About the Owner
I live in South Liverpool, England not far from where John Lennon and George Harisson once lived. I live with my husband, daughter and our pet dog Buster. My husband and I both work and holiday in England, we love the lake District and Northern Cyprus. Northern Cyprus, Lapta, reminds us of the lake district without the rain, but with lots of sunshine.

From the Owner
“Our villa is situated in a quite Cul-de-sac,with a short car ride to the main road or a 10 minute walk. Whereby there is access to bars restaurants, shops and supermarkets, this is what the Brits who live in this area, call the Lapta Strip. There are local beaches nearby, we would recommend escape beach,which has all facilities and access to beautiful white sands and blue sea. You can swim out to a secure raft in the sea and enjoy sunbathing and swimming in the Med. The local people are very friendly and helpful. We can recommend places to visit, drink and eat. Plus help is at hand from our friend and property manager Afzal. If you want to see what dates are available please click on the "Check Availability" link below thank you.”
Activity and Interests
The nearest beach is a 10 minutes drive and has family-friendly activities. Escape Beach is a private beach which has a restaurant and bars, lots of sun loungers and bean bags. There is a variety of water sports activities. Recently Escape Beach opened a outdoor club which is very chic and trendy.
Sunset beach is a family orientated beach which caters more to children with a variety of activities, playgrounds, water sports and etc.
In Lapta there is a water park which is ideal for children.
Ercan Airport is about 40 minutes drive from Lapta (all flights via Turkey), Larnaca about 80 minutes. Pick-ups can be arranged from either airport. Car hire, though not essential, but not recommended,public transport avaiable. Car hire companies usually offer a discount on airport pickups if you hire a car from them, and this can be arranged by our selves. Car hire is about £20 per day.
Lapta is a 20 mins drive from Kyrenia and less than an hour from Lefkosa (Nicosia). The beautiful village of Bellapais with its Abbey and stunning views of Kyrenia is a 30 min drive as is the mountain castle ruins of St Hilarion. The walled city of Gazimagusa to the East is about 1.5 hours, with medieval architecture and shops selling copies of famous brand goods, and the sandy beaches to be found in this area are magnificent.
Driving in Cyprus is easy, lefthand side drive as in the UK and the roads away from the major towns are relatively quiet. As well as Turkish Lira, most restaurants, bars and shops accept sterling as a currency, giving a far better exchange rate than you could buy Turkish Lira at home. If you need to change travellers cheques or use ATMs, these can be found in Kyrenia (Girne) We use HSBC who have english speaking assisstants. The area around Kyrenia has some great restaurants to suit all tastes. The harbour in Kyrenia is beautiful with lots of waterfront bars and restaurants to choose from, whilst the road from Lapta to Kyrenia has a vast number of restaurants and top class hotels, all serving great food. Recent political changes mean that on a visit to Nicosia (Lefkosa) you can now pass through the Green Line to the Greek side for the first time since 1974; you will need your passport and Euros to spend in the south.
Climate: Northern Cyprus is blessed with the most pleasing climate in all of Europe. Winters are mild and rarely extend beyond February, and with over 300 days of sunshine a year, the temperatures can reach into the 70s well into December, and as early as February. In April and May, North Cyprus is at its most beautiful, with fields of wild flowers in full bloom and the weather is not unlike that of a good English summer. June, July and August are the hottest months and ideal for sun worshippers.

From the Owner
“The Villa is detached and has its own garden with a private drive way and swimming pool. We have been complimented on the panoramic views of the mountains and the Med. The style of the the villa puts me in mind of the Art Deco period. It is has 4 bedrooms all en-suite. The Villa has tiled floors throughout, with a marble sweeping staircase to the first floor. From the terrace you can take in the views of the Med and on a clear day your can see the mountains of Turkey. Most of the Villas nearby are owned by British people who are very friendly. The area is quiet and relaxing but within easy reach of all amenities and historical towns.”
