We went here to kill an hour and for the sake of 3 euros are glad we did. The son showed us around and what he didn't know about the old fashion production of olive oil wasn't worth knowing... we'll be sure to check a little closer when buying oil back in the uk

Lovely little place to pay a visit. It is a small family run place. We had a guided tour of the place.

Spend the extra €1.5 and have the guided tour. The young man who led the tour is obviously passionate about what he does and enthuses his visitors. He is extremely knowledgable about his herbs, olives and the donkey. Without his input the visit wouldn't have been anywhere near as enjoyable. Take a couple of hours and visit. Enjoy the shop...

Stumbled across the farm after finding it on Trip Advisor. After reading the reviews we decided to go - mainly to see the donkey! Donkey aside its a nice way to spend a morning, the guided tour is only €3 and well worth it from the friendly guy who owns the farm. He's very knowledgeable and passionate. There's also a... More

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.

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.
