Kinsterna is an impressive mansion and sprawling estate that has been meticulously restored and returned to its former glory. Located on the southernmost tip of Europe, and boasting majestic views of Monemvasia, it’s surrounded by idyllic vineyards, olive trees and fruit orchards, while only being a few minutes away from the Aegean Sea.
Where & Why?
Located in the eastern Peloponnese, this unique hotel offers spectacular views of the medieval fortress town of Monemvasia. Bringing guests peace, serenity, and crisp, fresh air, here you can truly disconnect from the world and allow yourself to be immersed in rich history that surrounds you. If you are visiting during the warmer months, it’s just a five-minute drive down to the beach, or you can dive into the infinity pool which is filled with spring water flowing from the nearby mountain. There is also a spa with a traditional Ottoman hammam, water cabins, treatment rooms, and jacuzzis.
Style & Feel
Traditional, elegant, and charming, the space is warm and deeply peaceful, plus somewhat mysterious.
Food & Drinks
There is plenty of options at the hotel including Sterna, which is for fine dining and only open for dinner. All-day restaurant Mournies and Linos Taverna are great for lunch or dinner and you can eat the freshly made bread that comes straight out of the wood fire oven. Belvedere is great if you would like to sip on some tea or have an afternoon coffee with dessert, and there is also a Lobby and Pool Bar, which serve food, and the drinks are made with fresh ingredients grown on the estate.
The rooms scream history and each one has its own character. There is a Junior Suite, Byzantine Suite, Kinsterna Suite, Premium Residence, Deluxe Residence, and the Kinsterna Pool Villa.
Couples who wish to hike around the mansion, participate in wine tours, cooking classes, grape picking, or horse riding. It’s also great for families as there is a kids pool, petting zoo, bike riding for families, and a library for reading and playing board games. It’s also perfect for a girls’ getaway as you can enjoy the spa, wine tasting, bread making classes, harvesting, and gathering honey from the beehives.
