What makes this Villa unique
What makes villa Princess so special: - The location, the villa is located just 3 km away from Rethymno city centre with all kinds of shops and entertainment and the long sandy beach which is ideal for families. - Outstanding panoramic view, being located in an area overlooking the Cretan sea provides unique and stunning views of the sea and Rethymno town from the villa both indoors and outdoors. - Quiet area with no noise from cars or neighbouring houses. Also even the national road looks to be close on the map, we can guarantee that you will not hear noises in the villa area (the villa is actually not close to the national road than it seems and also the national road is located behind a mountain that is also higher altitude than the villa’s altitude). - It is a good value for money considering the excellent location and the facilities that the villa offers. - The hospitality of the owner, he will be on hand with helpful advice and information whenever it is needed. The owners have a wide knowledge of the island and will be only to willing to suggest places of interest and routes to get there.

Schöne Herbsttage in wundervoller Villa
Wir hatten zu viert schöne Herbsttage in der wundervollen Villa mit einem wirklich grandiosem Ausblick hoch über Rethymno. Unser erwachsener Sohn hatte zu seiner großen Begeisterung seinen eigenen Bereich mit getrenntem Eingang und Badezimmer sowie Terrasse. Die uns entgegengebrachte herzliche Gastfreundschaft von Giorgos und seiner Mutter war außergewöhnlich. Alle 3 Tage wurde die Villa gesäubert und kunstvollste Gebilde aus Handtüchern geformt. Maria ist eine Künstlerin! Die Küche ist vollständig ausgestattet. Uns hat jedoch ein Gang in eine der vielen umliegenden Tavernen sehr viel Spaß gemacht. Wir haben uns in unsere Ferienkatzen und den süßen Hund Spithos verliebt. Die Villa ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt, um mit dem Mietwagen 14 Tage Zentralkreta zu erkunden.
Week Long Stay April 2017
We spent one week in this Villa overlooking the town of Rethymno as two small families of 4 adults and 4 young children in total. The size of the property was ideal for this amount of guests or alternatively 6 adults would fit comfortably.
Without a doubt the selling point to the this villa is the view, there is an amazing panaramic view of the Cretan Mountains to the West, the Northern Coastline of Crete and an overlooking view of the lovely city of Rethymno and its Fortezza. I can't imagine there is a better view in any villa throughout Crete.
Another positive of the Villa is the outside space. The barbecue is ideal for cooking and there is plenty of outside seating for dining. The swimming pool is a decent size and access is restricted to children, it is however not heated so a little chilly in April! This would be ideal in the middle of a hot greek summer. The outside space is perfect for young children to play in safety and with lots of childrens toys available.
The villa itself is homely and has been well looked after in spite of its age. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, which is well suited for the number of guests the villa caters for. There is lots of traditional decor and is cleaned twice a week to a very good standard.
The local area is a great place to spend a holiday and I would recommend a hire car for the duration as the Villa is a about 3km uphill from the town. A taxi is however only 5 euros if required.
The most memorable part of the booking has to be the hospitality of the host, Giorgios. On the first evening he met us at the Villa with local cheese, breads and Raki to make us feel welcome from the very beginning. This continued through the week as he brought local dishes for us to try and recommended a really good fish restaurant in Rethymno where he turned up with a birthday cake for one of our guests. A brilliant host, in a lovely villa on a beautiful island.
In summary we definitely left with a love for Crete and would recommend this Villa on the view and outside space alone.
Vi har avnjutet två härliga veckor i Villa Princess. Utsikten från huset är helt otrolig, solnedgången är spektakulär. Ägaren Georgoe tog emot oss när vi kom och var lyhörd till våra behov. Hans mamma lagade en otroligt god maträtt och en god kaka under vår vistelse. Huset blev ordentligt städat var tredje dag. Huset har en egen grind som gör att villan känns väldigt privat. Grillen är mycket bra och vi har grillat många av våra kvällar i huset. Bra med matplatser ute med skugga. Bra sovrum inne med många balkonger att välja på. Mycket bra wi-fi som fungerade bra både inne och ute. Poolen hade ett underbart läge och var lagom stor.
Hängmattorna var ett bra komplement till utemöblerna.
Vi hoppas att vi någon dag kan komma tillbaka till fantastiska Villa Princess.
Vi tackar också etouri för den fina gåva vi fick, en dag vid Baja beach.
Mvh Victoria Nyberg med familj och Våra vänner Mia, Janne och Måns
