Our Family Farm

Meet our family

Cretan vibes is the brainchild of three generations – my grandma Urania, my mom Stella, and me, Marianna. Yet, our team extends beyond, encompassing the entire family! Today, our farm thrives under the care of the 3rd generation.

Our dream is to share the richness of Cretan culture and the virtues of the Cretan diet, offering a familial experience to our guests. We achieve this by providing a 100% hands-on cooking adventure and by guiding you through our family farm, unraveling the mysteries of extra virgin olive oil, Cretan vegetables, and herbs.

Our experiential tours are carefully crafted for those who are open to discovering and savoring authentic Cretan recipes passed down through generations. It’s an invitation for those who genuinely wish to immerse themselves in the authentic Cretan culture and way of living. 

Come join us, and together, let’s embark on a journey to uncover ‘The Simple Cretan Life’ with a touch of warmth and heritage!
