    It is worthwhile to visit the farm. You will see many animals and you will have the opportunity to taisete. Business people are very hospitable and with great pleasure I welcome you.

    Very nice hidden facility. We were greeted very warmly. Very unobtrusive. The trip with the donkeys was accompanied lovingly. Prices are alright. Someone's doing his thing with heart. No mass processing.

    With children it is necessary to drive here. In addition to the donkeys and goats here still have ponies, peacocks, Guinea pigs and other animals. We have ticket was taxi shuttle for the entire family (perhaps because the end of the season), it includes food for donkeys. Ride worth 15 euros for half an hour. In tripadvisor point worth incorrectly-the farm is 1 km for Potamesom, look at pointers.

    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.

    Nice place, kind people. Minus 1 star for high prices and small territory - not much to observe...
