Dimitrouliana is an area with a group of houses, located around the banks of Kournas
Lake. It is not exactly a village but it is very close to the village of Mouri
, and around the lake there are restaurants and souvenir shops. Almost all the houses are villas to rent. Kournas lake is the only fresh water lake on Crete
, with a big and very deep dark hole in the middle, which according to local legends is home to a nymph. The Lefka Ori Mountain (White Mountain) is reflected in the lake waters. You can swim in Kournas (water is usually cold), and there is even a narrow strip of sand and gravel used as a beach.
The seaside resort of Georgioupoli
and its long sandy beach are less than 5 km away.
