About the neighbourhood
PRINES is a quiet, authentic Cretan village. The village, with its Ottoman and Venetian architectural influence is built at an attitude of 200 m. above sea level. Although it is located at a distance of 5 km from the town of Rethymno it keeps the tranquility and the oradinary tempo of life in a village. The nearest beach is only 2 km from the village driving on a very nice road with wild oak trees around there. In the village there are restaurants, mini markets where you will find everything you need and cafe, so, if you want, you can stay and enjoy relaxing in the village. If not, you can visit the traditional villages and monasteries around Prines village, swimming in fantastic sandy beaches in the area or visiting Rethymno town again and again (5' min. driving from the villa).
Getting around
