Kinsterna Hotel - Monemvasia

We invite you to travel to the southernmost tip of continental Europe, to historic Monemvasia, which is ranked among the top 10 monuments in Greece (TripAdvisor, Traveller's Choice Awards 2018). Here you can enjoy the unique hospitality of the award-winning Kinsterna Hotel and explore all the attractions and sandy beaches of this amazing region, including breathtakingly beautiful Simos beach on Elafonissos, which was voted the 11th best beach in Europe (TripAdvisor, Traveller's Choice Awards, 2018).

The Kinsterna is a Byzantine mansion which has been restored to its original glory with tremendous respect for its historical, cultural and architectural heritage - and which now forms a comprehensive settlement comprising the manor house and adjoining houses. At the same time, the owners have also set out to restore the estate's rich natural environment, including the productivity of its agricultural land and gardens so that the mansion can once again be self-sustaining. Today, the Kinsterna produces its own wine, extra-virgin olive oil and table olives, tsipouro (traditional Greek spirits), bread, marmalade and other fruit preserves, soap and much more.

The mansion estate, 25 acres in size, is known throughout the region for: its gardens; age-old olive orchards featuring the Athinolia variety and containing many olive trees over 500 years old; an orange grove with renowned Monemvasia oranges; flowering plants and herb gardens; impressive stands of eucalyptus trees and towering cypresses - as well as its privately owned vineyards. Throughout the entire year, Kinsterna organizes historical, cultural and athletic events and activities, which are intimately connected to the estate and specially designed for visitors who wish to learn more about the mansion's region and history.

Room Descriptions

Double Room

The elegant double rooms, scattered throughout the estate complex, are gracious and welcoming.


Byzantine Suite

Byzantium would have been proud to lend its name to these impressive suites, whose Byzantine domes and stone arches have inspired many of the manor’s guests with wonder and envy. All of these suites offer exterior verandas with lush greenery, where you can relax with a book from the manor’s library or enjoy a cup of hot coffee in the morning, surrounded by flowers, trees and birdsong.


Junior Suite

These suites will surprise you with their beauty and will lead you into a world of timeless architectural splendor. Several Junior Suites are located on the ground floor with lushly planted private verandas where you can enjoy a sumptuous breakfast with your tea or coffee. And in one of these suites the cistern’s drain opening has been preserved, complete with stalactites. It was at this point (Junior Suite 14) where the outflow of water for the estate’s irrigation was controlled.


Premium Residence

If you have ever fantasized about vacationing in a light-filled open-plan residence with views of blooming flower gardens and the Aegean Sea in the background, this is your chance to live the dream. The Premium Residences which are located on the upper floor have verandas, while those located on the ground floor have their own private courtyards among the estate’s flowering gardens.


Kinsterna Suite

You are sure to appreciate your stay in the Kinsterna Suites, which offer an amazing view of the Aegean Sea and the estate’s private vineyards, while most of the suites have balconies. One of these suites is particularly interesting, thanks to its finely carved old fireplace and a balcony built above the old wine press, where the grapes were most likely trodden for wine, and the must was gathered for other uses. The mansion’s defensive cannon was also positioned here (Kinsterna Suite 39).


Deluxe Residence

Every Deluxe Residence is spacious enough to accommodate your family or even a group of friends and so completely equipped and comfortably furnished that you are guaranteed a unique experience of true hospitality. All of our Deluxe Residences feature an extremely comfortable bedroom with king-size bed and marble bathrooms with rare hand-made tiles, while most of them offer a fireplace, coffee/tea station at the atmospheric sitting room with dining table and separate W.C.


Kinsterna Pool Villa

Immerse yourself in a luxurious world combining modern comforts with traditional local architecture. Representing the latest addition to the Kinsterna complex of luxury accommodations, these two fabulous villas with their pools and privacy will surely exceed all your expectations. Each villa offers two separate levels and is enveloped by the peace and serenity provided by the estate’s gardens, next to a running stream of fresh water fed by Kinsterna’s own springs. The villas are supplied with hi-tech amenities and furnished in a clean, modern style.
