Kapsaliana Village Hotel Greece, Crete

We are delighted to have discovered the Kapsaliana Village Hotel – a place that evokes the true spirit of Crete. Twelve original houses have been restored and converted into lavish suites offering an idyllic mingling of rustic charm and contemporary sophistication whilst retaining the essence of their Venetian origin. Nestling in peaceful surroundings with superb views of the countryside and the sea in the distance, Kapsaliana is the perfect place for rest and relaxation.

Combined with a friendly and hospitable service, the hotel offers a delightful restaurant with Cretan cuisine produced with the finest organic products from the surrounding area.

Just a few kilometres away is the fascinating Arkadi Monastery, a national sanctuary with a colourful history of courage and sacrifice.

Kapsaliana is an excellent spot for exploring and is one of the most unique country hotels on the whole island.

  • The Kapsiliana Village Hotel, which is in the hills above Rethymnon on the North Coast of Crete, is a wonderful 'get away' destination. Originally an old Olive oil mill,fallen into disuse, and a number of deserted houses, it has been stunningly converted into a delightful hotel by a Cretan architect. Far from the city bustle, the hotel is full of interesting objects with cool stone and pale colours giving a feeling of relaxation. The rooms are more like little houses and stairs and doorways reveal new,attractive views. The pool and gardens are charming and friendly,helpful staff, plus good food based on Cretan recipes, add up to an unforgettable holiday. Mrs Osman - June 2014
