Villa Kokkini is situated in Kokkini Khanion in the tiny village of Vrachokipos with a few cafes and mini marts, where you can find immediate provisions for your holiday. The villa is only seven kilometres from Heraklion International Airport, a short ten minute drive to your holiday home from home.

Located in the North of Crete, equidistant east to west, you’ll have no difficulty getting to any attraction of your choice. Whether you are looking for a relaxing time sunbathing on sandy beaches, yearn for some culture and to visit archaeological sites in the cradle of civilisation, or trek the trails through the local flora and fauna, before dancing the night away, there’s something for everyone with a holiday on the island of Crete. You’ll be spoilt for choice with the three sandy beaches of Tobrouk, Vathianos, and Thalassa Konaki, all within a walking distance of the villa at just over a kilometre away. These soft sandy beaches have easy shallow entry into the calm Aegean Sea, organised sunbeds with shady brollies, lined with family friendly cafes and tavernas where you can sample the local cuisine, and some with water sports activities to keep the kids and adults amused. For those who love walking, explore the three hundred caves the island hides, hike over hillsides, streams, and rocky ravines to discover watermills and ruins, and stop along the way at a local winery and taste the fruits of the many vineyards

The area is soaked in history, particularly Minoan and Dorian, Crete was conquered by the Venetians in the fifteenth century, who built fortresses to keep the Ottoman pirates at bay, then finally gaining independence in the nineteenth century and becoming part of Greece. If you prefer sea to land, all aboard a boat trip where you can scuba or snorkel underwater ruins, and strap on your jet skis or paraglide with one of the many water sports clubs. The town and port of Heraklion is just nine kilometres north of the villa, don’t miss a tour around the ancient Palace of Knossos, a visit to the Heraklion Archaeological Museum, a walk along the Venetian walls, and a stroll through the old quarter, where you can shop for souvenirs, before enjoying a souvlaki and ouzo like a local. Go further afield to Vai, Crete’s eastern most tip, an hour and a half drive away, where you will find lush forests and a unique date palm. Explore Psychro Cave, reputedly the birthplace of Zeus, and rock climb Mount Ida to find the Ideon Cave. Sitia Geopark is three hundred and fifty square kilometres of the island’s diverse eco-system, where you can trek through gorges, bathe on beaches, walk the wetlands, become a bird-watcher, and be at one with nature. Get active and hike the Richtis Gorge, stroll through streams to reach the twenty-metre waterfall, where you can cool off in the inviting pool. Find peace and solitude in the fifteenth century Toplou Monastery, an hour and a half drive through the Cretan countryside to see beautiful Byzantine icons. Take a boat tour to visit the intriguing island of Spinalonga, a former leper colony until as recently as the 1950’s, home to a Venetian fortress, and now an open-air museum.

No visit to Crete is complete without a trip into Agios Nikolaos, a harbour town that uniquely houses a lake in its centre, is home to the archaeological museum of Minoan treasures, and is full of tavernas, shops, bars and restaurants in which to sit and watch the local life go by. End your day dancing the night away in the holiday hot spot of Malia, a twenty five minute drive from the villa!

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

There are loads of things to do and places to see for your kids of all ages when you stay at Villa Kokkini. Let’s start with your own private pool, where there’s no set hours, so they can splash and swim all day. In the immediate vicinity there’s three family-friendly beaches just over a kilometre away, and many others along the whole of the Cretan coastline.

The Aegean Sea is a safe place to enjoy snorkelling and underwater fish spotting, whilst for older children there’s lots of centres to learn to scuba dive. All aboard a boat for a fun day out at sea is a great way for the family to spend time together, discover hidden coves, enjoy locally cooked food, stop off for a swim, and relax and sunbathe on deck. Just over a kilometre south of Villa Konniki is the Watercity Waterpark, an aquatic park set in 87 000 square metres, with thirty six water games, lots of swimming pools, and slippy slides to keep your kids amused all day.

Whilst the adults can enjoy a day in their own dedicated area. Children love a day out in nearby Heraklion, ignite their interest in history with a visit to the Palace of Knossos and the Archaeological Museum, walk along the harbour walls, and enjoy a meal of local mezes in a family friendly local taverna. Your kids will love the CRETaquarium, located in the town of Gournes, four kilometres from the villa, which is home to two and a half thousand aquatic species housed in sixty fish tanks. After the aquarium take a short drive to Dinosauria Park, where you will find animatronic dinosaur models and fossil replicas. If theme parks are their thing Labyrinth Park is ten kilometres away, let them get lost in a Greek mythology maze, practice their putting at the mini golf, learn to ride horseback, or shoot some arrows with a bit of archery, something to keep kids of all age groups amused. Go cross country in off road Land Rover and open top Jeep Safaris, see the Cretan countryside in a thrilling ride.

Travel further afield for days out by car or organised trips to Agios Nikolaos, statue spot around the town’s central lake, climb the stairs and take in the culture of contemporary art, or learn about Minoan history in the Archaeological Museum. If nature is their thing, hike the island to see the local flora and fauna, find the cave that Zeus was born in, follow the stream trail to hidden waterfalls, and visit the open air Sitia Geopark and discover Crete’s diverse eco system. A visit to Crete isn’t complete without a trip to Spinalonga, now an open-air museum, reached by a short boat trip from Elounda, the home of a former leper colony and a ruined Venetian fortress, and now the setting for many a film, it makes for a fascinating day out for children and adults alike.
