Vad du kommer att göra

The tour takes place in an organically certified, bio-diversified farm with a stunning view of the Libyan Sea. We will start our tour by discovering the climate and geological conditions that gave rise to the unique Cretan ecosystem. We will briefly discover the life of bees and their products and how people used them.

We are going to focus on the lifecycle of beeswax and its use. From its formation inside the hive and storing the precious honey to how we can form wax bars and craft traditional candles.

In the meanwhile, we will enjoy some freshly made organic tea locally sourced as well as some delicious seasonal snacks.

What a wonderful experience for our family. Brilliant communication from the outset. This is a new workshop and I’m so pleased we took part - we are staying in the lovely villa Lato just a 5 minute walk away. We have had a magical day, Stefanos and Panayiota are such kind hosts, they made us feel so very welcome. They are so knowledgeable and passionate. We had the opportunity to admire the stunning views whilst walking through the lavender, sage, oregano, rosemary and many Cretan herbs and trees smelling and tasting as appropriate. Stefanos taught us about and the of recommendations of the herbs. We were given bee keeper protective clothing to wear, our sons (11 and 8) loved this - we were taught about the hive and the wax whilst getting to see the bees up close (including the queen bee). Our sons helped cut the beeswax and we were shown how it is melted down. We were then served the most amazing tea, delicious Greek cheese pie, biscuits, breads and tomatoes, cheese, freshly picked fruit - everything homemade by Panayiota and her lovely daughter who we were lucky enough to meet alongside their adorable Grandson. We all loved making the traditional beeswax candles, supported by the expert Stefanos - he was so kind and patient with our sons. Panayiota made us the most beautiful bundle of candles decorated with the herbs from their land to take alongside the candles we made - we will treasure these as a reminder of an incredible day. Thank you!
