This was an outstanding experience during our recent visit to Crete.From the grand vista, to the extremely informative tour by Chloe, showing how the Family had adapted the traditional stone milling of olives to produce cold pressed organic olive oil, and finally topped off by the olive oil tasting, which was sensational.

This tour was filled with a wealth of information about olive oil. We also left with several bottles of the oil after having a sampling. The location is gorgeous and the owner was very pleasant and knowledgeable. It is definitely worth the trip!

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!
