Villa Despina in brief

Villa Despina is a two-floor villa with swimming pool located in the outskirts of the city of Rethymnon, just 8 Km away, on the village of Prines.

The ground floor has two bedrooms (one double and one with two single beds) and a bathroom with bathtub. There is also a living room (the two sofas can be converted to sofa beds) and a fully equipped kitchen. On the first floor there is another double bedroom with en suite bathroom (with shower) giving access to a big veranda with views towards the sea and the surrounding mountains and hills.

At the ground level there is a 40 sq. m. swimming pool with sun beds; there is a barbeque at the garden area. The house has air conditioning and heating. It also comes fully equipped with Wi-Fi and satellite TV. The kitchen is fully equipped; there is a stove, a microwave oven, a fridge, a washing machine, a dish washer all necessary kitchen utensils and of course hot running water.

There is also parking available for the duration of your stay. 

Prines is an ideal location for those wishing to explore the island because as we say: ‘it is close to everywhere’. Rethymnon is 8 Km. away where you can reach the port and the city center. Heraklion is just an hour; Chania is a mere 50 minutes and Sitia is around 2 hours away. You can access numerous beaches in 10 to 20 minutes by car.

The village of Prines is beautifully organized with everything you may need for your stay; you will find grocery stores, taverns and everything else just 500 meters away from your quiet neighborhood. The house is ideal for you whether you are a group of people, a large family or a smaller family, even a couple. And we arrange it to be an exact fit to your stay, no matter if this means extra “chez long” resting chairs around the pool, or a baby cot, or whatever is necessary.
