There are pretty flowers and a few trees which tie in perfectly with the character of the villa. On one side of the yard there is a large traditional stone-built water tank, which back in time, was used for the water supplies of the household. Just in front of the ground floor, you can have your first stop. You can enjoy the magnificent sea view as well as the breathtaking view of Drapanokefala hill. The yard is also equipped with a barbecue for unforgettable nights. The yard also has parking space for three vehicles.

As you walk in the ground floor you find yourself in a modern hallway and the stairs that lead to the first floor. At the end of the corridor two sun-kissed large bedrooms can be found, both beautifully decorated with big, spacious wardrobes. One bedroom has a double bed and other a small TV set and the bedroom has a double bed, and a single one upon request. Both bedrooms have a wonderful view of the sea.

Η βίλα ¨Χαρουπιά¨ είναι μια αυτόνομη διώροφη κατοικία με μεγάλη αυλή στην είσοδο του χωριού. Πρόκειται για μια ανακαινισμένη παλιά κατοικία της οποίας το ισόγειο έχει κτιστεί περίπου το 1936. Μπαίνοντας στην αυλή συναντά κανείς μια μεγάλη χαρουπιά που χρονολογείται περίπου στα εβδομήντα έτη. Τριγύρω υπάρχουν όμορφα λουλούδια και δένδρα εναρμονισμένα με την ιδιαιτερότητα του χώρου. Στην άκρη της αυλής δεσπόζει μια μεγάλη παραδοσιακή πετρόκτιστη στέρνα, όπου τα παλαιά χρόνια χρησιμοποιούταν για την ύδρευση του σπιτιού. Μπροστά στο ισόγειο κτίσμα μπορείτε να κάνετε μια πρώτη στάση στην αυλή, από όπου μπορείτε να απολαύσετε την υπέροχη θέα της θάλασσας αλλά και την επιβλητική θέα του λόφου Δραπανοκεφάλα. Ο χώρος διαθέτει και ψησταριά για αξέχαστες βραδιές barbeque, ενώ στην αυλή παρέχονται τρεις θέσεις στάθμευσης .

Στο σαλόνι θα μπορέσετε να χαλαρώσετε στον καναπέ και στις αναπαυτικές πολυθρόνες και να αγναντέψετε τον υπέροχο κόλπο της Σούδας με το τηλεσκόπιο του σπιτιού. Τις κρύες νύχτες του χειμώνα θα σας κρατήσει συντροφιά το τζάκι που βρίσκεται δίπλα στο παράθυρο, ενώ μπορείτε να ζεσταθείτε και με το μεγάλο κλιματιστικό. Στο χώρο του σαλονιού θα βρείτε μια σύγχρονη κρεμαστή τηλεόραση που διαθέτει δορυφορική σύνδεση καθώς και μια χαλαρωτική αιώρα. Το μπαλκόνι του σπιτιού θα το λατρέψετε: ένα μεγάλο ξύλινο τραπέζι με έξι καρέκλες θα αποτελέσει το ιδανικό σημείο χαλάρωσης, καθώς θα αγναντεύετε τα γαλάζια νερά της θάλασσας, τα πλοία που πηγαινοέρχονται και το μαγευτικό ηλιοβασίλεμα.

We holidayed at Villa Charoupia in Kokkino Chorio for two weeks from 17th August 2016. The house was charming with exceptional views across Souda Bay from the first floor lounge/kitchen verandah (the bedrooms and bathroom were on the ground floor and an additional wc on the first floor). The bedrooms and the lounge were efficiently air conditioned. The house was spotlessly clean and well equipped and the owner, Katerina, had put a lot of thought into making the house feel like a home from home. The house was cleaned twice a week and bed linen changed weekly, this was done by Katerina herself. Kokkino Chorio is about 45mins drive from the airport; it has a kafenion, a taverna and a very comprehensively stocked village store. There are two good tourist beaches with a number of shops and tavernas less than 15mins drive away at Almyrida and Kalyves. However we preferred one on the outskirts of Kalyves, Kiani Akti which was much quieter. The house is well located for the airport and for visiting Chania and Rethymno (45 and 60 mins respectively). Katerina was a great host; welcoming and friendly; easily contactable and very knowledgeable about the area. We had a fabulous holiday and would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Charoupia as an excellent base for a relaxing holiday.

The house was very comfortable and felt like home. The village Kokkino Chorio is small and very peaceful. View from balcony was fabulous. The nearest beach is a few km away -  small, uncrowded and stony. If you prefer sand, than choose beach just after Kalyves (9 km) town. The house is equiped with everything that you will need - from washing machine to vacuum cleaner (useful if you pack you clothes in bags with exhausting air option), from telescope to basic fishing equipement :) we even saw a sea turte while fishing on the near by cliffs :) There was even bathroom accesories (shampoo and etc.), also kitchen accesories (coffee, tea, sugar and etc.), breafast for tomorrow, fruits, raki and so on. The owners are especially hospitable, caring and helpful. Thank you! We felt great in this house. Certainly recommended!

This is an amazing house very comfortable for the family of 4. Much better than seen on pictures. Fully equipped with kitchen staff, AC, 2 bathrooms, great balcony with a great sea view. Housekeepers are super friendly and helpful - we got very warm welcome and great care during our stay. The village is very nice and calm, no crowds or noisy bars. You can walk to a tavern or a supermarket in just 3 minutes. Need to have a car to reach beaches. I would recommend a small beach 3 minutes driving to the right of the place. Thank you very much!

We spent 4 weeks in June 2016 in this beautiful house. It was one of the best vacations of our lives. We were the first guests of the house, and were afraid a little to rent a house without a single comment. The house itself, the village of Kokkino Chorio and the owners of the house exceeded all our expectations.The house is located in an authentic Cretan village of Kokkino Chorio on the Hill. The terrace of the house offers a magical view of Souda Bay. We spent a lot of wonderful evenings, admiring the sun set into the sea. It was impossible to get used to view from the terrace even after living there for a month. Usually we cooked by ourselves. The house has everything that can be useful for longer stays and more: all appliances, kitchen utensils, household cleaning, bed linen and towels, which were changed by caring hostess Katherine. There is everything for a comfortable stay: from the needles and thread, and ending with a telescope, which can be used to see passing ships during the day, and the craters on the near side of the moon at night.Photos on the website do not really show the comfort of the house, and this is that rare case when reality is better.The closest to the house beach is in 2.3 km. There was almost no person there, it is a narrow bay among the rocks with a narrow road to, and there is no infrastructure (chairs, umbrellas, etc.) The nearest well-maintained beach is in the neighboring towns of Almirida (~ 4 km) and our favorite beach in the city Kalyves (~ 7 km). There is everything necessary for a long rest during the day on these beaches. Free sun beds, umbrellas and shower near the seaside tavernas.In the village Kokkino Chorio there is a taverna and a shop. You definitely need to rent a car for a rest and exploring the numerous attractions of Crete. There is enough space to park 2 or 3 cars on plot. The owners of the house impressed us with their warmth and hospitality. We came with 2 month old baby, and Katherine had prepared everything necessary: a cot, cradle, and even lifesaving drugs. One evening, coming back from the beach, we saw freshly baked cupcake on the kitchen table with a note and wishes bon appetit. The owners facilitated our first few days in Greece, hints and tips. Thanks to them we knew location of the nearest shop with freshly caught fish and often used it. It was a really pleasant communication and familiarity. We returned to Russia with fond memories.
