My name is Manolis and I come from Kroustas, Lasithi. I'm married and I have one child.
I am a professional beekeeper and a farmer and I am also a specialist in house renovations. I know everything about the construction of fireplaces and traditional wood ovens according to the methods that have been followed since the Minoan era. Even today, I use the same building materials which were used back then.
In my free time, I enjoy strolling in the forest of Kroustas, which is of unique natural beauty, as well as cultivating my grandparents’ land with the techniques I have learned from them. I also like to invite my friends to my mountain house and cook Cretan recipes for them.
I am the owner of a beautiful stone house in the forest, which I built myself. It is built among ancient trees with incredible panoramic view to the sea and has an internal and external fireplace, two wood ovens, a barbecue and a reception area for at least 20 visitors under the shade of a centuries-old oak. The house has one bathroom, two bedrooms and a living room that can accommodate eight people.
I can’t wait to meet you and tell you all about my life experiences!
