Renaissance Residence: The perfect place to renew your batteries

The summer holiday is over and, as the nights draw in and workplaces return to their autumn routines, everyone needs a place to renew their batteries. The Renaissance Residence is just that.

The development, nestled next to the Mediterranean Sea, is just 450 metres from the beach – but, if it weren’t for the bucket-and-spade territory on your doorstep, you might not even make it that far.

“Every metre in the residency is carefully planned and tends to provide everything without a need to go elsewhere,” explains developer GTR Development.

The company should be taken at its word: the resort consists of 274 luxury apartments over three buildings, offering panoramic windows and large terraces overlooking the coast – and the many facilities available within arm’s reach. Indoors, a spa and wellness centre, plus yoga facilities, provide the chance to get in shape, while a heated indoor pool and sauna and steam room are an opportunity to unwind. To take your mind off day-to-day chores, there is also a grocery store on-site, a 24/7 concierge and laundry service, as well as a pharmacy and first aid station.

Even if your batteries are solar-powered, Renaissance Residence has you covered: the area boasts 340 days of sunshine a year, far more than you get in London (61), Cardiff (64) and Edinburgh (59) and even outperforming California’s San Diego (146).


Where can you find such a sunny escape? The answer is one of the world’s overlooked destinations: Iskele in Northern Cyprus. The region is “rapidly gaining in popularity”, says GTR, thanks to its friendly community and healthy climate, as well as its sandy beaches. There is an international vibe to the place: 63,000 university students are now registered to study in the area from 130 countries, with the judicial system based on the English legal system and, indeed, English widely spoken. With property values enjoying “steady increases”, GTR hails the region as ideal for holiday, investment and permanent residence.

Tempting buyers and tourists to stay for longer is the pollution-free environment and abundance of local historical landmarks. Even kids are catered for with four outdoor swimming pools, including one equipped with water slides. An open-air cinema and Mediterranean garden complete the package, with Wi-Fi everywhere for those who cannot switch off from the wider world. Switching off, though, is the order of the day, with a 7% NET rental income and up to 11% ROI every year assuring the replenishment of even the most discerning investors’ wallets. Renewing their batteries? That’s just a bonus.


Units at the Renaissance Residence are available with a flexible payment plan over several interest-free installments.
