Swim in the 8 meter pool. Relax amongst spacious well furnished sun terraces. And there is a separate children’s section, which has a depth of 0.4 of a meter. There is ample outside dining for those meals al-fresco and the brick built barbeque compliments this area. The grounds are vast and gradually the owner is renovating the old grain threshing circle and olive press-all adding character and charm to this property. At night the pool and surrounding area is lit with the lights of Rethymnon in the distance. This really is an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Located near the traditional village of Prines. It is 7 kilometers away from the center of Rethymnon and only 5 kilometers from the nearest beach.
Prines is a traditional old village. Beautiful, with plentiful vegetation, mainly olive trees as well as oak trees. Ideal for those who love nature – peace and quiet of country life. It has the beautiful old church of St. Nicholas which was built in the 13th century and a spring of water that has been running for many centuries. Prines has only a few small shops, as would be expected of a small country village. But all your basic needs will be met with a mini-market, some traditional cafes and an excellent tavern about 1km from Villa Artemis. The nearest beach is Koubes beach which is approximately 5 km away, while the beach of Petres is only 6 km away.

D2 UK Review Submitted: July 20, 2010 Date of Stay: June 2009 If you want to stay in a comfortable, attractive villa, well appointed with everything you need, (almost home from home) surrounded by olive trees then this the place. Villa Artemis is about 20 minutes walk from the village of of Atsipopoulu. A typical local village which isn’t obvious at first but has everything you need, from fresh fish in the mornings, to delicious pastries, family run grocery store, internet cafe, ATM and the most delicious cakes. It was lovely to walk into Villa Artemis and see someone has cared. The cupboards were full of all the ‘basics’ and there was a generous supply of attractive glass and crockery. It was so good to be able to spend a day relaxing in a quiet comfortable house by the pool soothed by the gentle breezes. Rethymon was about 15 mins drive away and we loved discovering the surrounding countryside and travelling to the south for an idyllic lunch by a beautiful beach. We also found lovely long sandy beaches west of Rethymon, about 20 minutes drive away. Most impressive was the attention to detail and the care the owners gave to us. Thank you Stella, and Rhula, who came to clean and changed our linen and always left a gift of food, home made moussaka or cake, acoompanied by a little note. We had a memorable holiday It was lovely getting to know the local area and I wouldn’t hesitate to return someday.Thank you Recommended for: Age 55+, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children, Romantic Getaway more customer reviews at Guest Book
