Joseph Villa is built on a slope of a mountain offering a majestic view over Kournas Lake and the sea. The mountains are reflected into the lake creating a beautiful picture and when the sun falls behind them the view becomes breathtaking...You can spend many relaxing afternoons at the lake strolling, swimming, riding a pedalo or even eating or drinking a coffee at one of the restaurants with lake view. For more amenities the fishing village of Georgioupolis - the starting point of a long, sandy beach - is 6km away.
The 2000sq.m. garden of the villa is covered with colorful plants, olive trees and grass. Every part of the garden offers great view. The big, private pool has a children's area. There are sunbeds and parasols where you can relax enjoying the tranquility of the area and hearing the sounds of a rural village. There are two covered verandas both furnished with garden sets and offering sea/lake view. There is one more veranda facing the mountains.
Joseph Villa is a two floor building. The living area with the fireplace is furnished with a comfortable corner sofa and a traditional cretan sofa. An arch seperates the kitchen and the dining set from the living area. On this floor there are also a twin bedroom and a bathroom. Wooden stairs lead at the first floor that consists of one twin bedroom, one double bedroom, a bathroom and two verandas.
The villa is located in a peaceful area, 3min drive from Kournas Lake and less than 10min drive from Georgioupolis and the beach. Moreover, it is in the middle of the distance Chania-Rethymno, so an ideal starting point for the exploration of both prefectures.
The lake of Kournas is the only freshwater lake of Crete. It is protected under the Natura 2000 program and many rear species find shelter there. On one side of the lake there are taverns and in front of them a sandy organized beach. A pedalo is a must, especially when the sun is falling down...
Covid-19 policy update
On Monday 13/04/2020, Greek Government Gazette published a new regulation (ΦΕΚ 84/Α/13-4-2020, Article 70) to help Greek tourism businesses (hotels and travel agencies) to avoid bankruptcy, due to the unprecedented number of cancellations caused by the pandemic.
The regulation allows these businesses to reimburse customers with 18-month vouchers instead of cash refunds, if these businesses are obliged, based on their policy, to refund any amount that the customers have paid in advanced. The regulation is valid for cancellations made between 25/02/2020 to 30/09/2020.
Holidaymakers will not lose their money and will have the chance to use their booking towards another holiday at a future date with the same business. If, for any reason, customers will not use the voucher within 18 months, businesses will be required to refund the initial amount of the bookings to the customers.
