Lavender Festival 2021

Lavender Festival 2021

The spectacular lavender gardens bloomed throughout the entire month of June until July.

Every weekend we had creative workshops and educational activities for adults and children to enjoy. Talks about the extraction of lavender essential oil in the distillation room in English, Russian and Greek. People enjoyed tasting complimentary lavender ice tea and lavender cookies, our famous lavender lemonade and cakes and muffins made of lavender. Family photoshoots and solo photoshoots took place in the lavender gardens daily, with long dresses available to wear during the photoshoot, making every woman feel like a Lavender Queen!
