Kapsaliana Village Hotel

Arkadi, Crete, 74100, Greece

A 300-year-old hamlet set amid vast olive groves has been converted to one of Crete's most distinctive and relaxing lodgings with luxurious, stylishly appointed rooms, welcoming lounges, and an excellent dining room—all fashioned out of beautiful, ancient stone houses that were once part of the Arkadi Monastery holdings. Surrounding the main lounge of the large Olive Press house are 12 bungalows, designed with bold wooden beams, mighty stone walls, and the occasional farm utensil/modern art sculpture. Stone work, arches, cobbled lanes, lovely views of the countryside and the sea, terraces, and a refreshing pool all contribute to an idyllic retreat and a taste of Cretan life—though rural life was never as luxe as this.
