An opportunity to return to the traditional Cretan way life, in a picturesque, untouched village of Eastern Crete, while still benefiting from all modern luxuries”

Best New Small Hotel in Europe, 2011 by CNBC International Hotel Awards, in association with Bloomberg Television

Cressa Ghitonia has been awarded four times in the International Hotel & Property Awards (in association with CNBC and Bloomberg Television) for the quality of its construction and design.

It is one of the places that you “have to see” if you are in Crete!

Cressa Ghitonia is a designated “Traditional Cretan Neighbourhood” of the 1800’s that has been fully reconstructed while maintaining all of its original elements.

It is located in the highest part of the mountainous village of Sfaka, just 6 km from one of the beaches of the fish-village of Mochlos and other neighbouring attractions.

Cressa Ghitonia has 15 truly unique houses, suites, studios and rooms.

The Cressa Ghitonia SPA, which reminds the visitor of an actual cave, offers a great variety of excellent services, including customized body treatments, beauty therapies, massages, but also access to a Sauna, a Jacuzzi and a Hammam.

At the Cressa Iris Restaurant you will have the opportunity to taste an awakening combination of Cretan and other Greek dishes, from the hands of our Chef.

Here you will have the opportunity to travel back in time, but still benefit from all modern comforts…!
