Our Land

Ethos’ lands are the same lands where the ancient people of Gortyna, one of the earliest Cretan towns, cultivated the first European olive trees and extracted the first olive oil, thousands of years ago.

Just beneath the breath-taking Asterousia mountains, in the Messara valley, between 230 and 310 meters altitude, our olive trees breathe the fresh air coming from the Mediterranean sea. On the same mountains, our bees enjoy the unique and vitalizing Cretan mountain herbs and produce the acclaimed Cretan Honey.
