A Christmas getaway at the historic Kinsterna hotel

A Christmas getaway at the historic Kinsterna hotel

For a festive season seeped in history and adventure, in a magnificently restored hotel, look no further than Kinsterna restored mansion in Monemvasia. Picture breakfast under centuries-old olive trees, fragrant citrus orchards, horse-back riding through vineyards, gourmet meals crafted from home-grown produce, castles and dungeons waiting to be explored, and boat rides for that sense of freedom that only water can provide. Celebrate  Christmas and New Year’s Eve at Kinsterna for a transporting journey in time!

The open fireplace next to the Byzantine cistern adds to the fairytale aspect of the mansion.

If you haven’t visited Monemvasia yet, you’ll soon be seduced by the fortified city’s layered history whispering through its imposing walls. Monemvasia is so much more than a 300-metre high rock. Weaving through its rich Byzantine, Ottoman, Venetian and Greek history, its rugged beauty is enhanced by the mystery and simplicity of its 800 houses (some in advanced states of ruin) and by four of the 40 churches that once stood proudly in the Kastro. Kinsterna,  just 6 kilometres away, is a reflection of the area’s rich cosmopolitan heritage and the perfect base to explore the region.

What to expect at Kinsterna

Named after the Byzantine word for the age-old cistern around which it is built, and which, for centuries, has breathed life into the surrounding fertile land, towering trees, and olive groves, Kinsterna is an 18th-century Byzantine mansion that has been painstakingly restored to a contemporary design hotel. Spread across a sprawling 25 acres, Kinsterna produces its own oil, wine, olives, soap, fruit and vegetables, and is a sanctuary for the senses in more ways than one. The 50 rooms, suites and residences have been restored and designed to create a uniquely welcoming and warm atmosphere which blends with Monemvasia’s authentic character, and offer stunning views to the Aegean, the castle-city and the surrounding groves and vineyards. Not only does Kinsterna’s design encourage visitors to interpret the building’s history as a voyage through time, its spa offers transporting journeys of a different kind.

The Reveillon dinner on Christmas & New Year’s Eve is set out to create an unrivaled dining experience with local products of the Laconia region and fresh fruit and vegetables from the orchards of the Kinsterna estate. Traditional Greek fare and views of the surrounding hillsides and the Aegean Sea lend to the magic of a festive meal.
