Villa Caneva is a 120 sq. m. stone built villa, located on a hill surrounded by trees next to the village of Prines. Only 10 minutes away from Rethymno town and the beach this renovated villa was formerly an old traditional aqueduct built in the 1950s! It can accommodate 6 people in beds and up to 8 people. On the ground floor you will find the living room area with an indoor dinning table, a fully equipped kitchen and one bathroom with shower! The kitchen area has an exit to the barbecue area and the garden. On the first floor, there are 3 bedrooms and one bathroom with a shower. Two bedrooms are double bedded with access to the veranda and the other hosts a bunk bed (2 joined single beds). All bedrooms are air-conditioned. The house keeps also its own cool temperature because of the stone made walls. Outdoors close to the flower gardens and trees a private swimming pool with sun beds and umbrellas can be found. Also you will find a fully equipped barbecue area, many seating areas with view and a lot of space for children to play. The whole area is fenced and secured by a security camera system directed at the main gate. The villa is not suitable for people with disabilities and walking difficulties. The unique benefits of Caneva villa according to my opinion are: - Spacious fenced outdoor areas surrounded by trees and nature. - Serenity with fabulous views. - Great location, a feeling of privacy without actually being too far from anything. Only 300 m from the village of Prines with its cafe, taverns and a mini market, 5 minutes away from Atsipopoulo an even larger village with numerous amenities and 10 minutes from Rethymno and the beach! - Bus to Rethymno is available. - Full privacy in all outdoor areas as the villa is located on a hill. - Ideal for families with children because of the outdoor layout. Children will have plenty of fenced space to play without being near to the pool. - It's stone construction means that the house is always cool maintaining the same temperature. - The hospitality of the owner who will be on hand if need be ready to help or give you advice! Villa Caneva Location: Villa Caneva is situated outside the historic town of Rethymno, in the traditional village of Prines. The village itself is beautiful, flourishing with flora and olive groves. A perfect option for those who appreciate nature and are looking for peace. Being a small countryside village, Prines has only a few small shops however, your basic requirements will be met by the local mini-market, the traditional cafes and the excellent tavern almost 300 m away from our villa. Staying in Prines village will give you the advantage of both countryside life and being less than 10 min away from Rethymno town by car. The nearest beach is Koubes beach which is approximately 5 km away at the entrance of Rethymno town. This bustling town with its long sandy beach and its numerous amenities is only a 10 minutes drive (7km). An alternative option is the quieter sandy beach of Episkopi village approximately 10 km away on the road to Chania. Due to the location of the villa, you also have the advantage of easily visiting the South coast where you can find some of Crete’s truly amazing natural beaches such as “Schinaria”, “Damnoni”, “Triopetra”, “Agios Pavlos” and 'Preveli'. The distance to the South coast is about 45 minutes from the villa by car. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 1041K10003016601More

The villa is well-positioned, quiet (we heard some dogs, a little bit of poolside laughter and church bells, but not to disturb us), yet less than 10 minutes' walk from Prines, where Taverna Giannikos, amongst 3 good tavernas, offers a superb welcome. The property is...More
