LAP073L2 Donums of land close to the sea £110,000In Northern Cyprus today, Lapta is famous for its orange and lemon groves, thanks to the abundant water from mountains springs that erupt from the rocks all over town. The town irrigation system also waters the olive trees that cling to the hillside. The road to Lapta winds up from the main North Cyprus coast road through sharp twists and turns that make the journey seems a lot further than the actual distance of around 2km.The town of Lapta lies on several levels, consisting of natural terraces on the side of the mountain overlooking the sea. The terraces are evidence of differing sea levels over the centuries, and are broken up by deep ravines and rocky outcrops, where erosion has worn away the terraces. It was one of writer Lawrence Durrell's favourite villages in Northern Cyprus, which was famous for its silks, cloths and pottery.There is a lively tourist 'strip' and residential tourism has spread down from the coast road to the sea. The recently finished part of the Lapta coastal walkway links two picturesque coves.Lapta has several pretty churches, not all of which are open or in a particularly good state of repair. However, the Ottoman stone mosque in Lapta is a classic example of the style, complete with minaret, hexagonal hall and a dome.
