A wonderful workshop in the centre of Agios Nikolaos. The smell of handmade olive wood made us go in! Son and father are producing themselves a huge variety of decorative and usable products. Definitely worth a visit!

As soon as you get in, you're gonna smell the beutiful smell of the olive wood. Then you go down the wooden stairs simply amazed by the unique pieces of art around you. Olive Trees, Boats, Animals remind you how close to nature you are..
