#About the Lake in the Valley

Halfway between Rethymno and Chania, a few kilometers from the town of Georgioupolis, lies Lake Kournas, known as the Hidden Lake. It is a small lake, with clear, sweet water enclosed by hills and the high mountains.

This picturesque lake is a perfect place for a picnic and one of the most pastoral in the island. On its shore are some successful taverns with local food and ducks that can even be fed. It is the only lake in Crete surrounded by mountains.

It is a relatively isolated, hidden lake, located 60 kilometers from the city of Rethymno in a closed valley. This is a great place to spend a few hours of rest, swimming, sailing and good Greek food.

The entertainment here is reminiscent of the past. One can take a swim in the clear water, sunbathe or take an hour's walk around the lake. If you like, you can rent a pedal boat and go sailing on the lake.

#Excellent Restaurant on the Way to Lake Kournas

Beyond its wonderful location, the Kali Kardia Restaurant by Lake Kournas offers authentic Mediterranean food, with fresh, quality ingredients, most of which are grown here in the vicinity.

Kali Kardia, located in a small village near the lake, is worth the trip. Let's begin, of-course, with the excellent food: the house sausages, the wonderful smoked pork, the great lamb chops, the deliciously tasty souvlaki, as well as the local staca and dakos. Everything here is as successful as a real Greek mother's kitchen.

Take Andrea who works the grill for example- he prepares the meats very well and is also really nice. In general, the service here is pleasant and homey. Have fun!
