Papadakis apartment’s Georgioupolis Minimum stay is 7 days - rates include air-conditioning No last minute bookings The village of Georgioupolis with its particularly beautiful setting between sea and mountain is situated between the towns of Rethymno, a 30 minute journey by car and Chania which is a 45 minute drive away. This charming village with its long stretch of sandy beach and river running into the sea was until recent times a sleepy little fishing village in an out of the way place. Over the past 20 years it has slowly grown into a very popular little holiday resort, with a wide range of tavernas, shops, cafes, boutiques and other tourist amenities. The beautiful countryside surrounding the village is ideal for those keen on walking, while the splendid sandy shore and relaxed sea side atmosphere make it ideal for beach lovers. There is an excellent bus service in all directions and thus it is possible to go quite far, for example to Heraklion (90min journey) or the south coast perhaps to visit Phaistos or Matala. An outing to Frangokastello is also worthwhile. Closer to home there are interesting visits to be made to the old quarters of Chania and Rethymno. Lake Kournas, famed as the only fresh water lake on Crete and a haven for wild life, is within walking distance from Georgioupolis. Some distance outside the village, a long row of hotels sits alongside the sweeping almost 10 km long pale fine sandy beach and crystal clear waters. However, a part of timeless old Georgioupolis remains very much in place. As in years gone by, the eucalyptus tree lined square remains the perfect place to sit and watch the villagers meet each other in the Kafenions to exchange the news of the day over a coffee or ouzo Exactly at the beginning of the long sandy beach, at a quiet spot of the village Georgioupolis, only 150 m from The sea, in a large garden is situated the complex with studios (25 m/2 for 2 guests) + apartments 36 m/2, 1 separate bedroom for 2 up to 4 guests.
