Area Description

Kokkino Chorio

Kokkino Chorio is an unspoilt, traditional village in the region of Apokoronas in Chania, located high on the mountain and offers breath-taking views over the Bay of Souda. The village was one of the sites used in the 1964 film Zorba the Greek. It is a small, hospitable village with a couple of small shops, kafeneion and tavern. More shops and restaurants can be found in the village of Plaka, 3kms away. Kokkino Chorio features a glass factory which produces handmade glass, using traditional glass blowing techniques. The coastline northwest of the village is a very interesting place for a stroll due to the ground formation and the various caves.


Apokoronas is situated at the feet of White Mountains in the north-eastern corner of the prefecture of Chania and is one of the greenest regions of Crete. The area features numerous interesting sights, such as Lake Kournas, the island’s only freshwater lake and the archaeological site of Aptera with its superb views of Souda Bay. Apokoronas features an abundance of historic and picturesque villages with traditional taverns and thriving seaside resorts with beautiful sandy beaches along the coast like Kalyves, Almyrida and Georgioupolis.
