Travelling to Crete and staying in Crete is an all senses experience, but taste is a bit more special than the others. The aromatic herbs and wild greens, the cheeses, the rich honey, the flavourful olive oil and the wine form the basis of the miracle that is known as the Cretan cooking. You can taste unique dishes from fusion hotel restaurants to local “kafenia” at the most remote Chania village. However, what can be better than hands-on cooking classes and wonderful foodie tours around Chania. But, if you refuse to leave your private pool, you can taste Crete at the privacy of your villa.
Crete has been on the wine map lately, with many loyal fans. Some of the best and beautiful wineries can be found in Chania.
You can watch all the steps of winemaking, you will learn how to pair food and wine like a pro and enjoy a light meal with your favorite wine at the end of the tour. If you do not get car sick and would like to combine wine tasting with beautiful landscapes and excellent guides, we can arrange a Jeep tour for you.
Save a spot for a unique hands-on experience next to a local experienced cook and learn how to make your favorite local dishes prepared only with fresh and local ingredients, and take a piece of Crete back with you!
