Mythos Palace Resort & Spa hotel is located in the region of Kavros, on the northern side of Crete, close to Georgioupolis. The town of Rethymno is eighteen kilometers away, while Chania is just about forty kilometers away from the hotel.
Ideally located on a beautiful Blue Flag beach, this resort is perfect for families with children. From the hotel you can quickly reach numerous interesting places and go on several attractive excursions. A trip to the beautiful Kournas Lake is a must, as it is the only lake with fresh water on the entire Crete Island. Kournas Lake is located on the northern part of the Lefka Ori Mountain, about four kilometers away from the town of Georgioupolis. The scenery around the lake is breathtaking, and the lake has a very unique eco-system. You can admire many beautiful birds near the lake, as well as rare turtles that are indigenous to Crete. In the summer period, the water levels get lower and around the lake there are many nice sandy beaches where you can relax. On Kournas Lake you can ride a paddle boat or swim in the warm waters. Mythos Palace Resort & Spa often organizes hiking excursions to the Kournas Lake, so take advantage of that and visit this beautiful lake.
Another place worth visiting is the tourist town of Georgioupolis, which is only four kilometers away from the hotel. It has a nice long beach stretching to almost two kilometers and the town has really nice lush vegetation all around. There are many interesting things for the tourists, including a lively harbor, and the St. Nicolas Chapel, which is a great spot for snapping pictures built on an attractive artificial pier in the Cretan Sea.
Besides the mentioned places, a couple of kilometers away from Mythos Palace Resort & Spa you will find some really charming villages worth visiting. Gavalochori, Vamos and Vrysses are some very nice places, full of historical points of interest, monasteries, museums and many other interesting things.
