 In our opinion Villa Caneva’s unique qualities are:
- Spacious fenced outdoor areas surrounded by trees and nature.
- Serenity with fabulous views.
- Great location, a feeling of privacy without actually being too far from anything. Only 300 m from the village of Prines with its cafe, taverns and a mini market, 5 minutes away from Atsipopoulo an even larger village with numerous amenities and 10 minutes from Rethymno and the beach! - Bus to Rethymno is available.
- Full privacy in all outdoor areas as the villa is located on a hill.
- Ideal for families with children because of the outdoor layout.  Children will have plenty of fenced space to play without being near to the pool.
- It's stone construction means that the house is always cool maintaining the same temperature.
- The hospitality of the owner who will be on hand if need be ready to help or give you advice!
