It is located in the traditional village of Kournas, a village surrounded by a hill overlooking Lake Kournas and the lovely sea views
The village of Kournas is located at 43km (26.7 miles) from Chania, 20km (12.5 miles) from Rethymnon and only 7km (4.3miles) from the seaside resort of Georgioupolis, with its long stretch of beach, well organized for swimming, water sports, dining, drinking and shopping.
Back at the village of Kournas, it is definitely worth visiting the old byzantine churches (such as the churches of St. George, St. Anna), the Minoan dome-shaped tomb (situated on the hill next to Filaki), the small cave of Kournas, discovered by chance and later explored by Eleftherios Platakis, and, last but not least, Lake Kournas.
Lake Kournas is the only natural fresh water lake of Crete, with a maximum length of 1080 meters (0.67 miles) and a maximum width of 880 meters (0.54 miles). Its maximum depth is calculated at 22.5 meters (approx 74 feet).
The picturesque lake is surrounded by dense vegetation of osier and myrtle trees, while olive trees adorn its southeastern side. The white sand beach around the lake makes it ideal for swimming. Do not miss out on enjoying a boat tour of the lake and savoring the delicious local meze at the traditional tavernas nearby.
Also, if you happen to be in the area in August, it is worth visiting the local fare of St. John the Baptist on the 28/8, to enjoy the cretan dances and songs and of course to taste the traditional cretan cuisine
