This is an interesting villa with lots of history. Worth the effort as we had to go in our friends hire car as we were not allowed to take our southern Cyprus registered car down there!

Set in a military zone Mavi Kosk obviously has some kind of past although what that really was we will probably never really know. We paid 9 Lira (£1.20) for three adults and two kids and were given a booklet telling us about each room....More
