There is a dreamy, magical place hiding in the perfect valley in Southern Greece among idyllic vineyards, olive groves and citrus trees, just minutes away from the blue Mediterranean. The Kinsterna Hotel, once an impressive mansion and estate dating from Byzantine, Ottoman and Venetian times, has carefully been returned to its former glory with an air of luxury.
Overlooking the legendary castle rock of Monemvasia, the Kinsterna has revived centuries-old traditions such as winemaking and olive oil production, recreating the perfect model of sustainability. Fruit-bearing trees, fertile vegetable patches, aromatic herb gardens and the endless supply of spring water all help support this outstanding philosophy.
Beyond its fascinating history as a wealthy refuge and lord's mansion over several centuries, the Kinsterna today is an all-year hotspot for excellent accommodation and holidays. Visit the wine cellar, experience the locally inspired treatments at the spa and sample the freshest Mediterranean recipes in a fine-dining atmosphere. A visit to the Kinsterna represents an experience that will no doubt be etched into your memory for years to come. And you will be back.
