A village where the art of pottery was flourishing for centuries. He received his first knowledge from his father and grandfather and started to craft his own ceramics at the age of eight. He has studied in the Art School of Athens and Graduated in 1968. With a total of five years of experience in workshops and another ten years of teaching the art of pottery to children with special needs in the art school of Chania he started running his first workshop in Kissamou Street. After 14 years in the city center, he moved to the coastal village of Maleme and he has been working and creating ceramics there ever since. He has received a number of Laudations from art festivals in Crete and Athens and the original handcrafts have been aprooved by EOMMEX (association for small businesses with handmade products) and therefore carry the stamp of authenticity. In the Maleme workshop you can find one of the richest in colours, crafts and sizes collection of handmade ceramics in Crete. All created with non-toxic and environment friendly materials and colours, glazed and double-baked for maximum endurance and quality. Apostolakis Ceramics have been exported over the years to the United Kingdom, Norway, Finland, South Sweden, Israel and have been used in Restaurants, Galleries, Family run Businesses as well as Festivals. We are open daily from April until the end of October. It would be a pleasure to meet and guide you through our collection and history in order to share the love we have for this art.

Nearly 20 hectares of land are waiting to welcome you, full of fruit trees from all over the world, herbs, medicinal and ornamental plants in a park different from others, where the land’s formation and the region’s microclimate make it a paradise for hundreds of plants and animals! In the midst of this colorful and vivid landscape stands a burnt centennial olive tree, a memorial and a reference to the dismal fires of 2003, the park’s history and origin. The newest and one of the most interesting sites of the Prefecture of Chania lies only 18 kilometers outside the city, on the feet of the White Mountains. It is ideal for visitors of all ages, combining enjoyments that only Crete can offer! less
