Situated on the top of a small hill, at the edge of a gorge just outside the rural village of Exopoli and overlooking the resort village of Georgioupolis, our villas have been extremely cleverly, and very thoughtfully, designed to provide modern comfortable accommodation that is firmly influenced by Cretan tradition and style. The final result is a very individual design that fully reflects the Cretan character, the local culture and the environment, whilst ensuring a high level of modern comfort that is expected in today's holiday accommodation.
The villa can accommodate till 5 people and covers an area of 110sqm. On the ground floor there is a living room with fireplace, fully equipped separate kitchen, dining-room and WC. The second floor includes a 15 sqm master bedroom with a king size bed, a 15sqm bedroom with two single beds, and a big bathroom with bathtub.
Homely and welcoming, the sitting and dining areas mix traditional decor with an astute sense of style. Wood beams and exposed stone add color and character to the rustic atmosphere enhancing a living space that is both quaint and charming. On the first floor, the private balcony off the double bedroom enjoys wonderful sea views while the twin bedroom offers an eye-catching rural panorama.
At night, Moroccan-style lamps create an exotic atmosphere while the lights of nearby Georgiopoulis twinkling in the background will tempt even the most reluctant recluse to come and visit.
There is plenty of space around the poolside terrace to arrange sun loungers to suit the mood and ensure that the constantly changing panorama of sparkling sea and surrounding mountains can be appreciated from every angle.
Villa Katerina fully reflects the Cretan character, the local culture and the environment, whilst ensuring the privacy of the residents and an exceptional view of Almyros Bay, Lefka Ori (mountains) the village and the landscape of Georgioupolis.

The most privilage location of North-West Crete
Georgioupolis is found at the apex of Almiros Bay on the Sea of Crete, with Cape Drapano and its rocky coast to the north and the long sandy beaches towards Rethimno in the east, just 20 km away. Three rivers meet the sea at the village; the largest, Almiros, creates a small harbour for fishing and tourist boats.
The Formerly a small fishing village, Georgioupolis is very much a tourist town now, with many cafes, tavernas and small hotels and apartment blocks. The town square is surrounded by outdoor seating used by tourists enjoying their drinks and ice creams. The 9 km beach is the main attraction of the area, with Kalyvaki beach on the other side of the river as well. It is ideal for groups of friends, couples and families, and generally anyone in search of quiet holidays without missing out on nightly entertainment in bars and restaurants.
A combination of three separate rivers flowing down to the sea and rare eucalyptus trees has created a unique environment that attracts unusual wildlife. Close by, a refuge has evolved to protect the pelicans and turtles that have settled there and little paddle boats can be hired to explore the backwaters. Nearby Lake Kournas (4km) is also a charming place to visit.
Georgioupolis is great for everyone, as it has good tourist amenities and lots of shops to suit every visitor.
It is ideally placed for exploration and excursions to neighbouring areas of great tourist interest.
Nearby Lake Kournas is also a popular excursion by foot, bicycle or tourist 'train'. Georgioupolis is a well-located base for exploring the traditional villages of the area towards Vamos or into the White Mountains to the south.entrance to the village on the old road from Vrisses is a long avenue of eucalyptus trees.

Heraklion Airport (HER) is the primary airport of Crete it is located about 5 km east of the main city and 110km (90min drive) from our villas.
