Chania Prefecture, Crete
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 love. At one end of the marble edged pools th...

This is a fantastic villa with amazing views of the bay. We stayed here as a couple and found the villa very spacious for just the two of us. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need and there was a lovely welcome pack...More

About the neighbourhood
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...
