Sightseeing holidays among traditional villages, Apokoronas, Chania

One of the most picturesque areas of Crete island

Traditional village, Apokoronas, Chania, Crete

The Apokoronas extends from the foothills of the White Mountains north to the coast, in a wide plain with rolling hills.  The area is very green and fertile, unusual for rocky Crete. The Kiliaris river, known in antiquity as 'Pyknos', runs through the region.

Tourism and agriculture are the major local industries, with much construction and quarrying to satisfy the demands of many foreigners eager to buy or rent properties in what used to be beautiful and traditional villages.

Apokoronas was the location of much of the filming of the movie Zorba the Greek.
