I liked the personal story telling style of the family member taking us round and learned a lot more about the Olive domination of the island! Got a few free tastes inside and bought some good stuff to take home. All for entry fee of 1.50 euros, bargain!

I have just spent the most delightful couple of hours here learning to make dolmades and tsatsiki interspersed with drinking Raki! Vespina was so lovely, friendly and very talented! Having made and cooked the dolmades, we ate them with the tsatsiki - delicious! I am looking forward to making these with my grandchildren when I return home. Their produce is... More

Nothing to dislike, it was near our hotel, very informative and well stocked with items to bring home. We were able to sample products and there was no hard sell. The cinnamon and honey raki is delicious

Beautiful environment and lots to see! Well worth a visit, as you learn many things and get to take away a local, handmade products.

Despite having been to the mirabello hotel twice before we had never made it to the olive oil farm before, but I wished we had been sooner! We were greeted by very friendly staff who gave us generous measures of raki and plenty of local delicacies to sample which were delicious. There were lots of products to buy as gifts... More

After finding the olive oil farm on trip advisor and noticing the cheap entrance fee of €1.50 per adult and children free we decided to pop by and visit. We were given a tour around the farm by a lovely gentleman who was happy to respond to any questions- not only about the farm but he also recommended other areas... More

Only a 5 min walk from our hotel (Mirabello). Family run business - arrived around 11:00am. Wandered around the herb garden. Tour costs 1.50 Euro but there was nobody around so we wondered around on our own. There is a well stocked shop selling their produce from olive oil to soaps to Raki.

Hello, Thank you for the review, just want to inform you and all of our future guests that when requested, we give tours daily from 9.30 to 18.30 except Sundays which is 10.00 to 13.00. The small token of 1.50€ would be for the whole experience of guiding (around the museum and down to the olive farm), collecting herbs and... More

We were told by our rep to go and visit the olive farm as we wouldn't regret it, he was right. It was only a 5 minute walk from our hotel (the Mirabello) and for 1.5€ was worth the visit. It was a wonderful insight to how local produce was made before machinery. It's family run, who were friendly and... More

a real insight into old local industries, with a well-stocked reasonably priced shop. if you stay at the Mirrabello hotel it's a 5 min walk and a must-see

I'm so glad we visited. It was only up the road from our hotel and worth a trip. We arrived approximately 10.00am and were the only visitors but were greeted by Abi their friendly and playful little dog! The "tour" cost 1.50 euros. They showed us around the herb garden and explained how the olive oil and wine used to... More
