Hi, dear Cyprus lovers,
I’d like to ask for your ideas. We’ve bought plane tickets to Ercan for 16 days next June. We’re a family with two teenagers; we prefer unspoiled nature and beaches with fewer infrastructures (no crowds and lines of umbrellas) but we like some sightseeing and wining and dining too. We’d like to rent a reasonably priced villa with a private swimming pool and we’re going to have a car for the whole stay.
Firstly, I thought that we may spend one week in Famagusta region (e.g. near Iskele) then 2 nights in Karpaz and another week near Kyrenia. The problem is that I cannot find any suitable villa (reasonably priced) in Famagusta area and even if I’ve found some compromise I still feel that Kyrenia side (especially east with mountains in background and lovely sea views) looks much prettier and the choice of houses is better. However, if I choose something e.g. near Esentepe or Tatlisu for all 16 days, we will probably see less of the island (especially Karpaz), am I right? Which option would you prefer and which area is more suitable to our preferences?
Thanks for all your tips.
