Crete is the largest of the Greek islands, situated in the Mediterranean
approximately 160 km south of the Greek mainland.
Villa Athanati itself is in the quiet coastal area of Ammoudara, 3 km outside
the busy and bustling town of Agios Nikolaos. To get there by car takes
less than 1 hour from Heraklion international airport.
Agios Nikolaos, a picturesque fishing town, consists of a marina, busy
town centre, port and one of Europe’s deepest natural lakes. Full of
restaurants, coffee shops, friendly locals, two municipal beaches and
plenty of tourist attractions (without being too commercial), Agios
Nikolaos has plenty to offer.
