VILLA WITH PRIVATE POOL GARDEN AND BBQ AT QUIET CRETAN VILLAGE JUST OUTSIDE CITY

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Rethymnon - House Zambia

Newly built, completely private, 2 bedrooms, 2 kitchens, 2 bathrooms, quiet

House Zambia has a private swimming pool and a garden at the back of the traditional, newly built villa, which also contains a large terrace with a fully equipped kitchen and a barbecue (BBQ) grill. The high Cretan trees, vegetation and bamboo fences, shield the pool and garden's view completely from the neighbouring houses, providing complete privacy and beautiful green surroundings. Located in the quiet, traditional village of Prines in Rethymnon, Crete, House Zambia can accommodate 5+ people in its 2 spacious air-conditioned bedrooms, its fully equipped indoor kitchen and dining room and its comfortable living room with satellite TV.

Relax inside or besides the pool, read a book under the shadow of the big oak tree in the garden, or organize a barbecue (BBQ) with your family and friends with fresh local meat from the village's excellent shops. House Zambia is ideal for a quiet, private getaway with your significant other, your friends or your family.

The Bedrooms: House Zambia follows the traditional Cretan Greek village style with stone walls and traditional furniture, tablecloths, and ornaments. The house seamlessly combines traditional with modern elements to balance comfort and Cretan tradition in order to provide a memorable and authentic experience to all its guests.

House Zambia's master bedroom contains a double bed and its secondary bedroom contains one double and one single bed. Both rooms are air-conditioned - which is something you definitely need during the famously hot Greek days and nights. Both bedrooms are located on the upper floor which also houses the indoors bathroom which apart from the toilet and the bathtub contains a family-sized washing machine.

You don't have to worry about cleaning. House Zambia is professionally cleaned biweekly and all the towels and linen are changed.

The Garden: The garden not only provides a great relaxing and serene background scenery, but it also provides a cool shadow shelter for those famously hot Greek afternoons. House Zambia's garden is full of Cretan flowers, plants and trees but its centrepiece is the large, glorious Oak tree at the edge of the garden, surrounded by a stone pedestal. Under the oak tree you can find a small coffee table, ideal for a relaxing chess or backgammon game amidst the guaranteed summer breeze of the garden.

Overseeing the swimming pool and the garden is House Zambia's large terrace. The terrace houses a fully equipped kitchen with a Fridge and freezer, an electric Cooker and a Barbecue grill. You can organize a BBQ with family and friends with local, fresh Cretan meat you can buy directly from one of the village's butcher shops. The terrace also has a large dining table and is protected from the bright Greek midday sun with a tent.

Coming to House Zambia: The village is very easy to find and access by car, but we can also meet you at the center of Rethymnon, in front of the town hall, or on the highway intersection of Rethymnon on the Heraklion-Chania national road.

The village of Prines is less than 5 minutes from the aforementioned intersection, which is called 'Komvos Atsipopoulou'. You can take the exit towards the 'Atsipopoulo' location, which is clearly marked and follow the main road. Shortly you will be greeted by the village's name sign and arrive at Prines.

House Zambia itself is less than 100 meters from the village's central square, on the traditional narrow path that's perpendicular to the main road.

AMAZING PLACE TO STAY AT!

  • 5 out of 5
House of Zambia was amazing! We enjoyed every minute of it. If you are looking to stay in a village away from the city (but still close enough, only about 10 minutes from Rethymno), then this is the right place! The house has everything you need and the pool and outdoor area is awesome!!Highly recommended! Tasoula and Giorgos (owners) are wonderful people and there if you have any questions.

Excellent, very clean and well maintained.

  • 5 out of 5
A great week with unbroken sunshine on all but one day, enabling us to spend a lot of time walking in the hills, often finishing on a beach. The owners were extremely helpful and provided a lovely meal on our arrival. The property had everything we needed and we would strongly recommend it to anyone, with the minor proviso that young children would need to be supervised in the pool (minimum depth 1 metre).

Fantastic Outdoor Spaces, Wonderful Small Town Setting

  • 5 out of 5
We are two travelling friends from California who thoroughly enjoyed the 5 nights we stayed at House Zambia. We loved the gardens, including eating the walnuts each morning that had fallen from the tree. The outdoor terrace was our favorite spot to have breakfast in the morning and happy hour in the evening.
The location was really ideal - very easy to get into Rethimnon, which is such a great town - big enough for good restaurants and shopping, but not horrible traffic. The drive to the south coast beaches was easy from here, even taking the backroads, which was part of the fun. The town of Prines itself is quiet and non-touristy, just what we were looking for.
All of the arrangements before the trip were very straightforward. Giannis is very responsive and everything went smoothly once we got there. WiFi works and was very convenient.
But the best part of the entire stay was meeting the owners. They could not have been nicer or more accommodating. And the cooking... what a treat. Thank you so much for taste of Creten home cooking.

Perfect base for exploring the Rethymnon region

  • 5 out of 5
The villa is located in a small village and is therefore very quiet and peaceful. However, the nightlife of Rethymnon is only 10 minutes away. From the villa you can reach in 30 minutes many beautiful beaches in the north, and in one hour the south coast with its spectacular nature.

The villa itself is very nice and comfortable. The bedrooms at the first floor are not very large, but the living area is spacious and between living room, terrace, garden and swimming pool we were very comfortable even during the hottest days. The second kitchen with the barbecue on the terrace is a big plus and we had dinner there every night.

The owners were exceptionally kind: they prepared an abundant dinner for the first day, filled the fridge with beverages and local food, and in general were very helpful and made us really feel at home.

Overall it was a very good value for the price and I would certainly recommend it to anyone visiting this part of Crete.

Located in the old settlement of Prines, Rethymnon, Crete, Greece. The area is very quiet and retains its traditional characteristics. The location makes House Zambia an ideal holiday retreat for those seeking relaxation but also for those that want to explore Crete with its outstanding beaches, enchanting gorges and caves, and its mysterious ancient ruins - remainders of the Minoan and Venetian civilizations.

The village of Prines is seven (7) minutes away from the centre of the town of Rethymnon (central Crete) and another seven (7) minutes away from the beautiful beach of Episkopi. All the other parts of Crete, Chania, Heraklion, and Agios Nikolaos are just a short drive away. Specifically, Chania is 40 minutes away, Heraklion 1 hour, and Agios Nikolaos 1 hour and 40 minutes. Although there is public transportation available to tour around Crete we highly recommend that you rent a car as this is the most convenient and quick way to explore Crete.
