Our fourth holiday in Kokkino Chorio and by far the most beautiful villa we have stayed in. Spotlessly clean, comfortably furnished - a true home from home. We have done little but spend long, hot, lazy days by the pool before enjoying our evening meals in Almyrida. All justified by having walked the Samaria Gorge for a second time! We take with us unforgettable memories - glorious sunsets, goat bells tinkling as the herd comes down in the evenings and the moon rising behind the mountain at night to name but a few.

Many thanks for the welcome pack and thanks to the property managers for their help. So sad to be going but hope to be back next year.

Simply excellent - there was nothing you could fault for comfort, position or convenience

  • 5 of 5

Blue Harbour Villa is simply excellent; it has a beautiful position on the hillside with spectacular views over Souda Bay and the Akrotiri, but is only ten-fifteen minutes drive from the beach and all the facilities you could want. It's beautifully appointed and very spacious, and the private pool completes the feeling of luxury. I would recommend it without reservation to anyone wanting a quiet getaway, but with shops and tavernas within easy reach, and twenty minutes gets you to the National Highway and easy access to all sorts of places. A 100% terrific holiday experience - we very much hope to be back.
