If you want to discover southern Crete on a horse back, you should visit the Horsefarm Melanouri! Ride on old dirt roads off the civilization to Komo Beach, between old olive trees, by ravines and through the wild Asteroussia mountains! Be culinary spoiled and caught in the history of Crete, enjoy the traditional Cretan hospitality - get honey to your soul!
When we arrived at the horse farm, we were kindly greeted by Manuela and her husband Nikos, the horses were ready to start and so we began our ride after a short talk about our skills. We followed a sandy trail and had a ride though the backland of Komos towards the wonderful beach. All of us felt very comfortable with the horses and since we had a slow ride, we could enjoy the nature on our outride, at the beach, we have increased the pace and galloped along the water.
On the way back we passed the archaeological site of Komos and followed the trail back to the horse farm - all in all it took us about an hour and we had a great time!
