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.

Lazaretta Island is also reached by boat and the crystal waters are ideal for swimming and snorkeling.

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!

The patio and grass area were perfect for meals and sunbathing and were quite private. The pool area was fabulous with a beautiful view of Almyrida bay. We did however find that sometimes the pool was overcrowded when it was in use by all apartments. The location was ideal with just a short walk to the shops, restaurants and beach. We would definitely reccommend this apartment for a family holiday.
