Only a short stroll from the center of the traditional village of Kritsa this is a beautiful old stone house in need of renovation with some truly unique features.
Kritsa is one of the oldest, largest and most picturesque villages in Crete. It?s built on a hill and surrounded by olive trees and beautiful countryside. The village of Kritsa is part of the municipality of Agios Nikolaos, 10 km away, and has about 2300 inhabitants including a few residents from Britain and other European countries
The house is on the corner of a small village street just off the village main street.
It comprises a large room that is divided by a large Kamara arch, a couple of steps lead up to another two good sized rooms (that could be made into bedrooms), a few steps down from the large room there is a room that was the old kitchen. A couple of wooden steps lead from the living room to a small balcony.
A wooden staircase leads from the living room up to one more room that could be made into a bedroom which has access to a very large flat roof that could easily be made into a nice roof terrace/BBQ area with very good views on to the Mirabello bay and the valley of Kritsa.
Less than ten minutes to the coastal town of Agios Nikolaos and dozens of sandy beaches.
50 minutes to the international airport of Heraklion.
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.
