Part of a secluded complex, Daios Cove, the Villa is nestled into the hillside and makes it easy to imagine you have the coastline to yourself. With the best of both worlds, you’re only a 10-minute drive from the cosmopolitan town of Agios Nikolaos, and 20 minutes from the quaint fishing village of Elounda. There you’ll find shops, local restaurants, bars and cafes and plenty of historic sites to discover.
The villa is offered on an all-inclusive tariff.
Villa Erato is ideally located in Vathi, near the town of Agios Nikolaos, the capital of Lasithi. Looking out towards the Aegean Sea, this part of Crete is renowned for its serene sandy beaches, historic architecture and beautiful mountainous terrain. It’s the perfect place to go trekking and hiking through gorges, taste authentic local cuisine or discover authentic Greek heritage.
Daios Cove invites all their guests to make the most of their stay in Vathi with tailor-made excursions, sightseeing tours and sailing trips to the island’s most renowned attractions and concealed treasures. Let Daios Cove beach resort in Agios Nikolaos lead you through the paths of history, introduce you to the Cretan way of living and show you the island’s unique heritage, fascinating secrets, enchanting nature and vibrant night-life, with many visiting artists.
In Agios Nikolaos itself (a short 20-minute drive) from the villa, you’ll find an attractive harbour, usually lined with boats, and Voulismeni Lake, a small lagoon. Here, there’s plenty of waterfront restaurants, shops and cafés where you can try fresh seafood, Cretan cheeses or Dakos – a popular dish of chopped tomatoes, fresh cheese, herbs and olive oil on Paximadi (bread).
For lazy afternoons spent on the beach, you can use the resort’s private beach or head to one of the many sandy spots in the area. Kitroplatia Beach is a popular choice with calm clear waters that are ideal for swimming, and it’s close to all amenities of the town. You could also try Almyros Beach – a large sandy stretch set in a sheltered cove – or Havania Beach on the northern outskirts of the town.
From Agios Nikolas, you can jump on a boat to explore more of Crete’s scenic coastline and secluded, rocky coves. Day trips to Spinalonga, the smallest of the Cretan islands, are a popular choice. There you can visit the old Venetian fortress on the island. You can also swim or snorkel off the beaches behind the Kolokytha Peninsula.
