We will first go to the local cheese maker,where we we watch Yannis on duty...(Available : 01/11 to 14/06) or We start from the local Olive Oil factory where the specialist will demonstrate the olive oil production process...(Available : 15/06 to 30/10) Then we drive to the 14th century Byzantine church in the heart of a ravine...

Cretian bread and cheese is a delight but definitely not good for the waist line. Their bakeries bake fresh bread daily and you can have it straight from the oven. The cheese is available from the local supermarkets and is totally addictive, just add oil and olives ... and a bottle of vino - perfect picnic.

It was very interesting to see how the bread and the cheese were made, and the people there made us so welcome and invited us to taste all their products.
