Everyone enjoyed the day a lot and I'm impressed by Christian's dedication to sustainability and ambition... More

There is a reason for the high score. This "attraction" doesn't compare to anything at Malta. Very quiet, you walk around at the farm and get a knowledge of how they do farming in Malta (Guided tour if you like). If you are lucky you might do som olive oil tasting (that was a new one), and get some local... More

I presented at a workshop hosted at Tan-Nixxiegħa. It was an excellent location (even if we had to weigh down paperwork to stop it blowing away!). A really nice change to the usual air-conditioned hotel room. The views are stunning, the weather was perfect and the hosting exceptional. After the morning presentation we enjoyed olive oil tasting and a traditional... More

I participated in the Olive grove experience. A very informative and interesting tour. I loved the olive oil tasting and most of all I loved the home-made marmalade. Christian and Jeanette were our hosts and I could not have asked for better hosts. Keep up the good work.

We booked trying to go off the beaten track and we certainly did. Being mediterranean myself, the secrets of wine and olive oil were not a surprise, but we had a lovely morning in a relaxed environment with lovely views.

Jeanette's and Christian's passion for this venture is evident and impressed us. Obviously there is a whole team to whom we wish the very best of climate conditions and luck. Thanks for a very informative morning in the fresh air.
