Metohi Kindelis dating back from the late Venetian period, was one of the few farms that in those days supplied the nearby town of Chania with fruit and vegetables. Today, the farm is still flourishing, producing a variety of fruit, mainly strawberries,tangerines, oranges, avocados, apricots, pears, berries, peaches etc, all at a limited quantity. Our products are certified by DIO, that is the official inspection body in Greece for organic agriculture.
A few years ago, the owner refurbished two parts of the old main building and converted them into two independent guesthouses. This task demanded a great deal of personal commitment and hard work coupled to imaginative care so that changes would not alter the character and style of the original structure and the surroundings. The result is a retreat which provides relaxation and peace to the visitor seeking to escape from his city life.
Stepping into Metohi Kindelis is like entering another world. The property has several charming exterior communal areas for use by the guests, the most impressive being the inner central courtyard. Paved with large pebbles and surrounded by the small rooms that used to be the workers’ residences, it is a perfect introduction to the atmosphere of the farmhouse and the guesthouses.
As part of our effort to offer our guests the very best of Crete, we are glad to introduce the service of a daily breakfast basket, specially catered to include a variety of seasonal fruit, organically produced in our farm, and a rich selection of other goods – all sourced locally and produced in a traditional and environment-friendly way. Vegeterians are always more than welcome and a ‘green’ breakfast is also available . Metohi Kindelis is located 3km southwest from the town of Chania and 5km from the nearest beaches. It is a truly special place for a romantic, relaxing holiday away from the tourist crowds.
