In the 25 acres of the mansion’s estate, which has been painstakingly restored into a 5* boutique hotel, we share a unique experience created by the combination of nature and tradition. With roots in the Byzantine, Ottoman and Venetian eras, crowned by olive trees, vineyards and citrus trees, Kinsterna Hotel overlooks the magnificent view of the castle of Monemvasia. In one of the most historic locations in Greece, the luxury boutique hotel has been developed in the “traces” of a richly fortified complex that bears all the beauty and simplicity that characterise the local architecture –with privileged views of the mountains and the endless blue of the Aegean Sea, the lovingly and superbly restored mansion offers unique rooms & suites, autonomous residences and pool villas that blend magically into the surrounding estate. And we stand by proudly presenting you with an architectural dialogue that interweaves aesthetic simplicity with the philosophy of self-sufficiency and autonomy – characteristics that have earned us important international distinctions.
Experience Our Diversity
Kinsterna experiences feature a variety of activities including tour of the mansion, hiking through the vineyards, horse riding or a donkey ride, cycling on the estate, wine tasting, bread baking at the mansion’s old stone oven, cooking classes, homemade soap and candle making, private boat tours around the Rock of the medieval castle-town and nearby secluded beaches or even fishing!
Our guests have also the opportunity to participate in seasonal activities, which are associated with the estate, such as the grape harvest or grape crushing to produce a Greek spirit ‘tsipouro’, and picking of olives to produce extra virgin olive oil.
From our land to your table
Simple and delicate flavours that result from the combination of raw materials of exceptional quality, invite us to indulge in the Mediterranean delights of Greek cuisine. In perfect harmony with our own wines, the dishes served both around the Byzantine cistern (in the award-winning, homonymous restaurant “sterna”, with fine dining proposals) and under the shade of the trees in the tavern “linos” (with food simmered in the wood-fired oven) and the all-day restaurant “mouries”, guarantee the awakening of the senses in a gastronomic experience of getting to know the local flavours.
Our aim is, through the acquaintance with the products of the Laconian land, to connect people with nature and familiarise them with the gastronomic history of the region of Laconia. Together, we celebrate the gifts of nature and embrace all that it teaches us.
Explore Our Region
Whether you just want to relax and enjoy the Mediterranean tranquility or immerse yourself in the surrounding history, culture and nature, Kinsterna Hotel is the perfect year-round getaway. The castle-town of Monemvasia, the famous beach of Simos at Elafonisos island, the boat ride to secluded beaches, the southernmost natural fjord in Europe, Gerakas, the Ancient sunken city of Pavlopetri, the Kastania Cave or the Byzantine churches of the area, are just a few of the many unique options for discovery.
