The Karpaz Arch Houses was the first guesthouse to open in the Karpaz in 1990 and was established to encourage sustainable development in the region and to help maintain the traditional culture and character of the Dipkarpaz Village. The guesthouse proved to be successful, and over the years has expanded to include more rooms and a nearby restaurant that serves traditional Turkish and Cypriot dishes and sources many of its ingredients locally.
Currently, there are 16 traditionally furnished rooms all of which are simply decorated with hand-crafted linens and wooden or iron-wrought furniture. The rooms are situated within several separate stone-built houses all of which still have their traditional wooden beams and arched colonnades. With this blend of simplicity and authenticity, the Karpaz Arch Houses helps to perfectly maintain the character of this old Karpaz village.
The Karpaz Arch Houses is the perfect location for those looking for a relaxing couple of days away in the Karpaz but also for those more active holiday-types who enjoy walking, cycling, or wildlife-watching. The guesthouse has a few good-quality bicycles available for guests to use, and is also situated close to several different turtle nesting beaches and good bird-watching spots.
