Village with a few kafeneons and tavernas. Regular buses to Rethimno. Approximately 2 kilometres from Atsipopoulo and 3 kilometres from Rethimno.Prines is a sought after rural location due to its close proximity to both Rethymno town and local beaches. Situated 4 km west of Rethymno and just 1.9km from the coast, the area is renowned for growing carob, and plenty of the old trees are dotted around the neighborhood. An old oak wood runs along one side of the plot and to the north and south are olive groves.
Now protected under Greek building law, any new development within this traditional village, must comply with strict regulations. For prospective buyers this means that houses must have a pitched and tiled roof and brown colored windows and doors either of wood or UPVC.
