Guardians of a place that has existed long before us, we were inspired by nature’s beauty and the wisdom of times gone by, to create a one off holiday resort that redefines luxury and the concept of the good life.
Propelled by love and awe for this magical place set amidst Crete’s largest olive grove, we embarked on an exciting- albeit sometimes daunting- journey; which was to last for almost four decades. Even though we didn’t realise it from the beginning, our aim had always been to breathe new life into Kapsaliana in Rethymnon, Crete-the once thriving, autonomous community built around an old olive mill.
Still a work in progress, Kapsaliana Village, a historical hotel in Rethymno, Crete which has been characterized by Presidential Decree as of “High Cultural Value”, nowadays constitutes a novel travel proposal: One that seamlessly blends intelligent luxury with authentic, bespoke experiences; one where discovery is a way of life; and the quest for equilibrium the ultimate objective.
Kapsaliana Village hotel pays homage to the past; celebrates the present; and paves the way to a more a balanced, sustainable future. With our hosts as your personal guide, we invite you to explore and revel in the possibility of each moment. For here, time melts away as you lose yourself in experiences that will stay with you for a lifetime. Welcome to a world of serenity and wonder. Welcome to Kapsaliana Village hotel!
