Villa -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Chania Prefecture, Crete

Villa Kapare stands on the edge of the hillside at the end of the traditional Cretan village of Kokkino Chorio, where the famous movie “Zorba the Greek” was filmed , on a quiet, enviable position, 40 meters only from a little square in the heart of the village. It was the main Cafenion (traditional coffee bar) of the village and without doubt its most captivating feature is the huge vine covered terrace on the seaward side with absolutely mesmerizing, panoramic view of the coastline below.

About the neighbourhood
The village Kokkino Chorio is famous for its role in the film of “Zorbas the Greek', based on the novel by Nikos Kazantzakis the internationally famous Cretan writer, in which the protagonist was Anthony Quinn.

The family run-taverna 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.
There are little whitewashed houses and narrow streets that wind around the village centre. At the village kafenion you can find older locals who were used as extras in the film, and they will happily show you photos o...
