Villa Apoi is a stylish, recently-built villa with private pool. The villa is part of a new villa complex, built on a hill side of Kokkino Horio (Red Village), this enjoying all the privileges of a hilltop location such as spectacular views to the Gulf of Souda and cool mountain breezes.

A labour of love, villa Apoi is decorated with a combination of comfort and beauty, highlighted by elegant touches inspired by the Mediterranean tradition. The refined ambience combined with a broad range of amenities and services guarantee the extra factor that will make your holiday in Crete even more special.

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 unbeatable views, the fragrant gardens with Mediterranean aromatic herbs and shrubs, tall trees carefully placed to ensure maximum privacy and the shaded outdoor sitting areas will quickly engage you into an all senses Greek experience.

The villa consists of 3 levels and is built on the highest level of the plot, enjoying panoramic views ranging from the blue strip of Souda Bay, the scattered Apokoronas villages to the magnificent White Mountains. In front of the villa is a private swimming pool (plus children's pool) with a large suntrap terrace and a dining area for alfresco meals. The design of the villa is ethnic chic, combining timeless pieces in neutral tones with splashes of colors. The ground floor is split in two levels – separated by three steps: on the upper one stands a fully equipped kitchen with a large wooden dining table, while on the lower level is the living room with the comfortable white linen sofa and a log burning stove. On the same floor there is a queen size bedroom with en-suite bathroom, fitted with marble sink, teak furniture and a drench shower.

On the first floor, two bedrooms are carefully located on two opposite ends to ensure complete privacy of the guests - each with own furnished terrace and en-suite bathroom. The first bedroom features a split-king bed that can be separated or joined, depending on the guests' needs. All bedrooms can guarantee maximum sleeping experience thanks to the top-notch mattresses, the pillow selection service and the large TV screen. The romantics will find refuge in the canopy bed of the second room, dotted with a large terrace furnished with sunloungers.

Take the elevator to the top floor suite to enjoy maximum privacy, panoramic views, private balcony and access to the largest terrace with outdoor jacuzzi/hot tub.

Kokkino Chorio

Kokkino Chorio (or "Red Village") is a beautiful and quiet village situated in the Apokoronas area, 28 km off Chania on the way to Rethymno city. Already appreciated by Hollywood location hunters, the straggly village was the filming location for the village scenes of the 1964 film Zorba the Greek starring Anthony Quinn. Filled with pretty tiny lanes and low houses with old Venetian arches, it will transport you instantly to another era. Kokkino Horio is also known for a wide underground bunker network used in World War II by the Germans to watch over Souda Bay for security and comfort. From the point of Cape Drapano there was a cableway to the entrance of the bunker. Located by the watchtower, 2km outside Kokkino Horio, they were equipped with amenities such as a movie theater and a restaurant – all derelict now.

In the village central square is the central church and facing it you will find a kafeneio serving local delicacies or handmade breakfast dishes from scratch. Around the corner, you can find a couple of small shops and cafes, a bakery and mini market selling a range of household essentials along with British staples like mint sauce.

On the edge of the village and within 5 min. walking distance of the villas is the Glass blowing factory in the village with a bio taverna attached. You can recognise it from the impressive piles of glass bottles outside it. If you feel like combining holiday time with learning, you can watch demonstrations of the glass blowing process or simply buy original handcrafted glass pieces for your friends and family back home.

Kokkino Horio is ideally located as the starting point for many walks and private excursions with private transport around the area.
