Meike & FranÇois Lechat

Meike, a German PhD in natural science, and Francois, a French sports teacher, live and work on Crete since 2012: „We love living on Crete, feel at home here and don’t want to miss the Cretan lifestyle anymore. We learned to appreciate the local tastes of our region Apokoronas and started our little business Kali Zoé (good life) to sell local and natural products. The pureness of our products is vital for us. We know our producers in person and trust them. All our products are officially controlled and the analysis confirm their purity and high quality.“

Crete – Our Paradies

Crete, the biggest Greek island, is known for its natural wealth: olive oil, thyme honey, wine, herbs… The traditional cretan diet on the base of olive oil is known to be the most healthy way of living world wide. Our region, the Apokoronas, is situated East of Chania in the north-western part of Crete between the White Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. Most local families possess their own olive groves. Also orange groves and avocado trees line the streets. In spring, summer, and autumn, many tourists visit the Apokoronas to enjoy the nature, landscape, lifestyle and hospitality of the Greeks. In winter it is more relaxed (greek „siga-siga“) but for the Greeks it is a busy time because they harvest their olives to produce their fascinating and tasty olive oil. South lie the White Mointains full of snow in winter and spring , in the North the turquoise sea , and in between little greek villages and countless olive groves – for us the paradise on earth.
