Great!

  • 5 of 5

We have had a wonderful stay in Prines. The welcoming committee was very kind and helpful, including a home made Mousaka and stuffed vegetables, which tasted great ;-)

The house was excellent, situated on a mountain, far away from the crowds. Very nicely decorated, all new stuff. The garden was marvellous too, the pool had a great view over a olive tree-yard and in the horizon you could see the ocean.

Rhetimno was 15 minutes with the car, and the nearby (5 mins drive) village had some nice tavernas and a supermarket. We advice to rent a car since the house is secluded, which we like a lot.

Beautiful villa in an idyllic quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property set in an olive grove with views of both the mountains and the sea. The villa is about a mile from Prines and a mile and a half from Atsipopoulo where there is a good supermarket, a bakery and a few tavernas. 5 minutes in the car or 20 minutes on foot.

Rehymnon and the beach 15 minutes by car. The villa itself has a good size pool and is very well appointed inside. The owners, the Sofoulakis family, are most welcoming and do everything they can to make for an enjoyable stay. Highly recommended.

Paradise in Prines

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting villas in Crete for many years,but Villa Ifigenia surpassed all our expectations.First of all we were it's first guests,,so everything was brand new,but even so it was just right.First of all we were welcomed with a refrigerator full of goodies,fruit,vegetables,

eggs,beer,a warm cake,and a beautiful plate of fresh fish.All the

facilities in and out of the villa are first class,and the hospitality of

the owners is outstanding.The pool and all the grounds are cleaned

every day.There are many excellent tavernas in the local village of Prines,

and the beaches and attractions of Rethymno are only a short drive away.

Hätten es kaum besser treffen können!

  • 5 of 5

Alles super! Wir waren diesen Juni zwei Wochen dort und wären am liebsten einfach geblieben. Die Villa mit Pool ist ganz neu, super sauber und sehr schön und vor allem liebevoll eingerichtet. Jeden morgen kam jemand von den Vermietern um den Pool zu reinigen. Zwei mal die Woche wurden die Villa von der ganzen Familie von oben bis unten gereinigt und die Handtücher und Bettwäsche wurden gewechselt.

Besonders in Erinnerung wird uns die Vermieter-Familie bleiben. Super einfache und liebevolle Kommunikation (deutsch und englisch), total gastfreundlich und hilfsbereit, sie haben wirklich alles versucht und getan um uns unseren Urlaub erholsam und unvergesslich zu gestalten...und das haben Sie wirklich geschafft...:)

Vielen Dank für alles!

Wunderschöne, saubere und gepflegte Villa

  • 5 of 5

Bestes Ferienhaus, das wir je gemietet haben. Es ist noch sehr neu, aber wenn es weiterhin so liebevoll gepflegt und gehegt wird, kann nichts schiefgehen! Ideale Größe für 3 - 4 Personen, funktionierende Klimaanlage, intakte Insektengitter an den Fenstern, gute Küchenausstattung, perfekter Pool, erhabener Blick über Berge und Meer, super Service (zur Begrüßung gab es hausgemachtes Moussaka, frisches Obst, eine Grundausstattung an Frühstückszutaten sowie Gewürze, Olivenöl, Raki... zwischendurch kleine Aufmerksamkeiten wie gefülltes Gemüse... köstlich!) Tägliche, äußerst diskrete Reinigung von Pool und Garten und sogar 1 x die Woche Bettwäsche- und Handtuchwechsel. Schöner, gemauerter Grill. Fenster in den Schlafräumen mit Rollläden zur absoluten Verdunkelung (wenn gewünscht). Dorf mit 3 Tavernen und Mini-Markt sowie einem guten Fleischer (der auch Käse verkauft) ist fußläufig im Rahmen eines kleinen Spaziergangs zu erreichen. Nicht zuletzt: die sehr sympathische Familie Sofoulakis! Danke!
