Overview

About the property

1 double bedroom, 1 twin bedroom, 1 WC, 1 bathroom & private pool

Rea villa is one of two unique villas that are located in the most panoramic point of the region Kournas. They are built in a way that wherever you are you can enjoy the unique view of the lake and the White Mountains, also with a magnificent backdrop to the deep bay of Georgioupolis and the deep blue of the Cretan Sea. As they are situated in the heart of Apokoronas, just outside the traditional village Kournas, the villas are the ideal starting point for all kinds of tours around the area. Explore the lake and the Cretan nature, visit Crete’s north and south coast, admire the island’s tradition and culture and enjoy its hospitality.

As you walk in each one of the 120sqm villas, the living room along with a fully equipped kitchen and a dining table is situated there for you. Two Sofas that can turn into beds, a High Definition TV and a WC can be found also on the ground floor. Walking up the stairs and heading up to the second floor, 2 bedrooms with one double bed and one with two single beds can be found.

The ideal location in the hilly area of Apokoronas, but only 3 km from the beaches of Georgioupolis, amidst mountains, lakes and the sea, allows you for short walks and longer excursions to experience the Cretan nature and our people.

Apokoronas is one of the five former provinces of Chania prefecture and is situated at the northeast part of the prefecture. Kournas is one of the area’s traditional villages. The area of Apokoronas extends from the foothills of Lefka Ori north to the beach, with several gulfs, such the gulf of Almyros and Georgioupolis.

Kournas Lake, 3 km from Georgioupolis, is the southern lake of whole Europe. It is created thanks to the underground water coming down from Lefka Ori and is trapped by the impervious rocks within the natural basin.

Lake Kournas was known in antiquity as Lake Koressia. Its current name comes from the Arabic language and means bathtub and lake. The lake’s dark waters impress not only the visitors but also the natives, thus there is the belief that it is bottomless. The lake has some more legends and of course its own water nymph who appears on moonlit nights, combing her hair.

The villas lie above Lake Kournas on the north end of Chania prefecture, almost in the middle between Chania (40 km to the east) and Rethymno (30 km to the west). From Kournas you can easily get to the highway (1000 m) and visit Chania, the Omalos plateau, the Samaria Gorge (79 km), Fragokastelo and other places in Chania prefecture, or drive west and visit Rethymno with the impressive castle or Heraklion and Knossos (105 km), an important town in the antiquity.

There are daily departures from Piraeus to the port of Souda, only 45 km form the lake. You could also travel by aeroplane to Chania or Heraklion from Athens or most European cities.

About Manos Dafermos

Hello there,

I am Manos, owner and manager of CreteVillas4U. I have been in the hospitality sector long before CreteVillas4U, however. I was actually born, grew up, and spent most of my life in a hotel owned by my family. So, I guess it came as no surprise when I expressed my wish to study in Rhodes’ Tourism School and, later on, when I decided to start my own business in the sector.

One thing I learned growing up in a family-run hotel is that hospitality is more than hotel management, logistics and operations. It is a culture, passing down from one generation to the next. You can study to be a hotel manager but you cannot study to be hospitable.

I apply this philosophy in my business as well. The rule is simple: the guests of the villas I manage are my guests. As an active traveller, I expect nothing less myself.

The fourth generation of Dafermos hoteliers has already been born. I know now that my two beautiful children will probably follow my steps, like I did before them. There is a small difference though: they are smarter, more educated, better (big smile).

All the best,

Manos Dafermos

Ferienhaus am Kournas See Villa Dafne, Bluefairy villas

  • 5 of 5

Perfektes Domizil ! Wunderschön oberhalb des Kournas-See gelegenes Domizil mit Sicht auf See, Berge und das Meer. Ausgesprochen fürsorgliche und sehr nette Vermieter. ( Mit mindestens 5 Ausrufezeichen).Bezüglich Sauberkeit und Ausstattung hatten wir als 4-köpfige Familie definitiv nichts auszusetzen. Wer keine absolute Strandnähe und Trubel braucht, ist hier bestens aufgehoben. Mehrere ordentliche Tavernen liegen in Laufweite, Supermärkte, Bäcker etc. in 3 km Entfernung, Selbstversorgung war aber null Problem.

Hundertprozentige Weiterempfehlung !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kournas Lake is the only freshwater lake in Crete. Lake Kournas was known as Lake Koressia in antiquity but later took its current name from the Arabic word for lake.

The lake is in a beautiful landscape, lying in a valley among the hills, about 4 km from Georgioupolis in Chania Prefecture (west Crete). You can enjoy walking to the tavernas and coffee bars next to the lake in your relaxing time.
