Yearning to see how the locals live on Crete? Get the opportunity to travel up into the lush hills of Lasithi, explore the village of Avdou and Krasi, and visit a working Shepard on his farm. Experience a way of life that's remained the same for thousands of years as you make cheese with your bare hands. Enjoy the simple life as you learn the art of traditional cheese making. Relax at the Shepard's personal hideaway that boosts panoramic views of the villages and cliffs below. Breathe the crisp mountain air that's lightly infused with thyme and sage and truly understand why Crete is known as "the island of herbs". Marvel at the gorgeous sunset as you enjoy an organic gourmet meal prepared just for you. Feast on traditional homemade dishes perfectly paired with some of the best wines on the island. Taste authentic home-cooking with skoufikta, dolmades, tzatziki, greek salads, and fresh cheese from the Shepard. And lastly, dance, sing, or simply lounge as you listen to live Cretan music in this magical mountaintop location. For 2 guests the music will be traditional songs by the shepard from his handcrafted flute. For 3+ guests, the music will be an authentic live band.
Il tuo host
Growing up on the island of Crete, I was taught from an early age the importance of learning the history of my land. I've studied the Ancients, harvested olives, learned woodworking, cultivated my own food, and spent time gaining wisdom from my elders. My greatest passion is simply cooking gourmet farm-to-table dishes while enjoying time with family, friends, and amazing people. That why I turned my passion into my trade. I want people to experience the real Cretan life, the one that I grew up in.
