Villa with Secluded Gardens, Large Private Pool, Sea and Mountain Views



Updated: 26-Apr-2016
3 bedroom/2 bathroom villa with sea and mountain views in Ozankoy, near Kyrenia

The Well House is a 3 bedroom villa in Ozankoy, a small peaceful village set back from the coast and just 10 mins drive away eastwards from the harbour town of Kyrenia. The house totals 230 square metres and is set in a double plot with private 12x5m pool and professionally landscaped gardens and orchard. All 3 large double bedrooms have their own balconies and stunning sea or mountain views over 300 year old olive groves. The Well House was completed in 2004 but already has the feel of a more established property. It is beautifully furnished throughout with a mixture of traditional Karpas furniture and modern fittings. Pale honey coloured marble floors and open plan downstairs living areas give a feeling of space and uncluttered living extending to exterior terraces, pergola and patios for dining and relaxing. Many lovely restaurants, beaches and places to visit within a few mins drive. Fully air conditioned, central heating during winter months. Favoured east side of Kyrenia.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the house - and it was really weird walking in as it is the same design as the first villa we rented – but in large scale! It took half way through breakfast to work out how much yours had been extended. Lovely garden - I did a bit of geranium dead heading but gardener had done a good job on everything else. I know it is out of season but weather was still kind enough on a few days for some lounger lazing and we ate breakfast outside. The house is very well equipped, the bed extremely comfortable, which always makes for a good holiday and we had a wonderful stay.

Activity and Interests


There are scores of beaches within easy driving distance of The Well House. Our favourites are the unspoilt Algardi Turtle Beach (covered cafe protected from the sun - and showers but no sun bed facilities), Vogue Beach and Acapulco Beach (full facilities, pools and restaurants). There is also a small natural cove, just a 10 minute walk away.


Ercan airport is a 25 minute drive away. Currently all flights to TRNC have a short stop in Turkey but direct flights are possible for summer 2012. The border is now open for British citizens wishing to fly into Larnaca airport and transfers (which can be arranged on request) take approx one and a half hours. Hire car can be arranged on request. Cars hired in the south are not insured in the north. If flying into south, best to take a taxi transfer and hire a car in the north.


The Well House is in Ozankoy, a small peaceful village set back from the coast and just 10 mins drive away from the harbour town of Kyrenia or Girne. There are many lovely restaurants and beaches within a few minutes drive. The local supermarket is just 3 mins away by car.
