ISTRON – KALO CHORIO
Istron – Kalo Chorio is a traditional village on Crete’s northeast coast. Istron is the bit by the sea, and Kalo Chorio the part that sits on the hillside above. This “sort of place” dishes up beautiful beaches and panoramic views over the Gulf of Mirabello.
Upon an enchanting hill in Istron – Kalo Chorio is created a complex of 12 apartments and studios, 300 metres from the beach, approximately 900 metres from Istron and some 11 km away from Agios Nikolaos. In the garden of the dwelling there is a well equipped ( with sun bed and sun umbrellas ) swimming pool , with a shallow end for children . It is set in large lawns on a separate raised terrace reached by a short flight of stone steps.
Each apartment and studio is furnished in a typical, simple, charming Cretan style. The “sofrades”( small round wooden tables ) and the flagstone floors with fixed beds are some of the characteristics.
All apartments are recently renovated and equipped with swimming pool (for all apartments), parking (for all apartments), washer and dryer (in a special area for all apartments), with air condition units, fully equipped kitchnette(with a family fridge), bathroom with bath tub or shower cabin(and hair dryer), satellite plasma TV, safety deposit boxes, free Wi – Fi.
Each apartment has a private balcony with a wonderful view over the bay (which has a pergola and an etesian/meltemi wind precaution/protection system which is activated whenever there is a meltemi wind).
Kounenos Apartments is an ideal spot to relax, unwind and enjoy the Cretan sun. They are located approximately 80 km (1 hour) from the “Nikos Kazantzakis” International Airport of Heraklion and about 50 km (1 hour) from the “Vitsentzos Kornaros” Municipal Airport of Sitia, while the city of Agios Nikolaos is located only 10 km (approximately 10 minutes) from the Apartments. Alternatively, visitors can access the Apartments by sea, from Piraeus to Heraklion (Kounenos Apartments are located approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes from the port of Heraklion).

"Fell in love with this place from day one and decided to stay 3 weeks. Yanni our host treated us like family. Beautiful sparkling pool and private gardens, rooms serviced every 3 days, very quiet and the most spectacular views! Located very high on hill above beach but definitely worth the walk if you go to Voulismo beach about 200 steps down from the roadside. Rated one of the best beaches in a Crete with crystal clear water. Short walk down to the village for bakery and good Taverna's. Look for live music and dancing for a fun night out."
