TRAVEL INFORMATION
 

Delving deep into Cretan tradition, Agreco, a fairytale traditional farm, has revived centuries-old organic farming practices in a unique expression of Greek ‘philoxenia’, or hospitality. This privately owned 40,000-sq estate is an innovative display of environmentally friendly methods for traditional and modern cultivation and breeding.

 
The estate, a replica of 17th century lodge, features a traditional olive press, a flour water mill, a wine press and a giant vat for treading grapes. The complex includes a church, a village square and store. The farm highlight is the mini-zoo! Guests can experience traditional Cretan life by participating in farm activities, from baking bread and making cheese to pressing grapes or olives and crushing wheat at the antique stone flour mill. Farm tours offered on weekday evenings, guide guests around the estate.
 
Everything grown on the farm ends up in the kitchen, where Agreco’s chef prepares the traditional Cretan dishes featured on the Taverna menu. A large olive tree and vines wrapped around the wooden beams of the pergola shade the stone-laid terrace with the magnificent view of the Cretan coast. The farm is located in the province of Rethymnon next to the village Adele. It is 2 km from the sea and 7km east of Rethymno town.
