The Olive Farm

The Olive Farm is our base on Crete.  A small estate with an organic olive grove, vegetable patches and a herb garden to provide for our cooking sessions, and a small traditional cottage. Situated at the edge of the village of Litsarda, a tiny beautiful village at the district of Apokoronas in western Crete, the farm is located right at the foothills of the White Mountains only a 30 minute drive from the city of Chania.

At the Olive Farm you can experience the joy of cooking outdoors and discovering the local gastronomy in natural suroundings. There’s a purpose built outdoor kitchen, with a wood oven, barbeque and a perfect location for “al fresco” eating.

Stay a while and enjoy slow days, slow food and long sociable evenings.

If you come on one of our cooking holidays in Crete, the farm is our meeting point, where we get together for our activities. All accommodation and guest houses are very close by in the local villages.
