Petros Kokotsakis was born on the land that has been in his family for generations. He grew up learning the Cretan way and although Petros has adhered to traditional methods he has an open mind and has continued to make improvements. His Austrian wife, Ingrid Margarita and their four children have a deep love and appreciation for the land as well.
Today, he not only manages the farm and Akrimios but is also very involved in the local community. As Mayor for over 10 years he brought electricity and indoor plumbing to the local villages. He continues to be a consultant and advisor to politicians in Chania. Petros instills a deep respect for Crete in everything that he does. He is a proud Cretan who has worked hard to create a legacy for his children and future generations.
