Slow Food Experience at Dalabelos

This experience is crafted in accordance with the principles of Slow food, ensuring that it is delicious, socially responsible and ecologically sustainable. Slow food is a global movement which began in Italy during the 80’s – a global movement aiming to create a world where all people can truly enjoy good and healthy food that respects the environment and our planet. Slow food comes in contrast with the fast food mentality which rules our contemporary lifestyle. It is all about good, clean and fair food. We at Dalabelos agritourism complex in Angeliana village Crete, support the philosophy of Slow food even before it began as a founded movement and continue to follow and fully support it after. Almost all vegetables and herbs grow in our farm. Our meat comes from organically fed animals (sheep, lamb, rabbit, chicken).
