About the Owner

I have known the island of Cyprus since I was 12 years old! I have lived in various parts of the island over the years but decided that Bellapais was the only place for me! I love the history of the village, the people and the relaxed atmosphere.

Beautiful villa, fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

Mary was extremely helpful throughout the booking process, helping us organise our transport and car rental for when we arrived.

The villa was exactly as described and looked even better than the photos. Everything was clean and tidy and plenty of information was provided on both the villa itself and the local area, we wanted for nothing! The local area is beautiful and we sampled every restaurant! (The best is Salt and Pepper) I would definitely return here again.

Wonderful couple's retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 12 days in Mary's gorgeous cottage. The pictures don't do her place justice. Very clean, beautifully decorated and had absolutely everything that we needed. The outside space in particular was spectacular...lounging by the pool, or up on the terrace overlooking the abbey during dinner, chilling out in the courtyard....there was a place to enjoy every part of the day. Bellapais itself is charming, great restaurants (think we tried all of them) and very welcoming people. We very much enjoyed the beaches, finding out favourite east of Girne. We would highly recommend this property to any couple seeking complete relaxation, tranquility and a chance to recharge in beautiful surroundings.

Delightful and charming

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year we have stayed in this lovely cottage, and we have just booked again for 2017. If you like to relax in the sunshine in lovely surroundings then there can be no better place! The cottage is well appointed and feels like home rather than just a rental. The village of Bellapais is really picturesque, and its people are friendly and helpful. It would be difficult to beat this cottage which is why we keep returning.

Another lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying in this lovely cottage. I have stayed in Bellapais many times and this is my favourite. I can do no more than echo the other reviews, everything is well thought out, the cottage is amply supplied and the setting glorious. We are back later this year. If you are a couple looking to stay in this region of North Cyprus you can do no better than renting here!

Bellapais revisited

  • 5 of 5

Having been lucky enough to get married in the grounds of Bellapais Abbey in 2013 we longed to return to the area for a holiday. This cottage provided the perfect place for 2 weeks of total relaxation. Situated in the heart of the village, you are immersed in to village life with easy access to the excellent local restaurants and amenities and only a short drive to the beach or the main town of Kyrenia. The cottage has been tastefully furnished and comes across as a home rather than the usual holiday rental. The courtyard and pool area are lovely areas in which to relax and the roof terrace provides a great view of the abbey. This is no criticism of the cottage but one word of warning - the street leading to the property has a very tight turn with only just enough room to manoeuvre the average hire car as we found out to our cost!

We had an amazing time and would recommend this place to anyone wanting to appreciate Northern Cypriot culture in the comfort of a beautiful home. We hope to return in the future.

A Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is our second holiday in this lovely villa. Once again everything was perfect and we had a thoroughly relaxing holiday. We love the location with the Abbey and restaurants nearly on your doorstep, the gardens of the villa were superb and the pool great for a dip to cool off. If it was possible to give it six stars we would do so!!

From the Owner

I first visited Bellapais with my parents when I was young and have loved it ever since! The friendly atmosphere and historic Abbey make it a wonderful place to visit.

Activity and Interests


There are many sandy coves along the coast. The nearest beach area is approximately 4 miles away. There are some beautiful beaches in North Cyprus.


When flying to North Cyprus there is the choice of two airports.

Larnaca or Ercan (Nicosia)

Larnaca is on the south coast and takes approximately 1 hour 30 minutes.

Flights to Larnaca are generally direct.

Ercan,east of Nicosia, is approximately 30-40 minutes away.

Flying in to Ercan is via Turkey.Flights generally touchdown at one of the airports in Turkey.Passengers remain on board.

We can arrange all airport transfers from either airports and car hire if required.


The cottage is in Bellapais village so walking to the village square, the Abbey and restaurants is very easy – no need to worry about drinking and driving!!

The village shop is about 3 minutes’ walk away and is very well stocked.

The town of Kyrenia, with its beautiful and historic harbour, is 5 minutes or so away by car.

It takes a similar time to get to the nearest supermarket.

Cyprus is covered with many historic sights of great interest which can be easily visited by car.

Further Details:

Bellapais Abbey plays host to many musical events. Generally these take place around May/June and again September/October time.

The village is very well served for restaurants which are open during the day and, of course, evening.
