  • This farm located above Tholos Beach, about 4 km from the village of Kavousi, specializes in organic horticulture. Very good phone contact with Serena, the owner of the premises. Welcome with a glass of lavender Rosemary herbal tea. Lavender stoechades, romarins, the Thymes, and especially the dictamne, plant endemic to the island, grow on steep terrain. Views of the sea, the beach and the Islands. Plants, and balms, massage oils and flavored salt pepper are also for sale. Overall a great experience.
