Fissi Villas is just a short drive away from Aghios Nikolaos. The seaside resort town of Aghios Nikolaos itself is just as lively out of season, with boutiques, supermarkets, tavernas, bars and cafes all open. Enjoy a coffee in the square or by the harbour in the warm sun and watch the world bustle by. The cinema shows all the most recent films in their original language. Without the extra volume of tourist traffic, driving becomes a relaxing pleasure. Depending on the month trips can be organized to a local raki still; another time you can assist in some olive picking and see the wonderful olive oil being produced. Or leave the superficiality and pressure of Christmas behind and enjoy low-key festivities in the sun.
Springtime is the perfect season for walking and you can find botanic beauties that are nowhere else in the world. The main Gorge Samaria is closed in the winter but there are plenty of others offering their footpaths for a long day hiking. All major museums and archeological sites are open to the public. Enjoy the real Crete in a lighthearted way and learn more about its people, history and culture.
Find sun, beaches, mountains, snow, hospitality, dramatic scenery, culture and a healthy Cretan cuisine. All the ingredients are here for an unforgettable time when you decide to spend your winter in Crete with us.
