Naxian Farm Experience & wood-cooking lesson

Discover the charms of rural island living with a wood-cooking experience on Perivoli, a Naxian farm

The tour commences at a family-owned farm located near the village of Melanes.

To begin with, guests will have the opportunity to meet a diverse range of farm animals, including chickens, rabbits, pigs, peacocks, and more. You will also have the opportunity to engage in collecting the day's freshly laid eggs.

Following that, a visit to the olive groves will allow you to learn about the methods employed to cultivate healthy trees and produce top-quality olive oil.

Subsequently, we will guide you through the potato fields, introducing you to the renowned Naxian potato.

You will then have the chance to explore various fruit trees, sampling the delicious seasonal fruits they yield.

Next on the itinerary is a visit to the vineyard and vegetable garden, where you can gather the finest seasonal produce.

Finally, you will collaborate in cooking traditional Naxian recipes over a wood fire. This culinary adventure will include preparing a Naxian omelet and an appetizer such as zucchini balls, savoring Naxian potatoes, sampling a variety of Naxos cheeses, preparing a main dish such as "briam" or "gemista" and enjoying locally produced house wine. To top it off, you will have the opportunity to taste a spoonful of our homemade fruit preserves.

We kindly request the guests to refrain from having a substantial breakfast as the farm owners will be providing them with a treat.

To conclude, If you're in the mood for some fun, they can even partake in lively traditional Naxian dances together!
