The wine maker Boutari (one of my personal favorites) has opened up a new hotel, located in the vineyard on the island of Crete. Scalani Hills is part of the ‘Aria Hotels’ chain and is situated just outside of Heraklion on the Northern side, close to the town of Scalani.
There are only 3 luxury residences (named after grape varieties) to choose from that have been renovated from the old estate, that is centuries old. They are available to book for private or business events and are perfect for a small group of friends looking to explore the area. With Ancient Knossos less than 5 kilometres away and the Boutaris wines to choose from during your stay (including rare vintages grown in the vineyard), this is definitely a place to visit.
