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.

Superb villa, wonderful hosts!

5 of 5
The villa is lovely and not overlooked by anyone. The electronic front gate gives an increased sense of security, albeit that isn't required as this is one of the safest and friendliest islands that we have visited. The road outside doesn't have pavements and is quite fast, so we wouldn't advise walking anywhere, but that aside the location is good, only 10/15 minutes by cars from numerous restaurants etc. The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful, and Valia's cakes were very good. The villa is great for sunbathing and the beach was very quiet when we visited at the end of May / start of June. We would definitely return to the island and this villa.

Beautiful villa in peaceful location

5 of 5
1891 home is an immaculate villa in a lovely location. 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.
