Georgiopolis

Who will read about a small fisher village in a travelguide has an old one for shure.

The village located between Chania and Rethimnon has grown up to a touristic village very fast. Many smaller hotels, taverns and car rentals you will find here.

Good connection by bus to Chania and Rethimnon / Heraklion, because it is close to the National Road.

Impressive the trees here. Because of the small river, going to the sea, in earlier times a big part of the area was a moor. This was a paradise for mosquitoes and following malaria. The trees are taking so much water that the earth is much dryer now. Close to Georgiopoli you can visit the Lake of Kournas.
