FANTASTIC HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We have just enjoyed a two week stay in a fantastic apartment, that was tastefully decorated and furnished. The views from the balcony were stunning. The locality was perfect, so close to the beach, restaurants and cafe bars. Ellen is a wonderful lady, who was very helpful without interfering in our holiday. We have been to Ag Nic many times and this was by far the most enjoyable. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone. So good in fact we have already booked for next year.

A PERFECT HOLIDAY!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for four nights at the Chrysso apartment at the beginning of June 2012 and it completely surpassed all of our expectations; we only wish we could have stayed longer!

The apartment has been renovated to a very high standard, it is stylishly furnished, spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. The welcome pack provided on our arrival was particularly welcome and thoughtful. The view from the apartment balcony is beautiful, looking out over the bay and nearby beach and was spacious with doors opening onto it from both the living area and the bedroom.

The apartment is very conveniently located close to the beach, tavernas, bars and shops. As the resort of Agios Nikolaos is fairly compact, everything is easily reached on foot and we enjoyed walking to the Marina around the headland and to the lake.

There were a wide variety of tavernas to choose from and the food was of a high standard; we particularly enjoyed the Du Lac restaurant and Ofou To Lo overlooking the beach. We also enjoyed cocktails at Mocca overlooking Kitroplatia beach and at Alexandros rooftop bar which overlooks the lake.

Lastly, but by no means least, we found the people of Agios Nikolaos so friendly and genuinely nice wherever we went which really helped to make the holiday so enjoyable. Maria and Ellen, the apartment owner, were so lovely and helpful and always eager to answer our queries and give advice.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and certainly plan to return!”

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in this apartment by Kitroplatia beach during our stay at the end of March 2012. The apartment is newly renovated and the interior design especially tasteful. It is very comfortable and we had everything we needed (and more). The large, sheltered balcony is south-facing, which meant we could sit out enjoying temperatures of around 20°C even in March.

The location is excellent, right next to Kitroplatia beach, which has several good restaurants (we particularly liked the fish restaurant at the opposite end of the beach). The centre of Agios Nikolaos and the lake are just a few minutes’ walk away. Agios Nikolaos is an excellent base for exploring the central and eastern parts of Crete, including the nearby mountains.

Joop and Maria were very helpful in meeting us, showing us the apartment and giving us tips on the area. The service included cleaning halfway through the week.

We can highly recommend this apartment.

Owner's Response: We were glad we could finish the apartment in time for the season. It was lovely to decorate it and make sure that the guests feel like being at home. Greece is wonderfull but Agios Nikolaos and Elounda are paradise.

The funny thing is that, when you put a lot of effort into the renovation and decoration, choosing the right beds, taking nice and warm colours, you immediately attract people who have the same tast regarding these subjects. The pictures are of course of great help!

We moved 6 years ago from the Netherlands and Belgium to this fantastic region. We do not regret it one minute. The mediteranean way of living contributes so much to life although we came from well organised countries, in compare to Greece sometimes a bit too organised. This will be the main reason why we love it here so much.

Kitroplatia is so centrally located that you could even think of going to Agios by bus and not taking a car. There is a direct busconnection from the airport of Heraklion to Agios Nikolaos which takes about one hour and 7 euro per person. If you want to make excursions and want to do shopping you are depending on a car.

We look forward meeting you in Agios Nikolaos!

IN AGIOS NIKOLAOS KIES JE VOOR DIT APPARTEMENT!

  • 5 of 5
Om maar met de deur in huis te vallen: een vakantie op Kreta in dit appartement is zéér zeker een aanrader.
In de zomer van 2011 hebben we met 4 personen (vader, moeder en 2 tienerdochters) genoten in dit appartement. Niet groot, maar wel comfortabel en een zeer goede ligging t.o.v. restaurants, winkels en vertrekpunt voor trips. Maar vooral: zeker dichtbij het strand.
Vanaf het balkon kijk je direct over de baai van Mirabello en zie je het strand liggen op nog geen 80 meter. Ideaal voor een (snelle) verfrissende duik en zonnebaden op het knusse strandje.
Het is heerlijk zitten op het balkon met uitzicht op Agios en de baai, waar je cruiseschepen voorbij ziet varen, en genieten kunt van de live music bij de tavernes onder het balkon. Vanaf 0.00 uur wordt het rustig in Agios.
Zonder auto kun je je in Agios prima vermaken: uit eten, winkelen, zwemmen, excursies of gewoon tot rust komen.
Wanneer je toch een auto huurt (je kunt parkeren bij het appartement) is Agios een prima startpunt voor dagtrips naar het noorden (Heraklion en Knossos), oosten (Sitai en Vai), zuiden (Ierapetra aan de Libische Zee), westen (Lasithi plateau).
Iedere week wordt het appartement schoongemaakt, ook als je langer dan 1 week blijft. Handdoeken en beddengoed wordt dan ook vervangen. Veel bagage hoeft niet meegenomen te worden: de aanwezige wasmachine zorgt voor schone kleding.
Dus, waar wacht je nog op? Kijk wanneer dit appartement nog vrij is en boek je reis!

WHAT A VIEW!!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment almost has it all. It is ideally situated for people who don't want to hire a car, being within very easy reach of two beaches (one sandy and one shingly), good restaurants and bars. It is also also within easy reach of the centre of Agios (a couple of minutes walk) but is away from the nosier bar areas.
It has every facility within the apartment that you would need, other than a dishwasher, but as it's really only for 2 people this isn't a major problem.
Just about all the furniture and equipment is from IKEA and makes the apartment very modern looking. It has been decorated simply but to a very high standard.
The owner, Joop, was extremely helpful during our stay and gave us good advice on local restaurants, places to visit and arranged car hire for us for the last few days of our stay. He also gave us a lift from the airport when we arrived although this was because he was arriving back in Crete at more or less the same time as us - it's not part of the normal service but indicates just how helpful he was!
If there was one small drawback it was the lack of air conditioning or some sort of air circulation system (a ceiling fan in the bedroom?) which may be a problem in the high season, although the constant breeze on the island allowed us to keep the apartment cool enough to be comfortable.
The view from the apartment is stunning and sitting on the settee in the living area and looking out through the front doors, you could imagine being on board a ship!
All in all, we would highly recommend this property for 2 persons, although it will sleep 4 by converting the settee to a bed.

Owner's Response: Thanks again for writing a review! Now we got one in German (sorry Swiss) and one in English (sorry Welch). This helps a lot for future guests so they know what to expect. Due to these remarks we bought two towers, one for the bedroom and one for the living room which produces cold air. We will see how the Belgian people who are in now react to this improvement. We also had some requests from Dubai about air circulation, so we will inform them about this solution.

Although people who come from Western Europe still consider the Greek food to be cheap, we know that we should divide the restaurants in those that are there especially for tourists and those that are visited mainly by Greek people. These are the places to be! It gives you the feeling learning to know the people and the country and you will also be surprised by the service and sincere friendliness of the Greek. By the way the food is remarkably good and healthy and even if you have to be careful not eating too much there is still a lot of choice within your diet.

We got also very positive feedback about Almira beach which is just outside Agios. From the apartment it is a 10 minutes drive and we heard stories like Caribbean white beaches with spectacular views and very nice trendy bars with young friendly staff. This is the beach where a sweet water river comes into the sea. Local people often go to the so called river beach.
This sweet water river is extremely cold and it meets the warm sea, amazing.

Thanks again and hope to see you soon again!

BEWERTUNG

  • 5 of 5
Da wir die ersten Gäste in der neuen Ferienwohnung waren, möchte ich die Wohnung kurz kommentieren.
Nach Ankunft mit dem Bus hat uns Joop bei der Bus Station abgeholt und uns gleich mal durch das Städtchen gefahren um uns zu zeigen wo sich die Supermärkte, das Krankenhaus, Hafen, etc.. befinden.
Anschliessend haben wir dann die Wohnung bezogen. Die Lage ist ausgezeichnet, denn direkt vor dem Haus verkehren keine lärmigen Autos und innert weniger Gehminuten ist man im lebendigen Zentrum angekommen. Die Wohnung ist neu renoviert und sehr sauber. Der Balkon mit Blick auf den kleinen Strand ist herrlich zum frühstücken oder bei einem Glas Wein den Tag ausklingen zu lassen. Die Küche ist komplett und sehr zweckmässig eingerichtet. Besonders gefreut hat uns, dass uns Joop bereits ein frisches Brot, Käse und Wurst, ein paar Früchte, eine Flasche Wein und Wasser bereitgestellt hat. Auch hat er sich Zeit genommen, um unsere Fragen zu beantworten.
Die Wohnung wurde während unseres 12-tägigen Aufenthaltes zwei mal gereinigt.
Wir können die Wohnung und die Vermieter Joop und Ellen nur empfehlen. Besten Dank für Eure Mühe und den angenehmen Aufenthalt!

Owner's Response: Es ist wirklich schön das Kunden sich die Mühe geben nachher zu reagieren. Wie nützlich kann diese Information sein wenn mann noch nie in dieser Gegend war. Hoffentlich bekommen wir mehr reviews! Die Lage ist wirklich wunderbar vor allem weil mann keinen Wagen braucht. Macht mann Ausflüge dann geht es kaum ohne Mietwagen. An der anderen Seite der Wohnung, also die Bergseite, gibt es einen geräumigen Parkplatz und weitere Parkmöglichkeiten wo sogar im Hochsaison genügend Platz ist. Bustransport ist, sogar für West-Europäische Begriffe, ziemlich gut organisiert und sehr preisgünstig. Preisgünstig sind auch die Restaurants die wir sie empfehlen werden. Besuche nicht die Restaurants für Toeristen sondern die wo auch die Griechen hingehn und mann bekommt nicht nur super Essen aber auch noch das ursprungliche Griechenlandgefühl. Dieses Gefühl muss mann erleben um zu begreifen warum wir ausgewandert sind aus einen Superland wie die Niederlande.

Agios Nikolaos, capital of the Prefecture of Lasithi, is one of the most highly developed tourist towns in Greece.

It lays along the west of the Mirabello bay. The main road access of the island passes right outside the city limits, connecting it with Iraklion (66 km) to the west, Sitia to the east (70 km) and Ierapetra to the south (36 km).

Agios Nikolaos is the administrative, communications, cultural and commercial center of the Prefecture, with approximately 8500 inhabitants.

The climate in the area is mild with extremely low humidity. It is an ideal place to relax and recover one's energy.

The sea in Agios Nikolaos is superb and the surrounding area of the city is noted for its sandy beaches and beautiful bays. The landmark of the city is a small lake, known as 'Voulismeni' that is located in the center of the city, at the foot of the cliffs. Its shape is circular with a diameter of 137 m.

Other Activities: submarine excursions, historical sites, SPINALONGA, set of to NISI
