General information

The villa is a tranquil, modern villa located in an idyllic, natural environment offering absolute privacy. It was built in 2008 on the outskirts of the quiet village of Prines. Prines is only 6km from the traditional town of Rethymnon and only 50km from the cosmopolitan city of Chania. The villa has 200 square meters of spacious living space and was build on a blossoming piece of land of 4.000 square meters that is connected with a 5.000 square meter olive grove. The flowers in the gardens are flowers and trees common to Crete but the gardens are distinguished for the collection of herbs that give characteristic beautiful smells in and out of the villa.

The villa has been build with a great respect to the natural environment and this is why you can see big old trees with huge trunks in the gardens. The décor of each room has a character that has been inspired by the see views, by the beautiful natural surroundings and by the romantic and idyllic evenings in the villa.

The materials and fabrics used in the villa are always kept in an exceptionally clean condition that we are praised for.

The villa offers a calm, secluded environment and is suitable for max 10 persons.

The warm welcome, the service and the hospitality will make your stay comfortable and stress free!

It has two comfortable sofas and an armchair where the visitors can relax and watch satellite TV, films on the DVD or play board or card games or just choose a book from the library to read and relax!

The living room is surrounded by a big terrace and this allows you to have sea views or views of the gardens and the olive grove even when you are sitting in the living room.

The colours are warm natural colours that fit with the natural environment and the artistic mood of the garden design.

The dining table is big enough to host 10 people however many of our visitors prefer to have their dinner in the big balconies that are fully furnished in order to enjoy the warm weather and the summer breeze.

The first bedroom has a double bed, spacious cupboards, and an en suite bathroom with a bathtub. The colours of this room are blue and the decoration is inspired by the sea views of the villa.

Villa – Top floor

The top floor is the most impressive part of the villa. This is because of the big windows, the enormous terrace and the fantastic sea and mountain views that it offers. Our visitors spend a lot of time relaxing and admiring the sea views and the view of the White Mountains from this spacious terrace. Being there you feel the aura and it gives you energy by creating a unique feeling of you being a part of the nature.

There are two bedrooms on the top floor. One of them has a double bed with traditional and romantic touches of decoration. It has a big en suite bathroom where you can also find and use a washing machine for your laundry and the other bedroom has a king size bed with more modern touches of decoration and a beautiful bathroom with a shower. All rooms go with soft and clean white cotton bed sheets and soft cotton towels.
