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.

From the Kapsaliana Village Hotel you can cross the island to the south coast through the Amari valley which is a very nice drive. You will end op whether in Spili or even in Aghia Galini which is close to Phaestos and Matala. It takes maybe a bit longer then when you pass from Rethymnon but it is worthwhile. You need 1 1/2 hour more or less.

How difficult to visit Knossos from here?
From the Kapsaliana Village Hotel you need about 1 hour 15 minutes by car to reach the Palace of Knossos and the archelogical museum of Heraklion ( a must). Since you will drive from the National Road it is not difficult.
