    staff were lovely- the stable is owned by a father and daughter who are both very hospitable they can speak many languages including English, greek, german transportation wasn't included but they specifically came to pick us up as it was pretty far for us to go by bus/expensive by taxi they also provide orange juice and watermelon up in the mountains there is always a group of staff walking up with you if your horses start acting up or you need help- it's about 4 horses with 1 staff member

    Everyone there is absolutely amazing! You can tell they really care for their horses and their guests. I felt like family from the start. Definitely book the lunch and ride combo as the food and wine were both homemade and delicious! They also gave great recommendations about where to go in Crete and helped you plan your trip. I will definitely book here again if ever in Crete as everything was wonderful!!

    It was my first time and my Mums on a horse it was a highlight of our holiday in Crete. This is a family run business you can see the love and care that goes into everything they do and the rest of the staff were also really helpful. Someone stayed with my mum throughout the whole journey on her horse as she didn’t feel confident he made her feel safe and well looked after. I felt like I was thrown in at the deep end getting straight onto the horse and riding but we was in a group well looked after and I couldn’t of asked for a better experience.
