To the reader of this review, this is a lovely quiet villa, the vista from either of the balconies is worth the cost of rental alone and that is truly only just the beginning of what is on offer. Three bedrooms, one with a double...More

About the neighbourhood
Kokkino taverna and mini market are just a short walk (or 2 minute drive) from Villa Apo Petra. The family run traditional taverna is shaded by weeping willow trees, and has delicious food and very friendly owners (Zacharias and his son Yiannis) who know everything about the village and the surrounding area. During the summer months there are occasional live Cretan music nights at the taverna (once a month or so), which are a lot of fun. Kokkino Horio (“red village” in Greek) was the main village set for the film “Zorba the Greek”. There are little whitewashed houses and narrow streets that wind around the village center. At the village kafenion you can find older locals who were used as extras in the film, and they will happily show you photos of themselves with Anthony Quinn. Also located in the in the village is the famous glass blowing workshop. Here you can watch recycled glass being blown in the traditional manner, into amazingly beautiful products including lampshades, ornaments, decanters, plates and bowls. Directly behind the Villa, further up the mountain, you will see the old WW2 German look out post. Upon further inspection you can meander down the stairs deep inside the mountain where you will see the rooms used for storing supplies, sleeping and commanding military operations. There are numerous caves inside (you will need a good torch!) and the stairs eventually bring you out into the open space where there stands a tiny picturesque church;The Church of St George which was erected in place of the original church building which was destroyed in the war - however its ruins still stand proud. A monument marking those that died from the Village and surrounding area also resides here. This really is a fascinating piece of history right on your doorstep.
How to get there
Airport: Chania: 30 km Ferry: Souda: 15 km An easy 40 minute drive from Chania Airport.
