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.

Amazing!

5 of 5
We did our research beforehand and expected the house and area to be very nice, it exceeded our expectations completely, and the week we spent in Irini house was one of the best holidays we have had! The village of Vafes is tiny, two tavernas providing delicious locally sourced produce, and a delightful 'Lotus art shop', so if you're looking for a quiet relaxing holiday this is the place, those looking for the bright lights should go to Chania! The nearest beach, is a 10 minute drive away, and has many bars and restaurants along the sea front to enjoy, the beach itself is sandy and shallow so good for children. Vrisses, the nearest sizeable village about a 5-10 min drive, is a working one with few tourists, the shops provide very good value for money food and other supplies if you want to self cater George couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating, very responsive to emails! The property has all mod cons but full of original charm, a lot of time was spent on sympathetically bringing the building back to life. Crete is beautiful, diverse, and very welcoming, we will be back, in fact I'm looking at booking again right now! Thank you George!

Lovely villa and pool but very remote

4 of 5
The villa had everything we needed. Clean, spacious and well equiped. The pool was beautiful. If we had been nearer to taverners and a shop it would then have been perfect. A car was so essential.
