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 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.

Favorite of ours - bedroom balcony overlooking Souda Bay in the distance. Property very clean, starter pack in fridge much appreciated and all there that you needed. Wifi was a bonus, books and games on the side welcome entertainment for evenings. Walked down to village to eat at Takis Restaurant frequently - steep short-cut leads down to village (just behind garden). Supermarket nearby, bar and other restaurants in village or further down the hill in Almyrida. We would recommend property to small group of friends (4) or small family for a quiet holiday in lovely surrounding. Rental Car a must.

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!

We experienced the wonderful little world of Lily’s cottage, a breathe taking, cozy farmhouse in an olive grove with a magnificent view to the sea. It is a little gem in a tranquil location, further enough away from the hustle and bustle of the town but close enough to enjoy it. The cottage even in November is amazing. Maybe you can’t enjoy the nice pool but you enjoy for sure the fireplace instead. Personally I found it more romantic. Lily, the host, is a wonderful person herself. She went above and beyond to make sure we had a lovely holiday. We highly recommend Lily’s cottage even this season. We will back soon
