The Crete region
Crete is the largest and one of the most substantial of the Greek islands.It has varied geography ranging from mountains to fertile plains and two big cities Chania and Heraklion. The island is surprisingly cosmopolitan and has a unique history.
Crete is known as the home of Europe's earliest civilisation and is the seat of the legendary Minoan empire... Excavations at Knossos and Festos have revealed the secrets of King Minos and the Cretan society that ruled the Greek world.
Villa Skye is a 7 min walk from Kokkinohorio at the end of a lane giving it a great deal of privacy.Kokkinohorio itself is a traditional Greek village with magnificent views over Souda bay.Parts of the film Zorbas the Greek were filmed there and quite a fiew locals say they are related to him ! There are three taverns and a shop also a small glass workshop that you must visit see .Have a look at the photograph in the main photo section.Plaka is the nearest village 1 klm away
Plaka is a friendly little village, set out in a horseshoe shape on the hillside, with an excellent view of Almyrida and of course Souda Bay and the azure Sea of Crete.
The village is green with plants and largely preserves its lovely natural environment, as it is set on the slopes of Mount Drapanokefala with its verdant, varied vegetation. You can see olive and plane trees, low scrub and even organic farms, which do not detract from the charm of the area.
Plaka has a lovely main square which is the focal point of the village. This is where locals and visitors alike meet in the cafeterias and kafeneia.
The inhabitants of Plaka are mostly farmers, and the production of olive oil, wine and tsikoudia (raki) is widespread.
In the local shops and tavernas you will find very good local wine, both to drink while you’re there and to take away with you.
