  • Description


    We are developing a small eco herb farm on Crete, Greece. If you like nature, plants and gardening, you are welcome to our land. We are simple, friendly family, living on the land periodically. You are welcome to experience simple tasks in a peaceful and beautiful surrounding of nature. We offer accommodation in wooden dome if avaliable. We offer a tent in case domes are booked, Basic food we provide (olive oil, dry bread, pasta, legumes, fruites, and vegetables) but be aware that you have to cook for urselves in the special kitchen place. We strongly advice you to rent a car or motorbike for basic transportation needs in the area or going to the seaside, as the plot is more than 2 Km from the nearest village and 8Km to the closest beach.
