“Lovely villa. Parking problems can be an issue however!”
Reviewed 5 August 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We enjoyed our stay at this property, it is quite spacious and well equipped. The pool is of decent size and cool enough in June to make swimming always refreshing. Perhaps the taller trees could do with a trim to lessen the amount of debris falling in the pool and allow more sun to hit the sun bathing area. The only drawbacks we could find ( not that we went looking for them ) were the neighbours whose property overlooks the pool; they left their poor dog out on the balcony all day every day and it`s lonely cries were pitiful. The other problem we had was regarding parking the hire car. The lady from Bellapais car rentals agreed ( or so we were lead to believe ) a total price with the attendant at abbey car park for us to park for the duration of our hire period. We paid this at the start of our hire period and for 8 days things were fine. On the final day, however, we returned to the car park in the afternoon to find a different attendant. He asked for more money. We explained about the agreement but he still didn`t seem happy. We parked up and started to walk to the villa and the attendant was waiting ( where a screen was placed due to some repairs to a house ). My partner had walked ahead and I didn`t realise he had again demanded more money from her. I followed a few minutes later carrying several bags and a water container. He demanded money and I again told him of the arrangement the lady from Bellapais Car Rental had made for us. I tried to walk on but he then assaulted me ( very firm prod in the chest ).Deciding this had gone too far I gave him the money and walked to the villa. I reported this to the car hire company and to the owners but so far no satisfactory explanation has been forthcoming. We have been visiting Northern Cyprus and Bellapais for some 15 years and have never encountered anything like this before. I hope this warning may prevent anyone else having the same problem.

Walnut, lemon, Orange & Apricot trees have been reduced Autumn 2015, still providing natural shade for those that wish it, plenty of sunshine for the others., Doggy on neighbours property has been re-housed elsewhere 2014. Car parking has never been an issue for any of our other guests in 12 years but it is a good idea to obtain a receipt of poof of payment - or one can park for free around the other side of the Ravine, a 5 minute walk which takes in the view and various cafe's - a perfect excuse to stop for a coffee and pick up some Wi-Fi!!

“Absolutely perfect for a relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 11 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Villa Ravine is in the most perfect location - easy access to local restaurants but still manages to be private. Fabulous views from the front terrace and bedrooms. Good sized pool (serviced twice a week by a very efficient and professional company) with shade from mature trees meant we spent a lot of time just lazing around. Well equipped kitchen made a change from the normal holiday let where you get 4 cups, 4 plates etc. Airy living room with plenty of seating was great in the evening for catching up on the lateset dvd releases (we managed to get dvds for films which aren't even on in the cinema yet in the UK). The neighbours and Fatima who looks after the villa were very friendly and couldn't have made us more welcome.
Joanna had sent us tips on the villa before we left for our holiday and coupled with the excellent guide she has in the villa meant that we had the benefit of great local knowledge and were able to make the most of our holiday. Rod had also recommended Bellapais Rent A Car to us and helped us organise our transfers I can't praise them highly enough - we were late leaving the airport as 1/2 our luggage was left in Istanbul and it was around 2am when we finally got out of the now closed airport in darkness but the driver was waiting for us, an absolutely charming man who was so helpful. They came to the villa the following morning to sort out the paperwork for the car hire - they arrived promptly at the time arranged so we didn't have to hang around. Thoroughly recommend them.
Rod and Joanna have a lovely villa and their help in organising our holiday from our first enquiry regarding availability has been invaluable and much appreciated. This has been the easiest and by far the best independent holiday we've ever had (even though some of our luggage had an exrended stay in Istanbul !)
