At Cressa Ghitonia, each property is different. Converted from a former village, some were artisan dwellings, others were stores and shops. Together, they make for a fascinating boutique hotel complex which has received many international awards for the careful and sensitive restoration of this community. All contain original features dating from the 1800s which preserve the historical integrity of this tiny village.
Anyone looking for modern facilities and amenities – such as our swimming pool, spa, restaurant and bar – in the sun-drenched corner of the Mediterranean need look no further. Cressa Ghitonia, because of its size and layout, suits couples and families alike in a stupendous location overlooking the jewel-like Aegean Sea.
