Northern Cyprus "is one of the Med's last unsung holiday destinations", says the Daily Mail -- that means unspoilt beaches, fewer visitors and great value for money. This holiday from Cyprus Paradise is a case in point. For £259 per person -- up to 46% less than packaging it yourself -- you get a week in pretty Kyrenia with all of this included:
The Hotel Pia Bella is a short walk from Kyrenia harbour, which Lonely Planet "ranks as Cyprus' most beautiful vista". The magazine recommends driving along the north coast from Kyrenia to Davlos to "catch the last of how Cyprus used to be: green, empty fields and a few village houses; unpicked olives soaking up the sun".
Set in landscaped gardens, the hotel -- which has a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2013 -- has two outdoor swimming pools and a Jacuzzi. Dining options include the main Mezzanine restaurant, a terrace overlooking the gardens and an à la carte restaurant that serves seafood and Cypriot cuisine.
