Kinsterna Hotel & Spa

Monemvasia, Peloponnese

Monemvasia in the Southeastern Peloponnese region is one of Greece’s most romantic destinations and a truly unique stay at the high-end Kinsterna Hotel. There is a dreamy, magical place hiding in the perfect valley in Southern Greece among idyllic vineyards, olive groves and citrus trees, just minutes away from the blue Mediterranean. The Kinsterna Boutique Hotel, once an impressive mansion and estate dating from Ottoman and Venetian times, has carefully been returned to its former glory with an air of luxury.
