Agios Nikolaos, Lasithi Prefecture, Crete
Our family built two luxury villas in close proximity to each other, in 2009 to enable us and friends to holiday together but also to have the luxury of privacy from one another. We chose Tholos Bay for its wonderful azure blue sea and magical views over the mountains at sunset.

Villa Giorgina - 2 double bedrooms one with ensuite shower room and there is a family sized bathroom. Each bedroom has double doors opening to a private patio area, both leading to the pool. The living area has a sofabed, comfy chairs and inside dining table. There is also a TV with DVD and many games for all ages. The modern, hi spec kitchen is well equipped.

The 40sq m swimming pool has a swim trainer for extra exercise! The large BBQ, on the same level, is able to cook for up to 20 people! There is also a large area for several sunbeds. Outside furniture...

What an amazing week we have just had at Tholos Bay Villas. Before we even got there we felt so looked after by the owners; they gave us so much information on the villas and surrounding area and made sure we had everything we needed, including buying us a blender so we could puree baby food!! When we arrived (at...

About the neighborhood
The Villas are completely private and quiet as the area consists of olive trees along an unmade up road, so there is no passing traffic except to the only other villa which is about 100 meters away. Complete tranquility and magnificent views by day, evening and night. In the early part of the year we are surrounded by wonderful wild flowers and the walks are from gentle to quite lengthy over hills and to a secret beach!

How to get there
Motorway all the way to Istron. Carry on the coast road till you get to Kavoussi, a very pretty Cretan village, turn left at the signpost to Tholos Beach, turn right just before it up a steepish hill, turn right at the 3rd small tee junction and after a few hundred meters you will find the Villas waiting for you on the right. You will always be met in Istron when you first arrive by our wonderful Managers, who will show you to the villas and settle you in and leave you with a generous welcome pack!
