Owner description: 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... We continue with the visit to the last person in Apokoronas, who makes sheep and goat bells... We then visit the authentic, old olive-press, the last one left nowadays in Apokoronas, where Leonidas still produces his bio olive oil! We see his wild goats known worldwide as "kri-kri" (a unique chance, because these animals are rarely seen) and we have our meal at his tavern, cooked by his wife...

As my wife was pregnant, we could not do the usual combination, but the tourist office was very accommodating in creating a new combination on a different day in the week even as well! The owner of the visitor center (George) was our guide for the afternoon.The visit to the oil factory was interesting, with a enthusiastic guide. We got a bonus visit to a very old monastery and then went on to a local tavern where we made bread in the outside oven. Afterwards a rich and excellent lunch was served and we talked with the guide a lot about local culture. We felt as guests invited at home, not just tourists. Nothing less of excellent.

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.

Very good food and a lot of it for less money.The modern tavernas are not as good as the traditional ones. They do not reflect the Greek tradition of food

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.
