Hotel Pia Bella

Hotel Pia Bella is a small, friendly and welcoming hotel, with a relaxed atmosphere due to its rare authentic charm, hospitality, comfortable design and prime location right near the centre of bustling Kyrenia. It is a 10 minute walk to Kyrenia Harbour, Kyrenia Castle and several shops, restaurants and the seafront are nearby. A stay at the Pia Bella hotel in Kyrenia ensures a pleasant holiday that will provide you with everything you need over the festive period.

Kyrenia

Sandwiched between the sea and the Five Fingers mountain range, the town of Kyrenia can trace back its DNA some 6,000 years. Today, terraced cafés, boutiques and local markets stacked with the local catch fight for your attention alongside boats bobbing on the water and the ancient castle. A quiet place to enjoy a cooling beer by day, the harbour livens up as the sun shuffles over the horizon. There is also a choice of late night bars along the seafront that play a variety of music to suit every preference.

Sleeping Beauties

By day, the fairy-tale castle of St. Hilarion, which is said to have inspired 'Sleeping Beauty', invites us to explore. Venture slightly out of town and you can also discover the charms of Bellapais village with its picturesque monastery on top of the hill. Dining here is a delight, and not just because of the views. Before you get to stand your teaspoon in a cup of Turkish coffee, open with a meze of Turkish Cypriot teasers. If you fancy treating your taste-buds even further, try kebabs straight from the clay oven or fresh sea bass off the barbeque.

Gratuities

There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below.

Your Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection to cover drivers, porters and hotel staff of €15.00 per week. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate add on.

Dress Code
Casual, cotton, lightweight daytime wear is the order of the day. Comfortable shoes are a must for sightseeing. Smart casual clothes will be ideal for the evening, with the emphasis throughout being informal but with no shorts or vests in the restaurants in the evenings. Early and late season evenings can be cool so do ensure that you take a cardigan or jacket and even some rainwear.
