Oil of Vitality
In very close proximity from the valley of Matala is the olive grove of the Fasoulaki family and a small hotel business. The family combines traditional Cretan hospitality and olive oil.
Pictured is our father and the founder of the olive grove, an ex-officer in the commercial Greek navy he travelled for many years working as a head mechanic on the ships of Aristoteles Onassis. When he retired he invested in the olive grove and built the hotel complex in Matala the place of his origin. Today he is over 90 years old and still very active in the harvest with his sons and grandsons.
For more then 30 years, besides the Hotel we have also been developing an independent olive grove for our family and the hotel guests.
Recently we completed the transition to organic cultivation and now we look forward to transitioning into a regenerative agriculture model.
For this reason we use only natural solutions and methods of cultivation. We would like to leave the earth in better shape than we found it. Our reward is not derived from the quantity but from the quality we produce of this live food olive oil product – a gift from nature.
We also produce oranges, honey, prickly pears, wine, and our own raki. We produce small but sufficient quantities for our needs.
