Welcome to Casa Vitae Hotel

Unique in its historical Venetian style!.


asa Vitae Hotel is a renovated old Venetian castle house. It was built in the  late 16th, early 17th century and there is speculation that it was the residence of a nobleman – maybe even the Venetian govenor. It is located in the old city of Rethynmo, thus it is just 3 minutes’ walk from the museums, the Venetian fortress, the Venetian harbor, the shops, the restaurants, the cafes, and all other entertainment venues.

Unique in its style, Casa Vitae Hotel is one of the very few detached buildings in the old town with a Venetian courtyard for the guests to relax and enjoy their breakfast or drinks.  The eight fully renovated luxurious suites maintain the historical Venetian style of their epoch  and are airy and spacious, all facing to the hotel’s courtyard.

In this hotel, history tends to combine the Venetian with the Ottoman architecture. Yet, the hotel is fully equipped to provide the visitor with an ambient environment that merges the romance of the Venetian era together with the picturesqueness of Crete and the comforts of our modern times.
