Georgioupolis in Crete

Hotels and apartments

 

The village of Georgioupolis with it’s particulary 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.

Georgioupolis or CGeorgioupolis

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 and excellent bus service in all directions and thus it is possible to go quite far afield, for example to Heraklion (90 min journey) or the south coast perhaps to visit Phaistos or Matala. An outing to Georgioupolis is also worthwhile. Closer to home there are interesting visits to be made to the old quarters of Chania an Rethymno.

Lake Kournas, famed as the only fresh water lake on Crete and 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.

Tip of the day

Top beaches.  Crete, Greece
Kouremenos near Paleokastro (North-Estern Crete)
A real magnet for windsurfers from all over the world, who find ideal wind-wave combinations.
Rihti - Exo Mouliana near Mochlos (North-Eastern Crete)
Two hours walk through the Rihtis gorge, which is a beautiful path that culminates with Rihtis waterfall near Rihtis beach, will take you to one of the most secluded beaches of the island.
Istron or Kalo Chorio (North-Estern Crete)
A place filled with legends and traditions – but you will find quality tourism services too.
Maridati South of Vai beach (North-Eastern Crete)
Two big rocks are the landmarks of this beach that remains unknown to the masses.
Mochlos (North-Eastern Crete)
A village filled with fish taverns with a view of the Pseira Island, and lots of archaeological findings.
Kato Zakros (Estern Crete)
If you follow the two hours long footpath through the “gorge of the dead” you will be rewarded with the view of a magnificent beach but also of the Minoan Palace of Zakros destroyed on 1450 B.C. possibly by a Thira (Santorini) volcano explosion.
Hiona near Paleokastro (North-Estern Crete)
Shallow waters for the kids and young swimmers, and a well known - all over the island - local fish soup.
Aghia Fotia - Sitia (South-Estern Crete)
We are not talking about the district with the same name at Ierapetra, here we find ourselves 7 kms east of Sitia in an area where the biggest cemetery of Minoan Crete was discovered.
Xerokambos – Sitia (South-Estern Crete)
Thousands of lilies at the eastern part of Crete fill the atmosphere with sensual vibes.
