Picky, Picky, Picky
Cyprus relies on Tourists for 50% of their economy. The tourists are not coming in the normal numbers. There are so many beautiful villas to rent at very good prices. When you travel with a party of 8 a villa is much cheaper then a hotel. Juergen is getting very picky about just what he wants for a vacation home. I think we are starting to settle on Northern Cyprus. The views are so amazing, and the villas so much larger and private then the very popular South. I have inquired about a few places. I like this one the best. I don't know if it is available but it has a nice web site. You can get a virtual tour. My favorite spot is the sun porch on the 2nd floor (1st floor if you are in Europe). The view is wonderful and I could just see Rick and Nicole painting there. This house also has a private beach. Imagine...a private beach on the Mediterranean. So I am waiting for an answer from the owner. If not this house then one almost as nice. What a privilege and joy to plan this amazing trip!
UP DATE - It is not available but I may have found something else that is very nice (understatement).
