Description

Soak up the sun in a quiet yet central location in the village of Catalkoy.

Having fallen in love with Northern Cyprus over 30 years ago we bought the house in 2008.

Situated in the village of Catalkoy which is just 10 minutes from Kyrenia, a beautiful old harbor flanked by a castle where you can eat at one of the many restaurants offering a range of fish, seafood and traditional Turkish dishes.

There are 3 supermarkets within 10 minutes walk of the house, plus a village shop just a couple of minutes away.

When it comes to eating out, a ten minute stroll will take you to several bars and restaurants. from a traditional Turkish restaurant offering fresh fish, a Turkish Meze restaurant (Meze is a selection of hot and cold starters), an Italian and one of the best Indian restaurants I have ever been to, plus 2 bars that have live music once a week.

There are several beaches within walking distance (approx. 20 to 30 minutes walk) but to enjoy your stay we would

There are several beaches within walking distance (approx. 20 to 30 minutes walk) but to enjoy your stay we would recommend a car to fully appreciate the the island and to visit the sights.

We are happy to arrange car hire for you and you will be met at the airport and taken to the Villa, hire rates are between £18 and £20 per day and save the cost of a taxi to and from the airport. (appox £25 each way)

All the cars are right hand drive so it's just like driving at home and you will be free to explore the Turtle Breeding Beaches to the east of Catalkoy and the ruins of Salamis near the old walled city of Nicosia, Belapais Abbey, the Tree of Idleness and the many beautiful secluded sandy bays and traditional restaurants along the coast.

Location description from owner

The Kyrenia District


A holiday in Kyrenia will never be boring, there are so many things to see and do that you will find yourself busy every day if you choose. Among the most popular tourist attractions are, Kyrenia Castle, Old Harbour, The Shipwreck Museum, and St. Hilarion Castle.

Kyrenia Castle has been standing since the 7th Century and many believe it was built to protect the town against raids from the Arab lands. Throughout the centuries, Kyrenia Castle has undergone many restorations especially during the Lusignan period. Built during an era of knights and archery the castle was designed with this in mind. During reconstruction in 1489 the castle was remodelled to co-inside with the artillery era. Two towers were also added but in 1570 the castle was once again under seige and taken over by the Ottomans. Like any castle built for protection, Kyrenia castle is entered via a bridge built over a moat which was until the 1400's filled with water.

Inside Kyrenia castle you will find a Byzantian church and the tomb of the Ottoman Admiral, Sadik Pasha. There are also the towers, dungeons, an arsenal, a cannon parapet, and the shipwreck museum. Visiting Kyrenia castle really is an excellent day out for all the family. photo

The Old harbour in Kyrenia is an enjoyable and relaxing day out. Strolling along the harbour with its calm seas you can take in the amazing views and see the colorful fishing boats and yacths that dock here. Kyrenia harbour is also framed by Kyrenia Castle and as the sun sets on this sleepy harbour you will be amazed by the buzz and excitement that develops as the restaurants and taverns come alive. photo

For those looking to explore the ancient old world, Kyrenia harbour offers it all. Lined with restaurants and cafes, strolling along the harbour is a great way to spend a relaxing day.

The Shipwreck Museum located inside Kyrenia Castle is the oldest ship that has been recovered from the sea. It is said to belong to the hellenistic period and tests have shown that parts of this ship acutally date back to 288 B.C. This ship is 15 meters in lenght and is constructed from Jerusalem pine. Found on the wreck were approximately 400 amphoras and 29 bosalt mill stones which may indicate that this ship carried out its buisness on the Mediterranean and Aegean coasts. Almond remains that were also discovered lead us to believe that these were the main food supply for the crew of the ship. This ship is an amazing discovery and one well worth visiting. photo

St. Hilarion Castle was built to defent Cyprus from raiding Arabs and was named after Saint Hilarion. In the 10th Century a church and monastery were built in this area but the first mentions of the castle were found in 1191. Although extremely important in its time, St. Hilarion Castle later became a summer retreat for the Lusignan nobility.On visiting St. Hilarion Castle there really is so much to see, from the royal kitchen, to the church and the Lusignan gate. There is also a courtyard and fantastic views from the Queen's window on the second floor.
