Vegetarian and Vegan Meals at Notos Retreat on Crete

Vitality holidays with energy-rich, delicious food.

Crete also serves vegetarian and vegan dishes. Many ingredients come fresh from the garden and in organic quality. Let yourself be inspired or come by yourself so we can spoil you with culinary delights in your Crete holiday.


Depending on the season and availability I use fresh ingredients from our garden, as well as dried spices and tea (powder) from our vital plantation in our kitchen.

Meals are served in the common room or on the terrace. Here you are among like-minded people, can make new contacts and exchange about the experiences of the day.
