    Additional Location Information
    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. Cretes 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.

La maison est parfaite, spacieuse, très bien équipée, moderne et très propre. Les 2 terrasses extérieures bénéficient d'ombre et de soleil à tout moment de la journée. Le village de Prines est près de Réthymnon, ce qui est appréciable. Notre seule petite déception a été la taille de la piscine, beaucoup plus petite qu'il n'y parait sur la photo. Nous avons été accueillis très gentiment par la maman de Manolis, un grand merci! Nous avons apprécié les gâteaux qui nous attendaient à notre arrivée...
Vraiment une excellente location!
