Delving deep into Cretan tradition, Agreco, a fairytale traditional farm, has revived centuries-old organic farming practices in a unique expression of Greek ‘philoxenia’, or hospitality. This privately owned 40,000-sq estate is an innovative display of environmentally friendly methods for traditional and modern cultivation and breeding.
The estate, a replica of 17th century lodge, features a traditional olive press, a flour water mill, a wine press and a giant vat for grape crushing. The complex includes a church, a village square and store. The farm highlight is the mini-zoo!
Guests can experience traditional Cretan life by participating in farm activities, from baking bread and making cheese to pressing grapes or olives and crushing wheat at the antique stone flour mill. Farm tours offered on weekday evenings, guide guests around the estate.
Everything grown on the farm ends up in the kitchen, where Agreco’s chef prepares the traditional Cretan dishes featured on the Taverna menu.
Take home farm-produced products including organic olive oil, wine, raki, olives, honey herbs and the new range of fragrances & body care products.
