Make a Holiday Rental Villa in Chorafakia, Greece Your Home Away From Home

The Greek island of Crete is one of the most popular destinations with travellers throughout the world and it is not difficult to see why! As well as some stunning scenery and bundles of history, the island has many great destinations for families, couples and solo travellers. One village that is a hidden gem on the island and is one of the best places to stay if you want some tranquillity is Chorafakia. Situated in the north-western part of Crete, in the Chania area, a Chorafakia holiday is the perfect option for those who want to not only get away from it all but also from the mass of tourists that inhabit the island throughout the year.

Things to Do on Holiday in Chorafakia, Greece

As the village is small and relatively untouched by the tourism industry, visitors on a Chorafakia holiday will not find a great amount of activities to do there. Having said this, there are opportunities to indulge in a spot of swimming, walking and fishing. For sun worshippers or for those who simply want to take in the crystal-blue sea views, there are several wonderful sandy beaches to be found in this coastal village.

This site will give you an insight into the history of the island and has the remains of some beautiful Minoan palaces which date back to the Bronze Age. Several excavations in the last 200 years have discovered much about the palaces and it is believed that Knossos was the political and cultural centre on the island in those pre-historic times.

Didn't want to leave on our last day . Local area provided plenty of things to do , really enjoyed Rethymon. Travelled to Elafonsi which was worth the journey through the mountains , a beautiful beach with crystal clear water .

We loved the historic touches in this restored building and had everything we could need in the villa. The pool was a little cold on some days but that was probably due to the unusually wet weather we experienced. We enjoyed walking through the winding lanes of Kefalas each night to the local taverna, and everyone we met was very friendly, particularly our host Alexandra who helped us out with a couple of difficult situations (not related to the villa) and left us some local treats and fruit. There are two nice seaside towns about 20 minutes drive away and the historic village of Vamos close by. We hope to be back again one day.
