This place is amazing. They manufacture olive oil using the traditional method. All the products are 100% organic from their own farms. You can try the oils with bread before you buy and can see the production. We were surprised with the orange and lemon flavour olive oil. They just put oranges or lemons in the mill at the beginning... More

We have been visited Biolea and had a very interesting tour guided by the owner, The owner gave us in details the whole process of the bio olive oil manufacturing. Unfortunate the bottling part of the factory was closed so me missed this part. Very good and tasty oil, we bought a few bottles to get them as present.

On our recent visit to Chania we booked a private tour of Biolea with Natalia at Diktynna Travel. The tour of the organic olive oil estate was absolutely wonderful. Christine was so knowledgeable and we learned so much about olive oils. I bought both the original and the lemon infused olive oils. They are awesome!

We got a very friendly greeting, a beautiful guided tour of the facility and a valuable education in olive oil. We also liked the honesty and the approach of the whole operation. Well worth the trip.

Yesterday we had the pleasure to visit Biolea: Explanations about the production process, the essentials about olive oil and a fantastic view as many mentioned here. The olive oil is great, especially the flavored ones. Tip: You have to write an email or call to arrange your visit - Biolea is an olive oil farm not a museum or exhibition.... More

My husband and I came here to tour the factory. We were greeted by the very kind, knowledgeable owner. She walked us through a private tour, followed by a variety of olive oil tasting. We ate the entire loaf of breed with their oils - it was absolutely delicious. We ended up buying 3 bottles, but if we were flying... More

With a great view over the mountains, this little place is quite interesting to visit. The tour was very quick and was divided into two parts. In the first the guide told us about the oil being made, and for the second we went upstairs to watch a short film to see how they produce the oil. Then we got... More
