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 Aghios Nikolaos, 10 km away, and has about 2300 inhabitants including a few residents from Britain and other European countries. Kritsa is a bustling village with a great sense of tradition and a warm welcome for all visitors and foreign residents. Most amenities are on hand in the village including supermarkets, post office, newsagents etc. Keeping live stock and farming plots of land and olive groves is still the way of life for most of the residents.
Heraklion international airport is 70 km from Kritsa.
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.
