Location

In walking distance to the centre and just a short drive (4km) to the gorgeous beach of Kavros “Paralia Kourna”.

The picturesque traditional village of Kournas is 8km from the seaside resort of Georgioupolis and about 4km from the famous Lake of Kournas. While the lake is a kind of touristy, Kournas village is completely unaffected by tourism and takes visitors on a journey back in time. The old houses, the village square, the pottery workshop opposite the large kafenio and tavern "Kali Kardia", with its wonderful salads and delicious meat, are the first things you will notice in the village.

The village has 500 inhabitants and lies at an altitude of 200m in the foothills of Mount Dafnomadara (1.680 m). Kournas prospered from the 16th century onwards and is linked to many battles for freedom from the Turks. It was the seat of the Revolutionary Government in the rising of 1866 and the seat of the Cretan General Assembly in 1897.

The village of Kournas lacks particular facilities for tourists, but nearby Georgioupolis offers everything you might need, and just a 4km drive downhill is the village of Kavros, popular place for vacation and permanent housing, where one will find whatever one needs, such as supermarkets, shops, gas stations, pharmacies, taverns and kafenia/bars.

In the village of Kournas is the church of Ag. Georgios, built in Byzantine times, with architectural features added later during the Venetian period. The Byzantine church of Agios Georgios in Kournas was built shortly before 1.200AD.

Apart from the feast of St George, a great festival is also held in Kournas on 29th August, in honour of St John the Baptist. There is yet another festival on 16th August, organized by the Kournas Cultural Association.

Between the village and the lake of Kournas is a very pretty cave, Kournas Cave, which offers a wonderful view of the lake. The cave is relatively small, only 35m deep, but it contains impressive stalactites and stalagmites. If you go in the afternoon, the cave is dark but the little light coming in makes it truly spectacular.
