Irini was beautiful but spoilt by Anna's next door

  • 5 of 5

We love the area, the property including the gardens are beautiful, and well equipped, both are well maintained.We have had many holidays in the area and this was one of the best! It is such a shame that Anna's building next door is so close and especially when we sat on our patio for breakfast.We always enjoy the food in many of the great tavernas and love kalavaki beach and enjoyed the easy walk to get there. We also love Stelios Beach Canteena for great eggs and bacon and fresh fruit salads! We enjoyed our evenings in the village square and also the Cotton Club.

Very Nice Place

  • 4 of 5

This place is very well taken care off. It has a nice garden full of flowers and beautiful plants. It is nice to come home here after your daytrip. The owner is very helpful and responsive and NICE. We loved our first time in Crete from this not too crowded small village next to the beach. The apartment is clean and has its own style so you do not feel at all like in a hotel. So to be recommended and thanks to the owner.

Do I want to share my find?

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful two weeks stay - I wish it could have been longer! I want to keep this a secret.

Antonia and her husband make you so very welcome and the studios are kept spotless, being cleaned regularly, sheets and towels changed, and most of all special treats like delicious honey cake and fruit left in your refrigerator. The gardens around the studios are colourful, peaceful and tranquil and a pleasure to sit in. The studios are really well equipped and in excellent condition.

Antonia speaks excellent English and loves to tell you about Crete, Chania and the surrounding area. Having a car on rent was good and enabled me see around the area. The local bus service to Chania and Rethymno was excellent.

Just a five minute stroll away across the fields is a lovely beach, not too busy and wonderful for an early morning, or an any time, swim! Just a stroll away too is the little port where there are tavernas for your drinks and delicious suppers.

I'm going back...........

Relaxing, quiet and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We arrived from the UK totally stressed, but after 2 weeks of relaxing, sightseeing and enjoying life without the TV, mobiles etc. we were back to sanity. We had a brilliant time talking to our Hostess who looked after us excellently and bought her fabulous treats along every couple of days. The apartment was great for 2 people and the garden is filled with many fruit trees. We were just out of the town so no noise apart from the occassional dog barking or cockerel crowing but this all added to the ambience of the holiday. The geese on the river were quite a pantomime. The cretans were very friendly and we met some real characters. Samaria gorge was walked and what a test especially on a hot day. Good walking boots are a pre-requisite. The beaches are amazing and a joy if you wish to venture out of the main tourist area. Georgiopoulis is a delightful place without all the razmatazz of the larger touristy places it is enough and great for families with small children. I hope you enjoy your stay at Irini as it is without doubt a lovely residence to stay in.

Un petit paradis

  • 5 of 5

Nous venons de passer 10 jours de rêve dans un studio IRINI. L'emplacement est merveilleux, calme, entouré de beaucoup de fleurs, le jardin très bien entretenu. Nous en avons bien profité. Le studio de même, nettoyé régulièrement par Antonia qui nous a gâtés avec de la pâtisserie, et ses arrangements de fleurs ! Très sympathique, elle répond à toutes nos questions, ce qui est souvent très utile. Elle ne ménage pas son temps pour notre confort... Le village d'une grandeur agréable, la rivière magnifique, la mer toute proche, les markets et les tavernes en suffisance. Il n'y a pas d'office du tourisme à Georgioupoli, mais nous en avons trouvé un à Vamos, ce qui nous a permis de marcher selon des circuits pédestres proposés dans 2 petites brochures. La description des promenades étaient en anglais, bien décrites, faciles (2 à 3 heures de marche) l'idéal pour découvrir cette belle région. Mais nous n'avons pas tout vu et nous retournerons certainement l'année prochaine, dans la même maison, bien-sûr !

Nous l'avons déjà recommandée à des amis.

Georgioupolis
Car: recommended

Georgioupolis is a popular vacation resort with a great long beach (it goes for several Km) and an idyllic harbour with little fishing boats at the north coast of the island, between the cities of Chania and Rethymnon (35 km from Chania, 25 km from Rethimnon). A fishing village up to 1990 or so, it was discovered and has been transformed into a popular holiday destination over the past 15 years, without losing its original charm and tranquillity. Old eucalyptus trees and a small river that flows into the sea, create a distinctive and unique ambiance (it is a wildlife refuge). As for the location it is a great choice as a starting point for excursions into western Crete. At a distance of about 5 Km from Georgioupoli lies the Kournas sweet water lake that worths a visit.
