Kalo Horio is the name generally given to three smaller areas Istron, Pyrgos and Arnikou. This area is situated between beautiful sandy bays and magnificent mountains about 10km south of the cosmopolitan town of Aghios Nikolaos.
It offers many amenities and there is a strong local community plus a few foreign residents in the area. This allows the local shops a 12 month a year business rather than just summer season openings.
Thousands of visitors come to Kalo Horio to visit its three lovely beaches Aghios Panteleimon, Karavostasi and the golden beach of Voulisma.
There is a very good bus system connecting Kalo Horio to the rest of the island that operates on an hourly basis.
The international airport of Heraklion is about an hours drive from Kalo Horio.
Agios Nikolaos is the capital of the county Lasithi and is located at the Mirabello Bay, north-east Crete, only 40mins away from the international airport of Heraklion.
Geographically the town is well protected from strong winds allowing sea sports and swimming nearly all year round.
Although Agios Nikolaos has a population of less than 20,000 it has a several banks, supermarkets, shops of every kind, doctors, a modern hospital of high standard, public swimming pool and tennis courts, yacht marina, harbour, cinema, theatre, gyms, a 9-hole golf course, schools ranging from nurseries to 6-level high school and generally all the amenities you would expect to find in a large modern European town.
The microclimate is one of the best in Greece and the moderate temperatures
rarely exceed 30c in summer or fall below 15c in wintertime. This wonderful dry climate together with the natural beauty of the area has attracted most of the high class hotels of Greece to operate here.
