Villa Location
Villa Alexis House is located in the village of Kalo Horio - meaning good or nice village - and is representative of many Cretan villages with one narrow main street and a few alleys branching off. About a 5 minute drive away is the resort of Istron where there is a selection of bars, restaurants and a sandy beach. Aghios Nikolaos is easily accessible and is well worth visiting, as is the upmarket resort of Elounda. The house is in a great spot for exploring the east of the island.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

A selection of mini markets in the resort of Istron provide all the day to day necessities. For more variety, larger supermarkets can be found on the outskirts of both Aghios Nikolaos and Ierapetra. The local market day in Aghios Nikolaos is Wednesday morning and the market in Ierapetra is on Saturday morning. The markets predominantly sell local fruit, vegetables and cheeses as well as linens and some clothes.


Bars and restaurants

The nearby village of Pyrgos has a small traditional Kafenion (café bar) where visitors can taste traditional Greek coffee. Istron has a great selection of tavernas that serve both local and international cuisine. There is also an array of bars and cafes if you are wanting just a cool refreshment or a light bite to eat.


Beaches

Three of the best blue flag beaches in the area are just a 5 minute drive from Villa Alexis House. There is Aghios Panteleimonas with the church on the headland. The beach is sand and shingle and has sunbeds and umbrellas. Just along the main road is the beach of Voulisma or Golden Beach with its fine white sand and beach bar. In the other direction, take the old road towards Aghios Nikolaos where you shall reach Karavostasi Beach - locally known as 'Stone Beach' - and Marias Kantina.


Family fun

You can snorkel at the beach of Karovostasi which is a mix of sand and pebble. You can also learn to dive at the centre on the beach at Istron Bay Hotel. What holiday would be complete without a trip to a water park? Whether it's the adrenaline rush of the Black Hole or floating around in the wave pool, the water park will be a fun day out.


Places of interest

Aghios Nikolaos is the main town and according to local myth has a bottomless lake. A trip to Spinalonga should not be missed. This is a very small island near to Elounda where you can take a ferry from either Aghios Nikolaos, Elounda or Plaka and visit the island and the village. Drive up towards Kalamfka and stop at the viewing area where you can see both the Cretan Sea to the north and the Libyan Sea to the south. Those interested in archaeology should not miss the opportunity to visit Knossos in Herkalion and Zakros on the far eastern side of the island. Both very important and equally fascinating.


Golf

The main 18-hole golf course is located just outside the resort of Hersonissos. More local there is a 9-hole at the Elounda Porto Hotel.


Remember…

Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.
