This very old stone house was in recent years used as a factory for making traditional Cretan carpets and is situated at the edge of the traditional village of Kritsa. This area is peacefull, easily accessible and has nice views.
The house of 3 large rooms is 62sqm and on land measuring 98sqm. Another floor of 36sqm can be build on top of this property while leaving you a big balcony of 26sqm on top.
There is electricity and water in the building, and telephone lines are close by.
The old house needs to be renovated and could become a lovely family home with 2 or 3 bedrooms.
The village of Kritsa is one of the largest Cretan villages and is surrounded by beautiful mountainous countryside and olive groves.
The village has all basic amenities such as grocers, bakers, tavernas, cafes, etc. The cosmopolitan town of Aghios Nikolaos is a 12 minute drive away.
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.
