Agia studios in Crete

Holiday in the studio on Crete

Not far from Agia Pelagia, a small town with beautiful bays and beaches on the north coast of the Greek island of Crete, are the Agia studios  by Saverio and Lydia. Located in the middle of an olive grove in the mountains, there is a breathtaking view of the sea from here.

Fancy a Cretan cooking class?

In the Saverio bistro you should definitely try the freshly made mocha and listen to his tips on the most beautiful corners of Crete. Saverio really does everything here to offer its guests the best time of the year.

The trained chef also offers cooking courses that teach the basics of Italian and Greek cuisine. Olive oil tasting included. The cooking courses mainly use organic products from our own garden and from farmers who are friends.

Upcycling the Cretan way

The two of them have gradually converted a small farm here into a wonderfully cozy retreat. The special feature: all the furniture in the apartments is made from recycled materials, because Lydia and Saverio are passionate about giving old things a new life.

The spacious and light-flooded holiday apartments are ideal for family holidays and can accommodate four to six people. There is no TV here, but you can relax in the hammock in the quiet olive garden and browse through a book. And the food tastes twice as good on the sun terrace. The nice thing is that there is a market not far from the studios that sells fresh, regional products. You can then prepare the delicacies on your own grill in the evening.

Diving and water sports in Agia Pelagia

If you don't want to cook yourself, a trip to the village of Agia Pelagia is recommended. Here you will find the typical taverns where you can enjoy fresh fish and the Cretan cuisine. From here you can also find all kinds of offers for water sports and diving excursions. A rental car is recommended for exploring the island.
