We spent 5 days in this FABULOUS place! it was a wonderful experience. Wonderful location, surrounded by nature, beautiful house, completely rebuilt as the houses of the past, cozy, relaxing, aesthetically stunning. Wonderful showers including one on a balcony overlooking the mountains and olive groves. Comfortable beds, very relaxing environment. There is the possibility of making coffee or tea in your room, and for breakfast you can move to a hotel in the center of the village that has one of the best breakfasts I've ever eaten! The hosts are wonderful people, kind, attentive, discreet, available. In the evening being able to stay by candlelight or oil lamps is a very special experience that does not take away any comfort at all from the experience indeed, increases the feeling of slowing down, rest, and relaxation!
the experience at the farm was also really beautiful and enriching as well as made human connections that will stay with us!
We will definitely be back!!!

Abbiamo passato 5 giorni in questo posto da FAVOLA! è stata un'esperienza meravigliosa. Posizione stupenda, immersa nella natura, casa stupenda, completamente ricostruita come le case di una volta, accogliente, rilassante, esteticamente stupenda. Docce meravigliose di cui una su di un balconcino vista montagne e uliveti. Letti comodi, ambiente davvero rilassante. c'è la possibilità di farsi il caffè o il the in stanza, e per la colazione ci si può spostare presso un hotel in centro al paesino che ha una delle colazioni più buone che abbia mai mangiato da sempre! Gli host sono persone stupende, gentili, attente, discrete, disponibilissime. La sera poter stare a lume di candela o alle lampade ad olio è un'esperienza davvero particolare che non toglie assolutamente nessun comfort all'esperienza anzi, aumenta la sensazione di rallentamento, riposo e relax!
l'esperienza alla fattoria anche è stata davvero bella e arricchente oltre che fatta di connessioni umane che rimarranno con noi!
Torneremo sicuramente!!!

We (6 people) stayed for 1 night at the farm. We were instantly amazed by the beautiful house. All the candles and oil lamps were lit and we got a nice tour first. There were 1 indoor and 2 outdoor showers with beautiful views. A small dinner was prepared in case we didn't want to drive to the village. The breakfast was very very good and special. Not the standard bread with Nutella.

This was such a treat. And in fact the highlight of our 18 days in Crete. We stayed at the farmhouse for two nights and also got to experience some amazing things. Food. Dancing. Banking and cooking.

Brilliant for anyone. Kids couples or grandparents

Hosted by a delightful family who give you a real insight into the lifestyle of Cretan farmers and how they have lived for many centuries.

There are goats (to milk if you wish),pigs,donkeys,sheep,a cow and a horse.

They are obviously passionate about what they do and they transmit their love of nature to you through a well polished programme that includes baking, dancing,eating a traditional Cretan lunch and trying their home produced Raki.

I would recommend for all ages.

We had a wonderful time with the lovely Kamihis family. Baking our own bread, making cheese, learning about the traditional Cretan way of living and enjoying a beautiful lunch is something we won't forget any time soon. There was so much food! It was all delicious and all came from the farm. We got to meet the animals and collect eggs as well. I can't recommend visiting the Kamihis Farm enough.

The passion to explain and demonstrate the rural traditions comes from Helena and Mickalis. What an amazing family! They live the self sufficiency eco dream. What an anti dote to the wrongs of the modern world where we have lost out connection to the land and our planet. You make bread with them, collect eggs, milk the goat, feed the pigs and cows. Children ride the donkey. You collect the herbs. Irrigate the land like Minoans. Then you have an amazing lunch with all you have collected. You are taught how to make cheese from the milk you have collected and then make filo pastries. The bread,wine,raki! Wow this was the most amazing meal in 5 visits to crete. An experience to treasure for life. Just take the road very slowly in your hire car. It is long and rough!!

We had been enjoying the hospitality of Kyria Katerina of Keramos studios at Zaros village over the last few years, along with the adventures in getting to know the rural life of Crete, as demonstrated at the Kamihis Farm by Michalis and Velina.

Each visit is an experience by itself! Homemade bread baked in wood fired 🔥 oven, crispy potatoes fried in virgin home produced olive oil, to mention a few, is a small sample of the tastes and activities shared with heartfelt enjoyment next to the well preserved farm.

To our pleasant surprise, the farm now offers residence in its brand new traditional stone and wood cottage, constructed nearby in a most breathtaking peaceful environment.

We look forward going back in the next season for anther unforgettable life’s experience!

I took my mother to Crete for her 60th birthday and wanted her to have an amazing experience. Visiting Kamihis Farms helped make that happen. Just driving there was gorgeous! We made bread, cheese, and got to hear about amazing traditions. The food we ate from Karob cakes to eggplant spreads were AMAZING. It's a must visit!

Kamihis Farm is not another farm experience. You can learn not only the Cretan culture but also the philosophy of happiness in life. The hosts are truly authentic people who embrace the whole of nature and its beauty. They are eager to share what they love with joy. Their generosity and authenticity touched my heart very much! :D

The experience is well planned and organized. You can try cooking, tasting, feeding animals, dancing and more...! There's plenty to discover and both adults and kids will definitely enjoy! Highly recommend!

When we visited the farm (July 2019), some roads from Heraklion were temporary closed due to roadwork and took us a while to figure out how to get to the farm. It could be a good idea to give yourself extra time to get there in case of unexpected roadwork.
