We had not been to Northern Cyprus/TRNC before and Zamani did not disappoint. Located in an extremely peaceful area once we had located the villa we were amazed at the size and quality of the property. A stone wall & archway covered with bouganvillea greeted us and we parked in the large driveway which sweeps in with a stepped path leading up to the entrance. We were glad we had a 4x4 as we enjoy going out & about but you could use a taxi just as easily. The village is picturesque and only a couple of minutes walk. An impressive entrance with columns and large terracotta pots is met with ornate wooden doors opening into a marble floored hallway with sweeping staircase. A large archway give the property an open plan feel with a couple of steps leading down into a sitting room and bar area. Opening glass doors across the rear give views which are breathtaking. There is a seperate tv room if you feel the need (we didnt even turn it on) and a large downstairs bathroom with toilet and shower all tastefully decorated. The kitchen is well designed again with quality fittings and plenty of cutlery etc with a utility room to the side. A dining area adjoins the kitchen and doors open onto a lower terrace with an outside table and chairs which we used frequently. Upstairs the bedrooms are large and airey with air conditioning and bathrooms all tiled and decorated very tastefully.
Plenty of wardrobe space, mirrors, fans in all rooms. Balconies are all large and give far reaching views especially the huge roof terrace great for stargazing. The pool has an outside shower area, sunbeds and is graced by a chiminea. This is a 5* villa but we gave 4* because we felt at least 1 of the many inside showers couldve been height adjustable
as the shower cubicle showers are at a set fixed height rather low for tall people, and the pool is smaller and a bit dated than others we have stayed at, this is in no way detrimental
to the the property and we enjoyed our stay at Zamani greatly and would highly recommend. Feel free to email me for any further information we may be able to help with.
