The small village of Agia Triada is close to the town of Rethymnon on the north coast of the Greek Island of Crete. Not to be confused with the archaeological ruins of a Minoan Palace on the south coast of the region of Rethymnon or the Monastery of Agia Triada, located close to Chania.
The quiet and scenic village is just 10km from the bustling town of Rethymnon and is in the foothills of the highest mountains in Crete, Mount Ida in the Psiloritis range.
It's the perfect get away from it all location but close enough to more vibrant nightlife, if you want it. It is also close to beautiful beach resorts of nearby Adelianos Kampos and Sfakaki. This village is the perfect location for nature lovers. Walkers, hikers and cyclists love this area because of its many trails, treks and gorges.
There is limited choice of accommodation in the village. Just a a few small hotels in Agia Triada and apartments, studios and rooms to rent. Also there are luxury villas to rent in this area.
One of the best Crete attractions is very close to this village. Just 1.5 km in fact. The Agreco Farm is a wonderful place where you can become a farmer for the day. At the Agreco Farm you can learn how to make and eat home-made traditional food that makes up the Cretan diet.
You can try your hand at making and baking bread in the wood-burning oven. You can visit the wine press and taste organic wines that are produced from the surrounding vineyards. You get to pick the vegetables you will later eat at the fabulous Agreco Taverna at the farm.
Another aspect to the Agreco Farm is as a wedding venue. It is so pretty and picturesque.
There is also an evening guided tour of the farm which culminates in a Cretan Feast. Visiting Agreco Farm must be a priority of things to do in Crete, especially for families with kids.
If you are based in Agia Triada, the nearest beach resorts are Sfakaki, Platanes and Adelianos Kampos.
You will not get better food and genuine Cretan hospitality anywhere on Crete if you choose the Agreco Taverna at the Agreco Farm. Everything you eat is produced there, the wine, the raki, vegetables, eggs, the feta cheese and meats. Everything is organic and delicious.
You also get the added bonus of wonderful views of the sunset over the sea while dining. Add to this the exceptional service and friendliness displayed by the staff and you have the recipe for a perfect dining experience.
