  • The visit is really trivial. Do not transmit any enthusiasm and turns out to be suoerficiale. Also the tasting is left totally in the hands of the learner resulting in lack of interest.

  • Great concept but not translation French, not easy to understand the technical terms of plants in English with children... as a result no guided tour. That's too bad.

  • This simple and modest place was a nice experience. Although it has a touristic atmosphere their warm hospitality combined with high quality products made it a worthy visit.  more »

  • Awesome cozy place. Not only you can get a tour with lots of interesting info, but also try for free almost every single product they make, like different olives and olive oil, olive pate, honey and sweet fruit preserves, shots of raki (grape "moonshine"), etc. Some of these have exquisite taste. Prices very reasonable, in fact, given the high and organic quality of the products, I'd even say prices are less expensive than they should be. Additional "perks" for extra pay: pottery lessons and cooking lessons. If interested, reserve beforehand - we missed pottery for my wife because we didn't. Staff is very friendly, helpful and at the same time not intrusive or pushy at all. Overall, great experience. Highly recommend.
  • Great place to go, they have cooking classes, will give you a tour of the farm explaining how they press the oluve oil, make the wine and the raki, and about their honey. Everything is organic and done by the traditional methods as much as possible. Worth a visit!
  • Charming little outdoor museum of traditional Cretan craft and agriculture - olive oil, wine, pottery, etc., set around a 19th century olive press, which still is used to produce their "handmade" olive oil. An olive grove, herb garden and some animals. We chose the 1.5 € free-stroll option (there is also a 5€ guided tour), ending in the great museum shop with their own olive products, sun dried tomatoes, wine, raki, etc. - all with free sampling. Very friendly staff. Apparently, they offer a variety of activities as well, e.g. cooking and pottery classes, but there were no such activities going on when we were there.
  • Really nice place with alot of olive and herb history from crete with extremly freindly staff Did the pottery curse with the children Must visit
  • Nice place, kind people. Minus 1 star for high prices and small territory - not much to observe...
