  • Votan′â translates from Greek as herbs. This farm herbs, spices, teas. Shop in Agios Nikolaos. But the fields and mountain plantation in the village of Kavoussi, where we were in the jeep safari tour. And our guide told a lot. Herbs harvested from the mountains, and they grow in clean ecological conditions. Natural, grown in the wild natural conditions still romantic in my kitchen grocery. It's an interesting Crete, all recommend.
