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.

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.

Clearly well kept and well managed we were welcomed locally by the representative, and the owner. Technology in abundance and a fantastic view over the bay. Locally the food and nightlife was great value for money - having spent week 1 in Rethymno where things were more costly! The pool and the view made this villa worthy of recommendation!

Lots of nice flowers in the garden with a gorgeous pool. The area of Plaka is a vibrant little village with lots of tavernas serving delicious Cretian food. Taki's was our favourite taverna as the owner had a tendency to ply us with lots of free wine. Plaka is also within walking distance of Almyrida which has a lovely beach with lots of choices of where to eat and drink. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and look forward to my next visit. Thanks to the owners!

As we did not have a car, it was great that there were 3 tavernas in walking distance all serving delicious food. We were regular visitors to the traditional taverna in Kokkino Chorio village square for morning coffee and cake and for a few beers in the early evening. When we visited the beach and restaurants in Almyrida bay we found the local taxi service to be very efficient. The highlight of the trip was jumping and diving from the rocks into the clear blue sea at the local Kokkino Chorio beach. We will return.
