Prines village 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.
Rethymno (or Rethymnon) is everything a Greek town should be and more. It’s one of the best preserved medieval towns in Greece and was once a bastion of the Venetians who left a mighty legacy – the large Fortezza (fortress) which guards Rethymno from the top of an imposing headland. The town was also ruled by Turks for a time so you’ll find a scattering of Ottoman domes and minarets peeping from behind 16th century buildings. Now, a popular destination for tourists, it hosts many hotels and villas.
Villa Despina comes with a swimming pool. The pool has a security fence for infants (can be installed upon request prior to arrival).
