ROMANTIC GRECIAN HIDEAWAY.
Kinsterna Hotel & Spa is a charming hidden gem in the hills above the village of Monemvasia on the Peloponnese. The village is known for Kastro Monemvasia – a living part of Greek history from medieval times. The hotel in itself is quite rustic and peaceful. The superb Mansion style historical building is set on a hillside with views of the blue Aegean, 10 minutes drive from the sea and 10 minutes walk from the village of Agios Stefanos. It is new to our Select Collection.
A small property with only 27 rooms and suites, most with views of the Aegean or the gardens. The rooms are very special and charming; every one is different as the property has been restored in the exact style of times gone by - the Byzantine era. There are lots of stairs, so it is not suitable for people with leg problems or who use a wheel chair.
The Kinsterna Suites (number 39 very cozy and authentic, and number 43 very large) are our favourites, but we also like the Junior Suites, which are perfect for couples.
