Each one of these complexes consists of 4 traditional stone houses, which offer all modern comforts and a magnificent ambience to all guests.

Room Services and Facilities

All houses – of all three complexes – are independent and fully equipped. They are built according to the traditional architecture. On the outside, beautiful stone work frames the dark green doorways and windows, further accentuated by the pastel strawberry and lemon walls. Add to this lovely tiled roofs and backdrop of the blue sky and mountains, and then you begin to understand why we were so smitten. Inside the restoration is if anything, even more remarkable, with beautifully tiled floors, ceilings supported by huge beams interlaced with traditional bamboo linings and pale ochre coloured walls set off by elegant concealed lighting. Also we do provide Wi-Fi internet in public areas. Each house has two floors and a private veranda with panoramic view of the mountain and the sea. Guests can choose amongst houses with one or two sitting areas, according to their needs. All houses are equipped with fully equipped kitchen (with kitchen appliances and utensils), bathroom with bathtub, WC with shower and one or two bedrooms with king size beds. The houses combine harmoniously the traditional style with modern decorative elements, creating a warm and cozy atmosphere. For your convenience, all houses have A/C, fireplace and plasma TV. Every house can accommodate 4 to 6 persons. Each complex has two swimming pools, one for adults and one for children and an autonomous parking space. At the central complex of KASTELLOS VILLAGE you will find the reception area and a traditional coffee house.

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

Georgioupolis, one of the most tourist destinations in Crete, Is situated on the northwest coast of the island, in the Almyros bay, between the cities of Chania and Rethymno. A group of villages built on the slopes of the White Mountains, on the Almyros river estuary and the shore that runs along the bay, amongst vineyards, olive groves and forests. The visitor here finds concentrated all the landscape features that give character to the island: the mountain and the plain, the river, the lake and the sea, wild nature and cultivated land. Landscapes of incomparable beauty, villages conserving the traditional Cretan element, but also residential zones of cosmopolitan atmosphere, nightlife, luxurious hotels with high-class services, and the ability of easy access to every place to the west of the island through the highway that links its major cities. Every summer, in Georgioupolis all the locals are devoted to provide services to the visitors: the famous Cretan hospitality finds here its true meaning. This is only one of the many reasons where thousands of visitors worldwide, return here full of nostalgia. Because the first word hospitality means to us, is the word Friendship.

KOURNAS LAKE

The lake is situated just 2, 5 km from the sea and 10klm from Kastellos, amongst the hilltops. It is created by the obstruction of underground water from the impermeable rock and the flooding of the existing cavity. The depth of the lake reaches 22 m and the water level changes depending of the season: in winter it lowers while the summer with the melt of snow from the White Mountains it rises. The lake is referred from ancient years with the name of Korisia.

It is also believed that an ancient temple dedicated to the ancient goddess Athena existed somewhere on the lakeshore. However the raiding Arabs in middle Ages gave the lake its present name 'Kournas', which means lake. The dark colour of the lake caused by the reflections of the high mountains, it seemed to have created a sense of fear to the locals so that a legend was created.
