We had a super stay here. The area is fantastic with the choice of going to the lake ( which is like going to the beach but with clear salt less water) or go to the beach, which is so long you can always find an empty stretch for yourselves. Both within five minutes drive. The pool was gorgeous to...

Our third stay at this lovely villa near Lake Kournas. It's clean, comfortable and perfect if you like to be a bit remote. The pool is perfect and there are many wonderful family run Tavernas within walking distance of the villa. Also pedalows are cheap to hire at the lake and a fun way to spend time. There are turtles...

About the neighbourhood
Situated just inland from Georgioupoli, Lake Kourna is the only natural fresh water lake on Crete. The lake shore is scattered with tavernas overlooking the lake and the backdrop of the white mountains beyond. Sun loungers, pedalos and kayaks are available for hire at the lake. Georgioupoli is an attractive fishing village on the banks of the Almyros river. The village lies between the towns of Chania and Rethymnon and is easily accessible from the Northern Highway. Georgioupolis has the longest beach on the north coast. An assortment of tavernas, bars and shops surround the village square. Famed for its high eucalyptus trees and friendly inhabitants it retains the feel of a traditional Greek village. Horse riding, childrens play areas, boat trips and excursions are available.

How to get there
Airport: Chania: 48.0 km
Ferry: Souda: 35.0 km
By Air

Chania Airport - 40 minute drive
Heraklion Airport - 1 hour 30 minute drive (note Heraklion is sometimes spelt Iraklion. In fact many Greek names have several translated spellings. Hania = Chania etc.).

Charter flights from Europe are quite numerous from April until the end of October. There are a lot more flights to Heraklion than to Chania, making them often cheaper (and not as heavily booked) than flights to Chania. Charter flights get cheaper as the departure date approaches however you do run the risk of not getting the flight you want, or in peek season any flight at all.

Easy Jet fly direct from Gatwick and Manchester to Heraklion.

Almost all scheduled international flights transit through Athens where you then take a scheduled domestic flight to either Chania or Heraklio...
