The village of Prines itself offers you walking opportunities in its old streets, where you can get a sense of its religion, its history and rural life. Tavernas in the nearby area and some delivery-at home facilities offer to introduce you to tasty local dishes and wine, making your stay here very easy and comfortable. At a small distance you can find several super and mini-markets, bakery, meat and green grocery shops.
The closest beaches for sea-swimming are in 3 km from the villa, at the Gerani and the Petres beaches. If you follow the national road from it, you have an extensive choice of uncrowded sandy beaches. Continuing your trip to the large village of Georgioupolis you can swim in sea waters pleasantly mixed with the sweet water from the river coming from the spring at Argiroupolis. Few kilometers away you find the nearby picturesque lake of Cournas, the sole lake in Crete, at a total distance only twenty five-thirty minutes driving from our mansion. You can swim there, eat at the tavernas and have a trip on a peddle-boat!
At night the city of Rethymno, 6 km away from the mansion, offers you the excitement of intense night life in bars and tavernas within the town and next to the sea.
