Best holiday ever .Stayed Bellapais Monastery Village .Up on a hill could go into,details but best looked up yourself .So peaceful and a further short walk up to the village of Bellapais for lovely restaurants .The proprietors even came to pick us up and return if not fancying the walk .Famous Durrell author lived up there .Pleasant walk down into Kyrenia lovely harbour ,boat rides, Tavernas etc . A little heaven wish we could go again,age and poor health unfortunately make that a no no now .
I can confirm Bellapais is beautiful. I believe Mr Lawrence Durrell wrote his book 'Bitter Lemons' there. Kyrenia is a great harbour with a castle and museum. The Turks got the best side of the Island in the North. The beaches are far better than in the South. You pay in Turkish Lire and entitled to duty free. I found the North cheaper.I prefer to get out of touristy spots around the coast and head for the mountains inland where you see and meet real Cyprus . I always enjoy driving around the Troodos Mnts. Northern Cyprus is a must for me to visit again.I recommend the Hotel Oskar.
