Villa Argus is a sleek and modern three-bedroom villa that accommodates up to five guests in the heavenly seclusion of Agios Nikolaos, a charming Greek town on the east coast of Crete. This villa boasts a private secluded waterfront location overlooking Mirabello Bay, and stone pathways are leading down to the sea below for swimming off the rocks.

The villa is part of a complex, which means you get the best of both worlds – your own private home from home and full use the extensive facilities, including a spa and restaurants. Alternatively, you can stay at the villa and appreciate the focus on modern living, with slide-away doors that lead onto a private hydro-massage swimming and a peaceful garden terrace with chairs, a dining table and a BBQ. All these places are afforded ample shade thanks to the carefully considered architecture.  

The villa houses a fully equipped kitchen and spacious lounge and has the benefit of a dishwasher and washing machine. The three rooms include a master bedroom with superb sea views from the double bed and an en-suite marble bathroom with hydro-massage bath, separate shower, and two additional bedrooms, one with two twin beds and the other with one single bed – both sharing a marble bathroom with a shower and WC. Extra luxe facilities include bathrobes, towels, toiletries and slippers, and the villa has full Wi-Fi access and air conditioning in all rooms. 

We couldn’t be forgiven for not mentioning the maid service – seven mornings per week – and an option of ordering room-service breakfast too. With the complex facilities within a short walk, alongside trendy Agios Nikolaos, 1.5km away, you won’t be short of things to see and do in this idyllic part of Crete. You can hire bikes and explore the rugged coast, dine at one of the local taverns or go snorkelling or scuba diving in the crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea.

Agios Nikolaos, with its charming waterfronts, mountainous backdrop and laid-back vibe, is situated east of Crete’s capital Heraklion and north of the town Lerapetra and west of the town Sitia. A haven for lovers of nature, culture and good food, there are many remarkable places for you to see and visit including Lake Voulismeni – a small lagoon in the centre of the town, used as a harbour where fishing boats stop – or the quaint winding streets with local restaurants, shops and bars. 

For lazy afternoons spent by the sea, sandy Kitroplatia Beach is a perfect choice. This popular stretch of coastline boasts crystal clear waters and is an ideal choice for children and anyone looking for a beautiful and clean beach, close to all amenities of the town. There’s also Almyros Beach – this large sandy stretch is set in a closed cove, and the water is shallow so children can swim here safely.

From Agios Nikolas, you are well placed to drive to the island's capital Heraklion and immerse yourself in ancient culture. The vibrant port city is best known for the Palace of Knossos. The archaeological site dates back thousands of years to the Minoan civilisation. Guarding the city’s Venetian port is the 16th-century Koules fortress. A drive around Heraklion will also bring you to traditional villages, Medieval castles, Byzantine monasteries and secluded coves.

The Island/Getting There

The idyllic island of Crete is the kind of place to make all your dreams of a holiday in Greece come true. Crystal-clear blue waters, postcard-worthy seafront towns, history in spades and jaw-dropping landscape.

Take it easy on the terrace of your Cretan villa overlooking your own private pool with a glass of the enviable local wine, or crank it up on mountain bikes on a tour through the Samaria Gorge. Learn more about your ideal holiday in Crete with our comprehensive travel guide.

How to reach Crete island

There are two ways to reach Crete Island: either by flight or by ferry.
