About Casa Vitea

This charming boutique hotel is set within a converted 15th-century Venetian castle on a pedestrian-only street in the medieval old town of Rethymno just steps from shops and eateries, and a short drive from a long sandy beach and the historic Venetian harbor. Guests can look forward to a serene Old World atmosphere, an intimate experience and exceptional service.


Visitors to Crete looking for lots of character and charm in an intimate boutique property will find it here in the old town of Rethymno. Once a Venetian castle, built in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, it’s believed to have been the residence of a nobleman or perhaps a Venetian governor, and today, guests can expect to be treated like royalty with VIP service. One of its standout features is the lovely courtyard, a tranquil sunny spot with a koi pond and lots of greenery, along with a pomegranate tree and a shady trellis for relaxing and dining on the free daily breakfast that includes both cold and hot items like eggs, fresh fruit, cereals and breads. The rooms come with opulent décor, original stone walls and a private pool, while some include a balcony overlooking the courtyard too. For an extra spacious room, book one of the Junior Suites which also come with whirlpool baths and large sitting areas.


Located in old town Rethymno, a 5-minute walk to the beach and about a 75-minute-drive west of Heraklion and the Crete ferries.
