    If you or your kids didn’t have the chance to experience the farm life with the grand parents than it is a must to go. Our daughter was so exited to see the goats and sheeps and to prepare de cheese. She really enjoy it! For me and my husband was a travel in the past when we were kids and we were spending our summer holidays with the grand parents at the farm.

    Must Do!

    Rated 5 out of 5

    A very authentic experience in the island of naxos. Our tour lasted 2 hours. My husband and I arrived in the farm where we were greeted by Mr Giannis and Mrs Anna and their son George. We started by walking around the farm and saw the different vegetable and fruit trees, the vineyards, the place where they make traditionally the wine. We then saw the area where the sheep and goat come, we saw the 2 pigs and the chickens. We then proceeded to see the inside of the small house where Giannis grandpa lived and we looked at all the different tools they used in the past. Giannis then started showing us the cheese making process and we were also involved in that which was amazing. We then went to the cheese room and saw the cheese which was there and left aging. At last we sat down in an outdoor dinning table and they brought us the 2 different types of cheese alongside spanakopita olives tzatziki breadsticks and wine! The tour was exactly what we were looking for , it was really nice to get a taste of what Giannis and Anna everyday life in the farm is and how they make everything there the traditional way ! Thank you so much for having us!

    Amazing experience!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5

    We absolutely loved visiting this farm and getting to know the wonderful family who runs it. I would highly recommend this experience not only to see a true fully functional (and huge) farm, but also getting to know more about their daily life, how to make cheese, and of course being able to taste it! It was so much fun and we loved talking with Katerina and her father-in-law!!!
