Chania Prefecture, Crete
The Villa was names ‘’Kapare’’ by the area where it stands, which was named Kapare because of the caper bushes (Capparis spinosa) that were growing thoroughly there in the past.
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. There, in a bygone age, the old men of the village, sat looking out the Souda Bay, wondering when the next pirate ship might appear over the horizon!

The quaint village of Chania has breathtaking elevations from every angle, and most of them can be enjoyed from inside this charming villa. The hosts were most thoughtful, thorough and welcoming of our party, and took every measure to ensure that our experience in Crete was wonderful. They met us at the home to welcome us, and dined with us...
