A history that begins from the memories of a significant name, both for its etymology glass and because of the family itself that withdignity and pride kept its roots unchanging over the centuries.The name Olokalos can be translated either as beautiful or as a good man.This beauty is definitely referred to both the physical appearance and the rich inner world of the people carrying this name.Ioannis Olokalos (1496-1543) was a notary by profession at that time in Ierapetra, Crete and the owner of the land that the hotel is recently erected. As centuries went by, the land remained in family hands and was cultivated to offer its fruits to the following generations. In1912, Konstantinos immigrates to Brazil with the hope of a better future, leaving his three children George, Michael and Maria behind inthe village of Anatoli. Four decades later, the two boys with their families followed the way abroad after their father’s invitation, so the only one remaining on the island is Maria. For the harsh years to come this land will be a source of life for the family, since the oil, the almonds, the wheat and the barley produced there will help the family survive. In the late ’60 and while the mountainous areas are depopulated because of the immigration of the citizens to the plains, the farm is abandoned and the family, in turn, follows the shift to the more fertile lands of the beach. After Maria’s death in 1981, the farm was inherited by her son George, who took his name in memory of her beloved brother. 25 years later, George recalled his mother’s prophetic words when one evening he and his brother, weary by the harvest, used degrading words to talkabout a land that was so tiring, but at the same time offered them so little. Beautiful houses are going to be built here, she said resentfully. At that time these words seemed a fruitless dream. Today this dream comes true and unites the history of the past with today’s luxury.
