Location


Kokkino Chorio is a beautiful area located in the Apokoronas region of West Crete. It is a small, traditional Greek village situated on the rugged coast with magnificent across Souda Bay to the Akrotiri Peninsular. To the south the White Mountains provide a dramatic backdrop.

The village is famous for its role in the film of “Zorbas the GreekĘ based on the novel by Nikos Kazantzakis the internationally famous Cretan writer. Still the owner of the local °kafenionĘ in the centre of the village is proud to talk about Antony Quinn and show his photographs.

A small glass workshop on the outskirts of Kokkino Chorio recycles glass to produce items from “blown” glass. This process can be observed in the mornings and purchases can be made of beautiful lamps and glass ornaments produced.

Overlooking Kokkino Chorio is the strangely shaped Drapanokefala Mountain or Calapodha (so named during the Venetian occupation). The coastline northwest of the village is an extremely interesting place for experienced walkers, with its ground formation and caves, such as the caves of Petsi (or Karavotopos) and Katalimata, which is located at the centre of the village. At cape Drapano, approximately 10 metres under water, is the impressive Elephant Cave, an area 60m≤ full of stalactites and stalagmites of various shapes and colours.

The village of Kokkino Chorio (meaning Red Village) is located on an altitude of 150m, away from the hustle of the towns and tourists. It is an unspoilt Cretan village with breathtaking views over the Souda Bay, the Cretan Sea and of the Lefka Ori (White Mountains), and has maintained its traditional architectural style. In the village a part of the famous movie “Zorba the Greek”, starring Anthony Quinn, Alan Bates, Irene Papas was filmed in 1964. Nowadays it is a perfect place to enjoy the real Cretan live; in the village are available tavern, kafenia and small shops, and the beachside resort of Almirida is just a 5min (6km) drive away.

Kalives a few villages away, is an agricultural village of some size including a bank with ATM, travel agencies, schools, post office, bakeries, butchers, etc. and the airport of Chania is about 45min away and the port at Souda 30min; whilst the towns of Chania and Rethymno are within approx. 35min. reachable.
