Right on the shore of the famous Lake of Kournas - the mysterious bottomless lake, in a mind-altering natural environment, Villa Dafni promises a truly peaceful and comfortable stay.
At the same time, here you will have the chance to embark on a delightful gastronomical journey as some of the best taverns of the island are at your feet.
The villa sleeps up to 6 people in 120 sq. m. On the ground floor, it features a living room, a fully equipped kitchen, a dining area, two sofas that can turn into beds and a WC. On the upper floor, you will find 2 bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two single beds.
The villa offers panoramic views of the lake and the White Mountains, while if you turn towards the bay of Georgioupolis it alters to the deep blue of the Aegean Sea.
Kournas Lake is one of the most popular destinations in Crete. You can walk around the lake in less than an hour (3.5 km). You can enjoy a nice meal in one of the taverns or cafés. There are little beaches with white sand just in front of the taverns, where you can rest or take a swim. You could also rent a water bike and ride on the lake.
Around the lake there are many places to visit; you can either walk or take a day trip by car/ motorbike. The White Mountains are on your right. If you drive in the opposite direction you will get to Georgioupolis and to the beaches of Kavros and Episkopi with big sandy hills and crystal clear waters. You could also drive to the village of Argyroupolis with the famous water springs.

At a time when the world is experiencing a global pandemic - a holiday could not have been more important for us to recharge our batteries and we were able to do just that at the villa. The backdrop of the lake was enchanting and calming in equal measures. There’s plenty to do on the lake and we very much enjoyed our early morning canoes with us being the only ones on there.
