Discover boutique hotels in Ilgaz, Northern Cyprus, Cyprus
Pretty village Ilgaz is in the tree-covered Besparmak hills of Northern Cyprus, a short skip from mediaeval castle ruins, archaeological sites and rolling vineyards. Wake up with rich Turkish coffee or cups of potent tea in the local café (you can spy the sea from its terrace), or wander Kyrenia’s old harbour. Then settle back into your boutique hotel, and raise a toast the mountains with a glass or two of the local wine….
