Where is it ?
The village of Mehmetcik sits high on a hillside in the Karpaz Pennisular and has
the most spectacular views of the picturesque valley below with the sea in the distance.
Mehmetcik which translated means ‘little solder’ is a traditional Turkish village
and is famous for growing grapes which villagers export to other areas of Cyprus.
Its well-known grape festival is during the summer and people travel from the surrounding
area to spend time enjoying this festival. The Village and its inhabitants are also
well-known Zivania and Sucuk producers a traditional sweet made from grapes. Mehmetcik
is a good sized friendly village with a host of shops and all the amenities day to
day living. The local council run beach is at Bafra just a few minutes’ drive down
the hill, you will need to arrive early at the weekends as this gently sloping beautiful
golden sandy beach is very popular with locals and tourists alike.
The village is well positioned for access to attractions such as the Karpaz Gate
Marina which is an easy drive away, and new road links bring all destinations including
Kyrenia within easy reach. A new golf course is under construction at Bafra which
will add further to property values in the area.
