Villa in Karsiyaka, Kyrenia, Cyprus, North Cyprus - Peaceful Location On The Edge Of Village
Villa patrica is surrounded with maturing well maintained gardens containing various shrubs, flowers and fruit trees including orange, olive, grapefruit, lemon, lime, banana, date palm and pomegaranite which make it very secluded. Located on the outskirts of the sleepy village of Karsiyaka. Karsiyaka has stunning views to the mountains, and a flat plain between the mountains and the mediteranian sea. You get a true taste of Cypriot life, unhurried and untouched by hotel complexes. There are plenty of facilities still at hand: there are markets. A butcher, bakers, barbers, shops and an internet cafe within walking distance. Villa Patrica is 5 min drive from the beautiful bay near the village, and horse shoe baech which has a beach restaurant. Further down the road is Denizkizi beach with golden sands in a cove, were you can sit and relax or hire a jetski, go scuba diving or try any number of other water sports available.

Had a fantastic time here in August. The villa is very peaceful and private so was just perfect for relaxing. The pool was beautiful and very well maintained as were the gardens. Inside was all you could wish for. Our son enjoyed watching the countless dvd's! You do need a car here but that isn't disputed and they are some fantastic restaurants on the main road. We loved silver rocks and seapoint. The prices in the restaurants and shops are amazingly cheap and very good value. Definitely recommend this area and the villa
Stuning villa and settings
We have just arrived back fron the villa Patricia 9th August 2014 and just had to comment on the villa.
we had a wonderful time and the villa is amazing what a beautiful garden and the views are stunning. We must have spent at least 4 hours a day in the pool and also had a couple of barbeques but it was so cheap to eat out. The Green Palace was lovely food and the Wild Duck was a great full English we also thought Vini Vici was good food and the one opposite it called Seapoint was a lovely setting and the food and service very good. Thank you for letting us experencing your lovely home in the sun we love the country and the people were very nice and helpful.
We stayed at the villa for 2 weeks in august 2013, we being me, my wife and 3 kids aged 15, 7 & 4. After many years of villas in Turkey we opted for a change and new very little of northern Cyprus and what it had to offer. The villa was great, very well equipped, in great condition and really felt like a home and not just a rental property. The kids loved the pool, which was a good size and had a graduated depth, which is important when you have small children and they can touch the bottom. The gardens and pool were well maintained and the poolman came daily to do his bit and keep it clean. The villa is located in a very quiet area, which is great for peace and relaxation but it does mean that there isn't much around. Within walking distance is 1 restaurant and a small shop and that is pretty much it so I would say a car is a must. We had a car for the whole 2 weeks and although there were days were we didn't use it, it only cost around £220 so it didn't really matter. The car means you can get out and about, see what the island has to offer, explore the beaches and enjoy the shops and restaurant's in Kyrenia. If driving abroad scares you then you needn't worry as they drive on t the left in Cyprus so it's just like driving back here in England. In summary, great villa, perfectly equipped in a lovely area but you will need a car.
Our first villa holiday
My family and I stayed at the villa in May 2013 and had a fantastic time. It was our first stay in a villa and we weren't quite sure what to expect but on arrival we were very impressed and it was home from home and very clean. The garden was immaculate with fabulous fruit trees which supplied us with fresh juice every morning. There was also a fantastic BBQ which we used most days to cook on. The pool was safely fenced off,clean and tended to during our stay and was loved by our 3yr old aswell as ourselves. We had a small problem with noise from a water pump and after contacting the owners there was someone out to look at it that afternoon and it was fixed first thing the next day.Couldn't have asked for a better service.
We left the villa as we found it and received our deposit back 4weeks after arriving home,as agreed on booking.
As a mixed age family (76,74,44,38 and 3) personally,we felt a car was needed but there was also a very nice,friendly restaurant within walking distance that we used for a few nights.
All in all it was a lovely holiday and we will definitely go back in the future.

From the Owner
“We love our villa and the Karsiyaka area purely because of the laid back Mediterranean lifestyle and the really friendly locals. We were married there in 2010 at Bellapais abbey and a few of our Cypriot neighbors came to the wedding. The gentleman who owns the field behind us often throws us up some lemons from his trees which surround us. In september they are picking the olives from the trees around us, we take the kids to the village factory where they show you round as all the locals bring in their crops. You can buy the oil they have surplus and the local honey which goes well on their yogurt for breakfast.”
Activity and Interests
Public and private beaches are with 5/10 minutes drive/walk away. Our local beach has a couple of small restaurants which the locals use as well. Lapta which is the next village along has planty of bars and retaurants and a good waterpark for the children and adults. 30 minutes drive further up the coast you have the busy town kyrenia with the venitian harbour, castle and museum holding the remains of the oldest ship in the world. We have just discovered a fantastic beach 20 min walk down road.
Nearest airport is ecran which is 30/40 minutes away. Larnaca is 90 minutes away. Arrangements for transfers can be made with the family run local firm who will also supply you with a hire car for very reasonable rates, they have never let us down. A hire car is recommended.
We can arrange to have you met at the airport and transported directly to the villa, the same family run business will leave you a hire car of choice at the villa for the duration of your stay if required.
Local village shop which is owned by our nearest cypriot neighbour is well within walking distance. Local park with swings, pool table, bar etc is 5 min walk down hill and local restaurant is five minutes walk up the hill where you can watch sunset as you dine. We have recently found a small cove called blue lagoon which is 20 min walk away from villa and is sheltered and fantastic for swimming , snorkelling etc.
