Getting there is very easy since the location of being by the lake of Kournas someone can find signs from all the streets. When you are located at the lake the owner will come and pick you up to show you the way to the villa. General from the motorway from either airports (Chania or Heraklion) you turn of the junction to Georgioupolis village. From there follow the signs to Kournas Lake

Kournas Lake is one of the favourite destinations for all Crete visitors. It is the ideal place to relax while going for a nice walk. Walking all around the lake with the blue and green water takes less than an hour (3,5 km. ). You can enjoy a nice meal in one of the taverns or cafés. There are little beaches with white sand just in front of the taverns, where you can rest or take a swim. You could also rent a water bike and ride on the lake.

Around the lake there are many places to visit, giving you the opportunity either to walk or to make a day trip by car/ motorbike. While admiring the lake you can also see Lefka Ori on your right and if you drive to the other direction you will get to Georgioupolis with its beautiful bay or to the beaches of Kavros and Episkopi with big sandy hills and crystal clear water. You could also drive to the village Argyroupolis and refresh yourself by its wonderful water springs.

The village Kournas lies about 4 km from the lake. It is a traditional village, unaffected by tourism, with wonderful green nature. There is the Church of Agios Georgios, a church built in the Byzantine times with architectural features added later during the Venetian period. Between the village and the lake of Kournas is the Kournas Cave, a small but very pretty cave with impressive stalactites and stalagmites.

Not far from Kournas is the village Vryses, a big village with green nature also worth visiting.

If you drive further with direction to the south (Sfakia) you will have the chance to visit some more interesting places. First, the Krapi plateau and then the As
