Villa Anastasia is one hour by car from Heraklion, only 7 minutes from Rethymnon and approximately 7 minutes from the sea front. The traditional village of Prines is set on the lush green hill overhanging Rethymnon. Prines used to be an important place during the Venetian occupation and the church of St. Nicolas dates from the 13th century. All necessary shops can be found in the village, such as 2 supermarkets, a traditional cafe and a taverna. The village itself is surrounded by olive trees and is ideal for people who like less crowded places and want to be close to a very rich nature.
Rethymnon is very close, offering many and diverse activities and excursions. Where to begin is a difficult decision to make: the picturesque villages, the areas of natural beauty, the caves, the beaches, the high mountains, the historical monuments? The Cretans will become your friends. They will offer you a glass of 'raki' and invite you to their home.
