If there were a prize for the prettiest holiday villa location in North Cyprus, Kyrenia would definitely win it! Life in this historic town on the north coast of Cyprus centres around its curving Venetian harbour, where fishing boats bob on the waves, all just a short stroll away on your Kyrenia town villa holiday. The old carob warehouses surrounding this elegant harbour have been tastefully converted into bustling cafes and excellent restaurants, ideal for a leisurely lunch or a romantic dinner under the stars.
A rental villa in Kyrenia gives you the freedom to explore this fascinating old town at your own pace. Away from the harbour, the winding streets invite you to browse the intriguing local shops, or drop into a local bar for a refreshing Efes beer. You can stock your Kyrenia villa fridge with field-fresh produce from the Municipal market, or stock up on unusual souvenirs from the Round Tower gallery, selling local North Cyprus crafts.
There is certainly plenty to see and do on a Kyrenia villa holiday, including discovering the oldest shipwreck in the world at its dedicated museum in Kyrenia Castle, before climbing the castle ramparts for a bird's eye view of the town.
In Kyrenia town, you are always walking through history, wherever your rental villa may be. Under your feet, the limestone rock is cut into ancient catacombs, while every corner reveals a picturesque ruin or converted church, such as the one that houses the glittering Icon Museum.
From your base at your Kyrenia holiday villa, you can explore this fascinating area of North Cyprus with ease. Wander amongst the atmospheric ruins of Bellapais Abbey, with superb views over the coastline back to Kyrenia. Or simply relax on any of the uncrowded beaches within easy reach of Kyrenia town. Escape beach, to the west, is ideal for families, with golden sands and shallow water, and easy driving access. Or experience the popular Acapulco beach to the east, a beach-lovers paradise of golden sands, water sports and a lively atmosphere, before watching baby turtles hatch during the summer breeding season at Alagadi Beach.
