What makes this villa unique

 In our opinion Villa Caneva’s unique qualities are:

- Spacious fenced outdoor areas surrounded by trees and nature.

- Serenity with fabulous views.

- Great location, a feeling of privacy without actually being too far from anything. Only 300 m from the village of Prines with its cafe, taverns and a mini market, 5 minutes away from Atsipopoulo an even larger village with numerous amenities and 10 minutes from Rethymno and the beach!

- Bus to Rethymno is available.

- Full privacy in all outdoor areas as the villa is located on a hill.

- Ideal for families with children because of the outdoor layout.  Children will have plenty of fenced space to play without being near to the pool.

- It's stone construction means that the house is always cool maintaining the same temperature.

- The hospitality of the owner who will be on hand if need be ready to help or give you advice!

A really great villa

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Caneva it is a lovely villa beautifully maintained and very clean. The owner was extremely helpful and ensured we had everything we needed. The children loved the pool and garden and my wife and I loved the balcony in the evening overlooking the sea with beautiful colours in the sky as the sun went down. It was a short walk to the village where there was a couple of mini markets and a very hospitable taverna with good food. Getting to the beach was easy in the car, what more do you need!

I would highly recommend the villa as a choice for a relaxing holiday.

Villa Caneva : a wonderful place for your holidays

  • 5 of 5

The villa is really a very nice place to live in. Situated in a quiet city (Prines), not far from the beaches and cooler than Rethymnon. The evenings are unforgattable : since 18 or 19 h the temperature decreases and it's fantastic. Everything you need is provided : congratulations to Elene et Nikos.

Fantastic! A lovingly restored and very beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

From the beautiful exposed stone to the intricate details, this villa is absolutely gorgeous. We stayed here for two weeks in July 2014, and loved every minute! Elena and Nikos - the owners - were very hospitable and helped us out no end, from their fresh eggs to their homemade treats they went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. Their colleague Kostas was also very helpful and helped us to locate the villa very easily on arrival with clear instructions.

The villa is close to the beach and the town of Rethymnon and is well situated for exploring both the south and north coast of the island. There are also plenty of places to eat locally, with two taverns in Prines and great restaurants in the neighbouring villages.

The villa itself boasts speedy wi-fi, a gorgeous pool and great bbq area. There's plenty of space for everyone to enjoy the peaceful tranquility this villa has to offer - believe it our not, the villa is even more gorgeous in person than in the pictures. The building is beautifully restored and very pretty indeed. Out of all the places we've been lucky enough to visit, this was by far the most beautiful. The villa is spotless and has a great layout, providing space and intimacy for all guests. We visited with two teenagers, so this worked out really well for us.

We wouldn't hesitate to visit the villa again and would highly recommend it to all types of groups and parties, especially families with children of all ages! A car is worth investing in and provides a great opportunity to really explore the local area and discover the beautiful beaches of the south cost and the buzzing towns of the north coast.

A huge thank you to Nikos and Elena for a very enjoyable holiday, a gorgeous meal and all the treats you were kind enough to give us. We wish you every success in your new venture and hope it brings as much joy to others as it did to us!

Villa Caneva is situated outside the historic town of Rethymno, in the traditional village of Prines.

The village itself is beautiful, flourishing with flora and olive groves. A perfect option for those who appreciate nature and are looking for peace.  

Being a small countryside village, Prines has only a few small shops however, your basic requirements will be met by the local mini-market, the traditional cafes and the excellent tavern almost 300 m away from our villa.

Staying in Prines village will give you the advantage of both countryside life and being less than 10 min away from Rethymno town by car.

The nearest beach is Koubes beach which is approximately 5 km away at the entrance of Rethymno town. This bustling town with its long sandy beach and its numerous amenities is only a 10 minutes drive (7km). An alternative option is the quieter sandy beach of Episkopi village approximately 10 km away on the road to Chania.

Due to the location of the villa, you also have the advantage of easily visiting the South coast where you can find some of Crete’s truly amazing natural beaches such as “Schinaria”, “Damnoni”, “Triopetra”, “Agios Pavlos” and 'Preveli'. The distance to the South coast is about 45 minutes from the villa by car.  

PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different 'location category' on HomeAway affiliate websites, depending on their categorised locations (each affiliate website has its own 'location categories').
