It is well laid out in 80sq metres with an open plan kitchen, dining area and a living room downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs. The swimming pool is also for private use.

We have had a wonderful stay in Prines. The welcoming committee was very kind and helpful, including a home made Mousaka and stuffed vegetables, which tasted great ;-)

The house was excellent, situated on a mountain, far away from the crowds. Very nicely decorated, all new stuff. The garden was marvellous too, the pool had a great view over a olive tree-yard and in the horizon you could see the ocean.

Rhetimno was 15 minutes with the car, and the nearby (5 mins drive) village had some nice tavernas and a supermarket. We advice to rent a car since the house is secluded, which we like a lot.

Beautiful villa in an idyllic quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property set in an olive grove with views of both the mountains and the sea. 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.

Paradise in Prines

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting villas in Crete for many years,but Villa Ifigenia surpassed all our expectations.First of all we were it's first guests,,so everything was brand new,but even so it was just right.First of all we were welcomed with a refrigerator full of goodies,fruit,vegetables,

eggs,beer,a warm cake,and a beautiful plate of fresh fish.All the

facilities in and out of the villa are first class,and the hospitality of

the owners is outstanding.The pool and all the grounds are cleaned

every day.There are many excellent tavernas in the local village of Prines,

and the beaches and attractions of Rethymno are only a short drive away.

Toller, entspannter Urlaub inmitten von Olivenhainen

  • 5 of 5

Wir, zwei Erwachsene und ein Kind (4) hatten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt. Die Kommunikation stimmte von Anfang an. Von der Wegbeschreibung im Vorfeld bis hin zum Abschied. Echte Gastfreundschaft gepaart mit herzlichem familiären Service, angemessener Diskretion und dem eigenen hohen Qualitätsanspruch gehen miteinander einher. Es wird einem leicht gemacht, die Dinge des Alltags loszulassen und inmitten von Olivenhainen und Vogelgezwitscher und darüber hinaus einem großartigem Ausblick die Seele baumeln zu lassen. Ein Auto wird empfohlen. Alltägliche Dinge sind in kurzen Wegen zu erreichen . Jederzeit würden wir gerne den Urlaub wiederholen und bedanken uns für die ausnahmslos schöne Zeit.
