Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
The views from our villa are acclaimed as the best in Crete. The terrace overlooks the only fresh water lake on the island; the sparkling blue waters of the Mediterranean are to our right; and majestic mountain peaks to our left. It’s all here waiting for you to enjoy. Soak up the views or soak yourself in the lake’s cool, crystal waters. You won’t regret it. Or if it’s sun, sea and sand you’re looking for, there are the nearby life-guarded beaches of Georgioupolis. Or use the villa, located between Rethymnon and Chania in the foothills of Crete’s White Mountains, as your base for an energetic hiking or cycling day out in the mountains. When you’re ready to wine and dine, you’ll be spoiled for choice. Tavernas abound around the lake as well as in Georgioupolis. Or if you do not want to stray too far, there’s a family taverna just 50m from the villa that specialises in Cretan food and, of course, it overlooks the lake.

The Crete region
We all know of Crete's exquisite 1,000 kilometer-long coastline dotted with numerous coves, bays and peninsulas which afford a multitude of soft, sandy beaches along the beautifully blue Mediterranean Sea. After all, it's among the finest in the world and has established Crete as one of Europe 's most popular holiday destinations. And, of course, the island's historic importance in today's world as the home of the Minoan civilisation with important archeological finds at Knossos, Festos and Gortys, is evidenced by the tens of thousands of visitors to these sites each year.
However, Crete is the largest island in Greece, the fifth largest in the Mediterranean - and, within its diverse area of more than 8,000 square kilometres, there are many other jewels just waiting to be discovered by the more adventurous explorers of holiday treasures.
If you have not visited Crete yet, this summer may be the time to come and discover this fascinating Greek island. If it captures your heart, don’t worry. Come back next year and Crete will welcome you once more with its smiling Cretan sun, the sounds of the Cretan lyre, the scents of orange blossom and jasmine, a slice of cool red watermelon and a glass of iced raki.
