“Stunning views, large and well-equiped villa with very friendly owners.”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My wife and I rented this villa for a week towards the end of May and it was one of the best vacation rentals that I have ever stayed in. The villas themselves (there are two) are spacious, well equipped (including wifi and private pools, one for each villa), immaculately clean and very-well maintained. However, the best part is the fantastic view over the lake, the hills to the south and the sea to the north. Each evening we would eat out on the porch and watch the sun set behind the hill opposite. The owners were extremely welcoming, giving us local olive oil, fruit, raki and home-made cakes and biscuits on arrival, and came to say goodbye when we left.

Lake Kournas is great location, too -- lots of little tavernas one side of the lake, but not inundated with tourists. It's worth take out a pedallo to see the turtles. The lake is a 5 minute walk from the villa, and the sea (with large sandy beaches) only a 5 minute drive. Chania is 40 minutes by car, and Rethymnon about 20 minutes in the other direction.

Overall, I'd definitely recommend staying here. We're thinking of returning in the future.

(On a side note: I could never find the cave that is supposed to be near the lake. I think it is somewhere along the little road that runs to the south of the lake, but i'm not sure you can access it any more.)

“Stunning Villa matched by the welcome and hospitality”

Stayed at the Villa as 2 couples. It was everything that we had hoped for and more.

The Villa itself is spacious, clean and the views really are spectacular. You are made to feel part of the family when you arrive at the villa, with cake, biscuits and fresh fruit delivered to make you feel welcome. Our every need was catered to.

We spent a lot of time eating and drinking in Yannis taverna, owned by a relative of the owner and 2 minutes walk down from the Villa. The food and welcome were just as good here, I would particularly recommend the Apaki from the starters menu!

The area is great, Georgioupolis is a lovely little town on the seafront with nice bars and restaurants. It was a 5 minute taxi costing 7 euros, or a 30 minute stroll. There is plenty of entertainment on the lake itself which is a 5 minute walk down from the Villa.

I look forward to returning, and have been recommending to friends and family!

Bluefairy villas are the best place to enjoy Cretian's life, enjoy the quiet place with the splendid view on the Kournas Lake. The owners are very friendly and helpful.

All is done to feel at home. Sunbeds, balls in the swimming pool, fresh fruits when arriving, homemade cakes and biscuits, ...

Superbe endroit pour passer de magnifiques vacances.

If you walk 5 minutes, you have a delicious restaurant called Georgia's.
