“Vamos Fabrica farm” provides a chance to the visitors to get familiar with agriculture, its culture and its authentic features, to get involved in the rural activities, to taste local products and traditional cuisine, and to get to know locals’ everyday life. Fabrica farm intends to bring the visitor in touch with nature, rural activities, where he can participate, entertain himself and feel the joy of discovery and knowledge!
It is located in Vamos, a traditional village in Chania, Crete. It lies between the sea and the mountains, offering an amazing view while traditional architecture harmonizes with nature. The small society is full of love about the country and shares the joy of friendship and communication through the Cretan- Greek hospitality.
Fabrica’s agrotouristic settlement consists of two parts: the “Fabrica Houses” and the “Fabrica Farm”. The houses are made of domestic white stone, with tile roofs, to preserve the traditional architecture and they blend in with the surrounding landscape. Every house is autonomous and functional to meet every visitor’s needs, while arouses feelings of coziness and familiarity.
The Frantzeskakis family welcomes you with arms wide open in “Fabrica Farm”! Here you will get to know the everyday life of the locals; and you will be a part of it! Welcome in family’s organic olive grove, with fruit trees and vegetables, birds and farm animals, flowers and herbs, where smells and colors recall another era. Among these, you will find a small stone-built theatre, where you may meet a philosopher declaiming or reciting a poem. On another day, you may meet Nikos while baking homemade bread or cooking in the traditional firewood oven next to the barbeque, and Lola collecting eggs or picking some fresh vegetables. You may accompany her and collect some herbs and wild greens from the garden and make a homemade pie or pick some fresh oranges or other fruits to make marmalades or spoon sweets. You will feed the farm animals and you can pet the dogs or play with the cats since they are all so friendly. You may enjoy the tranquility and peacefulness while sited at the Romantic Corner or lying in a hammock. Listen carefully to what the old olive trees have to say… hear their whispers in the air. You will get to know the secrets of Cretan cuisine while preparing a delicious table. We eat all together around a large table, with good friends so that we will dance and sing.
This is how life in Crete looks like.
