Kapsaliana Village Hotel

Kapsaliana, 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 restored Olive Mill, rooms are beautifully presented with bold wooden beams, mighty stone walls, and carefully selected furniture. Arches, cobblestone lanes, terraces, sublime views of the surrounding countryside and the sea, and a refreshing pool all contribute to an idyllic retreat and a taste of Cretan life—though surely rural life was never as luxe as this.
