Metohi Kindelis is a beautiful centuries-old farm in Crete, just outside Chania town in the north-western part of Crete.The property dates back from the late Venetian period, built somewhere before 1650. The farm developed its agricultural activity through the Ottoman times and was bought by our family in the end of the 19th century. During the 20th century the farm was producing fruits and vegetable renown in the town of Chania, succeeding generations, evolving to one of the most respected organic farms in Greece.
Separate parts of the main building of this estate have been restored with finesse and care, converted into three independent, truly atmospheric guest houses, with old world charm yet modern facilities and luxuries. The refurbishment project has retained the character and style of the original structure and the surroundings. The result is an eco-friendly lodge and one of the most charming and authentic boutique hotels in Crete. Each villa has a private pool and garden, a capacity for 2-4 guests and is carefully designed to feel like a holiday home with exquisite services. The unique architecture, sophisticated interiors and lush gardens will offer an ideal vacation, with moments of pure relaxation close to nature, with the bustling old town of Chania and its attractions almost at your doorstep.
Metohi Kindelis is a perfect destination for those seeking to experience Crete through its flavors, history and natural beauties beyond a traditional hotel in Crete. The farm is still today flourishing, producing a variety of fruit and is certified for organic agriculture. The surrounding fields are there for you to walk around, observe the cultivations and collect fresh fruit. The impressive inner central courtyard, paved with large pebbles and surrounded by the small rooms that used to be the workers’ residences, is a perfect introduction to the atmosphere of the estate. The botanical garden is an area created with devotion, for adults and kids to enjoy during their sojourn.
Metohi Kindelis is a great hideaway for a relaxing and restorative break but also an excellent base for getting around, go swimming, hiking, or enjoying the nightlife and atmosphere of the charming old town of Chania, that is a short drive away.
