Seaview Land for sale near Fres Apokoronas Location Information:

Apokoronas is a region of north-west Crete, in Chania Prefecture, to the east of Chania itself. The Apokoronas extends from the foothills of the White Mountains north to the coast, in a wide plain with rolling hills. To the east, Cape Drapanon rises above the plain and extends out into the Sea of Crete. The area is very green and fertile, unusual for rocky Crete.

The Kiliaris River, known in antiquity as ‘Pyknos’, runs through the region. Robert Pashley suggested that the name ‘Apokoronas’ came from the ancient city of Ippokoronas or Ippokoronion, also cited by Strabo. This city may have been located near modern Nippos, or on the site of the Venetian fortress, Castel Apicorono, on an outcrop between Kalives and Almirida.

The major towns of Apokoronas are Vamos, Armeni and Vrisses, with police, municipal and utility offices as well as taverns and large churches; Kalives, Almirida and Georgioupolis are the largest beach resorts. Tourism and agriculture are the major local industries, with much construction and quarrying to satisfy the demands of many foreigners eager to buy or rent properties in what used to be beautiful and traditional villages. Apokoronas was also the location of much of the filming of the movie “Zorba, the Greek.”

The previous municipality of Fres is found in mountainous Apokoronas in a distance of 30km from the city of Chania and included the municipal apartments of Fres, Paidochorio, Melidonio, Pemonion and Tzitzifes. Main activities of the area are agriculture and cattle-breeding. Main characteristic of the municipality Fres is its green plains and its crystal clear water.

It is worth to visit Paidochori and Nerochori, two villages that combine natural beauty with traditional style. In Tzitzifes you can see the spring as well as the refreshment stand surrounded by pines and sycamores. In Pemonia you can freshen up in the Korita spring. Particularly beautiful is the river in the municipality of Fres which combined with the abundant vegetation and the refreshment stand located there, can offer moments of relaxation and pleasure.

In the area Loutro is located the church of the Two Rocks while in the area Koukos the church of Evaggelistria towers above. The Byzantine church of Agion Panton in Fres and the church of Agios Georgios with its old murals are equally interesting. In Melidoni you can visit the monument of leader Manousakas. Remarkable is the effort of the “New Citizens of Mountainous Apokoronas”, who operate the weaving workshop “O Gaitanis”.
