Great place to make a drive out to if you're near Chania. About 30 minutes away from the old harbor. Great oil and beautiful grounds. Showed up without an appointment and were able to taste and buy. Worth the trip!

The place is so charming and beautiful. The view with the olive trees is spectacular. The staff was happy to explain how it works, we felt very welcome. Of course, we bought a few olive oil bottles, it tasted so good!

Fantastic organic olive oil producer. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, and told us a very interesting story about their production process. The tasting afterwards was the ice on top of the cake. Highly recommended!

There are free tours every hour. You can find how the oil is made and taste it after. Prices of oil is greater than in a shop. Maybe because of the free tour.
