This is a very large freehold building plot at the coast of the picturesque Gulf of Mirabello, with a shoreline of approximately 440m around a small private bay, very near the coastal village of Pachia Ammos.
The land measures 12.7 hectares (127,000m2) of which 80,000m2 are cleared of forestry; the other 47,000m2 are in the process of obtaining the necessary forestry certificate. It is possible to build up to 16,000m2, plus basements, terraces, swimming pools, garden areas, parking spaces etc. on the 80,000m2 portion. This, combined with its advantageous and attractive location makes this plot of land ideal for the development of a good sized hotel resort.
The land has good road access (the national road that leads from Agios Nikolaos to Ierapetra/Sitia is only 50m away) and electricity, water and phone lines with broadband internet are also nearby and would be easy to connect.
The village of Pahia Ammos with its attractive beach is a short walk away from the plot and is known for its large sandy beach and excellent fish restaurants. There are many shops and amenities in the village which is vibrant all year round as it is a favourite destination for the neighbouring towns local residents.
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 high school and generally all the amenities you would expect to find in a modern European town.
