The slightly elevated position of the villa allows uninterrupted views of the Besparmak mountains to the south and views of the sea to the north. Bellapais Abbey and the ancient hill fortress of St Hilarion are lit up at night and clearly visible from our terraces and balconies.
The covered veranda houses a large outdoor granite dining table, seating 8, and is where most meals take place. Next to the veranda is a large courtyard overlooking the garden and pool and is an ideal area for children to play.
The extensive landscaped garden looks beautiful all year round and is managed by a team of gardeners who attend the plot twice a week. To the east of the villa is an orchard containing a variety of citrus and other fruits. The fruit tastes delicious picked straight from the trees! The garden is walled with plenty of parking space. A Turkish barbecue near the pool is a very popular amenity. There is lighting at night along the front wall of the villa, in the courtyard and veranda and inside the pool.
The outside of the property looks stunning with the center piece being the 11 m. by 5 m overflow pool. It has Roman steps leading into the shallow end of the pool affording easy access for the young and elderly. There are separate steps down into the deep end. An outdoor shower is situated next to the pool. The ample terraces around the pool with loungers, umbrellas and side tables ensures there is plenty of space for large families.
Inside the villa is fully air-conditioned with solar paneled water heating. Back up electric water heating is available if necessary and electric fans are provided. Central heating is installed for winter lets.
The very large lounge and dining area, with a wooden table seating 8, has 5 sets of patio doors leading to the veranda, courtyard and pool. The luxury Siemens kitchen has a gas and electric hob with extractor unit, dishwasher, microwave and large fridge/freezer. Off the kitchen is the utility room with a large sink, washing machine, iron and ironing board and space for the high chair and other baby equipment. A large travel cot is provided.
