When you first visit Kyrenia on your Northern Cyprus villa holiday, you'll want to get your camera out straight away! Kyrenia is a remarkably pretty town, with a historic centre that just cries out to have its photo taken again and again.
Life in the old town in Kyrenia centres around the beautiful harbour, an elegant crescent built by the Venetians during their occupation of Cyprus in the fifteen century. Today, the harbour still bobs with fishing boats, and you'll be tempted to enjoy lunch at one of the harbourside restaurants, where the fish is fresh and the menu a welcome break from home cooking back at your North Cyprus holiday villa! In the evening, as the sun sets over the harbour, romantic couples take to the rooftops of these excellent Kyrenia harbourside restaurants to watch the sun set and dine under the stars.
If you really want to see the best of Kyrenia, take a boat tour from the harbour. You'll sail out past the impressive Kyrenia castle, originally built to repel Arab raiders. Then, out to sea, over the site of a defensive chain that originally stopped unwanted visitors entering the harbour undetected. As you look back at Kyrenia town, you'll see the winding streets rising back from the water’s edge, full of interesting shops to visit at the end of your boat trip along the North Cyprus coast.
One of the great advantages of taking a villa to rent in North Cyprus is being able to shop for whatever you like - and having somewhere to put it! Fill up your holiday villa fridge with fresh fruit and vegetables purchased from the Municipal Market, or discover unique souvenirs at the Round Tower Gallery, a former defense tower in the town walls.
One of the great advantages of a Kyrenia villa holiday is that the harbour, its restaurants, bars and shops are just a short walk away. Amy Villas offers you central Kyrenia holiday villas for rental at very affordable prices.
