“Wonderful”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

What to say about Villa Phaedra...Just Wonderful.

The location is well situated just 10 minutes from rethymnon a city wher you can shop and have fun.
The villa is very well furnished, equiped and a nice garden with a swimming pool.
We are in the center of crete to make the most interreting visit.

And Alexandra with her family are so kind, always here to help you or inform you on what to visit.
She also bakes cake or crete specialities for her host....
Do not hesitate...

I stayed at Villa Phaedra for a week recently with my wife and two kids aged 6 and 8. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday there and would love to go back and use it as a base to explore more of the island.

The villa is located a quiet ten minute walk from the centre of Prines village where there are a couple of very good tavernas (see my review of Giannikos) and a small store. Other eating and shopping options (including the most wonderful ice-creamery) are available a few minutes drive away towards Atsipopoulo and it's easy to access the main coastal highway and Rethymno within a few minutes.

The villa is of a high quality throughout, having been refurbished a few years ago and the layout worked for us, a family of four, very well. It is well equipped with TV, DVD, Sat-TV, wi-fi, washing machine, etc. As an English-only speaker the satellite TV wasn't really up to much - lots of Arabic-language channels.

The pool is of a very good size and was very clean - my kids' swimming improved immensely. Lots of sun loungers and a couple of large umbrellas are also provided. It is worth noting that the pool is on the "road-side" of the villa. This was not a problem for us and we never felt exposed as the road only serves a few other villas and I counted only a handful of passers-by in a day; but it's not completely private. Some young trees have been planted along the edge which will soon grow out enough to shield the view pretty much completely. There is also a locking gate across the extensive drive.

Finally, there are the owners, Alexandra and her husband, who could not be more helpful and accommodating. Any small issue we encountered, e.g. the gate lock sticking, was sorted very swiftly and Alexandra was very generous to us and the kids during the week.
