About our home


Villa Apo Petra resides in an enviable position just outside the village of Kokkino Chorio where, back in the 60s, the film Zorba the Greek was filmed with Antony Quinn. Kokkino Chorio really is a traditional village which maintains its farming roots. Its envious location enjoys amazing sea and mountain views from its spectacular elevated position high up on the Drapanokefalas Mountain, however, the Villa has easy access to local restaurants in Place (4 minutes drive) and Almyrida (7 minutes drive). Almyrida is our local beach resort with an abundance of tavernas and cafes lining the sea front as well as water sports and convenience stores.

Our villa is 3 bedrooms, sleeping up to 6 people. Arrangements are 1 x king (upstairs) 1 x king (downstairs) 1 x twin (upstairs). We have 2 shower rooms with WC. Private pool 4 x 10m, multiple terraces for sunbathing. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need including a cooker, microwave, fridge-freezer and dishwasher. Upstairs is the washing machine. Our villa sits in half an acre of private land with a long driveway up to property with car hardstanding for parking.

A trip to our villa is ideal for some real Greek style rest and relaxation. The sunrise and sunsets are spectacular. You won't want to leave.

Where is it?


We sit high up on the mountain with spectacular views. The birds of prey fly high up above you as you lay back in the pool and we wave at the shepherd as he takes his flock of sheep and goats down to lower ground to feed. At night the blanket of the Milky Way can be seen with its shooting stars through the non light polluted sky. The view out from all aspects of the Villa look down the largest natural harbour in the Mediterranean - Souda Bay and to the East the view is out to the Aegean Sea. Our little village of Kokkino Chorio is charming and very traditional. It hosts just one little convenience store and a taverna but is adorned with little white washed houses with the most beautiful deep pink bougainvillaea. The people are friendly and welcoming.
