Free of the visitor traffic one might encounter in spring or summer, the historic castle-town of Monemvasia, in the southeastern Peloponnese, remains a well-kept winter destination secret among Greeks who want to escape urbanity for a leisurely weekend, or for the festive holiday season.
At the Kinsterna Hotel & Spa, which is actually a few kilometers from the actual town, the vibe is all about laidback yet luxe agritourism. Over the Christmas and New Year period, guests can relish refined farm-to-table cuisine served at Kinsterna Restaurant crafted with ingredients, that include Greek truffle and sweet Malvasia wine, sourced from the hotel’s own estate, local farmers and small-scale producers.
Romantic suites with roaring fireplaces and Kinsterna’s fabulous spa make the resort perfect for couples, while families and friends can explore the atmospheric town of Monemvasia, once known to the English as Malmsey, which has inspired poets, writers and artists for centuries.
Kinsterna Hotel & Spa is offering a special Christmas & New Year’s Eve package. For further information, press here.
