Butique Suites in Chora
Few Words about the Location
A heritage residence at the foot of the Castle
Chora is a Byzantine, traditional settlement, protected by the Greek Ministry of Culture and the Authority for Byzantine Antiquities. It is the capital of Kythera, situated in the southern part of the island, just 2.5 km from the sea, overlooking Kapsali, the fishing village.
Chora’s Castle or "Fortezza" is the most characteristic monument on Kythera. It was built in the 13th century when Kythera was dominated by the Venetians. It is also called the "Eye of Crete" due to its strategic position allowing simultaneous observation of ships on three seas – the Ionian, Aegean and Cretan.
The Mansion is at the heart of Chora, the capital of Kythera. This heritage mansion, with origins dating to the late Venetian period and with its unique architectural features, is definitely one of the most distinctive and impressive in the village. It provides a spacious, exclusive and private environment to discerning travelers, allowing them to absorb Chora’s centuries of heritage while enjoying modern amenities and absolute privacy.
