In the surroundings of historic Arcadi lies a village unlike any other. The location of the Arcadi Monastery Olive Press, a protected medieval monument along with the attached house of the caretaker monk and storage area filled with pitharia (clay storage vessels), Kapsaliana is now a hotel offering modern facilities expected of luxury accommodation. The village’s 12 original houses have been restored and converted into lavish guest houses, with 4 new houses added in identical architectural form. The result is an idyllic mingling of rustic charm and current sophistication, with the area decorated with fascinating artefacts from the days the Olive Press was in use.
A place that evokes the true spirit of Crete, Kapsaliana is the new hidden destination of Crete and is perhaps one of the most unique hotels to have been developed in the country. With an onsite-museum in the form of the Olive Press, the hotel provides a unique base by which to explore an island with a history that extends all the way back to the Neolithic era.
