Esentepe Property North Cyprus

Thinking of where to invest in North Cyprus?

One area which has seen a significant rise in popularity over the last 15 years or so is Esentepe, an area around 30 minutes east of Girne (Kyrenia).  Esentepe, (meaning windy hill), probably dates back to the Byzantine era when the village was first established, so is full of history too.

If you’re looking to invest in North Cyprus property then Esentepe is a place which will always tempt property investors.  Whilst Esentepe has a traditional village centre, located in the mountainside, a lot of this regions residential areas are based along the coastal areas.  Although only a short drive to the centre of Girne, Esentepe offers a laid back environment in which to live, which is all the more favourable with residences being developed close to the sea, offering a real Mediterranean lifestyle, whilst still retaining its rural and peaceful charm.
