The hotel is in an amazing setting in the hills in a very unspoilt area inland of Rethymnon. The rooms are all different and extremely comfortable with an amazing attention to detail. The restaurant is in a lovely setting and the food was the best we have ever eaten in Greece! The choices available for the buffet breakfast were all...

We spent a week at Kapsaliana Village Hotel in September 2016 for our honeymoon, and we had the most wonderful time. The hotel is beautifully restored from the old village, and it has the most amazing sense of calm and tranquility. There are beautiful flowers and trees, and the views of the countryside are stunning. The pool is a lovely...

It has its own olive press, swimming pool, church and resident cat. The grounds include lemon, orange, pomegranate and olive trees with stunning views across the country side towards the sea in the distance. The rooms are stylish...

Beautiful location, lovely nature and nice views, very tastefully and artistically restored old buildings especially the old olive press, rooms well appointed, nice swimming pool. Very friendly, helpful and efficient staff. Top class cuisine. Very good breakfast buffet with first class local ingredients. There should be more space available for parking.

This beautiful hotel was actually a small village / settlement with an olive press belonging to the nearby Moni Arkadiou monastery of national fame, active in the 17th century and abandoned sometime thereafter. It has been carefully and beautifully restored by the current owner, an architect, who has turned it into an amazing hotel, with rooms spread out over a...

We stayed at Kapsalania Village Hotel in May with a group of old friends and had a perfect, relaxed week. The owner has created a world of style and charm from the ruins of a deserted village complete with a fascinating museum of the old olive oil mill. Each guest has their own house found down quiet twisting paths bedecked...

Very impressed with the cuisine of this place. We had the black risotto which was very flavorful. Also had the lamb sous vide. Nice waitstaff, gave us a complimentary dessert. Highly recommend if you enjoy something more gourmet, reasonable price for the quality.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Member of the Historic Hotels of Europe, Kapsaliana Village Hotel in Crete offers accommodation profoundly different from any other in the Mediterranean. A holiday experience in a village which has been fully restored with high respect to the history and architecture of this land. Kapsaliana was part of the Arkadi Monastery. The story of the settlement starts in 1600 with the construction of the church, and continues with the creation of the olive oil mill in 1763. More people then came to the area to work on the olive trees and land, and built houses around the olive oil mill which, during the peak era, accommodated 13 families and 50 people. Nowadays, the settlement of Kapsaliana has been converted with love and artistry into a unique hotel. With particular care and diligent work the olive oil mill, the church and the utility rooms were gradually transformed into rooms and suites, restaurant, swimming pool and lounge. ... more   less
