This charming traditional village is set at the foothills of the dramatic White Mountains, overlooking the Bay of Souda and 10km East of Chania. The village of Aptera has three tavernas and a kafeneion (1912!) and, by taking the back roads, you can easily reach the surrounding villages of Stilos, Provarma, Neo Horio and Armeni by car.

Peaceful and quiet, with the exception of local weddings, baptisms and name day celebrations, the village provides easy access (2km) to the National Highway and is a perfect base for exploring the area of Apokoronas and the wider area of western Crete.

The ancient Greco-Roman city of Aptera is nearby,and is a large fascinating archaeological siteopen to the public. The site is particularly beautiful in spring time, when carpets of bright wild flowers cover the area. Close to this site is a fabulous Venetian castle, which offers some of the best views over the Bay of Souda. The area is ideal for walking, cycling and particularly suitable for those with an interest in the spring and autumn flowers.

The nearest beach is approximately 4 km, at Kalami.
