Villa Helen is a luxury three-bedroom villa in sun-kissed Crete, Greece. This modern, family-friendly villa perfectly combines peaceful seclusion with high-quality facilities and offers breath-taking views of Mirabello Bay. The most notable features include a private pool with a hydro-massage jet, access to a serene spa and steps leading down to the sea where you can swim and snorkel from the rocks. 

Enclosed with a rustic stone wall and costal facing, this villa is both private and serene. Stepping through the glass doors outside, you’re greeted by the pool area and sun terrace with plenty of places for you to relax in the sun or the shade. Take a cooling dip in the crystal waters, delve into a good book on one of the sun loungers or enjoy dining al fresco on the veranda with BBQ facilities and a dining table and chairs overlooking the coastline. 

The villa is decorated contemporary in style with light white-washed walls and modern furnishings. Sleeping up to five guests and one baby, there’s a master bedroom with spectacular sea views, two twin rooms and a single room – all with comfortable beds and plenty of wardrobe space. There’s also a fully-equipped kitchen and an open-plan lounge area with a TV and DVD and CD player. Plus, let’s not forget the air conditioning, Wi-Fi and towels, slippers and bathrobes provided. 

As part of a wider complex, during your stay at Villa Helen, you have access to the complex’s top-notch facilities. You can unwind in the spa and have a massage or head to one of the restaurants and bars for a drink and a bite to eat. With a maid service and option to order breakfast in, Villa Helen has thought of everything for a stress-free stay in an idyllic sun-kissed Mediterranean location.

Located east of Crete’s capital Heraklion and north of the town Lerapetra is the charming town of Agios Nikolaos. It’s famous for its beautiful sandy beaches, picturesque waterfronts and welcoming atmosphere. Perfect for a variety of ages and families, friends and couples alike, there are many things for you see and do here. 

In Agios Nikolaos, you can explore the winding streets and browse the local shops, selling everything from handmade China to clothes and souvenirs, or head to Lake Voulismeni – a small lagoon in the centre of the town, which is used as a harbour and is where fishing boats stop. There are also plenty of restaurants, bars and tavernas for stopping for a refreshing drink or a bite to eat. 

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

From Agios Nikolas, you are well placed to discover 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.
