A romantic getaway in the old town with sumptuous Venetian touches
Housed in a three-story stone pink building in the heart of Rethymno’s old town, the Casa Vitae hotel is accessed through a passageway decorated with hand painted murals. The hotel was built in the 16th century for a Venetian nobleman and offers tourists a different vacation experience from the usual — one steeped in history. Guests can have breakfast in the hotel’s lushly landscaped Venetian courtyard. The hotel is ideally situated for local exploration.
3 Reasons To Stay:
  • Historic setting in the heart of Rethymno's old town
  • Bed canopies and murals offer a romantic setting for a vacation
  • Breakfast in the beautiful Venetian courtyard
Casa Vitae Rooms
Rooms at the Casa Vitae Hotel reflect the romance and elegance of 16th-century nobility, with all of the conveniences of the modern day. There are just eight suites and rooms in the main building, with exposed stonework, tiled floors, and wood ceilings combining to create a stately atmosphere. Wrought iron or solid wood beds provide a comfortable place to sleep while canopies or soft drapes add a romantic touch. Bathrooms feature murals and other dramatic touches such as gilt style mirrors and mosaic tiles, and are equipped with a bath (and in some rooms, a Jacuzzi). Amenities include air conditioning, satellite TV, free Wi-Fi, and coffee and tea making facilities. Three additional rooms are available at an annex building.

What a find!

From our initial welcome experience of beverages in the courtyard, amazing breakfasts, and the courteous staff's attention to meeting our needs, I would highly recommend Casa Vitae. We enjoyed it and our experience in Rethymnon so much that we extended our stay there.

A Picture Perfect Stay

An amazing beautifully classic venetian style hotel. The staff, Maria was simply wonderful! The breakfast was delicious, with plenty of options and tasty delights. The room was clean and beautifully decorated. This hotel is in a great location for walking access to everything in the city. We can not wait to return and stay again!
