Bellapais village is one of the beautiful village of North Cyprus, I can say Its different, private, special village, there is a spirit, for this village, once you are there and start to walk you can feel the different, to seat under the Fig Tree, to have your Lemonade or Turkish Coffee, served by local Cypriot man, that is Cyprus that is Cypriot hospitality, always you will find warm smile and welcome.

Bellapais Monastery, also makes the village special, the view is amazing, Kyrenia is and all areas front of you, you will not want to leave bellapais abbey, why Lawrence Durrell fell in love with Bellapais village and couldn’t go elsewhere in Cyprus.
