Limnes is one of the favorite villages among ex-pat home buyers in our area due to its proximity to the province capital Agios Nikolaos, the picturesque local architecture, the beauty of the natural surroundings and the local hospitality and generosity.
The neighboring villages of Houmeriakos and Nikithiano are within walking distance and the small town of Neapolis, where you will find many shops, hospital, services etc. is only 2 miles from Limnes.
A reliable local bus service with buses going to Agios Nikolaos and the island capital (airport) of Heraklion every hour is very near the house.
Heraklion is less than an hours drive from Neapolis.
Agios Nikolaos is the capital of the county Lasithi and is located at the Mirabello Bay, north-east Crete, only 50mins 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 a 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 large 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.
