Choosing your ideal North Cyprus Villa Holiday is easy when you know-how! Here are 7 quick and easy tips for finding your perfect holiday villa in the North Cyprus sunshine.
1. Don’t Book Direct with the Villa Owner!
In the past, you could only find a rental villa in North Cyprus was to book direct with the owner. This involved long hours researching on the web, endless faxes or emails, costly money transfers, and that nagging doubt that your villa may not be quite up to standard … There are companies you can find online that do all the hard work for you, so you can search for North Cyprus rental villas by location, price, availability, or facilities such as swimming pools.
2. Rent By The Day for Flexibility
North Cyprus holiday villas are available to rent by the day, so you can fly to North Cyprus on a day and at a time that suits you and your family. What’s more, you don’t have to return seven days later along with everyone else on a busy and crowded transfer day! Most villas are bookable for a minimum of three days, so you can even create your own North Cyprus two center holiday if you wish. Of course, North Cyprus villa rental by the day means you can take advantage of flying on cheaper days too.
3. Think South for Best Buy Flights to Cyprus
All North Cyprus villas for rent are accessible both from Ercan International Airport in Northern Cyprus and Larnaca airport in south Cyprus. Fly into Ercan airport, and your flight will involve a brief stopover in Turkey, but from Ercan airport, you can collect a hire car and be by your Kyrenia holiday villa pool in under an hour! It’s a shorter flight time into Larnaca airport in south Cyprus, where you can collect a hire car or take a taxi transfer over the border into North Cyprus. The total journey times are about the same, but flights to south Cyprus can be a lot cheaper, even when you include the cost of a taxi transfer.
4. Choose the Best Resort Area
In North Cyprus, you can choose from a holiday villa with fabulous views high in the mountains, or a designer beachside villa where you can hear the waves break on the beach! Kyrenia is the main town on the north coast and makes a great base for a North Cyprus villa holiday.
To the east of Kyrenia, traditional village resorts such as Catalkoy and Ozankoy have easy access to wonderful sandy beaches. Golf fans will love Esentepe, with its new golf course set amongst ancient olive trees. If you prefer breathtaking views, the village of Bellapais offers a truly relaxing villa holiday in North Cyprus that’s hard to beat.
West of Kyrenia, you can feel part of the community at Zeytinlik, yet still, be just 5 minutes’ drive from the beach. Family-friendly Karaoglanoglu is a great place to take the kids, as is the hillside village of Alsancak, with all the facilities you’ll need for a fabulous villa holiday in North Cyprus. If you want peace and relaxation, head for the fragrant olive groves and natural springs at Lapta, or chill out in peaceful Karsiyaka.
5. Get The North Cyprus Villa Space You Want
The great news about North Cyprus villas for rent is that they are usually big! In Northern Cyprus, holiday villas with three or four bedrooms are the norm, so you and the family can have plenty of space to relax. The kids can have their own rooms, and you can take the master suite, which usually is ensuite! Most North Cyprus holiday rental villas have swimming pools, so you can relax on the terrace while the kids splash about in the sunshine. Most North Cyprus holiday villas also have a fully fitted kitchen, so you can choose to eat at home or dine out at a local restaurant – the choice is yours!
6. Holiday Freedom: North Cyprus Holiday Villas v. Hotels
North Cyprus villa holidays offer so much more than a hotel. You can get up and eat breakfast on a sunny terrace whenever you like, rustle up a lunchtime snack from your own fridge, or cook local food bought in the market in your North Cyprus holiday villa kitchen. You can stock the villa’s fridge with the children’s’ favorite foods or local beers and not worry about what’s on the hotel menu, or the bar bill! Or, you can eat out at tasty and good value local restaurants, trying local dishes such as pides, a Turkish pizza!
