The Apokoronas area is just to the east of the beautiful, historic Venetian city of Chania,

frequently compared to glamorous St.Tropez before mass tourism, and includes the beach villages

of Almerida and Kalives, the traditional villages of Plaka, Vamos, Gavalachori, Kokkino Chorio,

and country villages such as Kefalas and Litsarda.  From the myriad blues of the clear,

calm, ever changing Mediterranean sea, the clean white, sandy beaches, the white Lefka Ori

mountains with the longest gorge in Europe, lush olive and orange groves, the scent of the wild

thyme and majestic pine trees surrounding unspoilt, villages built from local stone, even the

occasional donkey -  Crete has it all. Increasingly popular with Northern Europeans, Apokoronou

has become slightly more cosmopolitan whilst firmly retaining its Cretan heritage and culture.


This area has long been a popular destination for holiday makers but is far removed from brash

tourism. With only a few large hotels in the area, Apokoronou appeals particularly to those wishing

to travel more independently without the 'pre-package' feel. Crete is compact enough to explore and

travel around easily and yet large enough to never get bored. By choosing a villa holiday you will

have a chance to experience the real Crete, become part of the island but with all the security and

convenience of our services should you need us.
