Kritsa is one of the oldest, largest and most picturesque villages in Crete. Ita€;™s built on a hill and surrounded by olive trees and beautiful countryside.
The house is an old stone building with good sturdy walls and wooden features.
It is possible to make this into a comfortable one or two bedroom house with a possibility for a large roof terrace with amazing views on to the Mirabello bay and the surrounding mountains.
The house is close to the main road providing easy access and has access to all services including water, electricity, sewage and internet.
Only a 10 minute drive to the coastal town of Agios Nikolaos and to many sandy beaches.
The international airport of Heraklion is a 55 minute drive from Kritsa.
Agios Nikolaos is the capital of the county Lasithi and is located at the Mirabello Bay, north-east Crete, only 45 mins away from the international airport of Heraklion.
Geographically the town is well protected from strong winds allowing sea sports and swimming nearly all year round
Although Agios Nikolaos has a population of less than 20,000 it has several banks, supermarkets, shops of every kind, doctors, a modern hospital of high standard, public swimming pool and tennis courts, yacht marina, harbour, cinema, theatre, gyms, a 9-hole golf course, schools ranging from nurseries to 6-level high school and generally all the amenities you would expect to find in a modern European town.
The microclimate is one of the best in Greece and the moderate temperatures rarely exceed 30c in summer or fall below 15c in wintertime. This wonderful dry climate together with the natural beauty of the area has attracted most of the high class hotels of Greece to operate here.
