Kokkino Chorio (or "Red Village") is a beautiful and quiet village situated in the Apokoronas area, 28 km off Chania on the way to Rethymnon. Already appreciated by Hollywood location hunters, the tiny village was the filming location for the village scenes of the 1964 film Zorba the Greek starring Anthony Quinn. Filled with pretty small lanes and low houses with old Venetian arches, it will transport you instantly to another era. Kokkino Chorio 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.
In the village central square is the central church and facing it you will find a kafeneio serving local delicacies and grilled meat dishes. Around the corner, you can find mini market selling a range of household essentials along with British staples.
On the edge of the village and within 5 min. drive of the villas is a Glass blowing factory. 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 from the owner himself, except Mondays. Afterwards, you can buy original handcrafted glass pieces for your friends and family back home.
Kokkino Chorio is ideally located as the starting point for many walks and private excursions with private transport around the area. We provide in each villa a selection of city guide books and special editons with hikes and trails of the Apokoronas area.
