About Sue Bowers

I live in Herefordshire UK with my daughter and son-in-law and three of my five grandchildren. We live in a large old farmhouse along with our Jack Russell 'Lilly'

Sue Bowers purchased this bungalow in 2006

Why Sue Bowers chose Ozankoy

It was during a chance visit to see friends in Kyrenia whilst holidaying in the South that I fell in love with the magic of Northern Cyprus. I particularly love the romance of the mountain crusader castles and the beauty of the Karpas Peninsular. Also the legendary Bellapais abbey is wonderful. The local people are friendly, helpful and always eager to please.

What makes this bungalow unique

The Villa is 10 -30 minutes drive, East or West to really good, safe sandy beaches and has the most wonderful mountain views from the roof terrace, reached by a lovely spiral staircase. We are only 5 minutes walk/2mins drive to the nearest supermarket and only a few minutes drive to the nearest good restaurant.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What can we say...everything about your villa is perfect. The layout and decor is lovely. A great location and literally everything you could possibly need. We have had a lovely week, relaxing days and beautiful evenings. Thank you so much for letting us stay at the wonderful Villa Lorraine. Lisa and Chris, Brixham, South Devon.

So welcoming and homely!

  • 5 of 5

A well kept secret! From the moment you walk in, it feels like home and a wonderful calm place to relax. The property ticked every box with everything you need there! The only downside for us was the beautiful pool was too cold for us to use during the winter months but the local beaches and sea where more than accommodating! Good location to travel around from but with 2 young children (5 & 2) we definitely needed a car - pushchair total waste of time due to lack of pavements and we hardly used our back carry as kids safe and happy walking. The local bus was easy enough and fun!! Owner, managers, neighbours and locals really helpful and informative, like you had known them forever! Such a refreshing friendly place and ‘can do’ mentality - we felt totally safe for the 5 weeks we were there. We thought we would struggle to find enough to keep us occupied but there is plenty if you go off exploring and talking to people! Having a slower pace with the family was bliss - we loved it and had a wonderful family adventure!!! Definitely recommend! Thank you!!!

Lovely well kept villa in convenient location

  • 4 of 5

We wanted a sunny week's break with Golf, scuba and tennis opportunities in our own space with a pool. Villa Lorraine perfect for that as a haven to return to for sunbathing or a dip in the pool. A walk or short drive to some excellent local shops and restaurants, and the sports stuff all within 20-30 min drive.

Well maintained if some things a little tired in places - normal Turkish plumbing , patio furniture and TV could do with update, but none of these affected our enjoyment. The wi-fi worked better than in some hotels with no outages we noticed!

We'd recommend for couples or families, and would definite;y go back.

Beautiful villa with lovely gardens and pool and everything needed for a relaxing family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We have had a fantastic, relaxing week in this beautiful villa, which is modern, spacious and has all amenities for a relaxing and very comfortable holiday.

The villa is well equipped, like a home from home, very clean and tastefully decorated. The gardens are exactly as shown on the photographs, with plenty of chairs and sunloungers around the pool. We spent most of our time here as it was so hot and it was great to have our own private gardens and pool to cool down in during the day and the spacious terrace to sit out in on an evening.

The owner has been very helpful from the start of the booking, replying immediately to any queries and arranging our transfers and car hire, which all went to plan. The villa managers were waiting for us on arrival, despite a very late arrival time and there was a complimentary welcome back waiting to keep us going until we could shop the next morning. It was nice to know they were nearby if we had any problem.

All in all we have had a fantastic holiday at Villa Lorraine, which was over far too soon.

Home from home !!!

  • 5 of 5

Not my first stay and it won't be my last ....

The Villa gives us everything we need and year after year never lets us down ....

This year we stayed with family and wondered if we might miss our privacy as a couple , but we didn't .

The layout of the Villa , the space leaves you with bolt holes to

Hide in for that relaxation and privacy ...

The pool, garden , and mountain views change daily As the light fades and rises...

The heat this year was excessive but the shade , pool and air con made it allwYs manageable ....

We love the freedom scar gives us to venture further a field ....

And to be fair around Kyrenia itself I was a little taken aback by the expansion work .... will it enhance the area ....

Time will tell

Try the cafes and the kitchen restraunt by the Villa perfect to

Eat in and saunter back to the Villa ...

Sue keeps the quality of the Villa in good repair , always fresh paint work and Norman and Gill clean and maintain the rooms to a high standard ....

North Cyprus has always been an destination I return to , Villa Lorraine is part of that journey as well ....

Thanks Sue you never let us down xx

Several beaches and coves nearby most within a 10 min drive. Catalkoy Beach/Shayna with bar and lovely open-air covered restaurant. Lara Beach (20 mins on East coast road) nice beaching with good cafe. Alagadi is a beautiful beach with safe swimming and turtle watching and good cafe. The best beach experience though is at the Karpas Peninsular for beaches out of this world!


Nearest airport is Ercan(with approx lhr changeover at a Turkish airport) 30 minutes drive to the Villa. You can also fly direct to Larnaca in the South(90 mins to Villa) various airlines from many regional airports fly there It is highly recommended that you hire a car for your holiday. The the owner can arrange this for you. Also airport transfers can be arranged for you.


Village of Catalkoy 1 mile away. Village of Ozankoy (marking the start of the Crusader Path featured in our book 'walks of Northern Cyprus' which I have placed at the villa) Kyrenia (Girne) with it's lovely harbour 3km. Bellapais Abbey 3-4km

Further Details:

Local supermarket, a very friendly shop with a wide variety of goods fab deli several meat counters and fish counter. currency exchanged. They are open from around 7.30 until 10pm 7 days a week. Also several reasonably price eating places within walking distrance of the Villa. Very good pharmacy 5 mins walk. Northern Cyprus has the most wonderful climate, in fact one of the best in the whole of the Mediterranean. There are three Crusader Castles to visit in the mountains and one on the Harbour. The memory of the stunning views and romance of the castles will stay with you forever. Walt Disney is reputed to have based his story Sleeping Beauty on the towers of St.Hilarion Castle. Bellapaise Abbey built in 1325 is legendary and Lawrence Durrell wrote his great book "Bitter Lemons" under The Tree of Idleness here - a must to visit!

Kyrenia is ideal for hiking for people of all ages. Take an orchid walk(March/April details in information folder) and try and spot some of the 32 confirmed species, boat trips, paragliding, horse riding, scuba diving and not to forget shopping!
