The idea

The idea

We grew up in this blessed place : In the mountains, plateaus , canyons , springs , rivers and snow . Under the dryads , the planes , the cherry trees , between thyme , dictamos , sage and asfentamos .
We grew up with the values ​​of our parents : hospitality, solidarity , self-sufficiency , respect towards goods and optimism towards life .
We grew up with a diet that became global example : With the oil , wheat , wine , roasting meat and bread as the time of Homer .

Adults anymore, worked and traveled knowing other people and places.
We returned with the knowledge that what was freely given us were real gifts of the gods and that people appreciate them all over the world and worths to keep , retain and transfer it to future generations .

We created this ecotourism unit because the value of the place and its people supported our philosophy . In conjunction with the mountain chalet at 940 meters altitude , in modern facilities, will take off your experience and discover the natural advantages and beauty of the mountainous Rethymnon .
