beyond. The sun was directly on our terrace as it came up each morning. We appreciated the "laid back" attitude of the owner, so that after an initial introduction we were left to enjoy the total peace of this location. The villas were not serviced during our stay, but there was a comprehensive utility room with washing machine, all spare linen etc.
All 'mod cons' were available inside the villa, including flat-screen TV with over 100 channels (though most of these were in Arabic, and a package with more English-speaking channels would suit the largely British guests who stay here).We particularly liked the large bath and beach towels (Louis Vuitton, no less!), the free WI-Fi and the very generous "Welcome Package".
The owners two cats and dog became real friends during our stay, but it is fair to point out that if you were not a cat lover you might find their behaviour intrusive. All in all we had a most enjoyable stay, and would not hesitate to return, or to recommend this accommodation to others. …
