Hello!We are a family of beekeepers ,located in Crete .Our story starts back in 1982 when a young mathematician (our father) bought his first hive as a new hobby “a moment is enough”. The hobby had become obsessive! Since then, the bees have increased to hundreds hives in numerous bee yards across Crete, producing many different types of monofloral honeys. Nowadays the legacy continues as the next generation ,Yianni & Elena continue the excellence in honey production by implementing fresh ideas. Me as an agronomist and my sister as honey expert ,we will create a mind-expanding life experience.

This was a very educational and fun experience. Yianni is very knowledgeable about everything bee and nature related and he was a fantastic host. The location we visited was also stunning, overlooking the mountains and the sea. Plus, we gained a whole new perspective on honey 🍯 Can highly recommend.

Super knowledgeable, interesting facts and stories, delicious honey and friendly bees! We learned so much and got to participate as bee keepers versus just watching. It was such a unique and interesting few hours with the bees, and got to chat and ask any questions we could think of! This experience will spark a passion for bees and honey in anyone.

I don't know where to start. It is just so good, informative but not boring. He is an expert but he's not bosy. It's like listening to your friend giving expert answers to your basic questions. His passion of beekeeping is overflowing. The bees were so calm and chill. You are in good hands because you'll be in protective gear and his instructions are simple and concise. Prepare to get your fingers sticky because of free honey tasting at the end.
