About the property

Adeste Villas

Adeste Villas is a cluster of stylish, newly completed villas with private pools apiece. Situated on the outskirts of Kokkino Horio (Red Village), the villas enjoy all the privileges of a hilltop location such as spectacular views, dramatic sunsets and cool mountain breezes. Staying in one of these gorgeous adjoining - yet autonomous- villas, each guest will enjoy a relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting. The plot enjoys an excellent prospect on the surrounding White mountains and the Souda Bay in the distance.

Particular attention has been given to the interior and exterior design of each villa. The result is a mosaic of Mediterranean colours and accents, ranging from whites, turquoise and aqua greens to timeless creams and browns: a combination of style and timeless beauty. The elegant ambience goes hand in hand with a broad spectrum amenties and services – many included and many more on request.

With each property sleeping from a lonely two up to a party of 6 or 8, Adeste Villas is ideal for honeymooners, families and larger groups. Despite their similar ground plans, each villa can boast for its individual design and welcoming atmosphere, highlighted by unique art works and beautiful artefacts.

“An inviting and warm place like home, where you can experience style and five star comfort at the same time”

Thanks to the fully functional kitchens, guests are induced to stay and fully enjoy the villas at night with quiet, private meals of their own making or from the skilled hands of a personal chef or a traditional local cook. All our facilities and services have been carefully designed to reflect the famous Cretan hospitality, where every guest is treated like family – yet in an unobtrusive way. Apart from a large number of included services and amenities, each guest can benefit from a list of exclusive services which can be arranged at an extra charge.

The location of the property is ideal as a starting point for exploring the Apokoronas area by car or even by foot – nature lovers will enjoy the many hikes and trails of the area.

For all the rest that prefer the comfort of an air-conditioned car, we can provide all the information you need for local sites and nearby beaches, or we can help you organise themed excursions, tours, boat trips or even horse back riding by the coast.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed for 10 days from the 7/6/14 ,

We were in villa Apoi, a great villa with a fantastic view of Souda bay.

The view of the sunset every evening will take a lot of beating!

Villa is of high quality on three levels, the lift to all floors came in very useful.

The whole villa/experience for us was great and I would highly recommend a stay.

George who looks after the villas was very helpfully and on hand if we needed him.

We dinned in the local tavernas, our favourite Fina de racha (Italian) and Emerald (traditional with Japanese twist/ great location) both in plaka 1.5km from villa. On a few occasions we ordered a meal in from the local restaurant which was excellent. A great Villa,location and Holiday.

Stunning Place - they thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

My Family and I spent a week in one of the Adeste Villas and it was superb. From the interior finishings to the lovely pool and amazing sunsets, you can tell no effort is spared and they thought of everything.

We were greeted at the airport and shown the way by the owners who were extremely helpful in providing all the tips needed on the Beaches, restaurants and shopping. The Town centre is about 25 mins by car and has a good vibe. There is a local beach near by 2 minutes by Car which is beautiful, but we spent more time in the pool and admiring the views.

if you want to relax with the family (we have 3 young daughters) this is certainly the place. Restaurants nearby do deliver and the property has all you need if you want a good home cooked meal.

Will recommend for anyone with a family and Crete is just stunning.

Beautiful sunsets and 5 star service

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival, we were welcomed by the entire team: Yorgos, Irene and Natasa (one of the owners and responsible for the wonderful concierge service). We were quickly shown to the rooms and the many facilities, but from the moment we stepped in we set our eyes to the pool area: although it is not the biggest pool you will find, the exteriors resembled those of a luxury hotel with large stone tiles and expensive teak furniture. (The kids loved the pool toys as well!) The iPad provided for free was preloaded with guide boooks, great music (looooved the selection) and travel magazines we devoured… The welcome basket was one of the best I have received – we did not have to go the supermarket for some days and since we were all children free we received a special signature welcome cocktail made of prosecco and bitter almond juice.

I personally enjoyed more the jacuzzi area: it is not next to the pool but on the top floor terrace, thus enjoying privacy and breathtaking views of Souda Bay and the White Mountains. Villa Apoi does not simply offer a beautiful setting for your vacation: without being intruding, the staff provides excellent guidance, a 24/7 online concierge service that booked excursions, restaurant tables for us and even ordered in meals – hot and yummy- from a local restaurant .

Finally, upon our departure Natasa offered to the ladies of the groups a set of chic handmade accessories I am planning to wear for the rest of the summer!

Thank you, guys for the effort!

Koutalas beach
Car: recommended

Nearby braches:

• Koutalas (1.5 km): Isolated and unspoilt beach, close to the edge of Cape Drepano with interesting cave formations, like the ‘Elephants’ Cave’. Make sure that you have all the necessities, such as shade, food and water. To get here you should follow the road leading north from the village Kokkino Chorio to the Drepano Cape and then follow the road to Faros. About 700m further north, you will see the sign to Koutalas. From there a very good dirt track leads directly on the beach.

• Almirida beach (3km): Two sandy beaches separated by a rocky peninsula. The larger has good facilities (sun beds, sea sport activities, fish restaurants, cafes) and shallow transparent waters. Ideal for families or crowd seekers.

• Kalives beach (6km): sun beds & sandy beach, restaurants, not exposed to wind , beach volley

• Kiani Akti or Blue Beach (1km after Kalyves): Long quiet beach with sun beds and small canteens for drinks and snacks. In the middle of the beach is the exit of river Kiliaris, transferring water from the top of the White Mountains – warm water lovers, beware!

• Kera (5km): Sandy beach between Kalives and Almirida which is formed at the end of a green hill. As it is not organized, it is ideal for visitors that prefer less crowded sites. Close to the beach is the church of Panagia Kera, a picturesque 19th century chapel which was built in the site of an older monastery. Follow the concrete-paved road between Kalives and Almirida leading to the beach after 500m.

• Ombrogialos (8 km): Small rocky bay with green and blue deep waters between Paleloni and Kefalas. Actually it consists of a dock, used for diving and sunbathing. The sea around the Ombrogialos is ideal for snorkeling and windsurfing. Above the dock is a fish tavern, popular to sea divers. You can acess the beach by car through the asphalt road that starts from Paleloni. Contact us for information on snorkeling and scuba lessons.

• 1.5km to nearest beach (Koutalis beach), 3km to Almyrida beach

• 1.5 to Plaka (restaurants, mini market, hardware store, petrol station)

• 300m to the village centre and nearest amenities (mini-market, taverna)

• 3km to Almyrida (supermarket, ATM, pharmacy, butcher, diving lessons, water sports and fish restaurants/cafes)

• 6km to Kalyves (Post Office, Bank, Pharmacy, large supermarket, butcher, car rental, petrol station, church)

• 9km to Vamos (24hr emergency clinic)

• 18 km from Lake Kournas and the sandy beach of Georgioupoli, which extends for 9km

• 30km to nearest airport at Chania (150km to Heraklion)

• 28km to Chania
