Activities and things to do
Horse Riding
Horse riding is available Georgioupolis a seaside village resort between Chania and Rethymnon. They offer several different programmes according to ability as well as guided nature walks around the lake of Kournas. This is a very rural area and the White Mountains form a stunning background especially in the spring and early summer when the mountain peaks are snow drenched.
Go Kart Tracks
There are several go kart tracks suitable for children in the resorts of Chania and Rethymnon. They are smaller tracks and smaller karts geared especially for budding Formula 1 drivers!
Georges Mini Golf
Georges mini golf has an 18 hole course set among a garden area. The site also has amusements such as air soccer and a cafe/snack bar.
Waterpark - Limnoupolis
This great water park is set in a fabulous countryside setting away from the busy resorts of Chania. It’s 8 kilometres from the town of Chania and has a variety of rides from Kamikazi to the Lazy River.
The Crete Golf Club
As Crete is a very mountainous island, there is just one 18 hole golf course in Hersonissos on the east of the island. It has a desert style layout and is very well maintained. It would take about an hour and a half to get to the golf course and all equipment can be hired on site.
Villa Mulberry Customer Reviews

Richard Marshall, 07-Aug-2018

A beautiful and well-maintained villa in a fabulous location with stunning views. The overall impression is one of space with plenty of room for dining, lounging by the pool or relaxing on the veranda watching yet another sunset. We have had several Villa Plus holidays, but this was by far the best.
