Vad du kommer att göra

The tour takes place in an organically certified, bio-diversified farm with a stunning view to the Libyan Sea. We will start our tour by discovering the climate and geological conditions that gave rise to the unique Cretan ecosystem. How it affected the flora and what does this mean for us. We'll go through the various endemic plants and their properties. We will then discover the life of bees and their products and how people used them. We'll take a step back, thousands of years, to experience how people back in the Minoan age were practicing bee-keeping.

Depending on the season we are going to have a honeycomb cut and taste fresh honey. We will discover how we can use bee-offered ingredients and create everyday products for well-being like natural skincare and propolis tinctures or essential oils.

In the meanwhile, we will enjoy some freshly made organic tea locally sourced as well as some delicious seasonal snacks.
Ansonsten zu beachten
If you would like to check the bees closely it would be ideal to wear long trousers/tops.
Purchases of Althaea products available for you or for gifts.
The tour can be flexible based on your interests

It was a very interesting experience! A beautiful garden with all the endemic plants of Crete! If you are interested by the aromatic herbs (used as ingredients in cooking, in the preparation of teas and as medicines, like thyme, sage, mountain tea... ) it’s the best place to learn more about them! We discovered also the minoan hives and shared some delicious food with the owners! I think they are the perfect example of the traditional cretan lifestyle ;) NB: You can buy their products at the end: olive oil, honey, cosmetic products, soap...

Das war eine wirklich sehr tolle Erfahrung für mich und meine 9 jährige Tochter. Die minoische Haltung der Bienen war super interessant und Yiota und Stefos sind ein tolles Paar. Mit viel Liebe und Detailverliebtsheit haben sie sich diesen einzigartigen Ort geschaffen. Wir fühlen uns geehrt hier neues Wissen über Kräuter und hochwertige Produkte erfahren und beste Landküche gespeist zu haben. Alles selbst gemacht. Bio und mit viel Liebe und Ruhe. Besser geht es nicht. Danke.

Very friendly and genuine couple who care about the land and are happy to share their knowledge with you. Panayiota happily changed the times to work around our schedule. She also had small tapas freshly made in her kitchen and cool herbal tea for us to enjoy as we sat and conversed with the family. A real Greek afternoon. Highly recommend!

It starts with driving up into the mountains, the scenery is breathtaking . You drive into a meticulously kept orchard and garden amongst rocks and boulders. Stefanos greets us and we soon learn about his passion and expertise about herbs and plants. How each one has special properties. He then demonstrates the process to distill essential oil. All this is very interesting but the conversation that ensues is simulating and timely. Yiota served us delicious Cretan goodies and a huge bowl of pomegranates. We went into the workshop and the shop. Put on our beekeeper garb and Stefanos patiently explained beekeeping . He had the modern boxes and showed us the traditional Minoian way. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon and delighted in making new friends. I need to add that Yiota design sense and expertise in her own right adds to the product and the delights on the property

I have thoroughly appreciated this experience which was one of the best I had in Crete. Yiota and Stefos are people that are making a difference in this world by making it a better place through their organic farm and the love they have for bees. Their organic products are of outstanding quality and I would have brought back to Canada a case load of them if I was not constrained by place in my backpack and the weight i can physically carry. I strongly encourage you to visit them. Crete at his best in my view. Yiota and Stefos thank you for your hospitality, your kindness and the treat both at the farm and for the road. It was simply delicious.
