Aptera, Chania Prefecture, Crete

About the neighbourhood
7 miles along the coast from Chania, the road winds gently up to Aptera (formerly Megala Chorafia) a Cretan village set in the foothills of the White Mountains. The village’s hilltop setting makes for breathtaking panoramic views, over Souda Bay to the North and of the White Mountains, rising over 7,000ft to the South. Megala Chorafia, which literally means “Big Fields”, is a scatter of houses and farms with an ornate orthodox church as its centrepiece.The “Metoche” area on the Eastern side, where your accommodation is located, is on a ridge which extends towards the ancient ruins of Aptera. Wild flowers bloom along the narrow roads on which shepherds move their flocks between fields. The archaeological remains of Aptera are nearby.
