An Failte Evi (The Welcome Home)

Villa -
3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Esentepe, Kyrenia District
This luxurious villa is in an idyllic location and has great facilities. Take in the stunning views as you drive up the winding road to the gate and park your car in the grounds. Then you notice the fountain on your left and all around you the mature garden with its fruit trees, flowers and herbs. You go up the steps to the front verandah and enter the house.

You are now in the hall and are struck by its marble floors and high ceilings and overall spaciousness. You can see the main sitting area on your left, the stairs ahead (leading to three bedooms, two bathrooms and three balconies), the downstairs bathroom and the kitchen/garden room area on your right. The main living area is large and gives on to the front downstairs balcony with its views of the sea. You have both a sitting area and a dining area for 8 people and there is an op...

We stayed in this large beautiful peaceful villa for two weeks and enjoyed every minute. Clean, spacious, air conditioned and very well managed property. The owners and couple who oversee the villa out there couldn't be more friendly and helpful. Great large pool for cooling...More

We arrived late in the evening on 25th September and found everything in immaculate order. The villa was spotlessly clean throughout and had every imaginable convenience - the kitchen was particularly well equipped. Throughout our stay, I don't believe there was a single occasion when...More

About the neighbourhood
superior international food and friendly Turkish service just a short walk away and it has its own beach. The villa is also only a short walk to the popular restaurant (for mainly British food) and the supermarket (with Esentepe beach behind it). If you're feeling energetic, the village shops and restaurants are a short uphill walk of 15 minutes.

Or take the car and be in a fine local restaurant in a flash where you will be ready to spend the night eating delicious local fare and making new friends. But which restaurant will you prefer? Remzi's for its family atmosphere, Tumba's for its large terrace or Agurus Evi for its Turkish food? And there others to try such as Esentepe restaurant for its incredibly low-priced Turkish pizzas or Zirdelli for its night life. Let us k...

Any North Cyprus taxi (we use Esentepe Taxis for both taxis and car hire) will pick you up at any airport and leave you at the Villa.
We can arrange both your taxis and car hire for you at the rates the company gives us.
You can get a deal if you ask well in advance or if you are travelling outside high season. Some have hired a car directly from Paphos or Larnaca but there can be insurance or accident concerns here. North Cyprus will give you plenty to do and see o...
