About The Experience
Rent a Greek villa on the outskirts of Prines, a tiny village on the northern side of Crete. At this Greece villa rental you'll be able to enjoy an authentic vacation, either in the privacy of your own Greek holiday villa with garden and swimming pool, or venturing out to explore the Greek countryside. A variety of beaches are only a short drive away from this private Greece villa, and you'll love trying out the food at local tavernas. If you feel the need for something more exciting than a lazy day on the beach, larger towns are nearby.
Location Description
This two-story traditional stone villa sits on the outskirts of Prines, a small village with a mini-market, a kafenion (cafe), and a couple of tavernas. In the neighboring village of Atsipopoulo, only 500 m away, you will find a bakery, three supermarkets, an internet cafe, and several tavernas with Greek food at local prices. You’ll also want to go into the city of Rethymnon, 7 km away, for shopping and to visit the sixteenth century Venetian Fortezza, the location of the annual Rethymnon Renaissance Festival. If you’re interested in the history of the island you may also want to step into the Historical and Folk Art Museum for a look at traditional Cretan ceramics, textiles, artifacts, jewelry, and clothing from across the centuries.
The local property representative will meet you at your arrival point in Crete and guide you to the villa. At that point (or, if your arrival time is late, the following day), the representative will answer any questions and introduce you to the spectacular island of Crete. A representative will also remain available on a 24-hour help line for any further assistance you might need.

    Customer Reviews

    Overall:
    Overall, we had an incredible time. We enjoyed the privacy and the neighborhood people very much.
    Enjoyed Most:
    Private pool.
    Enjoyed Least:
    The beds were firm.
    Surrounding Area:
    Even though there was plenty of new construction going on, the "Old World" flavor and attention to detail was still kept, so it didn't look odd beside the older buildings.
    Nearby Events or Locales:
    Prines. Yes, it was.
    Tips or Restaurants:
    Both restaurants in Prines are very good, with very friendly owners who wait on you personally, but don't be in a hurry to leave because it takes a while to get your check.
    Directions:
    The owner of the property will meet you at an easy-to-find grocery store and lead you to the property and answer any questions you may have.
    Check In Out:
    Very easy.

    Troy, July

    Enjoyed Most:
    The unit was very attractive - inside and out.
    Enjoyed Least:
    We had trouble contacting the local property manager while we were there. Barking dogs bothered the couple we were traveling with. My wife and I were in the ground floor bedroom and did not hear the dogs..
    Surrounding Area:
    Greece was very attractive to us. The historic sights were fantastic. Knossis was a real treat. We had a rental car and made daily tours Chania, Iraklion, Knossis. Very nice.
    Nearby Events or Locales:
    The town was within walking distance.
    Tips or Restaurants:
    All the Tavernas were good
