On a rural Laconian hillside, surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, overlooking the Agean Sea and Monemvasia, the Kinsterna is an utterly charming rural retreat perfectly placed to discover this finger of the Peloponnese.

The mansion itself mostly dates back to the 17th century, it’s floorplan hinting at a more ancient villa built here to take advantage of the spring waters that flows from the slope. Abandoned in the 1970s, it has since been beautifully restored using traditional methods and local materials.

27 unique rooms and suites have been crafted into the original building and some newer residences, many with wonderful original features such as Ottoman fireplaces, sea views and even private gardens.

The estate’s original activities, such as wine making and olive oil production, have also been revived. Together with bountiful gardens, a fabulous pool that is filled with spring water, food that celebrates the vernacular and employment of local staff, the Kinsterna’s commitment to self-sufficiency and sustainability is bearing fruit.

You can explore the grounds and beyond on hikes, horse rides and cycling tours, try wine, bake traditional bread and, if in the right season, join the grape harvest and make olive oil. There are a number of fine beaches nearby, ancient ruins to discover and fishing villages celebrated for their cuisine on the coast with fine spa to return to afterwards.
