Villa Kapare stands on the edge of the hillside at the end of the traditional Cretan village of Kokkino Chorio, where the famous movie “Zorba the Greek” was filmed , on a quiet, enviable position, 40 meters only from a little square in the heart of the village. It was the main Cafenion (traditional coffee bar) of the village and without doubt its most captivating feature is the huge vine covered terrace on the seaward side with absolutely mesmerizing, panoramic view of the coastline below. There, in a bygone age, the old men of the village, sat looking out the Souda Bay, wondering when the next pirate ship might appear over the horizon! Villa Kapare is ideal for those who wish to have peaceful vacation, with everyday swimming in the sea at the nearby beaches and to experience the hospitality of the Cretan people and the local traditions, with the added advantage of enjoying breathtaking panoramic views of Souda Bay and White Mountains. The villa is within walking distance of a mini market, with everything you may need, and a tavern serving excellent Greek food at convenient prices. A small beach with clear blue water called “Koytalas” is 2 minutes away by car and the main sandy beach of Almyrida is only 5 minutes away. At Almyrida village there are also a variety of traditional tavernas, café bars and shops and some water sport facilities are offered, such as windsurfing, snorkelling and canoe. The Villa was names ‘’Kapare’’ by the area where it stands, which was named Kapare because of the caper bushes (Capparis spinosa) that were growing thoroughly there in the past. As you enter in Villa Kapare, high double gates open onto a vine covered veranda and from here an entrance door leads to an airy ground floor living area, with stone floor, burning stove, and decorated touches of a cretan traditional village style. To one side a large breakfast counter with pine shelving separates the fully equipped kitchen (see amenities list). Against one wall is the large dining table and chairs and opposite here doubles doors lead out to the huge main veranda covered by a vine arbour with panoramic view. Here a large patio table and chairs can offer a marvelous breakfast staring at the blue sea or a romantic dinner watching the captivating sunset. On the other side of the living room there is a sitting area with a fitted sofa, plus chairs and a coffee table grouped around the warm fireplace. Beyond here seven stone-steps lead up to a small hallway with doors off, to a full bathroom with washing machine, plus an airy and spacious double bedroom with a window offering wonderful sea view. Off the hallway to the rear is a further bedroom with a double bed and window overlooking the entrance courtyard below. This bedroom also has two single beds (one bed can easily turn to a sofa) into a sleeping gallery above and accessed by a small pine staircase. The sleeping gallery has its own little windows looking out over the rooftop towards the sea. Both bedrooms have adequate wardrobe space. The property benefits from extensive gardens, olive trees, vines and fruit trees, which the guests are free to taste. The lovely courtyard area provides the perfect spot for relaxation and cooling under the fresh shade of the vine arbour, or for a very peaceful sunbath under the vital sun of Crete.
