Visit the local producers

The essential four of Cretan Nutrition. We will visit the people who continue a centuries-old tradition.:

Herbs
Natalia collects the herbs from the natural world that surrounds us, and makes teas with them. The sea salt comes from the local salt pans and she smokes it or she mixes it with lemons from her garden. Her orange-lemon jam is delicious. Using carob pods, she makes a very nice carob syrup, the most natural and organic sweetener you can find!.
Olive Oil
Αt the olive mill of the Melissakis Family, we are already at the fifth generation of olive oil producers. One of the most modern olive mills in the area, guaranteeing the quality of the Crown of Cretan products, Olive Oil
