Flat plot near Rethymno, at the outskirt of the village overlooking the stunning Cretan mountains, a flat and easy to handle plot is now available for sale...

In a distance of just 5km from where the heart of the city of Rethymnon beats, at the outskirt of the wonderful and graphic village of Prines two (2) plots of land totalling 2.000m are now sold together.

Benefiting from 400sm building density and being close to water, electricity and phone supply this land is truly ideal for the construction of a home occupied either permanently or for your holiday in Crete with amazing mountain vistas.


Prines is a small historical village, just 7 minutes away from the town of Rethymnon. The graphic village was a central place during the Venetian occupation of Crete. The church of St. Nicolas at the edge of the village dates from the 13th century. It may be a small, traditional and quiet village, but all the necessary shops and facilities can be found there, including two supermarkets, a traditional coffee place and a tavern, a butcher's shop with Cretan, top quality meat, a shop with Cretan dairy products and honey and a gas station.

The village itself is surrounded by nature and is ideal for people who like quiet and traditional places. Also the town of Rethymnon is very close, offering many and diverse opportunities for entertainment and night life. Also, Rethymnon, being at the gravity centre of Crete, is the ideal base and starting point for your exploration of the beautiful island of Crete.

Specifically, the village of Prines is seven (7) minutes away from the center of the town of Rethymnon and another seven (7) minutes away from the beautiful beach of Episkopi. All the other parts of Crete, Chania, Heraklion, and Agios Nikolaos are just a short drive away. Specifically, Chania is 40 minutes away, Heraklion 1 hour, and Agios Nikolaos 1 hour and 40 minutes. Although there are public transportations available to tour around Crete we highly recommend that you rent a car as this is the most convenient and quick way to explore Crete.

Additional historical data about the village of Prines are recorded by Barozzi (1577) and by Kastrofilakas (1583) as “Prines and Dependencies”, and by Vasilikatas (1630). With a population of 430, in the censuses of 1881 and 1900 the village is ascribed to the Municipality of Atsipopoulo, with approximately 520 inhabitants, while since 1928 Prines is known as the birthplace of Markos Kaloudis, a member of the revolutionary "Holy Company" who distinguished himself in battle at Dragatsani and Frangokastelo. Kaloudis died in 1886, having left his entire estate to the District of Rethymnon, to fund the education of local born teachers.

The village is noted for its picturesque alleyways and the traditional stone houses; Other local attractions include the Bemboyiannis Mill and a traditional olive press.

The former municipal ward of Prines (now Rethymnon) extends to the small village of Vederi, known for its Venetian buildings. A magnificent stone-threshing floor is visible to the right of the road linking the two villages. The Church of Agios Antonios (1833), featuring icons by Ioannis Stathakis, is also well worth visiting.
