Discover the Cretan lifestyle as you visit this traditional farm, with an olive oil mill. Begin your outing by visiting a farm in Sissi Village. Head to an 18th-century olive oil mill and learn about the award-winning mill's family history. Then head to a honey workshop and see the local honey-making process and learn about bees' activities. Taste the famous alcoholic beverage called Raki. Learn more about how it is produced and discover the ritual deeply rooted in Cretan Culture. Delight in learning about homemade Olive Oil soap and hearing about its health benefits for the skin. Have the chance to purchase high-quality local produce directly from the seller after tasting or learning about them. Later on, begin your gastronomical adventure with a wine tasting. Sip on outstanding wines from local Cretan grape varieties and taste distinct flavors. Learn all about the wine's production, which dates back to the ancient Minoan Civilization. Tuck into a delicious homemade Cretan meal cooked in a wood-fired oven. Enjoy seasonal greens, fava beans, and salad from the owner's garden accompanied by a wide variety of appetizers and french fries.
