The Cretan Corner- olive oil / Traditional Cretan Products in Maleme, Chania Crete

Odysseas Elytis, born in 1911 in Heraklion, Crete, was one of the most important Greek poets. He once said: “If you disintegrate Greece, in the end you will see that you are left with an olive tree, a vineyard and a boat. Which means: with so much more you can rebuild it. “

In “Cretan Corner_olive oil_Maleme”, not only do we continue the work of our grandfather, but we are inspired by our great poet, and we make sure that in our store there are only exceptional Cretan products, made by small producers, with emphasis on quality and not quantity.
