Property Description

Kapsaliana Village Hotel, a hotel that is part of an abandoned village, now beautifully restored.

On approaching Kapsaliana you will realise that the hotel is the village itself, a fascinating group of stone buildings of Cretan and Venetian architecture, nestling in peaceful surroundings with superb views of the countryside and the sea. It is the perfect place for rest and relaxation, particularly as the whole settlement has been painstakingly renovated using natural materials to create a harmonious blend of old and new. The mixture of the traditional Cretan architecture of the houses and courtyards combined with Venetian carved stone vaults and outside staircases, make it a visually appealing compound.

The village has been in existence since 1763 when the first building was constructed in the area of the olive press.  A few years later the private olive mill was built, during the tenure of Abbot Filaret at Arkadi Monastery, which is only 4 km away from the settlement and is an important cultural and historical site well worth visiting.  At the time the olive press was built some houses were also added, and further houses, of one or two storeys, were built in the following years.

Written sources indicate a long tradition of oil production which peaked in the second half of the 18th century.  The land register of the monastery states that in the last decade of the 19th century Kapsaliana had 1247 olive trees.  All this changed when the olive press closed down in 1955 and the settlement was gradually abandoned.

Seventeen of the original houses, which had been ruined by years of abandonment and neglect, have been carefully converted into comfortable elegant guest houses clustered around the old Olive Press.  Four new houses have been created in the same architectural style as the original houses.  Each house is individual in design and has all the modern amenities within simple, tasteful interiors. Most houses have their own fireplace, private terrace, free internet access, music channels, satellite TV, mini bar, air-conditioning and central heating.

The Olive Press has been transformed into a lounge area for guests, complete with fireplace, comfortable armchairs and sofas, a TV corner, books and magazines.  There is also a large outdoor swimming pool for guests to swim, sunbathe and enjoy cool drinks and snacks from the bar.

At the centre of the settlement is a large stone building with an outside terrace and garden square, this houses the reception, restaurant/café and lounge. The restaurant and café allows the guests to enjoy a delicious meal or drink in front of a blazing fire or outside on the terrace. The terrace is covered by a pergola and can cater for groups of up to 150 people. In addition, the reception area includes a small lounge and a gift shop selling local handicrafts.
