Our Organic Farm

Over the past three years, we regenerated 2.5 acres of farmland on Patmos Island into a thriving oasis of good Greek soil. With the help of natural farming techniques, a once barren valley has become a lush green garden, teeming with organic vegetables, herbs, and flowers.

Garden of éla! Jul. 2023

Every year, we get a bit better. 
Siga, siga, as they say.

Last summer, our residency chefs, Francesco Dolcetta Capuzzo, formerly of Le Troisgros, & Ralph Sason, an up-and-coming chef from Istanbul, harvested the vegetables themselves and got groovy In the garden of éla! It’s Important that way. For them to feel like they understand the earth, the soil, the wildness of the green growing.

We picked petals fresh from the flower garden and created wild bouquets that we placed on the table each night.

For our ‘24 season, we will be writing stories on the process of natural farming and the work we are doing to regenerate the soil of Christos Valley.

We’ve got lots of new exciting things In store for the season and we’re excited to share them with foodies, Inspiring young farmers like ourselves, and those who just want to dig deep.

The Natural Wine Cellar

Starting from just a few shelves of wine, we transformed a mid-century Greek cottage into a cellar that features a rotating selection of rare, low-production wines from Western Europe and Georgia.

Our cellar made its mark when we opened our doors in 2021 and became the first 100% natural wine bar in Greece.

Patmos Island

Patmos is a curvaceous volcanic island perched in the South Aegean Sea. Known as the Island of the Apocalypse, Patmos is a spiritual retreat for travelers worldwide. It is thought that Patmos summons people with its spiritual energy, calling the lucky few to its seahorse shape. Who knows, but the calm and crystal blue waters are perfect for long swims, and there’s nothing better than a glass of wine after a long, refreshing swim.

Visiting éla!

éla! is located in the valley of Christos on Patmos Island. On your way from Kampos Beach to Lampi Beach, turn left at the wine barrel and follow the driveway all the way down the valley.*
