Hello!We are a family of beekeepers ,located in Crete .Our story starts back in 1982 when a young mathematician (our father) bought his first hive as a new hobby “a moment is enough”. The hobby had become obsessive! Since then, the bees have increased to hundreds hives in numerous bee yards across Crete, producing many different types of monofloral honeys. Nowadays the legacy continues as the next generation ,Yianni & Elena continue the excellence in honey production by implementing fresh ideas. Me as an agronomist and my sister as honey expert ,we will create a mind-expanding life experience.

Yiannis was a really great and experienced Beekeeper, he showed us his passion and let us try the experience of checking the the bees and opening the boxes by ourselves, at the end we tasted diferent kinds of honey and even bought a few to take back home. Really great experience, I RECOMMEND!

Eye opening experience, Yanni is a third generation bee keeper with wide knowledge and passion for honey. I felt very safe and discovered so many things about bees and the honey. Once you try his honey you will be hooked!

Yanni is very nice and he told us everything he knew about bees and how they work. He explained what the different bees do and how they help the queen survive and make a lot of honey. We also had a very good honey tasting where he showed us how the different flowers affect the honey. I strongly recommend this to people who want to extent their knowledge about bees, and to people who like honey!!!

This experience was very remarkable and eye-opening. We were touring Crete for a week and stumbled upon this interesting activity. Crete is famous for its honey and olive groves which makes this experience one of its kind. I totally recommend it if you're there on vacation

Lovely experience if you’re visiting Crete, Yianni was really knowledgable and friendly. The location was very sweet. We got to see a new bee hatching which was amazing. The honeys we tried were lovely and I highly recommend purchasing some.
