It is a coastal village of 1,100 inhabitants on the old road to Patras. Built on the Vocha plain, at an altitude of 20m, is only 14km from the city of Corinth. As to its name three versions are plausible; either it was named after the last name of an important local ruler of the byzantine era, or after a step daughter of Ibrahim Pascha or its name is due to the stones (kokkones, plural) that the streams Chekazi and Boulaka brought with.
The imposing church of Agios Vasileios boasts in the center of the village and in just 15km there is the archeological site of Ancient Corinth. Due to the large number of secondary houses, the population increases dramatically during summer.
