Dr Jerolyn Morrison and Mrs Evi Christoulaki will be happy to welcome you! Dr Morrison is a potter, anthropologist and archaeologist living and working in Crete since 1997. Mrs Evi Christoulaki is from Rethymno and has recently finished her studies in Business and Alternative Tourism.
Minoan cooking constitutes a unique culinary experience, a trip in Minoan culture and history of Crete. We use a slow cooking process in Minoan-style ceramic cooking pots. Our favourite recipes are lentils with coriander and honey, lamb with xinohondros and sage, pork with fruits!

- Municipal Garden
The Municipal Garden of Rethymno is an attraction near the city center of Rethymno, at Tessaron Martyron Square at the borders of the Old Town with the new town. A green area that consists of a playground, hydrants with fresh drinkable water, a fountain and a cafeteria is the Municipal Garden of Rethymno, the third to be created in the city in 1925 after the Police School Garden and the today’s Customs Garden in the old port.
