Your rental villa in Edremit offer the best blend of mountain and beach holiday, being just 1 mile from the coast road, yet high enough in the Five Finger Mountains to benefit from cool breezes and wonderful views. Edremit is a small village halfway up the road to Karmi, and a lovely spot for a relaxing, stress-free villa holiday in North Cyprus.
Imagine the fresh mountain air in Edremit as you wake every morning, then enjoying breakfast on your holiday villa balcony as the sun shines on the coast below. Perhaps you'll wander into the village to buy fresh local produce for your lunch from the small grocery shop, or buy a bottle of local white wine to chill for later. After lunch, you can snooze by your villa pool, or browse the village craft shop opposite the church, which has an impressive stock of traditional basketry-wares. In the evening, pop down to the Hideaway Club hotel for a drink while watching the sun set, before dinner on their rooftop terrace.
For more choice, drive or catch a taxi down the hillside to Karaoglanoglu, where you can shop in the local supermarket, or choose from a series of restaurants along the sea front. Or head up the road to the Treasure restaurant in Karmi, where the shady terrace is just one table wide so everyone can enjoy the fabulous view. The traditional Turkish Cypriot menu includes taze fasulye, a green bean stew with lamb cubes in tomato sauce and molohiya, a rich lamb stew with root vegetables and garlic.
For a family day out by the sea, head for the Escape Beach Club, just a few minutes' drive along the coast road to the east. Here, mums can relax while the children play in the golden sand or paddle in the safe shallow waters. Older kids (including dad) will be eager to swim out to the Escape's own little island, or try out the water sports. There is always a cool drink available at the beach bar, and a light lunch to buy when hunger strikes.
For a relaxing day on a North Cyprus beach, drive your hire car from your holiday villa in Edremit right down onto beach near Altinkaya Fish Restaurant. The gentle sloping golden sands are ideal for younger children, who can paddle in safety. Active types need not feel left out though; the Amphora Scuba Diving school is based here.
