About us

Traditional Cretan products of our own production

Papagiannakis family is a purely Greek family business, active and transferred from generation to generation in the field of olive oil production and beekeeping for at least the last 80 years, which maintains its structure and values ​​of its birthplace.
The beginning of producing our own products was first done by our grandfather, then his work was continued by our father and later on taken over and developed by us, Antonis and Ioannis Papagiannakis. We believe that this is the right way to handle a family business and every generation has the duty to do so.

Olive oil

Extra virgin olive oil produced from our family's olive groves, of the Koroneiki variety in a fully modernized olive oil mill with modern cold pressing technology machinery, with a two-phase decanter (ecological method), always respecting the product itself and our birthplace.

Honey

We have managed to expand throughout Crete, placing our beehives in the appropriate places around our island. We produce eight different varieties (flavors) of honey, depending on the blooming season.

Tour

Get to know the world of the olive and the bee!

Tour the old stone olive mill we inherited from our ancestors, which now accommodates our new facilities. Try our unique quality products in a specially designed area overlooking the mountain plain.

Πολύ ευγενικοί… φιλόξενοι… Μας μίλησαν και μας ξενάγησαν στον χώρο και στο τέλος μας κέρασαν γραβιέρα, παξιμαδάκια , ντομάτα, ελιές με ποικιλία μελιών και λάδι… φεύγοντας μας έδωσαν δωράκι και στους εκπαιδευτικούς αλλά και σε όλους τους μαθητές…Είναι ένα μέρος που το προτείνω ανεπιφύλακτα για εκπαιδευτικές εκδρομές και γενικότερα ο καθένας αξίζει να το επισκεφτεί…

La guida è simpaticissima e molto accogliente, la degustazione sotto il portico all'ombra merita il viaggio poi... Ottimi prodotti!

Η φιλοξενία στον χώρο ήταν απερίγραπτη!!! Νιώσαμε σαν στο σπίτι μας, ήταν όλοι πολύ ευγενικοί και πρόθυμοι να μας ξεναγήσουν και να απαντήσουν σε όλες μας τις ερωτήσεις. Τα προϊόντα που δοκιμάσαμε ήταν ένα και ένα ξεχωριστά 🍯 θα το προτείνω σε οποίο επισκέπτεται την Κρήτη!!!

Not only were the honeys and oil delicious, the experience itself was way more than we expected!! You get very interesting information on the production of olives and on beekeeping.

We had a great time today at Idiosmos! Mariana was a great tour guide. You can tell how passionate she is about the products. Both Mariana and Mrs Anastasia were extremely hospitalable. We highly recommend the stopping here when you're in Crete!

Mariana is an awesome host! Felt like we were chatting as friends about the intricacies of olive oil and honey. It was an enlightening experience with the context and taste test in the end. Don't be too full before attending! Try the Arbutus and the yellow cheese :)
