Traditional Villa with pool and garden! Villa Manolia
average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews


  • 5 of 5

We rented the Villa Manolia at the beginning of September 2011 for 2 weeks. There were 9 of us, including a 2 1/2 year old. The villa had plenty of room so that if we wanted to we could go to another part of the property to get away from everyone else!

The villa was very clean and the cleaner seemed to be at the property every couple of days, but without intruding on us. There were plenty of towels and when we asked, the owner brought us towels for the pool and beach.

The kitchen was big enough and had everything we needed to cook for 9 people. The barbecue area was a lovely addition and we enjoyed cooking there too.

My only moan would be that one of the double bedrooms was in the basement (as stated in the description) but when compared with the other rooms it was a disappointment for the person who drew the short straw for it.

We went to the taverna in the village where we all enjoyed the meze, which was enough to fill us without a main course. However, some of us struggled on and thoroughly enjoyed the mains too!

The owners made us very welcome at the property, and any small problems were sorted out very quickly.

All in all a lovely, spacious villa in a beautiful setting, making this a truly lovely holiday.

Je recommande très fortement!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 1 semaine dans cette grande villa avec 7 adultes, le coin terrasse/piscine est immense, le coin barbecue est très sympa du coup les soirées ne se ressembles pas !

Les propriétaires sont très disponibles et généreux ( accueilli par une entrée et un plat maison ainsi qu'une bouteille de vin, les draps ont été changés dans la semaine et la piscine nettoyée ).

La villa est au calme, la ville rethymno est à 10 min en voiture pour les achats et la plage ( mais la propriétaire à un minimarket à 3 min en voiture si besoin).

le reste est conforme à la description et 2 voitures peuvent être garées facilement dans l'enceinte de la villa avec un portail automatique.

Bref je recommande fortement ! et merci aux propriétaires !

Dejligt hus i skønne omgivlser. Ikke "turist præget"

  • 4 of 5

Et dejligt hus i meget smukke omgivelser. Ved ankomst blev vi modtaget med hjemmebagt kage, frugt, vand og vin. Midt på ugen fik vi nye håndklæder - og atter en lækker hjemmebagt kage :-)

Der var meget rent og køkkenet var udstyret så der let kunne laves mad til 10 personer (hvilket ikke altid er tilfældet). Det kunne have været rart hvis der også var air condition i det nederste værelse, da vinduerne ikke kunne åbnes pga de mange katte, der var udenfor. Absolut et hus vi kan anbefale.

Nous revenons de 15 jours de vacances dans la villa Manollia.

15 jours de soleil, de chaleur, de ciel bleu ...

La villa est superbe, spacieuse, confortable. Les draps sont changés régulièrement un vrai plaisir. Une belle grande piscine tellement agréable, un petit vent et les 35 degrés étaient tout à fait supportables. On ne se lasse pas des couchers de soleil et de la mer dans le lointain. Les trois terrasses ont été très appréciées. Tout est fait pour passer de magnifiques vacances.

Mais la différence tient surtout à la gentillesse, la discrétion, la prévenance des propriétaires.

Perfekte Ferien in luxuriösem Haus

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten mit acht Erwachsenen zehn wunderschöne Tage in der Villa Manolia. Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig am Ortsrand und bietet einen traumhaften Blick auf die (im Mai noch schneebedeckten) Berge über Olivenhaine bis zum Meer. Man kann die schönsten Sonnenuntergänge erleben.

Prines ist ein kleiner, noch sehr ursprünglicher Ort mit zwei Tavernen und zwei kleinen "Supermärkten". Die Leute sind sehr gastfreundlich und in den Tavernen läßt es sich lecker griechisch essen.

Haus und Garten sind sehr sauber und gepflegt; alle drei Tage erfolgt ein Wäschewechsel und wird geputzt. Das Besondere für ein Ferienhaus ist, dass jedes Schlafzimmer über ein Bad verfügt. Leider ist das Zimmer im Untergeschoss etwas weniger attraktiv als die anderen Schlafzimmer.

Die Besitzer kümmern sich liebevoll um Haus und Gäste. Man fühlt sich rundum gut versorgt.

Wir empfehlen das Haus ohne Einschränkungen weiter.

One hour by car from Heraklion and only 7 minutes from Rethymnon or 3 min from the sea, 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 the necessary shops can be found in the village, such as 2 supermarkets, a traditional kafenio and two tavernas. 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.
