Douliana, Apokoronas, Chania – Introduction


Douliana Village :

A traditional village, revealing the history of Crete!

Douliana is a traditionally preserved community situated on a hill overlooking Souda Bay. Around the village you can find natural surroundings of extreme beauty, including enormous cypresses and oaks. Douliana has been a popular place of residence and a prosperous community since the 18th century, and it has maintained its character more than any other community in the area. This is mainly due to the local population taking great care in preserving the historical monuments and traditional buildings of the community. As a result, the long history of both the Apokoronas region and the island of Crete are apparent and reflected throughout the settlement. This is also one of the main reasons – other than the weather and natural beauty, of course – for which numerous foreigners have chosen to live permanently in the village during the last decade.

Directions & Distances

Chania international airport: 25km
Souda port: 20 km
Chania city: 20 km
Almyrida beach: 5km
Kalyves beach: 4km
Vamos village: 3km
In Douliana you can find two traditional orthodox churches, which are both monuments of the 19th century, with remarkable Byzantine icons and beautiful architecture, the village’s coffee shop (“kafenio” in Greek) at the central square and a fine taverna with authentic delicious Cretan dishes, all prepared using fresh, local products. Although the village is atop of a hill, the nearest beach is just 2 km away. By car, you can reach the stunning beaches of Apokoronas in less than 10 minutes. The distance to Chania city is 20km, to the port of Souda also 20km, and to the airport 30km. You can reach all of the above in 20-30 minutes’ time.
Douliana villas and houses are located in the Apokoronas peninsula in Crete. Apokoronas is situated in between the White Mountains and Souda Bay and is the greenest region of Crete, combining amazing natural environment, breathtaking views of the Cretan Sea and magnificent sandy beaches.

Apokoronas peninsula is situated at the foot of the White Mountains (“Lefka Ori” in Greek) and is arguably the greenest region of Crete and – according to many visitors – the most picturesque, too. Apokoronas successfully combines breathtaking views of the Cretan Sea, a stunning natural environment and magnificent sandy beaches. What’s more, the peninsula is strategically located between the cities of Chania and Rethymnon, allowing easy access to both amazing destinations. Apokoronas features a surprisingly wide selection of traditional Cretan villages, every one of them with its own unique “personality”. Douliana village is all about class and architecture.

Vamos village offers a genuine back-to-nature experience. Kefalas village is the ideal “observation post” over the Cretan Sea. Kalives village is where the tranquil, crystal-clear sandy beaches of Apokoronas are, one after another.

Almirida and Plaka villages are two “twin” villages, although not much alike: Almirida is about laid back beach culture and Plaka is about impressing views of the sea – all of these in walking distance. Vrisses village can be described as a typical Cretan village, but with something not so typical of an island: the vast amounts of running water, which are the reason for the rich vegetation in the area – and also the reason why, in a hot summer day, Vrisses is an ideal hideaway.

And that’s not all: apart from the above well-known villages, there are more interesting villages in Apokoronas (Tsivaras, Gavalohori and Kokino Horio, to name a few), which are up to you to discover.
