5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2010

Anastasia takes great pride in her villa and rightly so. It is clean, comfortable and ideally located, on the outskirts of the village of Prines and a few miles above Rethymnon.

More than that, Anastasia is an excellent hostess. She took great care to clean the villa everyday in an unobtrusive manner. In addition, there was always a lovely surprise of Cretan pastries or a delicious apple cake awaiting us after a day's sightseeing.

Unlike many of the more box-like modern villas, it is built in the traditional stone style but with every modern comfort. It is clean and user-friendly, perfect for a family or a group of friends.

An added bonus is the lovely swimming pool and private olive grove. Completely private but within walking distance of a mini-supermarket and a taverna.

We will definately be back!

Arriving in Prines, we were breath taken by this beautiful village where time stands still. The people are so friendly with welcoming smiles. Go and say hi to Yannis in the village square Taverna, wonderful food and great prices.The local shops are excellent, offering value for money, fresh produce and customer service with a smile. All try to speak english, so being understood is easy. Villa Anastasia will take your breath away, nestled at the end of the village yet within walking distance to all amenities; everything you need is on your doorstep. Crete’s 'best kept secret' is a gem of a find. With daily cleaned pool and olive gardens that are bursting with colour. The Cretan sun will caress you as you lie in Villa Anastasia, totally private and peaceful; you can skinny dip to your hearts content. The Villa is 100% clean, Anastasia herself coming in everyday making the beds, changing linen, towels and making sure you are completely happy with her excellent service. Anastasia is one of a kind; she makes you feel like you are her family. Anastasia cooks and leaves beautiful surprises for you to savour, her genuine friendship is magnetic which will draw you back again and again. Situated just 15 minutes to the beautiful sandy beaches of Episcope, if you can pull yourself away from Villa Anastasia's clean fresh water of the villa pool, go salt yourself in the turquoise sea, surrounded by spectacular mountains. Just 10 minutes to Rethymnon with beaches and ancient town full of cultural surprises and 25 minutes to Georgioupoli, a beautiful harbour and beach, Prines is perfectly placed for getting around. Bravo Villa Anastasia, will see you soon ...
