CEO - Escargot De Crete
The area of Latzima is one of the most beautiful areas of Crete. Renowned for its beautiful coastal bays in the front (500 meters from our site), and the spectacular sea caves. The entire coast of the forehead is designated NATURA 2000 to protect the caretta-caretta turtle and monachus-monachus seal. In the wider region Latzima operate some of the largest hotels of Rethymno.
But Latzima region famous for its agricultural products, particularly for olive oil which belongs to the protected designation of origin (PDO), because of its specific characteristics, which make it more qualitative than other areas. It is also noteworthy that in most biological olive groves in Greece Latzima region are concentrated with a few exceptions, where even made conventional crops.
The climatic conditions of the region are mild, with little rainfall. The winter temperatures are relatively high and the summer mild. The difference in temperature during the day is very small, which helps enormously productive activity of our units. Generally the climate is intensely hot and dry with very large intervals of sunshine throughout the year, factors that play a very large role in producing high quality snails.
