Villa Lembos opened in 2009 and has nine individual bungalow-type buildings which are set within some beautifully landscaped gardens. One section of the gardens is dedicated to growing fresh, organic vegetables, which guests get to enjoy at breakfast, lunch or dinner.
The nine white-washed bungalows are very spacious and can each easily host 2 guests with space to spare for additional guests as required. Three of the nine bungalows have been specifically designed for families and have additional facilities to suit families needs. Outside each of the bungalows is several seats in the shade of a tree, where one can sit and think; read a book; or just watch the shepherds pass the gates with their herds.
Coskun and his family invite you to share in their lives whilst staying at Villa Lembos. The staff members are his family with some little other help from village people. From the moment you enter the gates of this guesthouse you will be made to feel like 'family' and nothing will be too much trouble.
This accommodation provider has taken action to address one or more issues (whether environmental, social or cultural) which will contribute positively to the long term viability of the destination and hence their site displays a Caring for the destination rating.
Main area of focus in Caring for the Destination:
The Karpaz area is the focal point of responsible tourism in North Cyprus, and many of the accommodation providers in the Karpaz area take steps to support this type of tourism. This is especially prominent in accommodation providers who are based in the villages of Dipkarpaz and Buyukkonuk.
The villa Lembos is an active member of the Karpaz Eco Tourism Union, of which Kaleidoskop Turizm is also an associate. As a member of this union, VIlla Lembos helps to support responsible tourism activities in the Karpaz through eco, rural and agri-tourism related activities.
Detailed description of the Caring for the Destination Initiative:
Moving from farming to tourism has meant little change in the Gungor's family's way of life as they continue to produce organic food stuff for the village and their guests. Everyone who works in the complex is local and there is a sense of community in everyone you meet. Everything you want to know about the area will be supplied to ensure that you get to know and love the area that is home to these warm-hearted, friendly people.
