Georgioupolis is a small seaside town, approximately 38 km southeast of Chania, in west Crete and only 2.3 km away from our hotel. It is on the border between Rethymno prefecture to the east and Chania prefecture to the west, although it belongs to the latter. The area around Georgioupolis is Apokoronas, with its picturesque villages and verdant landscape.

The River Almyros meets the sea at Georgioupolis. Just before the town, it forms a little lake that is home to many birds and animals. The lake is visible from the National Road, as you approach Georgioupolis from Chania.
