Participating in the international food fair SIAL PARIS | last feeling of summer

Dear friends,

A year and two months have passed since the huge fire and you may wonder what has changed. The wounds are still visible. On the estate they prune and care for the trees but they can’t water easily because the irrigation system has been destroyed.


We plant forest plants on the boundaries of the property. With your help we have been watering them all summer.







We are tidying up the area around the warehouse that was badly damaged and preparing the olive press by putting up walls, doors, tiles, toilets etc. We are trying to incorporate environmentally friendly technologies so that we have a small carbon footprint and minimal waste.

This year we closed the hotel early. Our main problem was and still is the difficulty in finding staff. This affects the duration of the hotel’s operation.

As soon as we closed the hotel for the winter, the harvesting of the olives started. Although we lost 2/3 of the property to last year’s fire, we will still have a good crop.

We are getting ready to participate in the international exhibition SIAL in Paris, 15-19 October 2022 in hall 2, booth J099, with our extra virgin organic olive oil "olive oil". We would be very happy, if you are near Paris, to see you and to treat you to our fresh olive oil.

The summer has passed quietly, without any unpleasant surprises. We were not very busy as people hesitated to visit an area badly burned.  We like to thank those who visited the are for the first time this year. You give us courage to keep going, to bring joy back to our small community, to recover.



4 August. We remembered the day the fire passed through Rovies. We wrote our wishes on paper boats and let them sail quietly to the sea.





During the summer we organized several olive oil tastings and passed on our knowledge. We gazed at the night sky and the moon with the telescope and spent hours chatting. Great evenings…



warm regards

Marina and Stefanos

We  land a hand in setting up the exhibition LEVANTE in the medieval tower of Rovies.
