    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 str... more

I stayed at Helen's place with my family. We were 4 people in total and had more than enough space! We had a very comfortable stay and Helen was very welcoming. The location is perfect for those who want to get away from everything but don't want to be so far away that one has to drive for an hour to get to a restaurant! The lake is amazing! From the villa it is only a 10 minute walk to several tavernas. A vehicle is a must! Only about a 10 minute drive to the beach and supermarkets. The only small inconvenience we had were the directions we were given to the Villa. We got a bit turned around but it worked itself out in the end but the directions should be written a bit more clear. I would certainly recommend the Villa and would love to return back someday! more

We hadn't been to Crete before, but we are so pleased that we went to stay at this villa. It was clean, comfortable and had fantastic views across the lake, mountains and sea. It was 50m to the nearest taverna and a 10 minute walk to the lake, with its tavernas, pedalos etc.
The villa, and lake, are about 3k from the sea and the pleasant village of Georgeopulis, with its great beaches and good food.
It is handily placed about midway between the main airport, and the palace at Knossos, and Chania, the beautiful Venetian town and harbour.
We had a good car deal with Europecars, based at the airport in Hiraklion, too. This was very hany for gettinga round this gorgeous island.
The people are very friendly and quite a lot of English is spoken, though, people who speak a little Greek, even only the basic pleasantries, are much appreciated.
