Courtyard House Within The Castle Walls



Updated: 12-Feb-2016
House in Famagusta, Cyprus - Peaceful Location, Walking Distance To Sandy Beach

This fully modernised Historic Famagusta Courtyard House is located in a private and peaceful setting, a superb sandy beach is within walking distance. The Courtyard House is such a relaxing place to stay. We think it is because the pace of life in the old city is so slow, and you feel this when staying here. Child friendly accommodation with a lot of playgrounds around. There are no main roads through the old city, no traffic lights, no roundabouts and no hotels. Most of the streets are narrow, lined by old stone built houses. It is a truly quaint and charming place surrounded in history. Rental prices are in pounds and the currency in North Cyprus is Turkish Lira, this means that North Cyprus is an inexpensive holiday location as compared to the Mediterranean Euro holiday destinations. This is the type of holiday where if you prefer not to drive you can easily enjoy without having to rent a car, as within one minutes walk there are a wide selection of restaurants and shops.

The local superb sandy beach is 15 minutes walk from the Courtyard House. The sea in this area is very calm and safe. There are restaurants, shops and water sports facilities.

Salamis Beach is 20 minutes drive from the Courtyard House. There are restaurants and cafes on the beach. Also, pedalos, wind surfing and yachting.

Glapsides beach is a long sandy beach within 10 minutes drive. The water here is very shallow and clean.


The easiest way is to fly direct to Larnaca in South Cyprus. It normally takes 35 to 40 minutes from Larnaca to the Courtyard House by taxi. Which can easily be arranged. Paphos is much further away from The Courtyard House and the drive is more than 2 hours, so we advise you to fly to Larnaca.

The other alternative is to fly to Ercan Airport in North Cyprus via Turkey. Ercan is 30 minutes drive from the Courtyard House.

From the Owner

The Famagusta Courtyard House is very peaceful and private. However, you are in the heart of The Old city of Famagusta which means you have a wide selection of restaurants and shops on your doorstep. You would be spending your holiday among the locals and get a feeling of the culture of Cyprus, rather than being isolated in a villa where you would need a car to go to restaurants, shops or the local beach.
