About our Cretan Neighbourhood…
At each of Cressa Ghitonia’s 15 houses, suites, studios or rooms you will have the opportunity to travel back in time, but still benefit from all modern comforts. Each-and-every-one of our rooms is truly unique, with historical value, and it has maintained its heritage.
In the past centuries, most of these properties where the permanent residences of the people of the village of Sfaka or were used by them for their every day activities. One of the houses used to be a winepress, in another the Sfakans used to produce olive oil, and in a third they made and repaired shoes. Every room has maintained its original layout depending on the property’s former use.
In Cressa Ghitonia the architecture and the redevelopment is only half of the Hotel’s experience… What is most important here is that you have the opportunity to live in and become part of a friendly Neighbourhood, to take walks around the beautiful paths and renowned gorges, to enjoy the original Cretan cuisine and the virgin olive-oil at the panoramic restaurant of the Hotel overlooking the Aegean Sea and the numerous mountains, or to just relax under the Cretan sun, by the swimming pool area or at your terrace.
You can experience a rejuvenating massage of salt-grains and olive oil at the SPA area from the specialized personnel. At the end of the day, a glass of raki or Cretan wine will accompany you as you gaze at the unique Greek sunset…
In this Neighbourhood you will experience a real vacation that will remain engraved in your memory for years to come. Welcome to Cressa Ghitonia!
