Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Kokkino Chorio, Crete your home away from home

The small, traditional Greek village of Kokkino Chorio (Red Village) lies on the rugged coastline of Souda Bay in Crete, with a dramatic backdrop of the peaks of the White Mountains. Eagle eyed travellers will recognise the village for its staring role in the film ‘Zorbas the Greek’, but it is the sensational walking and rugged coastline that really appeals to travellers and those staying in Kokkino Chorio accommodation.

Things to do in Kokkino Chorio, Crete

The beautiful child friendly beaches of the Apokoronas Peninsula and Almirida are just a few short kilometres from a Kokkino Chorio villa, offering endless hours of sunbathing in the Greek sun. The local beaches are perfect for sailing, wind surfing and fishing, and on occasions, the waves are large enough to surf. Souda Bay, the largest deep water port in the Mediterranean, is a magnificent place from which to catch ferries into the Aegean Islands.

A holiday rental property in Kokkino Chorio is also a magnificent base from which to explore the stunning landscapes of the White Mountains, the Apokoronas Peninsula and the Chania coastline. Walking, cycling and mountain biking holidays absolutely thrive from Kokkino Chorio properties, with a great range of market trails emanating in every direction.

Although Kokkino Chorio is a tiny settlement, there are actually a couple of attractions well worth exploring. The small art gallery specialises in art focusing on Cretan lifestyles and landscapes, and there is a small hand-made glass factory offering tours just on the village outskirts, as well as two wonderful little tavernas. However, the majority of bars, restaurants, cafes and shops in the area are found elsewhere, in local towns including Almirida and Kalives as well as Chania, the largest town in the region.

Places to visit on holiday in Kokkino Chorio, Crete

Chania is well worth a few hour’s exploration from a self catering Kokkino Chorio villa. Chania is a stunning town, especially around its world famous Venetian Harbour, and holds a huge number of attractions worthy of a visit. This is the main centre for wine tasting excursions, boat trips and sightseeing tours, and the many restaurants and cafes serve only the finest of local cuisine.

Chania International Airport (CHQ) is just 40 minutes from a holiday rental home in Kokkino Chorio, Crete. There are a surprising range of direct flights to Chania from the UK, with First Choice Airways and ThomsonFly providing the lion’s share of direct flights.

We had the most enjoyable stay in November 2016. Everything is immaculate, it felt like we were the first people to ever stay there. It has everything you could possibly need for your stay and the host left us some much appreciated goodies including traditional baked goods, water, beer, fruit and muesli! The view and outside space was our favourite part, the upstairs terrace is huge - we didn't use it much as we spent most of our time on the downstairs terrace by the pool. The property has clear views to the sea and feels completely private. The village itself is small and quiet but very friendly and nice for an afternoon walk. You will need a car If you want to explore further. We highly recommend this property and look forward to returning!

The peace was lovely, with very few people around we mostly had the beach to ourselves. The family run restaurant next door was great, the food was delicious and the family were very friendly and welcoming. We would definitely return to the villa and have in fact already discussed our return. The one criticism we had was it would have been nice to have been given some basics like soap washing powder, tea and coffee and also things like the kettle could have been of better quality. However it has not changed our discussion in our rating because the villa was just what we wanted.

Large bedrooms, well equiped kitchen and the huge living room and nice terrace have a wonderful view to the white mountains. The pool is large and well maintained and behind (one terrace below) is even a nice garden where our kids loved to play. We were with 3 young children (5,4 and2) and it was very easy to close the stairs to the swimming pool with a chair, so our youngsters could not enter the pool unguided. That felt very safe. Mrs Frosso came by every day to maintain the house. She is really Nice, speaks English and knows a lot of the environment. The house is situated in a litlle village with a bakery, a few little supermarkets and Some Nice restaurants. It is a little but charming and friendly village. Nearby in Almyrida is a Nice beach (safe for little Children). I really can recommend this beautiful house!
