The hilltop village of Kokkino Horio, with its narrow streets and topsy-turvy houses, was the main village location for the film “Zorba the Greek”. With an elevated position on the rural outskirts of the village, Bay View Villa enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of Souda Bay and The White Mountains, to the Akrotiri Penisula where the sun sets beautifully and the lights twinkle at night. This setting is dramatic and peaceful, but also conveniently close to the taverna and well stocked mini market in the village centre, and only a few kilometres from the sandy beach and many amenities in Almyrida. The current owner's father was a swimming pool designer in Athens so it is therefore no surprise that the pools at Bay View Villas are beautifully made and have a unique feature that everyone will...The hilltop village of Kokkino Horio, with its narrow streets and topsy-turvy houses, was the main village location for the film “Zorba the Greek”.

At one end of the marble edged pools there is a built-in bench situated next to hydro massage jets. This may be most enjoyable at night when romantic couples could experience a relaxing hydro massage whilst sipping a cocktail and looking out over the moonlit bay. A small grassy lawn next to the pool terrace is ideal for younger family members to play whilst their parents relax. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: MHTE 1042K91003072301 More

This was a superb villa with all modern amenities and wonderful views over Souda Bay. Not overlooked, with a wonderful swimming pool this was an ideal villa. A quiet location on the outskirts of a pretty village, situated on the side of a steep hill...More

Okay, even the company rep' who provided this villa was quick to point out that it wasn't in the 'luxury' category (I'd naively asked if there were beach towels at the property). It is on the small side. In fact, I still have a bruise...More

About the neighborhood
Kokkino Horio taverna and mini market are an 8 minute walk from Bay View Villa. The family run-taverna is shaded by weeping willow trees, and 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. Kokkino Horio (“red village” in Greek) was the main village set for the film “Zorba the Greek”. 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 of themselves with Anthony Quinn. Just 15 minutes walk from Bay View ...
How to get there
An easy 45 minute drive from Chania Airport. Good budget flight options into Chania Airport by Ryan Air and Easy Jet, as well as by charter airlines including Monarch and Thomas Cook. ** Many other flight options from Heraklion Airport which is a 1 hour and 55 minute drive along the pretty coastal highway. ** Excellent value car hire provided by the villa agent. ** Comfortable local taxis (usually Mercedes) can be booked for you by the villa agent.
