We visited on 13 July 2016 and did the guided tour (€3) and a ceramics lesson (€4). It was a fun way to spend a few hours. I would definitely recommend the full tour, our guide was very knowledgeable and is clearly passionate about their farm. The pottery was really fun and we got to keep our pots. As well... More

We took the guided tour and did the cookery course. Both were great - so informative. Costas is very knowledgable and happy to answer any questions about olive oil, Cretan plants and pottery! The shop is marvellous with a fabulous variety of products all of which you can try before you buy. It is small and could easily be missed... More

Not a large visitor centre. We probably should have taken the guided tour to learn more about the industry as the video only provided the bare facts. Good shop with a wide range of products to test.

Chillaxed owner who cares about you and tells his story. We really love that own-produced olive oil.

What a great little find! Fascinating tour, and the cooking course is definitely worth it. Really very reasonable prices, and a great way to spend a few hours out the sun

Book ahead online, the tour drops from 5 to 3 euros. It wasn't necessarily what we expected, as it's much wider than olive oil - beekeeping, herbs and their medicinal properties. But the tour itself was very interesting; the only weakness was that the tasting at the end is just some stuff left out in the back of the shop.

Seeing as we are in Greece, we wanted to experience some of their tradition - olive oil. The part of the traditional family run farm open to the public is small, but it is made excellent by the guided tour. Nick, who took 2 of us on a personal guided tour, was very informative & obviously passionate about the farm,... More

This is a very interesting place to visit. I would highly recommend the tour, the chap was very passionate about his crafts, and was happy to share! We were able to sample the olive oil and other products, which was great, and came home with a bag full!
