On the edge of the small town of Iskele and not in a tourist area, the location is full of the old charm of local life. It has modern facilities in the house and a good local supermarket and an Excellent butchers to cater for all your needs.
The Villa has a huge pool which is the full width of the Villa and it's major asset, although you are just 5 minutes by car from a beautiful 'Long Beach' bathing area and the coast road has many other beaches also each with charming eateries. Ten minutes further down the coast road and you are in the ancient citadel of Gazimagusa, (Famagusta) which has been fought over for thousands of years and shows the evidence in it's architecture and that is most evident in the use of the old churches that have, and still are, used by many faiths.
Between the two venues is the ancient Roman city of Salamis, the ancient capital of the island. The surviving ruins are those left from the city when it sank into the sea following an earthquake and resulting tidal wave..
The Villa lived up to the expectations and catered for my children and grandchildren alike.
A great escape!
Comfortable, spacious and well equipped - a real home from home. Ideally located for exploring Famagusta and the Karpaz. The local caretaker Emirali is a real asset and nothing is too much trouble. Our second time at this villa and we'd certainly book again.
We stayed at the villa for 2 weeks and left on 12th July the owner has asked me to comment on a review posted by the guest who arrived after us.
The pool is not shared and we had exclusive use of it.
The air conditioning was working in all the rooms we used but we did not use the ground floor bedroom so we never checked that.
The caretaker was very helpful and quickly responded whenever we contacted him.
There were very few insects in the house but we expected this due to the climate.
We never thought that it was a long way from the beach.
We really enjoyed our holiday and we will return next year.
The owner gave wrong description for the villa which is with a shared pool without any privacy, no working A/C in ground floor and insects everywhere even on beds.And it is very far from beach.
I made a complain to Trip Advisor and I am claiming my money back. The owner is not cooperative at all.
