Northern Cyprus - the last unspoilt jewels in the Med
Northern Cyprus is worth visiting at any time of year. During July and August it can be very hot. Spring erupts in a blaze of flowers in mid-February, and it is still possible to sunbathe and swin in the sea up to the end of November. There is plenty of flora and fauna to see, walkers will enjoy the many walks available.
For history lovers, there are many historical sites to explore and there is plenty to see from magical castles and Roman mosaics, to monasteries and churches. There are plenty of beaches ranging from those with a variety of water sports available to the wild and deserted. The waters are crytsal clear.
Karmi (Karaman) and Kyrenia
Karmi is without doubt the most beautiful and well-kept village in the whole of Cyprus. A beautiful old church, masses of bougainvillea and other flowers, little cobbled streets meander around, running mountain streams, and wild-life are the only sounds you are likely to hear. Village Amenities include a shop, 2 restaurants, pub, bar & coffee shop. 5 mins down the hill supermarkets, shops, beaches & restaurants can be found. The lovely old Kyrenia harbour is one of the most beautiful in the Mediterranean. The local people are friendly, polite and hospitable, the cuisine is reasonable priced and superb. Karmi village is inhabited by mostly British or foreign people who have been living in the village for a long time. They have their own bars & restaurants . Karmi is on the Five Finger Mountains, having one of the best views on the planet! The area is not as humid as the other parts of the island. There is usually a gentle breeze coming from the mountains.
We stayed here in Ocober - the weather was great at this time of year.
The villa is lovely - nice spacious rooms, and well equipped.
The pool area is great for sunbathing - and gets the sum pretty much all day.
We had a great time and would definitely stay there again if we returned to Northern Cyprus.

We had a wonderful break at Villa Jacaranda. The Villa itself was spacious, immaculately clean and contained everything we needed. We particularly enjoyed having a private swimming pool, from which there were spectacular views down the mountainside to the sea. The owner's assistance in arranging taxi transfers to and from Larnaca airport and a hire car for our use when we were there was an added bonus. Our main objective on this particular holiday was to relax by the pool, read our books and enjoy some sunshine and we couldn't have picked a better place to unwind. Northern Cyprus is still undeveloped in terms of tourist attractions and may not suit the younger generation and those who are looking for nightlife and exitement, but it's certainly ideal if you want somewhere warm and peaceful to unwind. After showing my friends the photographs we took at the villa they can't believe the price, compared to similar style villas in other med resorts it's very good value.
Villa Jacaranda is a lovely spacious property and is like home from home. Very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The outside area has a beautiful pool with wonderful views and plenty of space to sit in sun or shade to enjoy a meal or a drink. The owner was really helpful with any questions we had and also arranged taxi and car hire. Nothing was too much trouble for her. We wouldnt hesitate to recommend this villa to our friends and are considering returning ourselves next year.
