About the property

Villa in Alagadi, Nr. Esentepe, Kyrenia, North Cyprus - Countryside location, very quiet, 5 mins to great local beaches, 10 mins to local villages,,

Olive Grove House is an individually designed villa set in open countryside on the edge of a beautiful valley approximately 20 kms east of Girne (Kyrenia). With a large private plot, stunning views in all directions, and no close neighbours, it is perfect to get away from it all. It has 4 double bedrooms, each with their own large en-suite, a private pool, AC in all major rooms, lots of terracing for relaxing, internet, and a large garden with over 35 mature olive trees. The garden is laced with paths for leisurely strolls and seating to take in the views, relax and watch for the local wildlife - our own chameleons are so much fun.

The villa has large ground and first floor terraces, BBQ area, a massive pool patio area and dining terrace with plenty of shade. On this terrace is a beautiful spiral staircase leading up to bedroom 1 roof terrace.

The pool patio is completely fenced for child safety and gives superlative views of the mountains and valleys.

About Chris Smith

We live in UK and between us, have 6 grown-up children and 1 grandchild. Having worked and travelled abroad for many years, we decided we wanted to have a holiday home abroad, so visited many places, but fell in love with Northern Cyprus for it's scenery, beaches, people and generally relaxed way of life.

We wanted a place where all our family and friends could meet to enjoy holidays in such a setting. We have found it here and have already had many happy times here. We hope you will too.

Chris Smith purchased this villa in 2009

Why Chris Smith chose Gözübüyük

We have made our villa here a place for us to enjoy all the year and invite our family and friends whenever we get the chance. The location is so beautiful, peaceful and relaxing, yet is not overlooked at all and is within easy driving of the popular towns, villages and attractions of Northern Cyprus. The local wildlife all share our large garden and it is a joy having breakfast on the terraces watching chameleons basking in the sun.

What makes this villa unique

Apart from planning walks to the local beaches, valleys, reservoir etc, you will need to drive everywhere else, including the shops and restaurants. This is no hardship as nothing is that far away plus you have all the privacy you wish, views you will never forget, and the tranquility to relax you completely.

Fantastic villa with beautiful views. A must

  • 5 of 5

Wow ! We have stayed in a few villas in the time that we have been travelling to Northern Cyprus and we can say that Chris's villa has the most beautiful view and surroundings. We also found this villa to be the cleanliest and well maintained.

Our nearly 3 week stay flew by and as we was leaving we was saddened to be leaving such a fantastic location. We have already booked for next year.

The villa is maintained to a high standard as is the pool. The pool man / Gardener, Hatib was very friendly and we had frequent chats with him.


The gardens are lovely and we enjoyed watching the resident lizards.

Chris and Gemma was on hand and dealt with any queries in a speedy manner.

We have stayed the over side of the valley previously and we can honestly say that this is by far the best view.  We found ourselves mesmerized by the beauty of it. 

I would highly recommend.

We thought the villa was absolutely beautiful and well maintained with spectacular views.

We travelled with our three year old daughter and we really felt like it was a home from home. The villa was well equipped with everything you would need and was very accommodating to children.

There was a heat wave in June so having a clean and very well maintained pool was great for a cool down.

The villa is in a perfect location from the beach and nearby bars and restaurants.

We would throughly recommend this villa to friends and family and we will be definitely be returning.

Peaceful, relaxing, perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 spent the most relaxing, fantastic fortnight at Olive Grove House. The property is in a slightly out of the way location, which means you get privacy and peace. The house and pool are all well kept and the layout is perfect with sun on the pool all day, and shaded seating areas right next to it.

The properly was clean and tidy and well-equipped, certainly one of the best we have ever stayed in in this respect. The booking process was easy and the info pack provided was really comprehensive and welcome.

A small issue on the second day was dealt with very promptly by the local management.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this for a family holiday for those who value a quality property and quiet location.

Our family (two adults and three children) stayed here for a week in May. What an amazing place to stay - just fabulous!

The villa is in the most beautiful and peaceful spot in the hills. The views are spectacular, both of the sea and the mountains. The villa, itself, is beautifully finished and is equipped with everything you could want or need.The pool and gardens are lovely and the resident birds and lizards add yet another layer of interest. It is a very short drive to a wonderful beach and only 20 minutes to Kyrenia.

If we could give it 6 stars, we would!
