We believe in experiencing and feeling the authentic vibes of every place. We have been born and bred in the South Crete (in Messara Plain) for more than three generations. So, the Cretan lifestyle & diet runs in our veins. Along with my grandmother & my mother, we would love to immerse you in Cretan culture and spirit! We would love to do that by showing you how we used to cultivate olive groves and how we do now, how you can see if an olive oil is extra virgin or not, how we harvest olive oils. Moreover we will guide you in our family's greenhouses and show you how we cultivate them. And the best part come in the end...We will have a traditional picnic under a big olive tree, where my grandma will show you how we make cheese, you will have the chance to taste warm mizithra (kind of cheese) and a variety of local meze and raki! All in all, we want to make you feel like a local Cretan. Smell, taste & feel our tradition, through a unique food tour experience!

Presentation of folk musical instruments

Presentation of folk musical instruments

star-5
1
A unique place in the Cretan culture and the musical tradition of Crete, hold its traditional musical instruments. The roots of some musical instruments in Crete are lost in the depths of the ages. In the archaeological excavations of Knossos and Phaistos, representations of sculptures, ceramics and painting are depicted by musicians and dancers who point to the present day, where the lyre plays in the middle and the dancers dance around it cyclically. The ancient Cretes used to play the ancient lyre, as shown by representations in frescoes and seals. The presentation of folk instruments lasts for 1,5 hour and after a 1 hour break we continue with a nice evening in Dalabelos Estate Restaurant where we play music with the instruments we presented earlier with treats, refreshments, raki and other products of the estate.
