Brilliant place, loved visiting it! The farm is beautiful, with mulberry and pomegranate trees, and lots of lovely flowers. Joanna was there to welcome us, and we were lucky to have an interesting tour and a really good chat; she explained the whole process and the evolution of olive oil making through ages in a brilliant and fun way. We've seen the old contraptions as well as the new machinery and we've learned a lot. Our kids had a blast, too, as they were allowed on the swing and they had fresh mulberries from the tree.The olive oil is yummy and very reasonably priced, wish we'd bought more. Totally recommend as an experience!

Location was on a touristic route. The guide (older crancky lady) was kind of rude and did not let us feel welcome. The tour was basic, not much additional information provided.

We were given a tour of the interesting process of olive oil making by Joanne who was so welcoming. Set in a picturesque position, so serene, worth the drive! Saw the very old machinery used in the process. Joanne was so welcoming. Impressed by the eco friendly process used today. Up to date equipment used in the picking and pressing process for me was enlightening.

Wife and I always bring home olive oil and cheese to enjoy and reminisce of favorite visits and trips. Stop here! Wonder wonder family, tour, and naturally olive oil! Yes, this is the oil that has returned to CA. Exceptional!! Don't forget to stop in the village for lunch at the tavern.

We were passing by for lunch and saw the factory wasn’t far so decided to stop by. We were greeted by Markella who showed us the history of their farm (in perfect English). We met her lovely mother Joanna who told us about the harvest! Lovely olive oil and olive oil products. The tour was brief but it’s the kind of place you want to stay and hangout with the host(s)!

O.M.G. we visited the Lyrakis family farm the day before and it was a much better experience. The shop had a variety of products we sampled and purchased. Relly not much to see.

The visit with the owner is very interesting! She is so nice and makes you feel her enthusiasm like if it’s the first visit she made.
Of course you can shop olive oil (amazing) and different products.
I highly recommend this place.

Great farm. The owner was super nice and gave our group an interesting tour on historical and modern olive oil production. We had a small oil tasting. The product is of exceptional quality and very reasonably priced.
A must stop when traveling the area.
