North Cyprus Villas...a Different Side Of Cyprus Awaits You

Jan 31, 2008
As far as religion is concerned, North Cyprus remains neutral and this has developed it into a very cosmopolitan region. After Sardinia and Sicily, Cyprus is the 3rd largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and it can be positioned at about 65 km south of Turkey. Other countries close by to Cyprus include Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Israel and Greece.

In 1974 Cyprus was divided into 2 countries with the Turkish Cypriots living on the north and the Greek Cypriots in the south. Real estate tends to be a lot more cheaper in the North than anywhere else in the Mediterranean Sea, so you will always be able to find a bargain there or a cheap rental.

The shape of Cyprus is due to the side pressures formed during different geological ages. Capes have arisen where the land has been strong enough to the sea's erosion and Gulfs created where the land could not stand up to the effects of the sea's erosion.

There are in fact 2 capes being the Zafer Cape; which is situated on the tip of the Karpaz peninsula, and the Korucam Cape which is found in the west of the island. There are also 2 gulfs located in Guzelyurt and Famagusta and with such beautiful natural scenery, North Cyprus has become a very popular tourist destination filling up the villa rental homes throughout the year.

The most prominent feature of North Cyprus is the range of mountains situated in the northern region, known as the Kyrenia Mountains, or Five Finger Mountains. It is a narrow range and is approximately 130 km long. It runs parallel to the coastline and occupies an area of about 260 sq km. This range is composed predominately of limestone, dolomite, and marble. Many North Cyprus Villas can be found to be located around this range. These villas allow one to view the beauty around and they are economical too.

The largest spring in the North Cyprus is in this range near Five Finger Mountains. The fertile north coast is chiefly covered with olive and carob trees. Villas are also located all around over this place. Most of these villas also give the view of the Mesaoria plain, which lies in the centre of the island, between the Kyrenia Mountains and the Troodos Mountains in the south.

You will find North Cyprus villas located on the northern and eastern coast lines which truly have a great advantage point when it comes to views of the blue Mediterranean waters. You will find small coves and bays along this stretch of coast where both swimming and sunbathing can be enjoyed to a maximum. If you aren't really a beach person then don't worry as the North Cyprus Villas also offer private Swimming pools.

North Cyprus is without a doubt the place to choose as your next holiday destination, with all those wonderful views, places of interest and an all year round temperature which puts Cyprus in a league of its own. Check out the villas in North Cyprus and come and discover the different side of Cyprus.
