interesting in sight to production of olive oil

Taste testing the fab products. The olive oil is great quality and cheaper than local shops. Highly recommend the tapenade that they call pate.

Visited today and what a great place it is. Run by two brothers. Lots of interesting things to look at and a cute donkey. Great shop that allows you to taste products before you buy. All for an entrance fee under a pound. Cheers.

What a lovely few hours out this was. Gorgeous place, learnt lots about olive growing and oil pressing, herbs, food, Raki and Cretan culture. Nice guy showed us round and was very interesting. Bought lots of stuff in the shop to bring home as after tasting I couldn't resist. And the donkey is a star. Defo recommend this place for... More

The farm was much smaller than I had expected and I think it must be run by idealists. It was interesting to see the farm. You could taste oil and raki I think it was. The shop was quite big and filled with products made of olive oil.

We got a great tour of how they made the olive oil. Very informative; got to taste the various different types of oil and honey made. Not a long tour but worth it.

A pleasant hour being shown around this small exhibition, learning about olive growing and processing and then having tasters. Worth a visit

I had heard about this place but it was difficult to find, eventually discovered it on the main road out of Agios Nikolaos towards Elounda. Great place, small boutique museum. Really lovely staff, informative, and a great opportunity to sample their organic olive oil, balsamic, sun dried tomatoes and much more. Great for gifts to take back too. Really really... More

This olive farm with accompanying shop is a great little find just outside Agios Nkolaos and is definitely worth seeking out. We didn't go on the tour, but spent ages in the herb garden and then shop. The best bit is you get to try before you buy, so we tried different olive oils, tapenades, salts etc.... They also sell...

Out of all the places we visited this has to be my favourite, I guess I am a bit of a hippy at heart so this majorly ticked the boxes! The place is fairly small but so well kept and so beautiful, we opted for the guided tour and was shown how all the olives were grown and processed to... More

Found this fabulous, very informative and very very good value for money! Not only was it informative but if you had children with you, they would love the donkey, rabbits and chickens!
