Boat Trips

There are plenty of boat trips offered from Georgioupolis around the beautiful coast of Crete. Boat tours take visitors up the Almaris river to see the terrapin colonies.

The property was beautifully maintained and very comfortable and peaceful. What we liked most was the fact that we could easily walk to the local village, have lunch and a look around. In addition, it was just a short car ride to the beach and other towns with some great bars and restaurants. We would definitely recommend the property to our friends/relatives. Wish we could have stayed longer. We'll be back, for sure!

Weather in August is great in Crete, near excellent, clean and equipped beach. Location of the villa is unique - Lake Kournas village with the same name (by the way, absolutely no mosquitoes) between Chania and Rethymno - around a lot of interesting places to visit. The villa is equipped with everything necessary. Special thanks to Marcos and Chara for the warm welcome. We will be back here again!
