Villa Nikolas and sister villa Grace are located next to each other providing the perfect luxurious retreats for larger families. Together, these villas occupy one of the best locations on Crete’s Akrotiri Peninsula; Creamy white against the deep blue Mediterranean sky and set right on the craggy cliffs.

Huge picture windows make the most of the fantastic sea side views and immaculate landscaped gardens. Outside, there are several terraces and seating areas as well as a stunning infinity pool that’s beautifully lit at night. Brushed steel and glass handrails provide a nautical flavour, enhanced by sleek poolside loungers and a semi-circular balcony that leads out from the first floor master bedroom.

On the ground floor is a light-filled open-plan kitchen/dining room/lounge with floor-to-ceiling patio doors opening onto the poolside terrace. An outdoor dining suite offers a shady alternative for casual meals, cooled by the occasional sea breeze while the kitchen is appointed to the highest of standards, with all the latest gadgetry and plenty of glossy cabinets.

The lower ground floor provides the ultimate luxurious space with a well equipped gym and private sauna as well as a dedicated cinema room with comfortable leather sofas so that you can sit back and enjoy your favourite movies in style.

A dramatic wooden staircase with an open steel balustrade and double-height windows leads to the upper floor where three of the four en suite bedrooms are located, decorated in classic style with crisp white bed linen and soft drapes. The en suite bath or shower rooms are serene and beautifully finished, with velvety towels and bathrobes provided. The fourth bedroom is on the ground floor with its own patio doors opening out to the pool.

Whether you’ve spent your day in the pool, working out in the gym or relaxing with a good book, as the sun begins to sink slowly towards the horizon it’s time to pour a chilled glass of wine and settle down on your chosen terrace to watch the deep fiery reds and golds reflected on the waters of Chania Bay.

Just 20 minutes’ drive away from Villa Nikolas is the historic city of Chania. This charming town sometimes known as ‘little Venice’ has some fantastic beaches, seafront restaurants and fascinating attractions to offer, including hidden mountain caves waiting to be explored.
Whether you’re looking for a quiet family retreat, a romantic escape or somewhere special to share a memorable holiday with friends, this wonderful property is perfectly positioned to meet your every need.

Please note that the gardens are open to the surrounding rocks and the house’s main staircase has an open handrail which could be unsuitable for some families.

London Family (the eldest child is at school)
Have stayed at a number of villas via James Villa over many years, this was by far the best. We had a minor maintenance issue on arrival that was resolved very quickly by the local agent. The rest of the trip was great and the villa was superb.

Beautiful location and villa. It has the wow factor and was immaculately clean and tidy. Suffers from several niggly maintenance issues e.g. Door handles falling off, shutters not working. Despite that I highly recommended villa Nikolas.
