Our villa has been renovated in 2015 for this specific purpose. The entrance has pretty flower beds, twin patios and comfortable garden furniture. There is ample outside dining for those meals al-fresco and the brick build barbecue compliments this area. Stone steps lead down into the gardens, to a 40sqm swimming pool with children's pool and the raised pool terraces are equipped with sunbeds and sun umbrellas. There are a few local shops and tavernas in Prines. A car is essential. More
