Additional Location Information

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.
