Agios Nikolaos, Grecja

Welcome to Aghios Nikolaos! If you are looking for the perfect location to explore hospitality, eat Cretan food and relax then you are in the right place.

To begin with it is located just 5 minutes walking distance from the bus station that can take you to the airport/port and also to other locations/villages/cities e.t.c

As mentioned before it is next to the lake (only 2 minutes walking distance) and all the main restaurants/bars/clubs of the city.

Our home is just 2 minutes away from the central hospital.

Since our home has a kitchen for your solely use, you can definitely visit the flee market that takes place every Wednesday in the street below (also in the same street below there is a Super Market from which you can help yourself anytime).

The closest beach is 10 minutes walking distance (Ammoudi) but there are more to visit in almost the same distance ( kitroplatia , gargadoros and posidonas beach ) and lot more with car in nearby region.SUMMER IN
CRETE:
During the summer months there are a lot of festivals concerning local monasteries, ancient temples and local products. For example the Eftazimo (traditional bread) festival in Kroustas, the Afentis Christ festival in Voulismeni (6 August) and celebrations for Mother Mary in August, in Neapoli (15 August).

SPRING IN CRETE:
Springtime is a perfect season for walking and you will find botanic beauties nowhere else to be found. You will enjoy the most attractive face of Crete, and it will offer you a carpet of flowers, high mountains capped with snow and villages that shows you daily life with all its social aspects. Snow falls in the mountain villages and the White Mountains are usually snow-covered from November to April.


WINTER IN CRETE:
Many visitors to Crete think that the island is only for summer holidays. But Crete is a perfect winter destination. By winter (November until late March). The island lies in the subtropical part of the Mediterranean and offers mild winters with many sunny days with pleasant temperatures. Mid October to Xmas is possibly the best time of year in the Southeast with consistently calm and sunny days.

The locals are "more alive" than in the summer, since there is lots of work to do in the olive groves, fruit gardens and buildings. The sheep graze the fresh green from the mountains. When coming to meet Cretan friendship there's no better season than the winter. Touring around with a car, walking the country side, biking, bird watching or just strolling through the cities will offer you a relaxed holiday.

In December and January, you can join the olive harvesting and follow the entire oil production from harvest to oil.


EASTER IN CRETE:
Easter is possibly the best experience you can have on Crete!
You can celebrate with the locals in Agios Nikolaos. The faithful start gathering round the lake at 11 p.m. on Easter Saturday in order to get the best viewing positions. The priests come to the lake from a nearby church around 11:30 and the service of the Resurrection is held on a special platform. The atmosphere is magic!


At midnight the chant “Christos Anesti” (Christ is Risen) is heard, and night turns to day as hundreds of fireworks are let off. At the same time the effigy of Judas, hanging on a raft in the middle of the lake, is set aflame.



September: Collection of vegetables
October: Planting garden, Preparation of grapes
November: Distillation of raki (traditional drink made of grapes)
December: Olive oil collection
January: Olive oil collection
February: Fruits and wild herbs collection

INTERESTING VILLAGES AND PLACES TO VISIT:


LASSITHI PLATEAU
Lassithi Plateau is one of the few areas in the Mediterranean with permanent inhabitants at an altitude over 800 metres. Have your camera loaded as there are many photo opportunities, especially early in the morning and in late afternoon. Dikteon Andron, the famous cave where Zeus was born, is located here. There are also many small villages on the plateau which maintain their traditional color and character. Don't hesitate to come out of your car and walk along the little streets. You will be rewarded with nostalgic sights of windmills and authentic farm living.


SPINALONGA - PLAKA - ELOUNDA
Spinalonga is a small island near Elounda in East Crete. It is also known as the Leper Island, as lepers from Crete and the rest of Greece were quarantined there until 1957. Spinalonga is the most visited archaeological site in Crete after Knossos. The strategic position of the rocky islet for the control and defense of Elounda harbour has marked it with a turbulent history of fierce battles and much human suffering.

ELOUNDA is located in east Crete, north of Agios Nikolaos and south of the seaside resort of Plaka. Elounda was once a picturesque fishing village in the lovely Mirabello Bay. In the hills around Elounda there exists a mineral unique to Greece, called “akonopetra” or whetstone, a type of fine emery used to make whetstones and emery paper to hone tools.

Once discovered by tourism, Elounda developed into a resort famous for its beautiful scenery and the luxury hotels which are still being built in the area. It is said to be the place with the most five-star hotels in Greece.
all over the world. This is also part of its magic, as many people dream of spreading their towel on the beaches of Elounda, where some famous person has been swimming.

VOULISMENI - FRARO – LATSIDA
A very nice walk for any visitor is the distance between Neapolis and the settlements of Fraro, Voulismeni and Latsida. In the mid way between Voulismeni and Neapoli, the settlement of Fraro is planted all over with trees and vineyards. It was first appreciated in the 13th century by the Franciscan monks who were looking for a suitable place to built their Catholic church. Voulismeni maintained its noble character for centuries and is up until today considered as one of the most beautiful and tidy villages. At the west side of the village there is the church of Agia Ekaterini of the Venetian period with exceptional sculpted icons.

Four hundred meters from the village at the foot of the mountain Kavalara you will find the Byzantine Church of the "Virgin Mary- the Vigliotissa", an old church destroyed by the Ottomans. Some ruins of the old cells are still saved and under the ruins there is a water spring.

Latsida, a small traditional and picturesque village, is at one kilometer westwards from Voulismeni.

VRAHASSI - SISSI - MILATOS
Seven kilometres from Neapoli is the settlement of Vrahassi spread out on the rocky slopes of Anavlohos. Vrachasi is a village of a few hundred people and typical of many around, but it has some interesting features and the traditional Cretan architecture is well preserved here. The main square of Vrachasi sits close to the road and has an excellent view into the valley below, through which passes the main highway between Agios Nikolaos and Heraklion.

Milatos Village is a picturesque community about a kilometer before the coastal Milatos settlement. Many Europeans have bought old village homes here, and refurbished them in the original style. Armed with a camera, a walk through the narrow village streets will provide you with many wonderful snap-shot memories of your holiday.

Milatos Cave
Lace up your sneakers and grab a flashlight and a bottle of water, and off you go to explore this very interesting site. Archaeological findings indicate that human activities in the cave date back to the Neolithic period.

HOUMERIAKO - FOURNI - KARIDI - MONASTERY ARETI - PLAKA - ELOUNDA
Houmeriako is eastwards from Neapoli in the valley of Mirabello and is spread onto 3 small hills. In the old days, it constituted the seat of the Municipality. It is one of the oldest villages in the area.

On this land many interesting churches are preserved: Agios Panteleimon, Agia Triada, Agios Georgios, Agios Kirikos and Agios Antonios. The "Romana Portella"(Roman Gate) that used to be the residence of some unknown sovereign, is an important monument.

Nikithiano is a settlement next to Houmeriako, at 2 km from Neapolis. Small and picturesque, this settlement is known for its windmills; 15 windmills in a straight line.

We reach the next village, Fourni, by going upward the slope. Fourni is constituted of 3 villages, Kastelli, Pano Horio and Kato Horio. The famous "School of Kerapolitissas" functioning in the past as the center for intellectuals.

Hardly one kilometer from Kato Horio is another settlement, “Dories” reporting to the Hellenic nation of Dories. In the next settlement of “Karidi” visitors could see the church of “Timios Stavros” (Holy Cross), the ruins of “Kardamoutsa” an old monastery as well as the Byzantine church of “Agii Apostoli” which has been qualified as archaeological because of its impressive murals.

At the end of the way we discover the historical abbey of "Areti”, dedicated to Saint Trinity and situated in the middle of a stony and arid valley planted with some olive trees, cypresses and almond-trees.
The Abbey was built during the Venetian period and has reached a big prosperity. It was the Seat of Bishops during the Ottoman domination. Today is completely restored and constitutes a unique attraction.

KOUROUNES - FRATHIA
Kourounes (carrion crows) is in the middle region of northern Mirabello, in a distance of 4 km from Neapolis.

Going north we reach the settlement of Frathia first and then the settlement of Perambela. Other smaller settlements next to Perambela, in a different and surprising landscape, are Petros, Peronides, Nofalias, Dilakkos, Adravatos, Romanos, Amigdalias, Souvlos and Finokalias.

THE ANCIENT CITY OF DRIROS
The first archaeological findings of this ancient city were discovered at the North-west side of Neapolis. Driros was completely unknown until 1855 when the plough of two farmers revealed the stone signboard with the oath of adolescents of Driros. This important finding was transported by the Turkish authorities to Heraklion and later to Istanbul. It’s an important archaeological site!

AGOROI - KOUNALI - TSAMBI - AGIOS ANTONIOS - ANOGIA
At the north side of Neapolis there is a road leading to small villages and settlements reaching down to the Cretan Sea. The visitor can access these villages from Milatos too. The first settlements are Kounali and Tsambi and then the small village of Agios Antonios. A bit further to the north we come upon the settlement of Anogia built on the slope of the mountain and not far from the sea. It’s a place known for its clean atmosphere. At the end of our way we face the splendid and unique view of the Cretan Sea and we can swim in the clear-crystal waters of this completely isolated beach.

The Plane Tree of Krassi
In the village square of Krasi, near Malia, there are three plane trees, trademarks of the village. The most important of them is the platan in the center of the square, which is considered to be the oldest and most majestic of the plane trees in Crete.

The Olive Tree of Azorias - Kavousi village
he legendary olive tree in Azorias is located 1 km south of the village Kavoussi and very close to the homonymous archaeological site of Azorias. This olive tree is a natural monument; it is the oldest olive tree in the world! Indeed, it is grafted on a rootstock of a wild olive tree, making it the oldest sample of grafting in the world.

The tree is located on the site of Azorias, on the road leading to the settlement Avgos. It belonged in 2008 to George Grammatikakis and it is a tree of Olea europea, of the variety Mastoeidis, locally named "mouratoelia".

KROUSTAS
Kroustas is a small village close to Agios Nikolaos on the island of Crete, Greece. Kroustas is known for its magnificent view of Mirabello Bay. It is also known for its traditional cuisine including myzithropites (special cheese pies), ftazymo bread and aiga vrasti (boiled goat).

Characteristic of Kroustas is the smell of Raki distillery in October, the dry but cool summers, the dry and rocky landscape and the old ladies with the black scarfs and the wrinkled faces. What could you buy from Kroustas? Pure food like honey, almonds, walnuts, myzithra (soft sour cheese) and raki (locally distilled spirit).

KROUSTAS FOREST HISTORICAL LANDSCAPE PARK
One of the rare forests of eastern Crete was first systematically settled and intensively used by man about four thousand years ago. In the older Minoan Palace period (ca. (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) BCE) many agricultural installations (pens, enclosure walls) and house foundations were built with large blocks and are visible on the surface until today. The park offers marked paths through the forest along which many of the - unexcavated so far- Bronze Age ruins can be visited.

KRITSA
An alive village of Crete just at 9 km. from Agios Nikolaos.
Kritsa first became inhabited in Minoan times, and its inhabitants are considered direct descendants of the ancient Cretan city Lato.
During the Middle Ages and until the more recent times, Kritsa was the biggest village of Crete, with its 40 churches, extended on the entire south-west coast of Mirabello gulf until the plateau of Dikti.

PANAGIA KERA
8km from Αghios Nikolaos and 1km from Kritsa, is found the tripartite Byzantine church of Panagia Kera. One of the most ancient churches in Crete, dedicated to Virgin Mary, Saint Anna and Saint Antonios.

The church celebrates on August 15.

KRITSA - KATHARO PLATEAU
16 km from Kritsa and 25km from Aghios Nikolaos, you will find the plateau of Katharo at 1200m on the foot of Lazaros. Katharo is fertile territory and holds shady Holm oaks, a wellknown target for Greeks and foreign climbers and nature lovers.

Gorge of Kritsa
The gorge of Kritsa begins at the north-eastern exit of the historical village of Kritsa and ends up at a flat area 2,5 kilometres to the north. Continuing in the watercourse from this point, one arrives at the entrance to the second section of the gorge, which is a lot more difficult. After a tiring climb, it leads to the foot of the Tsivi peak, over Katharo plateau.
