The beauty of Messinia has two ‘faces’ - on the one hand, there is, Taygetos mountain, stone walls, fig and prickly pear trees, olive trees, stone houses and vineyards, and on the other hand, there is the deep blue sea, sandy bays, fishing boats, and fishermen with their nets.Messinia is situated in the southwestern part of the Peloponnese, and in the southern part of Continental Greece. Messinia needs no introduction: Renowned throughout the world for its rich history and unsurpassed natural beauties, it spellbinds its visitors.

The capital of the Prefecture of Messinia is the lovely city of Kalamata.

One & Olive

One & Olive holds precious secrets carried through five generations and carefully kept for more than 120 years. In 1896, papa-Apostolis (the village clergyman) supported the local economy by producing the best olive oil in the region of Messinia. Since then, the Anagnostopoulos family has carried the family values as precious treasures: philotimo (love of honor), love, dedication, hard work, dignity, loyalty and unity. These values, blended with the fruitful countryside of Southern Peloponnese-Messinia, were papa-Apostolis secret ingredients for his exceptional olive oil. All generations of the Anagnostopoulos family inherited his passion for precious products of the Messinian earth, while producing exceptional extra virgin olive oil was their One & Olive love. This love became a family tradition and a gradual duty for dedication to perfection.
