Guestbook comments from the owner

"We will come again!"

Wow! What an amazing holiday with our child in cyprus.

We arrived very well after a long trip from Poland with our little fellow Oskar. Than a very helpful turkish taxi driver drove us for very cheap to this absolut quite and picturesque house with the view to the sea. The pool was clean and warm and all rooms were in excellent order with no faults at all. The house gave us so much room to do things that we totally missed to go out. Just to buy some nice food in the little stores. All people here are totally helpful!

Thank you so much for being able to life in your house! We are sure to come back again!

Love yours Family Zur

"Ideal holiday home at a dream location"

We can highly recommend this gorgeous and spacious holiday home. It was ideal for us to stay there with our child, our friends and their children. There is a big living kitchen area which serves all needs of one or even two families perfectly. The kitchen/dining area leads to the terrace which then leads down to the pool. Everything is very well equipped and very clean. The beds are comfortable and the house was easy to heat in the evenings.

And then there are the views! For me the best thing of this accommodation.They are stunning with the mountains in the back and the sea in front. We could not get enough of them.

Even though we went in January we still got plenty of sun, even went for a swim in the sea and had breakfast outside. We also went for many walks and explored the area with our rental car which is recommended to have. There are lots of supermarkets, other shops and restaurants just a few driving minutes away down towards the coast.

We will definitely come back in the summer season to enjoy the pool and the beaches close by.

"Traumhafte Bougainvilla"

Wir sind mit zwei Familien und einer Großmutter angereist. Das Haus ist von den Gegebenheiten wunderbar gewesen. Eine Familie mit Baby schlief unten im Doppelbett mit eigenem Bad, wir, die zweite Familie mit zwei größeren Kindern und der Großmutter oben.

Das Masterschlafzimmer ein ein Bad ensuite und teilt sich eine eigene Terrasse mit dem Kinderzimmer. Alle Zimmer haben einen Balkon oder eine Terrasse, wo sich jeder ungestört zum entspannen zurück ziehen konnte. Die Hauptterrasse grent an die Küche, wo wir alle Mahlzeiten in der schönsten Sonne mit unschlagbarem Blick eingenommen haben. Wir Eltern fanden besonders gut, dass diese Terrasse abschließbar war, und man so nicht fürchten musste, dass die Kinder unbeaufsichtigt zu Pool gelangen können.

Das Haus ist sehr gepflegt, bietet viel Platz und ist sehr gemütlich. Die Betten waren sehr bequem und alles war einwandfrei sauber!

Wir haben uns von Anfang an sehr wohl gefühlt, und wurden mit Brot, Milch, Eiern und Obst willkommen geheißen, was super war, da wir uns nicht sofort um den ersten Snack kümmern mussten nach der Reise.

Wonderful trip to Cyprus

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren für 10 Tage angereist. Unser Flug ging über Istanbul bis nach Ercan. Dort wartete bereits ein durch die Vermieter organisierter Mietwagen auf uns. Innerhalb von 40 Minuten erreicht man dann die traumhafte Villa in Catalköy. Bei Ankunft erwartete uns ein liebevolles "Care-Paket" mit frischem Obst und kalten Getränken. Die Villa ist traumhaft gelegen an einem Berghang des Besparmak-Gebirges mit wunderbarem, unverbaubarem Blick auf das Meer und die gesamte Küstenlandschaft. Bei diesem Anblick setzt sofortige Erholung ein. Einfach nur schön!

Das Haus ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Mit vier Schlafzimmern und drei Bädern bietet es Platz für große Familien. Die Bäder sind modern und komfortabel, alles ist sehr, sehr sauber.

Aus allen Schlafzimmern hat man einen herrlichen Blick aufs Meer und die Küste. Die oberen Räume haben auch noch einen Balkon.

Die Vermieter sind ein sehr sympathisches Deutsch, Türkisch und Englisch sprechendes Ehepaar.

Mitte bis Ende Oktober ist aus unserer Sicht eine optimale Reisezeit für die Insel und besonders auch für diese Feriensiedlung, jedenfalls perfekt für Menschen, die Ruhe und Erholung suchen. Die Villa liegt in einer ruhigen Gegend. Wir haben die Ruhe sehr genossen.

Das Klima ist in dieser Zeit sehr angenehm, abends konnte man noch im Sommerkleid draußen sitzen, tagsüber schien meistens die Sonne, bei Temperaturen zwischen 24 und 30 Grad war alles möglich. Baden im herrlichen, großen Pool im Garten der Villa oder im Meer (das war noch wunderbar warm) oder auch Ausflüge und Wanderungen in die nähere Umgebung sind bei dem milden Klima gut möglich.

Es gibt viele schöne Ausflugsmöglichkeiten in Nordzypern, die es lohnt zu erkunden.

Einen traumhaften, geradezu atemberaubenden Blick hat man von der Burgruine Buffavento, der nicht unbeschwerliche Weg dorthin lohnt sich auf jeden Fall.

Auch eine Besichtigung des Klosters Bellapais und der Burgruine Hilarion ist ein absolutes Muß. Die nahgelegene Stadt Girne/Kyrenia erreicht man innerhalb von 15 Minuten, der historische Hafen und viele dort ansässige Restaurants laden zu zypriotischen und internationalen Köstlichkeiten ein.

Wir sind nicht das letzte Mal dort gewesen!

Wir freuen uns schon sehr auf den nächsten Besuch in der Villa und dem schönen Nordzypern.

Traumurlaub in wunderschöner Luxusvilla

  • 5 of 5

Wir durften zwei wunderschöne Wochen in dieser tollen Gegend verbringen! Einfach traumhaft: das Haus mit Pool, Garten mit den liebevoll angepflanzten Bougainville, Terrasse mit Sonnenliegen, der super Ausstattung inkl. Wlan in den zahlreichen Zimmern,... und natürlich die Strände, die Restaurants, die umliegenden Städte, der Wochenmarkt, der leckerste Hellim, den wir jemals gegessen haben und, und, und, .... Wir kommen wieder in die Bougainvilla!

Beautiful Villa with amazing pool and view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 10 days in this beautiful villa. The house is totally new and full of thoughtful details, we missed nothing. The flowers and the view that welcomes you in the morning are amazing. We pool service came twice a week and cleaned the pool and surrounding. The house itself is in best shape and really hygienic clean and well furnished.

A bit hard to find in the first place but really good located to all necessary facilities, like supermarkets, shopping locations and the nice harbor of Girne.

The sleeping rooms are generous and light, the kitchen new and well equiped.

The A/C is available in each room, but not really necessary during the day as you can leave the doors open cause of mosquito nets at almost every window/door.

Life in cyprus is anyway mostly outdoor at the pool beach, etc and you always find a shadily spott outside to eat or relax outside the pool.

Comfortble sun loungers are available, as well as a sun umbrella.

The landlord left so much material and information broschures that give great advises to sightseeing highlights, restaurants, etc.,they were even a big help in an emergency situation where they were able to translate english/ german turkish, which helped us a lot.

I would always go there again and enjoy cyprus and even travel more around as we did, the turkish side is worth it, will definently come back!

We came as two families with 4 kids for a fantastic holiday!

The house is really spacey, with either terrasses or balconys at almost every room.

On two floors we really hat enough space to have a comfortable holiday with 8 persons!

It was very clean, modern and lovely decorated.

The poolterrasse was the hit! With a 360° panorama-ocean-view, it was like paradise besides the very well looked after garden.

Also having the pool on it´s own level, the kids could play there, but still during the midtime, the bedrooms were quiet.

Also the extrabathroom on the poollevel next to the pool was very practical.

We really enjoyed taking the meals, or having a wine on the terrasse with that amazing view.

Also we want to compliment on the communication with the owner Tecelli. He was a very polite contact partner, as a local with great tips for our stay and all sorts of activities.

Many beaches were quite near, kyrenia a lovely harbourcity was very close.

We will definitely come back and can totally recommend the house!

pure bliss from the moment of arrival

Pure bliss from the moment of arrival

We had the warmest welcome in Villa Bougainvilla.

The big, full of light and perfectly equipped house is decorated with great taste. Everything was prepared for us and we felt welcome right from the beginning to enjoy our holiday.

The incredible view, the quiet surroundings, the sea close by, the beautiful garden, the well looked after pool makes the villa a place you want don't want to leave.

The owners gave us great local recommendations on restaurants, places to visits and daytrips which we all tried and loved. Make sure to do the same.

We highly recommend Villa Bougainvilla and would love to come back soon.

Thanks for a beautiful holiday!

International Music Festival 21 May-11 Juni Bellapais Abbey

Certainly an occasion not to be missed!

A Spring Music Festival in Bellapais which in takes place from mid-April to mid-June

Each year the International Bellapais Music Festival takes place between May and June each year. Since the first concert in 1996 this festival has attracted international artists to perform in stunningly beautiful Refectory Hall of Bellapais Abbey.

The refectory of the Bellapais Abbey is a wonderful place to host concerts, and the acoustics of the building itself are brilliant. Built in the 14th century under the patronage of the Lusignan kings, the Abbey is one of the most beautiful relics of Gothic architecture in Levante. During the night, the monastery is illuminated and with the combination of its arches you will feel as if you have been set in an other world.

Concerts and musical events take place in the abbey and in Kyrenia from May to October.
