“Great villa in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 6 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Villa Artemis is beautifully situated on a hill just outside Prines, which is close to Rethymno. From the villa you have a great view. First on the garden and the pool and then on the green surroundings to the sea and to the mountaintops. You hear the birds and the sheep. The villa is great; very well equipped and spotlessly clean. The owners, the Sofoulaki family, are a very warm, generous and friendly family. They make you feel at home from the very first moment. We had a great week in Crete with great weather (not to hot, but a nice temperature). We can recommend visiting Preveli Beach in the South. We took the boat from Plakias. The downside of taking the boat is waiting for it to return to Plakias. Also the Mili Gorge and Lake Kournas are worth a visit. We liked visiting the old town of Rethymo. We strongly preferred this over the part at the Venetian harbour, which is more commercial. We had a great dinner in the taverna Giannikos in Prines. The kids loved the pool (although it was still a little bit cold for the pool at this of year) and the gym underneath the villa. We want to thank Stella, Rula, Dimitris, George and Mary for their care.

“Our home in Crete !”
Reviewed 25 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We have just come back from 3 weeks at the villa and as its our 4 th holiday there we now feel like it's home from home. The facilities are first class, the views are spectacular and the location is a perfect fit for those in the family who want space,peace and quiet, and those who enjoy the restaurants and nightlife in nearby Rethymnon.
However the real difference in booking this villa from many others we have been to is the detail and care the owners and their whole family put into making you feel welcome and that you have everything you could need. On our last holiday they even invited us to a wedding - a real Mama Mia moment !
A really wonderful place to stay!

“THE VILLA OF YOUR DREAMS”
Reviewed 25 February 2016 for a stay in August 2014

If you are looking for the perfect vacation,then Villa Artemis in Prines Crete is the place for you..Set in beautiful grounds of over 2 acres,the only sounds you will hear are the sheep grazing in the nearby pastures.The Sofoulakis family will take care of your every need,and you will probably reserve the villa again for the coming year before you leave.
