Villa Sofia benefits from an ideal setting and surrounding area. It is surrounded by a cluster of rustic traditional houses, many of which have been deserted for decades. While being in a traditional Cretan village, surrounded by plenty of nature and a stunning landscape, it is also just a few minutes away (by car) from the town of Rethymno, the historical sites, shops, nightlife and various activities it has to offer. Furthermore,Villa Sofia is located almost at the center of Crete, close to the national highway and road which can lead you quickly to the most stunning beaches and popular destinations located both in the North and the South of the island.
Finally, a complex network of villages around Prines provide an almost limitless amount of places to explore.In order to make the most out of your stay, a car rental is highly recommended.
