Heidi en Manu op Kreta
Bij Kalyvitis Kreta

Who we are

In 2008 we, Heidi (Dutch) and Manu (French), decided to leave the Netherlands to start a new adventure. We gave up our jobs and sold everything to drive a camper to destinations unknown. After months of exploring and travelling we arrived at the island of Crete. We then bought a piece of land with olive trees and started building a home. After four months of hard work our house was finished, and we noticed that we were falling in love with this idyllic place between the olive fields. We were moved by the mountains, the climate, the clear blue sea but also by the pure, simple life of the Cretan people around us. It is a simple life. A life close to nature, a natural luxury which attracted us so much. From this idea we started our concept Kalyvitis. For those who just want to escape modern society for a while, and literally want to see, hear, feel, smell and taste again what pure nature means. 

Our dream team!

The concept of Kalyvitis would not be complete without our animals. All special creatures with their own character and their own contribution to the work here. They are very special, and without them Kalyvitis wouldn't be what it is today. That is why we would like to highlight each of them (besides ourselves)!
