about us

Pitarokoilis Family

The intense geological activity that millions of years ago created in Crete the Lassithi plateau gave birth to a unique, rich and diverse ecosystem where the village of Psychro is located.

From here, as Greek mythology testifies, the creation of a new world began, since in this corner of the earth is the cave of the God of Gods, Father of Gods and people, Zeus, with the wonderful cave decoration and the many finds of worship of theogenesis.

Centuries now in this fertile corner of Crete, guided by the wisdom of the years, people are producing local products while holding on to traditions, transforming the agony of the modern world into offer and standards of life, prosperity and beauty.

Minoan Wave Pattern

Mari-Liis J — “I really liked, that we were told about how they make their peoduct, we also got to taste different things, so we could choose, what we liked. They were not too pushy to buy things and I really loved that they packed our wines really carefully, without asking us and for free."

Dubois M — “We went to visit the shop and the ceramic Factory when we went to the Lassithi plateau. We tried many things like olive oil, carob... Without being push to buy! Then we met Giannis, the ceramic Master. We had such a good time with him. He is really talented. He taught us how to make our own pottery.”
