Aghios Nikolaos is a beautiful sparkling seaside town in the Mirabello Bay on the north east coast of Crete, near the capital city of Heraklion. Thanks to this classy town's port heritage it boasts a certain buzzy cosmopolitan feel, although it enjoys a reasonably laid back atmosphere as well. The essence of this lovely destination concentrates on the waterfront of a magical lake where there is a line of colourful villas that house bars, tavernas, cafes and boutiques that spill onto a promenade. This is a lovely spot to people watch or contemplate the local fishermen at sunset while you savour some delicious local dishes. And there are some unmissable historic sites to explore including the Archaeology Museum, housing relics from 6000 years ago, and if you love music then the Ethnological Museum boasts some gorgeous musical instruments from the Renaissance.

There are numerous Blue Flag beaches to choose from, starting with the town beaches of Kitroplateia and Amos, where you can try out all kinds of water sports. For a more relaxed experience there is the eucalyptus backed Almyros beach, which is only a short stroll away from the town. Whether you’re a romantic couple or a family searching for child friendly villas to rent near the beachfront, the Aghios Nikolaos villas listed here should suit your requirements with the added advantage of being managed by their owner direct or property manager, ensuring you receive the lowest possible rates which will include any late deals or special offers.
