Overview
More
We are organic herb farmers in Eastern Crete. Our farm is located on the sea in the scenic village of Kavousi on the Northeastern coast of Crete. Our herbs are derived from clippings of wild herb cuttings of the area, hence preserving all the unique aromas, flavours and properties, while at the same time preserving Cretan biodiversity. Some of our plants are extremely unique as they are found only in Crete. Our herb farm can be visited all year round and guests can actively take part in harvesting and planting of the herbs during spring-summer time. Educational tours also operate all year round. We make various herbal products such as herbal teas, spices and bath products. We also make decorative items such as handmade baskets and wraths from the remaining herb twigs that are left over. Visitors always enjoy a herbal tea on the house! Please email us before visiting, as we are not always on the herb farm, and workshops must be booked in advance.

An amazing place, completely cut off from the rest of the world. To get to "Votania" you need a car, purposefulness and an irresistible desire to go up the hill on a steep road. And also, the absence of fellow travelers, who affraid by steep...More

I ordered already several times from Votania. We really like the excellent herbs but also the tea they produce. Our preferred tea is the Mountain Blend with Cretan dittany. If you are around Agios Nikolaos just visit them!
