Sun Nicolas

The Sun Nicolas is a family-run property where personal service is part of the deal.

It’s a self-catering set-up here and each room has a kitchenette with a breakfast bar and an open-plan living area. You’ll also have a private balcony or terrace where you can chill out in the evening and dine al fresco.

In the centre of the property, there’s a rectangular pool that has a shallow section for little ones. Loungers and parasols sit at either end of the water and there’s a poolside snack bar just a few steps away.

Overview of Chania

Chania is one of Crete’s most popular destinations. A lively coastal city full of classic Venetian architecture and cultural attractions, it’s a great place for history lovers.

There’s something for everyone in Chania, which is why it’s such a popular location for a holiday to Crete. It’s one part beach paradise, one part shopping haven and one part nightlife venue. So, no matter what pace of holiday you like, you’ll love it here.

Things to do in Chania

Stays at the Sun Nicolas give you easy access to the main beach at Agioi Apostoli. This is a relaxing spot, but if you’re looking for fun on the water, take the 15-minute walk to Golden Beach where water sports like windsurfing and bodyboarding are particularly popular.

The centre of Chania is a great place to visit. During the day, you can stroll along the busy harbour or admire the local produce on the market stalls. As the sun goes down, the bars serve fresh cocktails and crank up the music, so it’s a great spot for a lively evening out.

Whether you’re looking for a marathon tanning session, plenty of culture or lively nights out, a stay at the Sun Nicolas is perfect.

Resort Summary

On the northwest coast, Chania is the second largest town in Crete, but it still has plenty of unique attributes. With a Venetian harbour, gold sand beaches and an old town bursting with shopping and tavernas, it’s a Greek island metropolis that begs for action-packed holidays in the sun.

Flock to Chania’s shores for marathon tanning sessions, the harbour with a splash of culture at the lighthouse, the fortress and museums, and a large, covered marketplace for retail therapy.

Kids get stuck in at the town’s waterpark and go-kart track, while you can find peace of mind in the home-cooked plates of lamb and seafood at waterfront restaurants.
