Tienda Ecológica Olea

Maria, Samantha and Joe outside the new shop in LLanes
Maria worked with us at the hotel two years ago and since leaving has been setting up a shop in Llanes specialising in organic products. Yesterday she had the inauguration of her shop and it attracted quite a gathering of people.

A good gathering of people in the inauguration of the shop.
The shop is called Olea Tienda Ecologica and sells all sorts of organic and fair trade products with a good range of food items including fresh fruit and vegetable as well as cosmetics, cleaning products and even organic seeds and fertilizers.
Fresh fruit and vegetables on sale
The shop is nicely decorated, the products are very well presented; Maria is as helpful and pleasant as ever, so it makes a lovely place to do your shopping. You can find the shop by the harbour in Llanes.

From all of us at the hotel we wish Maria all the best with her new venture and encourage everyone in the area to go along and visit the shop

How wonderful to have an Organic shop nearby, here in the province of Lugo we have no such thing, it's not even possible to buy an GMO free chicken, and as for an organic chicken there is no chance. No organic veg either, it's a good job we can produce our own.You seem to have so much going on in Asturias. We wish we could have made it to the Earth Pilgrims Retreat,having been long term admirers of Satish Kumar.
