What you'll do

We believe that in order to really taste our island, it is not enough just to stay at our accommodation. We offer a unique experience exclusively for our guests and we challenge them to become little beekeepers.
At 1200 m altitude, the beehive of our family lies in the hinterland of Crete. You can learn about bees, see them closely and engage actively in their day-to-day care activities.
Transform yourself into beekeepers, use their tools and explore this magical society from which one of the most valuable foods for humans is produced.
With our own vehicle we take you, where our beehive lives, my father - an experienced beekeeper - will talk about bees, their way of reproduction, their everyday habits and at the same time you will enjoy the beautiful - authentic scenery.
We try to support our tradition, learn from our fathers and pass it on to our children, away from the usual tourist folklore practices.
