About Roger Farr

Roger is a semi-retired Financial Director of a manufacturing company.

Teresa does voluntary work for a local charity.

Our home is in Peterborough, UK, but there is nothing we love more than to visit our wonderful villa in North Cyprus, and our lovely apartment overlooking the Kotor Bay fjord in Montenegro.

Roger Farr purchased this villa in 2008

Why Roger Farr chose Çatalköy

Our villa offers excellent 360 degree views to the sea and the beautiful Besparmak (Five Finger) mountain range.

It is very peaceful and yet very close to all the amenities you need and to many of the tourist 'must sees and do's' including of course, fantastic beaches.

What makes this villa unique

The White House looks and feels stunning - both inside and out.

We have kitted it out very comprehensively with kitchen and personal equipment, such that it will feel like a home from home without you needing to bring such things as hairdryers etc etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fabulous villa in a beautiful quiet location to relax with great sea and mountain views. The villa is spacious and well looked after, kitchen has everything you need. We made the most of the weather sitting around a lovely outside area with a great private pool and BBQ. 15 minutes into Kyrenia to the harbour for all the restaurants, Catalkoy also has great restaurants near to villa. Airport pickup and car rental all organised with the booking. Easy to book, great communication from the owner. This was our second visit and we have already booked to go again next year.

Fabulous villa and location - can't wait to return

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this wonderful villa, and intend that there will be many more.

The experienced owners and local agent are very friendly and make everything so easy to book. They arrange transfers and car hire and provide heaps of tourist information and tips for what to see and do. The whole experience is trouble free and relaxing, even before arriving at the villa.

The villa is even more stunning that the website photos, is very spacious, luxurious and superbly maintained. It is extremely well equipped and has all you need for a great family holiday whether you wish this to be active or just enjoy the peace and quiet offered and to relax. It has a lovely large pool, plenty of terracing, sunbeds parasols, BBQ and fantastic views of the sea and mountains from the pool and in fact from every position in or outside the villa.

Although in a quiet position, it is very close and handy for shops, restaurants, buses and centrally placed for all that North Cyprus has to offer.

All in all – it provides everything we could possibly want and has provided our best ever holidays!

Stunning - We will be back!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a truly wonderful holiday in NC... I would recommend the whole experience to anyone looking for a fantastic holiday in a truly wonderful country. The villa was amazing, fully equipped with everything you could need. It was spotlessly clean, everything worked with plenty of hot water and in a fantastic location. The pool was clean and very user friendly with lots of sunbeds and umbrellas. The location of the villa was brilliant - close to all amenities but set in a quiet location with lots of privacy. A 5* hotel is just a 5 min walk away and we used their facilities. They made us feel very welcome and were more than happy for us to visit them. We had a turkish bath in the hotel spa (which was amazing) and ate a couple of times at the hotel evening buffet, which was fantastic value for money and was superb! We even visited the on-site casino which was good fun and was very relaxed.

The whole experience from the initial contact with Roger the villa owner to booking our flights (we flew with Atlas Global and I would certainly recommend the airline, very efficient, friendly and extremely cheap flights which included baggage and in-flight meals, no hidden "extras") to the airport transfers and the hire car - everything was stress-free and ran completely smoothly. We certainly feel like we have had a total holiday and have come home all refreshed and revitalised. Having a washing machine available in the villa is a dream as we did not even have any washing to do when we got home!!!! I cannot recommend this holiday experience highly enough everything about NC, the villa and the communication with Roger was first class and we will certainly be back!! Thank you for everything!!! Theresa

Brilliant - would definitely stay again!

  • 5 of 5

Great villa, spotlessly clean, everything exactly as it should be. Had a fabulous week, close enough to town to be convenient and far enough to enjoy the peace and quiet. We had no need to contact the local agent at all during the stay, as everything was exactly as it should be, with the pool cleaned and topped up during our stay too. So much fun to be had with the pool and bbq we never even bothered to switch on the TV, although it was nice to know it is available - along with DVDs and books and board games. All the rooms are spacious and very comfortable, lovely upstairs balcony to enjoy in the evenings. Just wish we could have stayed longer!

Wonderful villa with exceptional views

  • 5 of 5

Great villa with everything we could possibly need. Fantastic pool which was cleaned regularly during our stay. Superb location with easy access to Girne and the surrounding area. The owner was so helpful and organised our airport transfer and car hire which worked brilliantly. Would highly recommend this villa and north Cyprus.

Owner's Response: Our 100% aim is to provide the villa and pool etc in top condition, which we know will ensure that all who stay here will have a fabulous time, due also to its great location and views. It is in a peaceful position but very close to shops, attractions and amenities. This lovely family like so many others, clearly feel we have achieved our objective. Rightly so, our guest was very particular before booking with us, and asked many questions including - "the water quality in the pool must be in good condition to be able to use it, I can't express how important is pool for holiday ... also tidiness of the house is really important, clean towel, and clean bed sheets & kitchen equipment/ dishes." We are pleased that once again we have more than met guests expectations

Car: recommended

In the charming village of Catalkoy, near beaches & 5* Malpas Hotel. Supermarket, bus & restaurant close by.

Kyrenia is on the north coast of Turkish Cyprus. It's a busy small town with a horseshoe harbour appreciated for its natural beauty, lined with bars & restaurants. The harbour castle & maritime museum are spectacular.

The nearby free Alagardi (Turtle) Beach and Club Acapulco are the top two beaches in Kyrenia with many facilities, offering plenty of entertainment , bars, restaurants, casino & night club. These two beaches are perfect for younger travellers. The several vast and unspoilt Turtle beaches are a short drive.

There are wonderful places for walking all over Northern Cyprus in the Besparmak Mountains. The mountains host many castles and ruins all well worth a look for the views alone.

Lusignan Bellapais Abbey in North Cyprus is a must. Enclosed to the north by the sea and to the south by the greenery of the Besparmak (Five Finger) Mountain range, it offers the most magnificent scenery

Golf: The fantastic new Korinium golf club is just 10 mins drive. Great facilities, great course and amazing views of the sea, coast and mountains.

Ski: Ski-ing is possible during winter months on the Trodos mountain in South Cyprus - about 2 hours drive.
