Chania Prefecture, Crete
Villa Halcyon stands majestically above the village of Kokkino Chorio in the beautiful Apokoronas region of North West Crete. With far reaching views across the village to the Akrotiri Peninsular beyond and the shimmering coastline of Souda Bay below, this is one of the best locations in the area. The villa is stunning and very stylishly presented with materials and colours chosen to reflect the natural colours of the area. Constructed in the local traditional way , the villa is light, airy and cool. Several sandy beaches are nearby and a host of amenities in Kalives/Almirida and Vamos are all within 10 minutes drive of the villa.

You will enjoy wide unobstructed views of the azure blue Mediterranean Sea, from sunrises over the water to sunset views across Souda Bay and the Akrotiri peninsular. Because of its hillside location, the vil...

Arrived on the 14th july. On the 15th it became clear the infinity pool was not functioning correctly as it should over flow in order to keep clean.The pool level was a couple of inches to low.The property manager attended and noticed the tank supplying the pool was empty.This was because the water supply was off and he would make enquiries as to when it would be back on.We pointed out that other nearby properties were receiving deliveries of water by tanker and that this was an issue before our arrival.He explained that the water supply was erratic and the pool had been ok but would lose water by evaporation.He returned on the 17th to check and clean the pool which was a bit odd as he knew it wasn't working and asked any water yet? erm no.He then left.This now left the daily task of removing the dead bugs from the pool to be done with the net made more difficult as the handle was missing which mean't getting in with them.20th july the water has run out to the villa and the pool tank...

This is a high quality Villa with stunning views over the Souda Bay. A very big thumbs up from the adults in our party of six. For the teenagers it was probably a bit too remote - the nearest shops and taverna are a few km away in Kokkino Chorio and the beach is a 15 - 20 minute drive (Almyrida). Though the restaurant at the St George's retreat is within walking distance and was superb. So - a compromise was that on most days we lounged around by the pool through till lunch and then headed to the beach or sightseeing nearby.

The infinity pool was absolutely excellent and we spend many hours floating, drink nearby, watching the cruise liners and warships coming into and out of the bay.

The support staff were superb, regular cleaning of the house and excellent maintenance of the pool - and done in a friendly and non-intrusive way - whilst we lounged about. We had the misfortune to discover two wasp nests in the garden of the Villa - but a simple phone call brought...

About the neighbourhood
Kokkino Chorio 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 Greek’ based on the novel by Nikos Kazantzakis the internationally famous Cretan writer. Still the owner of the local ‘kafenion’ 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...
