Georgioupolis

Georgioupolis is a large fishing village approximately 15 minute drive from Aloni House. It is popular with holidaymakers from many countries and is best suited to families and couples. There are plenty of bars to keep the younger ones entertained but no nightclubs. The golden sandy beaches which spread 7km east of the village centre are well equipped with sun loungers, parasols, beach entertainment and tavernas. There is also a smaller crescent shaped beach in the heart of the village called Kalivaki with sun loungers, parasols and a couple of beach bars. For those serious swimmers there is a large public swimming pool (open air) in the village. The lively square is lined with tavernas and bars, great for sitting and watching the world go by. With plenty of other tavernas to choose from, good shopping, particularly for jewellery, supermarkets, a chemist (and a doctors surgery), a bank and a weekly market, Georgioupolis has everything to offer the holidaymaker looking for plenty to do without forsaking its Cretan charm.

Lake Kournas is just 3km inland from Georgioupolis and is a 10 minute drive from Aloni House. It is a popular tourist destination as it is one of only a few freshwater lakes on the island.
