Arion          Stables
We are a German-Greek family and operate our small business since 2007. We own a small tavern, a children's playground, 2 riding arenas, paddock stables and a large open barn for a group of horses.

The riding and driving stable is beautifully situated on a hill between the old villages of Hersonissos and Analipsi. Only 2.5 km from the Analipsi beach (25 minutes to walk).

After her studies as a graduate graphic designer, she moved to her husband Georgio to Crete and bought her first horse. In 2006 she made the horse coach driver's license. With the acquisition of the stables Zara was fulfilled her lifelong dream.

Mama Maria
loves to cook and to try new recipes. Cooking is her passion, and you can realy  taste it, all dishes are prepared daily fresh, so there is only a small selection of traditional Cretan dishes.

Besides horses, we keep a few goats, sheep, turtles, tortoises, guinea pigs, rabbits, cats and dogs.

We take people who care about nature and animals for horse riding and carriage rides through the olive groves, mountains and along the beach. We also take horses on board and offer riding lessons.

We hope that you feel comfortable with us,  we do our best to make people and animals feel like at home.
