Description: Kinsterna HotelKinsterna Hotel enjoys a wonderful location overlooking the medieval fortress town of Monemvasia. Nestling in a lush hillside, it enjoys spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and the Aegean Sea.
Kinsterna Hotel has been lovingly and painstakingly restored from an historic mansion and estate, originally dating from Byzantine times. One of the most original features of this spectacular property is its ancient cistern. Water emerges from a spring under the property and is conducted into a river-like swimming pool with private relaxation areas and panoramic sea views. Surrounded by olive groves, citrus plantations and vineyards in its estate of 18 acres, Kinsterna Hotel provides luxurious accommodation in an exclusive, peaceful atmosphere, with all the amenities expected from a 5-star boutique property. Kinsterna also has a magnificent Spa, with a range of treatments and facilities, including Hammam, whirlpool and wet and dry treatment rooms.
In parallel, the estate revives all activities that took place in the past on the premises, so the mansion becomes independent and self-sufficient. Guests are welcome to explore the property and take part in a series of chic experiences, such as its seasonal agricultural activities, including olive harvesting and pressing, grape collection and wine and spirit production. Ideally located for exploring this spectacular part of the Peloponnese, Kinsterna Hotel is perfect for hiking, cycling, horse-riding, sailing and fishing.
