Accommodation and holidays in Apokoronas villas, Chania, Crete – The uniqueness of Apokoronas
Apokoronas is a magnificent, unique place, as increasingly many visitors that spend their holidays in Crete get to know every year. It is located on the northeast part of the prefecture of Chania.
The area of Apokoronas starts at the foothills of the imposing White Mountains of Crete (called “Lefka Ori” in Greek), but most of it consists of an elevated plain that is very fertile and produces excellent agricultural products, which are known all over Crete.
In the whole region there are numerous hills, which make the Apokoronas landscape truly magnificent, and at the same time provide great view. In one of those hills lie Douliana Villas, which offer possibly the best, most authentic villa accommodation in the Apokoronas area.
The northeast part of Apokoronas consists of a scenic, rocky peninsula that overlooks the Cretan sea, and which includes three of the most known resorts in Chania and Crete: Almyrida and Kalyves on the north part of the peninsula, and Georgioupolis on its south.
There are also villa accommodations on offer in the northern part of Apokoronas, close to the beach, but most people prefer to stay in villas in the main body of Apokoronas during their holidays, in order to live the authentic Apokoronas experience.
