Stelios Alexakis – The man

Stelios Alexakis

Stelios Alexakis a vivid young man with a vision. He has a B. Sc. in tourism business. He has been involved with the tourism industry in many aspects and he is a strong supporter of cultural growth and tourism development as means to achieve a positive social impact globally.

Stelios comes from a typical Cretan family with a deep interest in Cretan culture, earth and diet habits.  Being nourished with the Cretan lifestyle and the traditional Mediterranean cuisine he could not help but embrace his natural gift in cooking.

That particular gift combined with the strong family bonds he cherishes, led him to establish a traditional Cretan family restaurant named after his mother, that now is one of the must popular restaurants in the wider area of Kournas, Chania. Pelagia’s Yard opened its cuisine to the public in 2007 and since then has gained a brilliant reputation based on the “Fresh food from our farm” philosophy and the friendly customer care.

Shipping solutions are easier to develop in order to meet the demand of quantities such as 40 to 100 litters and 100 to 400 liters.

Patima can easily be a product for every home and its selective chef, but it can also be your restaurant’s signature touch!
