Ozankoy ticks all the boxes for a great villa holiday in North Cyprus - a pretty mountain setting, lovely views over the sea, friendly village atmosphere, and yet only 2 miles east of Kyrenia town.
Ozankoy is a popular villa holiday destination for Europeans and Brits, as well as one of the friendliest villages in North Cyprus, so you'll always find someone to chat to as you shop in the village 'corner shop' for essential supplies, including the fresh, unwrapped bread. The local butcher in Ozankoy will sell you the choicest cuts of meat for your holiday villa barbecue, and you can pick your own local sweetcorn for the BBQ too. The Five Fingers Restaurant offers wireless internet access for those who need to keep in touch, and the village even has a personal car wash service for your dusty rental car! On Sundays during the summer, you'll discover a 'tabletop' market, where you can haggle for unusual gifts.
Osankoy villas for rent are ideal if you want to explore North Cyprus, but not travel too far! Drive just five minutes into the mountains and you'll discover the towering ruins of Bellapais Abbey, the 'abbey of peace', with impressive views down to the coast and the sea through the enormous arched windows. At night, you can dine under the stars at a Bellapais restaurant, enjoying wonderful views over the coastline. If you're feeling fit, you can even walk to Bellapais from Ozankoy along an old Crusader pathway, winding up the mountainside through ancient olive, almond and lemon groves.
There are several good restaurants in Ozankoy. Erol's serves succulent garlic prawns, while both the Five Fingers Restaurant and Rafters serve an excellent British-style Sunday lunch.
Historic Kyrenia town is easy to reach from Ozankoy, and an ideal day out from your villa for rent. Start you day at the elegant Venetian harbour, perhaps with a cup of strong Turkish coffee and sticky baklava at a harbourside café. Then climb the battlements of mighty Kyrenia castle for a bird's eye view over the town, before enjoying lunch at a rooftop restaurant. Save some time for shopping in quirky shops in the winding back streets, before enjoying a cool beer in a local bar.
Some of the nicest beaches in North Cyprus are also just a short drive away. You can enjoy the dark sands and peaceful atmosphere at Karakum beach, or watch rare sea turtles dig their nests in the golden sands at Alagadi beach. For non-stop fun in the sun, your Ozankoy rental villa is just a short journey from Acapulco Beach, with its water sports, beach bar, golden sands, shallow waters - and open air nightclub for dancing under the stars!
