The Villa was built in 1886 and is peaceful and charming. Situated on the mountain
at the top of Bellapais village, looking down over the village, the
beautiful medieval abbey and the sea. Behind the villa are the mountains
where one can walk for hours.
It is a four minute walk down the steep road to the village where there are some small shops and restaurants. The Villa is approached along a mountain road (no horrid drops,) as it is not possible to drive up from the village. Entrance is through a walled garden where there are fruit trees and flowers.
You are welcome to any fruit in season, there are usually lemons on the tree for your drinks.
On the ground floor there are three double bedrooms, one with a double bed, the other two with twin beds. All have windows overlooking the wonderful view.
Upstairs the sitting room has a large open fireplace, there are some board games and guidebooks
and the house book where we invite you to write about your trips and discoveries and comment on the various restaurants. Here's the Tree of Idleness.
The small fitted kitchen is well equipped for 6 people. Both rooms open on to the large sun terrace, 40ftx10ft, from where we have the most breathtaking view of the village the Abbey,
Kyrenia harbour, the sea and the sunsets over the mainland Turkish Mountains which themselves can be seen at times. It is the most perfect place to sit with a drink and a book.
There are various chairs and loungers and a table, plus a Cyprus style barbeque
Due to the height of the sun terrace I don't consider the house suitable for very small children.
The villa is also equipped with a hair drier, radio and tape player. Bedding and towels are provided but we do ask you to take your own beach towels.
Furnishing is Turkish style where possible with kilims and sheepskins on the
