“Stunning Country. Fabulous Villa with everything we needed to make this an amazing holiday.”
Reviewed July 9, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We spent 3 Amazing weeks at Villa Carretta and were very sad to leave to come home. The photographs although good do not do justice to this lovely, restful home from home. The drive over the ravine to the villa delighted us each time we drove that way...the villa was a little further of the main road than we initially expected but this came to be an advantage as we settled and relaxed into the slower pace of life. The local restaurants especially Stone Castle and Remzi's were family run and we got to know many of them. Other restaurants were worth visiting and the food excellent.
The pool was AMAZING!! the breeze on the terrace cooling. The best beach we found was Alagadi 2 quieter with no facilities but extremely safe for little ones and a short drive away. We saw turtles egg laying with The Turtle Project a wonderful experience for us and our 4 year old grand daughter. Lots of well stocked supermarkets locally.
Prior to travel we had been a little concerned about crossing the 'green line' and car hire / airport pick up etc as we had heard about the difficulties in doing this...but we never had a problem in fact we didn't even have to leave the taxi at the border! the very friendly taxi drivers took care of it all for us and our passports were not stamped for those of you who may be concerned about this. The car hire company from the North organised the taxi for us. It was much easier than we expected reminding us to ignore the horror stories!
We visited the Karpez Penninsula, saw wild donkeys, walked up to ruined castles high in the
mountains, visited historical sites and stunning beaches and shopped (incredibly in expensively) in Nicosia and Kyrenia and the best part ... rested by the pool. Ate good food, enjoyed the local Efes beer and wine . In fact it was just perfect!
We love this unspoilt part of the world and the only advice we would give is go now before it all changes. We felt very safe and at no time had any problems. The Turkish Cypriots were friendly and welcoming.
Tracey was more than helpful and was always contactable to answer any minor queries when we first arrived.
We will absolutely return!
Thank you Tracey!

“A fantastic house with all the facilities”
Reviewed March 6, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

I stayed together with 5 teenagers and 2 more adults in this really nice and ample house with great views of the Mediterranean sea. The house was really clean and the owner was most attentive and everything worked as it should.
