Most of the time breakfast is served under the pergola in the courtyard overlooking the plain and the sea. It includes tea, coffee, Cretan herbal mountain tea, local honey and yogurt, home-made marmalades, muesli, fresh seasonal fruits from the gardens, freshly laid eggs, as well as a Cretan breakfast (herbal tea, honey, rusk, oregano, organic olive oil, olives). Upon request: fresh ewe’s milk from the shepherd’s sheep.

Breakfast is optional.


Meals are also served outside under the pergola in the courtyard. During cool nights, however, they are served in the dining room near the kitchen and by the fireplace (a pair of swallows returns every year in spring, to lay its eggs in a nest under the beams of the dining room).

The meals are a true opportunity to familiarize oneself with the Cretan cuisine and hospitality. Old grandma’s recipes are resurrected and prepared with olive oil, herbs, leaves, blossoms, fruits and vegetables decorating the dishes, after having first been adjusted to the spirit and the demands of our time.

The ingredients are produced in Kostas’s organic garden or in the neighbours’ gardens; other products are bought from the small shops of the neighbouring area. The wines come from the surrounding vineyards, the cheese, yogurt and meat from the pasturages of the nearby mountains.

Meals: one or two evenings a week.

Meals are optional.
