The space

Villa Aphrodite is a most attractive 3 bedroomed villa, situated in some 2 acres of unspoilt countryside, just 6km inland from Rethymno. Villa Aphrodite is surrounded by old olive groves, oak trees and is reached via a winding country lane and then a long private drive. The living area of the villa is on one level and the interiors are simple, fresh and modern in style. The interior of the villa is open plan with pretty matching sofas, satellite TV, DVD, dining table and from here there is a well-equipped kitchen and two bathrooms, each equipped with shower/WC. 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.

The region of Rethymno in Crete offers some of the most interesting and beautiful landscapes in Greece. Our villa Aphrodite is located in Prines, a picturesque village close to Rethymno. An area of outstanding natural beauty, the countryside lends itself to fascinating walks and mountain biking. The traditional village of Prines is just a few minutes stroll from our villa to find a local tavern and a mini-market. There are also local shops, bakery, butcher, cafes and chemist close to our villa. Within a 10 minute drive from Prines there are sandy beaches which offer good facilities. Situated in the middle of Crete, our villa provides an ideal base to explore Crete. Some interesting sights close to Rethymno are the monasteries of Arkadi and Preveli, Plakias, Lake Kournas, the natural springs of Argiroupolis, Episkopi and Georgioupolis beaches for beach lovers.

This is a wonderful villa, managed by a wonderful & helpful family. We arrived very late (nearly 1.a.m!) to be met by Stella's brother Georgiou, who came from his home in the next village to meet us & check us into the villa. When we arrived, we found the fridge fully stocked with all we needed to get us settled in (bread,cheeses,eggs,ham,drinks,wine etc). Stella's Mother had even cooked us a home made moussaka! The villa is spacious internally & has a great outdoor area with a lovely pool,BBQ area & plenty of family entertainment (ping pong, boules etc). It's rural setting provides a very quiet & peaceful environment with great views of the sea & mountains in the distance. The bustling town of Rethymnon, with countless lovely restaurants,bars & shopping is a 10-15 minute easy drive away. On the doorstep you there is a small village with a couple of Tavernas & a village store. We would highly recommend Giannikos Taverna, run by super friendly Yanni We are a seasoned AirBnb family & would highly recommend this villa.
