Biolea is a unique experience for anybody visiting Chania. The olive mill is a pioneering enterprise that comprises high technology with very traditional methods for the production of gold liquid, not just olive oil.
Don't miss the opportunity to enjoy the drive through the Cretan land and the magnificent location of the Olive mil.
Don't forget to buy olive oil with lemon taste
Last but not least the hospitable welcome of the Dimitriadis Family who will guide you through the mills and the secrets of olive oil production.

Fascinating insight into olive oil. All the terms and processes demystified in a very entertaining way. Even the teenage children enjoyed it and rated it as a holiday highlight.

We can also only echo the good previous reviews! It was really informative, very friendly and the olive oil to be tasted was very tasty, so we were happy to buy some for ourselves and our friends! It didn't feel like a tourist event or even a sales event at all and you weren't pushed into anything.

We sent Biolea an e-mail one morning this week and they accommodated us with a tour at noon. It was one of the best tours we have taken in Europe. The tour guide (English first language) was phenomenal! So animated and informative! We came away with a whole new understanding of olive processing and olive oils. The cold pressed EVOO was delicious and very reasonably priced! Although we bought some oil we would have been happy to pay for the tour as well (it was free!) as it was so good! We definitely recommend adding Astrikas Estate Biolea to your “must go” list for Crete!

We have not had many sightseeing plans for this week of holiday hoping to catch as much sun as possible, however the weather was not very kind to us.
We had rented car and decided to explore the countryside and happened to pass the Biolea estate. We did not have the reservation, however were kindly accommodated with the next running tour.
I have to admit that the tour guide gave us slightly bossy and very animated impression at the beginning, however we were totally in awe with her at the end of the tour!
Her enthusiasm and energy is contagious! The tour was absolutely free, but they should really introduce the charge as it was not ordinary “sell for” guidance, it was art of performance with lots of information!
The estate itself is stunning! Lots of beautiful photos to remind about great time.
We truly enjoyed our visit to estate!

After I got over the initial shock of the boisterous & blunt tour guide (& owner) I had a marvelous time. I learned so much, the area is beautiful and the olive oil is fabulous! So worth the effort to make a reservation for a tour.

We were part of a guided tour and we stopped off here. We were given an amazing talk and video as the production had not started yet, too early in the year. We were shown the machinery they used to mill their olives to produce their olive oil . We had a tasting which was delicious and of course we bought some olive oil!!
Thank you .

It started off already at the parking with an amazing view over the valley full of olive trees and the sea in the back. After a very warm welcome we had a really informative and very funny tour. The way it was presented I am sure I will remember forever what to look for when I want to buy a good oliv oil !
Also the possibility to taste the different products at the end but with absolutely no pressure to purchase anything was great ! But after having learned how it’s produce and the fact that prices are more than fair for such high quality products, we took several bottles as souvenirs for friends and relatives.
Unfortunately we did not have time to stay even longer but it must be lovely to sit for a while in the cafe-bar in same building enjoy the beautiful view.

The factory is very interesting and the olive oil is heavenly. Our guide was very cool and wonderful and we had a great time with her. The bartender (with the moustache) was incredibly friendly and nice. We even made a photo with him :) They have one of most beautiful cat i ever seen and a very good coffee. The place and the people are from heaven...

We had the best time at Astrikas Estate. Our lovely tour guide gave us a wonderful tour where we genuinely learned many things we'll take back home with us. The grounds are gorgeous. You must eat lunch at the restaurant on the terrace. Everything we had was beyond delicious - one of our culinary highlights from 3 weeks in Greece. Thank you to the two talented and welcoming brothers running the kitchen! Go here!!
