Surrounded by the largest olive grove on the island, Kapsaliana Village is in a peaceful location with excellent views of the countryside and the sea. A beautifully renovated cluster of stone village houses, which once belonged to the Arkadi monastery and are centred around a good-sized pool. A work in progress by owner Myron Toupogianis who has been buying up houses in what was once an abandoned village, and lovingly restoring them. In total there are now 22 houses that were built between the 17th and 19th centuries. Linked by stone-paved lanes and lined by herb and fruit orchards. Each house is different, with plenty of original features. They have the same stone walls, floors and historic arches, wooden ceilings, and bathrooms with turquoise and jade tiled showers. Most have a fireplace.

An excellent breakfast is served on the raised terrace and the evening meal is equally delicious, mostly organic and traditionally inspired. The privately-owned Olive Press has been transformed into a lounge area for guests, with comfy armchairs and sofas, books and magazines. The Kapsaliana Village Restaurant & Café serves delicious meals and drinks by the fireplace or on the outside terrace. You’ll need a car to reach the hotel. Surrounded by wild country it’s an ideal area for hiking and just 10 minutes from the Eleftherna Archaeological Museum.
