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.

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.

                                                                                                      I have just returned from the most relaxing stay in this 'superb' villa. It is slightly off the beaten track in a sleepy Cretan village which boasts a friendly taverna, church and local shop. However, 5 minutes by car is Plaka, another fabulous village with a great selection of traditional taverna's and bars. You can't stop here without eating in 'Elpis' - which has been highly acclaimed by the Telegraph as one of the top Crete eateries. A few minutes further you will find the beautiful white sandy beaches of Kalives and Almyryda with more bars and restaurants to choose from, most of which I ate in during my stay. Here you can use the beach sunbeds for free on the basis that you buy a drink from the hotel. I didn't have a bad meal...all were freshly prepared with swift and friendly service. The villa is situated in Kokkino Chorio which is very peaceful with only a shop, church and local taverna, owned by Yiannis and his family who will ensure you a warm welcome and great hospitality. It was so relaxing, again with beautiful views. Here you can enjoy a night with the locals and enjoy a Raki or two! The local white wine was great and very cheap and you can purchase bottles/cartons of this in the local shops. I didn't try the red or rose so cannot comment. The villa is situated in the most stunning location. It is spotlessly clean, well equipped and offers the most comfortable beds. I guarantee that you will leave completely de-stressed. There was ample wardrobe space, perfect for a group of friends or family.The pool is cleaned regularly and the grounds are well maintained. The villa enjoys the sun all day with a light breeze occasionally which was very much welcomed - even in May. There is also a roof terrace which you can enjoy with comfortable sun beds allocated to Villa Venus. A dishwasher, wifi access and a washing machine are added features with views to die for in the covered dining area on the first floor adjacent to the kitchen. Although the villa shares a pool with others, this particular property enjoys its own sunbathing space which doesn't impact the other villas so there is no need to fight for your perfect spot!! The owners and management of this property obviously care and pay great attention to detail. I think this property is very reasonably priced considering the unique and stunning location. The only negative about this holiday, was that it was over too soon. Fantastic!!
