Lovely village about 48 kilometres East of Hania and 5 kilometres inland from Georgioupolis with its sandy beaches, the lake of Kournas and the White Mountains. The lake gives drinking water to the surrounding villages. The landscape is very beautiful and reminds one of the Austrian alps rather than Crete. At the shore there are a number of tavernas and kafeneons. During the Summer one can rent small boats. The village is set about 2 kilometres higher up, where there are also shops, schools and more tavernas. Many interesting old buildings with Venetian and Turkish architectures.
