Pottery Classes

Creating each pot is a unique moment. The ability that clay gives you from a piece of amorphous matter to create objects that will make everyday life more beautiful give it invaluable value. The hours I go to the atelier are for me a source of energy and relaxation, and that’s what I’m looking for those who visit my atelier. The workshop is located 16 kilometres from Heraklion ( acces only with car ), in a unique location in the nature, with a spectacular view of Cretan mountains. The area around offers many opportunities for walking and visiting the nearby villages.

Presentation of folk musical instruments

Presentation of folk musical instruments

star-5
1
A unique place in the Cretan culture and the musical tradition of Crete, hold its traditional musical instruments. The roots of some musical instruments in Crete are lost in the depths of the ages. In the archaeological excavations of Knossos and Phaistos, representations of sculptures, ceramics and painting are depicted by musicians and dancers who point to the present day, where the lyre plays in the middle and the dancers dance around it cyclically. The ancient Cretes used to play the ancient lyre, as shown by representations in frescoes and seals. The presentation of folk instruments lasts for 1,5 hour and after a 1 hour break we continue with a nice evening in Dalabelos Estate Restaurant where we play music with the instruments we presented earlier with treats, refreshments, raki and other products of the estate.

We believe in experiencing and feeling the authentic vibes of every place. One of the "must do" things you should do coming to Crete is to taste some of local foods. It is a common truth that Cretan gastronomy is the main body of Mediterranean diet (proven by many studies such as "The Seven Countries Study"). So, we offer you the opportunity not only to taste the Cretan cuisine but also to learn & cook authentic Cretan recipes by your own! We have been born and bred in Crete for more than three generations. So, the Cretan lifestyle & diet runs in our veins. Along with my mother, we would love to share with you all the secrets of traditional Cretan cuisine, cook authentic Cretan recipes and learn cooking techniques that we follow for more than 3 generations. All in all, we want to make you feel like a local Cretan. We want to immerse you in Cretan culture & spirit. Smell, taste & feel our tradition, through a unique hands-on cooking experience!

We believe in experiencing and feeling the authentic vibes of every place. We have been born and bred in the South Crete (in Messara Plain) for more than three generations. So, the Cretan lifestyle & diet runs in our veins. Along with my grandmother & my mother, we would love to immerse you in Cretan culture and spirit! We would love to do that by showing you how we used to cultivate olive groves and how we do now, how you can see if an olive oil is extra virgin or not, how we harvest olive oils. Moreover we will guide you in our family's greenhouses and show you how we cultivate them. And the best part come in the end...We will have a traditional picnic under a big olive tree, where my grandma will show you how we make cheese, you will have the chance to taste warm mizithra (kind of cheese) and a variety of local meze and raki! All in all, we want to make you feel like a local Cretan. Smell, taste & feel our tradition, through a unique food tour experience!

Cretan Cooking Classes in a magic garden

Cretan Cooking Classes in a magic garden

The experience starts in our blooming garden, where you learn about the Cretan culture, history, culinary customs, fresh ingredients, products, even about typical words that locals use to describe their food while sipping on a glass of indigenous Cretan wine. You will have the chance to make simple but mouth-watering cold starters and ask your adviser questions and cooking tips so to recreate all, when back home. Then, it’s behind the scene, in our kitchen with your sleeves rolled up, to get involved with preparing and cooking your main creation. Along with our chefs, you may select classical Cretan dishes, as well as ones with a modern twist. Once everything is cooked and flavours are soaked up, it’s time to sit to the table tucking into your handmade masterpieces under the candlelight, sharing feelings, laughter & food as Cretans do. Meze, appetizers, main course, dessert is there but this wouldn’t be a typical Cretan culinary feast without slowly savouring every drop of your raki!

Traditional Cretan Village Bakery Class with Lunch in Vatos

This activity is a combination of a traditional baking class and an experience of the village way of life. Here at Vatos Village, we equip our potential or experienced "bakers" with the tools that they need in order to create delicious village bread. We will focus on mastering the fundamentals as well as discussing traditional techniques as we practice making our bread on our stone mill and wood ovens. After the baking procedure has finished, the dough is left to rest for approx. 45', during which time our village tour takes place. We get to see the Village school, the traditional village water faucets, the raki cauldron and "Grandma's" traditional kitchen. By the time we return, it will be time to continue with our baking lesson and to shape the bread into its final form. When the baking process comes to an end we will head towards our traditional home where you will get to enjoy a unique family atmosphere and a wonderful Cretan home-cooked lunch, along with your freshly baked bread.
