    Just amazing! We loved the time there!💕
    Very special place. We had amazing experience with Vaso and Stravros. They are very friendly couple who’s speaking in English and German. They explained to us everything about the snails and they have a wonderful surprise after all. It’s a perfect program for family and also for couples and friends.

    The best farm with very friendly owners !
    The best experience that we have had ! Very cozy armosphere and friendly owner. She told us a lot about snails and her farm. Did not expect a lot from this place, but actually it was the best farm that we ve ever visited. We had a very interesting conversation with housewife and even got a surprise from her !

    The highlight of holidays in Crete
    This was real fun! The farm lady was so welcoming, warm and all the experience felt like home at grandmas. We didn't have any (or I'd say, we had low expectations) but in the end, we didn't want to leave cause holidays vibe was all over it. We wish that next time when we will come back, there will be some small houses around to stay in, at least for a few days.

    Very interesting experience, and the nicest farm lady ever
    We visited with kids (9 and 13) in July, when the snails are asleep. For the adults, this was the highlight of our week in Crete. The kids also enjoyed it, but they would have loved it even more if we were there in winter when the snails ar active. The hostess is very welcoming and gives an excellent tour, and we now know more about snails than we ever thought we would. Higly recommendable! As this experience is free of charge, you should bring some cash to show your appriciation.

    A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!
    I cannot find the right words to describe this experience because it left us with a unforgettable memory! The children were thrilled to discover so many new things. We wanted them to experience nature, but we received something much bigger. The simplicity, the smiles, the welcome of the owners entered the hearts of all of us. You manage to make a simple place truly magical. If we ever return to Crete, we will certainly visit you again. Thank you for everything, we will miss you!

    Small Farm, Big Heart
    As we drove into the courtyard we were warmly greeted by our hostess. We were guided around the small farm and explained in detail about the whole snail living and farming… We ended up spending several hours here. Completely unplanned. Just go with the experience. Afterwards it will be self explanatory. Our warmest recommendations. Small farm with a big big heart!

    Snails AND fun - fantastic!
    Absolutely loved our time at the snail farm. It certainly was fun too! Vassa was an incredible host, so welcoming, funny and informative. Who knew there was so much to learn about snails! We were 2 adults and we had a great time, doesn’t need to be a kids activity at all! A great few hours out, would 100% recommend stopping by the snail farm!

    It *IS* fun! Go see it!
    This is an absolute hidden gem! Stavros knows everything you’d ever want to know about snails and then some more! What a wonderful couple Stavros and his wife are, we enjoyed our visit so much, and were chatting like old friends by the time we left. The farm is fascinating and well worth a visit.

    The best snail experience
    It is rare to receive such a warm welcome as at this snail farm. I would describe myself as a big snail fanatic, so I was most amused to see a small sign about the existence of the snail farm. we immediately went there and were treated kindly and even got a coffee. My fiancée learned a lot about snails.

My son and I ended up with an extra half day in Heraklion. We decided to visit the Snail Farm because we figured we'd never have another opportunity to see one. It was a great afternoon. The snails were interesting, but the owners were fascinating. We sat with them for several hours, chatting about Greek life. This was a highlight of our Cretan vacation.

A snail farm might seem to be a very uncommon and special sight to most of us (this also applied to us). But based on the excellent reviews and since the farm anyway was on the way to the airport, we visited.
And let me tell you: we don't regret a second! The owner of farm is a very kind and communicative person. She told us a lot about the snails and even provided us with a big surprise in the second part of the tour (everyone gets this surprise).
Even though the snails weren't that interesting for our five year old son, also he enjoyed it because there is a small playground and a bunch of toys.

Number one place to visit in all of Crete.
You learn alot about snails, yes (and let me tell you, they are an interesting bunch for sure), and you have fun, yes - but when these things are combined, words cannot begin to describe. The people here will make you have the best of times!
