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 labor of love, Villa Apoi is decorated with a combination of style and timeless beauty, with textures and accents of the unique Mediterranean style. The refined ambience combined with a broad range of services and amenities – including the free use of iPad device, guarantee the extra factor that will make your holiday in Crete even more special.
All our facilities and services have been carefully designed to reflect the famous Cretan hospitality, where every guest is treated like family – yet in an unobtrusive way. 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 location of the property is ideal as a starting point for exploring the Apokoronas area by car or even by foot – nature lovers will enjoy the many hikes and trails of the area.
For all the rest that prefer the comfort of an air-conditioned car, we can provide all the information you need for local sites and nearby braches, or we can help you organise themed excursions, tours, boat trips or even horse back riding.
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 3 steps: on the upper one stands a fully equipped kitchen and a large wooden dining table, on the lower the living room with the comfortable large linen sofa. On the same level there is a queen size bedroom with en-suite bathroom, fitted with marble sink, teak furniture and a shower column with hydromassage.
On the first floor, two bedrooms are carefully located on two opposite ends to ensure complete privacy of the guests, and each comes with own terrace. 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 and enjoy maximum privacy, panoramic views, private balcony and access to the largest terrace with outdoor jacuzzi/hot tub.
Kokkino Chorio (or "Red Village") is a beautiful and quite 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 from the owner himself or you can simply buy handcrafted glass pieces for your friends and family back home.
