Very friendly staff and very helpful. Loved the blends of nature and usefulness... And they had some interesting products to sell. You can get involved in some of the activities or just do a quick cruise around, it's an unhurried experience.

As in previous years, we received a warm and friendly welcome and happily spent time sampling the oil, olives and sauces produced there while admiring the pottery on sale. I couldn't resist some of the bowls in a beautiful turquoise colour which were very good value for money and made pleasing presents for family and friends. Last year, I enjoyed... More

We learnt a lot about olives and the problems with growing then as it was pretty quiet there and the people had time to talk. Outside was in need of some work but the interior and shop was good.

Well worth a visit to understand the process of the olive oil industry in Crete. Situated in a very peaceful location just passed the Mirobello bay, you can enjoy a guided tour around the herb gardens and the old buildings where the olives where ground to produce the oil. As well as being home to the donkey who helps to... More

We have visited many olive oil factories and farms on different Greek islands, but this one is the best. A must to visit.

We paid for the guided tour - it was worth it. He knew of course, all the history of his place and told us really interesting information about olives and olive oil production. Not expensive, and although the place it not big I would definitely recommend a little trip here - really cute.

A small courtyard containing artefacts from the family's olive oil business going back over a century, it's an engaging hour of your time during which - for €3 - you can get a guided tour of equipment and historical practices. A charming and knowledgeable guide, and a good gift shop where you can buy a range of oils, honey and... More
