Ilgaz, Kyrenia District
Proud to be the Tripadvisor top rated villa in Northern Cyprus and awarded a Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence for 2014 as a result of consistently outstanding reviews, Villa Rockheart provides a luxurious level of accommodation combined with the comforts of home, giving you the ideal base for your holiday.. The wonderful location of the property cannot be exaggerated—the views in every direction are quite breathtaking. The phrase “million dollar view” could have been created for this property.

All of the downstairs rooms give access to the enormous, shaded terrace that runs the full length of the house. This spacious outdoor room has wonderful sea views and will become your favourite place to enjoy a cocktail while watching the sunset. The extra large 11m x 6m swimming pool is a lit for your enjoyment on warm summer nights. A R...

Interaction with guests
I am always available to help and advise and before you arrive at the villa I will send you a really full information pack which will help you plan sightseeing, activities, shopping, restaurant meals as well as tell you all about the villa and the island. I can also help you with airport transfers and car hire in Cyprus. My house manager, Marion, will call on you on your second day to make sure you have settled in ok and to introduce herself. She is available at any time by telephone and has lived in Cyprus for 20 years and is a wealth of knowledge. We are very keen that you have a fantastic holiday with us and will do everything in our power to achieve this.

We stayed at Villa Rockheart for just under a fortnight at the beginning of June this year. So first the basics; the beds are really comfortable, the a/c works in all the bedroms, the showers which have been the subject of a complete refurbishment produce...More

About the neighbourhood
Set high above the bustle of the coastal plain, Ilgaz is a tiny dream of a Cypriot village, a centre for walking the Besparmak (Five Finger) Mountains. On the mountainside just below the village, Villa Rockheart is perched over a green valley with spectacular and uninterrupted views running down to the sea, only five minutes drive away, and up into the mountains behind.
There is a restaurant/bar within a couple of minutes walk or it is 5 minutes drive to a wide choice including Cypriot, Chinese, French, Italian, Australian and Indian.
The nearest beach is about 5 minutes drive but there are a good choice within 10 minutes. Most with full facilities and watersports. Escape Beach is wonderful for families.
Mountain walks begin at the end of the garden and you can walk through the mountai...
Getting around
A dolmas (bus) can be flagged down outside the property which will take you to either Kyrenia or Lapta or stop at local beaches. It costs less than a pound and runs every hour. We also recommend that you rent a car during your stay to fully explore the island. The car can be delivered and collected from the villa and the rental company also offer airport transfers. I can advise on this. Taxis are easy to arrange and the villa has contact numbers for you to use.
