Kournas is a mountainous village of Municipality of Apokoronas, Chania, on the Greek island of Crete. It has a population of 500 citizens. It is located at 200 meters altitude and south-east of the mountain named Dafnomadara (1680 meters).
Kournas is a fairly large village perched on a hill overlooking Lake Kournas. It was in the former Georgioupoli municipality, not far from the town of the same name. A working village which has seen less depopulation than some of its neighbours, Kournas is known for its pottery and many popular taverns.
In the village of Kournas is the church of Agios Georgios, to which leads a road to the right of the square. It was built in Byzantine times, with architectural features added later during the Venetian period.
Apart from the feast of St George, a great festival is also held in Kournas on 29 August, in honour of St John the Baptist. There is yet another festival on 16 August, organized by the Kournas Cultural Association.
Lake Kournas is the only freshwater lake in Crete. Lake Kournas in ancient times was known as Korisia, but later took its current name from the Arabic word for lake.
Located in a beautiful location in a hollow between two hills, about 4km away from Georgioupolis in Chania (western Crete).
Lake Kournas is relatively small with a maximum length of 1087 meters and a width of 880 meters. Covering an area of 579 acres and is generally shallow with a maximum depth of 22.5 meters and is situated 20 meters above sea level.
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 35 metres 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.
