Explore Greece: Fantastic Agrotourism

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)    In their article “20 fantastic farm stays” in the Observer (5.10.2008) about their favourite rural retreats in Britain and elsewhere, Jane Dunford and Sarah Turner include the Milia retreat in Chania, Crete, is which featured at place 16. In their words:  “An agritourism pioneer, Milia was set up in the Chania region in 1991 by a group of locals who decided to renovate a collection of derelict farm buildings and start an organic farm.” The farm produces nearly all the ingredients needed for the typical regional dishes served up in the farm restaurant, including rabbit with local cheese. One could visit in the fall or winter, as guests are encouraged to get involved: November sees raki production, while olives are harvested between December and February.  Secretariat General of Information: World Media on Greece – Travel
