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.

                                                                          5 of 5
                                                                          The Villa is in a quiet location near to the Village centre where there is a good taverna (and another 300 metres away near the glass factory). If you feel energetic or do not mind walking there is "The Retreat" restaurant further up the hill. And, you can either drive or we found it easy enough to walk down to Plaka to use the restaurants down there as well. There is a small well stocked supermarket that manages to have all the items to cater for most needs and taste. We have been to Kokkino Chorio many times and the locals are very friendly. The Villa itself is inverted in that the bedrooms and bathroom is downstairs and the large lounge/kitchen is upstairs with balconies at the side and front. The balconies have excellent views over Souda Bay so that you can enjoy a drink and watch the sunset go down before going out for a meal. We found the Villa to be clean and well maintained with all the facilities that we needed. The side balcony had enough shade for us to enjoy our breakfast without overheating. There is a small garden off the downstairs bedroom giving access to the swimming pool. We particularly liked the ability to put our sun loungers in the shade when it was too hot. We found the neighbours to be good company on the occasions that we met them. We know the area fairly well and we find plenty to do when we are there. Of course, you could just stay in the Villa and just enjoy it but then you would miss out on much. There are many attractions, walks and ancient sites to visit. It is worth doing a little research before you go. Strange as it may seem you may also want to visit and reflect on what it must have been like at both the British War Graves at Souda and the German one further along the coast which has a small area recounting the history associated with it. .

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!
