In and around Kournas there are 11 churches and the most special, and also two of the oldest Byzantine churches on Crete, are the Agia Irini and the Agios Georgios, built in 1200 AD.
How to get there
Prior to arrival we will have set up a meeting point from where we will take you to the villa. We suggest you rent a car, and if needed we can assist with this after reservation, we can have it ready for you at the airport. There are so many beautiful places to visit on the island that it would be better to have a car. Chania airport is less than an hour away and Heraklion airpot is about 1,5 hour drive. Transportation from and to the airport can also be arranged by us if necessary. And there is the possibility to rent bicycles, motor bikes or quads from nearby.
