About Joan

I live in England with my wife and 2 children. My wife and I both work, but spend most of our holidays in Crete, where we have made many friends and have really fallen in love with the country. We also share the villa with my parents.

Joan purchased this villa in 2006

Why Joan chose Apokoronos

We love Kokino Chorio because of the fantastic facilities in the area. The views are amazing, overlooking Souda Bay. There are some beautiful beaches and Almiriyda boasts a great range of bars and restaurants, which you find most of the locals come to. There really is something for everyone here. The area is easily accessible with Chania airport less than an hours drive away. Chania town is well worth a visit with its old town and small streets to explore. There are plenty of shops and tavernas hidden away.

What makes this villa unique

The property itself is just a ten minute walk to the tiny village of Plaka, where you can enjoy a quiet drink with the locals. Almiriyda is a further ten minutes walk which boasts a beautiful beach and tavernas. The Almiryda Bay hotel has a roof top terrace with a pool, where you can enjoy a beautiful meal whilst the kids play in the pool and the views are fantastic. The property also provides peace and quiet, being set in its own private grounds and only a handful of villas surrounding, you can relax and enjoy knowing that the children are safe.

Wonderful traditionally stone built villa

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time in this charming villa. It really felt like home away from home. It was little things in the villa which made our whole stay so successful. We really enjoyed the pool and evenings on the terrace watching the sun go down. The little garden was big enough for our son to kick a ball around and the plums on the tree were just getting ripe when we were there :-)

The villa is located between two villages: Plaka (an approx. 15 minute downhill walk) which offers good restaurants and supermarkets and Kokkino Chorio (an approx. 10 minute uphill walk) which is a beautiful Greek village with a taverna where you can not only enjoy amazing sunsets over the Souda Bay but also delicious, cold beer. Going there in the morning you find Greeks sitting there playing cards and drinking coffee while in the warm evenings locals sit outside there houses chatting and greeting friendly when someone walks pass.

Only a stone throw away there are beautiful little mountain villages, deserted beaches and caves to explore.

Thanks a lot to the owners! The contact before our stay as well as during our time there was excellent. We got quick responses to all of our queries.

We can certainly recommend this villa to anyone who wants to escape mass tourism without being too far away from shops and restaurants.

We were very sad to leave and go back to cold and rainy Germany.....

Thanks for a wonderful time!

Very relaxing location. Good base to explore the island from. Need a car to get to local shops and local beaches, but all the local people were friendly!

The villa is located approximatly 40min drive from Chania airport and 2hrs from Heraklion airport. The roads from the airports are all good large roads with some areas of dual carriageway. We recomend the use of a hire car to get around the island. We can arrange airport transport from chania for a small local charge if needed or there are taxis. We provide fully detailed directions from both airports and contact numbers of english friends that look after the villa for us in case of any problems


Approx 1 kilometre to the village of Plaka and approx 2 kilometers to the beach town of Almirda.
