We spent a week at Kapsaliana. The staff was polite, helpful and attentive. The food was so good that we never had dinner anywhere else. Our room (Aquarius suite) was extremely comfortable and this was the only good hotel I could find in Crete with a fireplace inside the room. It was necessary since we stayed during the month of January when it gets cold at night. The heating also works very well.
The hamlet has been restored over 40 years with care and great attention to details, we can only reccommend Kapsaliana and hope to be back soon.
- 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
