Grecotel's Agreco Farm

Grecotel’s Agreco Farm gives a whole new meaning to ‘real experience.’ Founded by Grecotel’s owners on a 40-hectare estate near Rethymno, Crete, the traditional farm showcases centuries-old farming methods. The farm provides a fascinating insight into the organic production of the island’s simple and healthy food – a must for any visitor to Crete.

No trip to Agreco would be complete without a visit to the farm’s Taverna, where a sumptuous six-course menu of Cretan dishes, based on the farm’s organic produce.

Βe a Farmer for a Day

On Wednesdays visitors can play “Farmer for the Day” and learn just how it feels to make and eat home-made traditional Cretan food. Simply nowhere else in Greece can you ‘live life’ on an organic farm.

Families enjoy the Farm Experience, visit the mini zoo, while junior farmers (aged 6-12) can enjoy fun-filled farm activities including making dough & baking, picking vegetables and preparing
dishes for their own healthy Cretan lunch.


The Agreco Farm is open daily from 11:00 – 22:00.  Enjoy the beautiful view, relax in natural surroundings and drink Greek coffee, raki or wine at the Agreco Kafeneio.
