The small village of Kalo Chorio, also spelt Kalo Horio, is adjoining the coastal village of Istron and just a little further inland. However it is still within easy walking distance of the local beaches. “Kalo Chorio” means “good village” and is on the north coast of Crete, 10km from the harbour town of Agios Nikolaos in the Lasithi region. Surrounded by citrus and olive groves, pine-covered mountains and small gardens of local produce, it is a picturesque working Cretan village. It warmly welcomes the few tourists who come to stay in holiday rentals in Kalo Chorio.

                                                              Superb Villa

                                                              We have just spent a very enjoyable two weeks at this lovely villa in the tiny village of Prina. If you want peace and quiet, this is the place. The village is lovely and there is an excellent taverna 50 yards away where Dimitri and his wife Stella will both feed you with home cooked Cretan food and entertain you with music of Crete at a very reasonable price. The owner of the villa (and three others close by), Nikos is most attentive and came every day to see if we needed anything or had any problems. He also brought us three carrier bags full of tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers during our stay. He is a delightful man. Although the road down to the coast is steep and tortuous, it is of good quality and leads you to numerous places on the island. Agios Nikolaos is only about thirty minutes away, Elounda is a little further, but both are well worth a visit. The new national Road almost stretches from one end of the island to the other so many places are accessible. In our two weeks I drove just over one thousand miles and visited many towns and villages, all delightful. I would recommend this villa to everyone, built in stone and beautifully furnished with a pool and massive patio and patio furniture. My wife and I loved every minute of it.

                                                              Excellent Villa with everything you could need

                                                              We had a fantastic time with glorious weather in a fabulously appointed villa, we couldn't think of a thing that hadn't been helpfully provided. Thanks to Godfrey and Diane for the use of your villa and to Linda and Ian who were so welcoming and thoughtful. The trip to Spinalonga was very enjoyable and the restaurant at Amadoura beach was good with friendly staff. Walk to Kato Zakos through the gorge was very good. Market on Wednesday morning at Ag Nic is worth seeing. Cretans mostly charming despite us not speaking a word of Greek!

                                                              The villa offered all the amenities you could want. Spotless and everything worked. Pool was a blessing. The location made it easy to get to most the of the places we wanted to see in east Crete. I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone wanting to stay on the east end.
