GENTILINI RETREAT AND HOUSE
Twenty acres of ancient olive grove for the sole enjoyment of a maximum twelve guests. A place to unwind, read, converse, take a dip in the sizeable swimming pool, paint, meditate - or, because of the estate's central location, explore the stunning beauty of the island in easy stages.
Six double rooms, each with private entrance and ample outside space, are spread out in two groups over the estate. All are individually furnished with quiet sophistication, blending period and modern furniture, to echo a relaxed environment in size, comfort and style.
Guests have privileged access to Gentilini Winery and the recently renovated Gentilini House in Argostoli which is not open to the general public. This house, with its paintings, furniture and rare books, is now the only reminder of the island’s urban architecture that represents a society and grace that have now been eclipsed.
We advise you to stay in the idyllic setting of the Gentilini Retreat. Drop your cases in your balconied bedroom facing the vines and in the shadow of olive trees, and make a beeline for the tempting swimming pool. Night-time is absolutely peaceful and the clear sky twinkles with stars. Enjoy a glass of Moscato and take a deep breath of the valley air imbued with the fragrances of thyme, lavender and fig trees!
