The beautiful Kournas Lake lies among mountains and hills, just 2 km from the sea. Victoria Villa is built on the slope of a mountain and offers breathtaking view over the lake, the sea and the valley. Kournas is a fresh water lake and a habitat to ducks, eels, water snakes and many rare bird species. It is surrounded by lash vegetation and if you rent a pedalo boat you will be able to see the sea turtles hiding among the rare aquatic plants. Traditional taverns on the east side of the lake offer beautiful view of the lake. Georgioupolis is 6km away.
The garden of Victoria Villa is covered with grass. The big private pool with the children's area is situated in front of the villa. The pool area offers amazing view over the lake and the sea. There are sun loungers around the pool and a barbecue on the side of the villa. There are outdoor furniture in the terrace and the balconies, where you can seat and relax admiring the view and enjoying the tranquility of the area.
Victoria Villa consists of two floors. At the ground floor there are the sitting area, the kitchen, a bathroom and a cozy double bedroom with access to the garden and the pool. Two twin bedrooms and a bathroom are found on the first floor. Both bedrooms have private balconies with amazing view.
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...
