The villa is about a mile from Prines and a mile and a half from Atsipopoulo where there is a good supermarket, a bakery and a few tavernas. 5 minutes in the car or 20 minutes on foot. Rehymnon and the beach 15 minutes by car. The villa itself has a good size pool and is very well appointed inside. The owners, the Sofoulakis family, are most welcoming and do everything they can to make for an enjoyable stay. Highly recommended.

It's an extremely well set out villa with 4 double bedrooms, two bathrooms, dining/lounge area & cosy kitchen and convivially coped very well with 7 busy adults. The outside space with verandah, own swimming pool, barbecue area etc., is fantastic, and also quiet, being screened from the road and other (not too nearby) villas by beautiful long established olive trees. It's a really, really lovely place to stay, within easy walk of local village, cafes, shops etc., - we will certainly return soon!
