For sale land apokoronas chania. The land is situated in a peaceful, rural location on the fringe of the traditional village of Kefalas. It has an area of approx. 2.000 sqm ready to be developed, providing excellent potential for an individual one or two storey rural home/Villa up to 200 sqm with scope for a swimming pool and a sizable garden.
A lovely land in a quiet rural location overlooking the impressive ‘White Mountains’ and Souda bay.

The land morphology is flat offering spectacular panoramic and unobstructed views over the surrounding verdant countryside, towards Lefka Ori and the Souda Bay. The plot size and the land morphology allow keeping property’s privacy.

The land is approached via a country lane 400m away from the main tarmacadam road linking the village of Kefalas with the seaside village of Almirida.

The traditional village of Kefalas, 400 m away, is one of the most picturesque villages of the region. It accommodates few tavernas, a mini-market, cafes, and a pretty but small accessible beach cove taverna 3,5 km away. The area provides a very good climate most beneficial for health for living all the year around There is also a daily bus service to Chania town

Nearby (5 min), lies the village of Vamos, which is the ‘capital’ of the region and hosts a Bank, Post Office, some shops, cafes, more tavernas and even a recently developed Health Centre [offering 24 hour Medical Facilities].

The seaside village of Almerida (10 min), Kalives, (15 min) and Georgioupoulis (15 min) provide a selection of sandy beaches, shops and traditional ”taverns”.

The traditional village of Gavalochori [10 min] offers a museum, “kafeneions” and “tavernas”, a bakery and village shops, all clustered around its main square.

The National Road [15 min] linking most major towns on the North Coast of the Island offers easy access to the two Ancient Venetian Towns/ Ports of Chania [40 min] and Rethymno [35 min]. Both are connected by ferryboat to the mainland Greece via Piraeus and to other summer islands resorts (Santorini, Naxos, etc).

Chania’s new International Airport can be reached in just less than 40 minutes.


The village of Kefalas is situated in the Apokoronas area, on the north side of Crete, west of Georgioupolis and east of Chania.

The district is shaped like a "triangle" and set away from the highway.

It's a green and quiet part compared to for instance

The Akrotiri (which is the peninsula next to Chania), with less houses and a more traditional lifestyle.

In the Apokoronas there are lots of olive groves, woodlands and farms, and a couple of great beaches like Almiryda, Kalives and the long stretched beach of Georgioupolis which is about 10 kilometer long.

Kefalas is an old village in the heart of the Apokoronas.

It is over 800 years old and thought to have been founded around 1175 A.D. during the Greek Byzantine times under Emperor Michalis Komnenos.

Inside it's boundaries there are a large amount of historic buildings from Venetian and other times, some beautifully restored, others in ruins.

From 1669 until 1898 Kefalas was under Ottoman Turkish occupation.

It's a large village, but it is quiet. There are squares, beautiful old trees, an old stone windmill, a couple of tavernas (one with Illy coffee!) and two supermarkets.

The supermarkets are small, but with all the essentials - one of them sells bio-organic food and vegetables and the other is run by an English lady - we think - that gave us free lighters and a large bottle of local wine so we could "taste it" after we did our shopping.

The people in Kefalas are really friendly and say hello and wave as you walk through the streets.

The whole village is pretty with old stone buildings and just a few tastefully done new ones.

Supposedly there are some 30 churches in the village, most of which are from the time of the Turkish occupation, when land would not be confiscated by the Turkish rulers if there was a church on its grounds.

I didn't count the ones that I have seen, and I haven't seen all of them, but it is definitely the village in Crete with the largest amount of churches that I have encountered.
