The Rethymnon Prefecture region
Villa Sofia is situated in the village of Prines, a traditional village near the city of Rethymno. Prines is a village full of old-rustic houses and villas that date back hundreds of years.
The center of the city of Rethymno is a 15 minute car drive away
The region of Rethymno as a whole is rich with history. The town still maintains its old aristocratic appearance, with its buildings dating from the 16th century, arched doorways, stone staircases, Byzantine and Hellenic-Roman remains, the small Venetian harbor and narrow streets. The city's Venetian-era citadel, the Fortezza, is one of the best-preserved castles in Crete. Lots of other monuments are worth seeing in the area as well.
A 10 minute car drive separates Villa Sofia from the Closest Beach. Crete's beaches are famous worldwide.
Other famous and worthwhile attractions that are close by are: The Samaria gorge, the Preveli monastery, Plakias, the city of Chania, the ancient ruins of Knossos and many more.
In the middle of a cluster of rustic, traditional structures, close to small shops and a lot of nature, Villa Sofia will situate you in a true Cretan village setting.
Located in the village of Prines, Villa Sofia is situated almost at the center of the island, making most sites the island has to offer easy to access.
