Kapsaliana is a beautifully restored Cretan hamlet, in the hills behind the coast. The "cottages" are a series of decent sized rooms, mostly with their own terrace or garden. Very quiet, with a lovely garden and pool, it also has a great restaurant cooking delicious local dishes. The bedrooms are simple but stylish, with quality linen. 20 minutes drive into Rethymno for good shopping and nightlife and only 90 minutes from Heraklion airport, Kapsaliana is a gem.
