A opportunity to own a unique hotel that is still family run and is ideally situated for travellers touring the karpaz area of Cyprus. The main hotel area was built many years ago and has immense charm and has retained all the traditional features including original flag stone floor, cane ceilings and thick stone walls. The bedrooms are situated in the annex of ten double en-suite bedrooms over two floors with the swimming pool and terrace just across the garden. A unique dining experience the Cave restaurant is also part of the hotel, steps lead down into the cave which has a bar and can seat up to 150 diners and currently caters for private parties, and this is just one of the quirky features of this unique hotel. The current owners have aimed for the more adventurous traveller and the hotel is closely linked to Bukkonuk the eco village that offers a range of traditional cultural and craft courses.



The Property


This unusual property is being sold as a going concern and while it is up and running the main hotel area would benefit from some sympathetic updating and redecorating. The annex was built a few years ago and the rooms are generously proportioned and include an en-suite shower room, the rooms are well maintained but again the showers are looking a little tired.

This is a unique feature, the ultimate in rustic dining. A wooden stair case leads down into the cave which has a bar built into one end, the floor has been flagged and the walls are stone. An ideal venue for private parties and themed events.


The Villages


Kumyali village

The village is just 30 miles (40km) away from Famagusta City and 40 miles (50km) from the International Airport of Ercan. The picturesque fishing harbour at Bogaz is just 20km away and can be reached in less than 20 minutes. The roads are of an excellent standard with no heavy traffic at any time of the year. Surrounded by Olive groves and orchards it is in the most serene of settings, close by to the village itself is a lovely sea side promenade with a golden sandy beach and a small fishing harbor.

Although it is in a rural position, close by there are two supermarkets and a petrol station, and there is a choice of excellent restaurants both along the main road that by passes the village as well as at Dipkarpaz to the north and Bafra and Bogaz to the south.


At the start of the Karpaz peninsula, Buyukkonuk benefits from fertile flatlands and crops grown there include wheat, barley, and several types of vegetables. It is also rich in carob and olive trees, as well as mulberry, almonds and figs. You can pick your own olives, get them pressed at the local olive mill and take home your own oil. The ancient Karpaz settlement of Buyukkonuk has been selected as the first eco-village in North Cyprus to help counteract the growth of mass tourism. The scheme aims to preserve the village's local culture in an environmentally sensitive way, and promote the area as a destination for special activity holidays. It is hoped that the initiative will encourage community life in the village to continue, while raising awareness among villagers about the importance for caring for the countryside.

The Karpaz Area

We believe it is best discribe the Karpaz area as two regions from Bogaz to Yenierenkoy and Yenierenkoy to the tip. Between Bogaz and Yenierenkoy the terrain is less rugged and the area is populated with a sprinkling of villages, and Farming communities, the main villages being Mehmetcik, Barfa and Kumyali. Mehmetcik sits high on a hillside and has the most spectacular views of the picturesque valley below with the sea in the distance. The village is famous for its grape growing and the production of an assortment of traditional sweets made from grape juice. Bafra until recently was a small sleepy farming community, now it is a hive of activity with 2 large 5 star hotels built on the magnificent sandy beach, with more hotels planned it is set to become the Las Vagas of Northern Cyprus.
