BIO GARDEN OF OLIVE TREES Just 90 minutes from Athens, near the ancient theatre of Epidaurus in Ligourio and within a vast olive grove, are situated the modern facilities of "Melas Olive Oil Domain – Gaea of Epidaurus". Visit and enjoy a carefree stroll among nature along with a visit with tour in the olive oil factory facilities. In the MELAS estate one can take a walk through the organic olive grove at times and seasons and been shown the cultivation activities of olive trees and harvest of the fruit of the olive. Just 3 km from the sanctuary of Asclepius and the globally famous theatre of Epidaurus, among the region's remarkable Byzantine monuments and monasteries and scattered antiquities, next to the Museum of Natural History and traditional tavernas, in the heart of a landscape with tame relief decorated by the silver sheens of the olive groves, the family-owned olive oil domain MELAS opens its doors to visitors and makes them travel the paths of civilization and mysteries of the olive tree. Schools, scientists, producers, participants, alternative tourists, etc. can enjoy the tour in the production areas of olive oil, stroll through the organic olive grove, enjoy an educational presentation with modern audio-visual means, taste exquisite dishes of olives and olive oil, be supplied from our retail store the oil products of their choice ... even cosmetics based on organic extra virgin olive oil "MELAS". The visit lasts approximately one hour and the tour takes place in Greek, English, French and German. During the harvest period, our business provides specifically for schools children's participation in the harvesting and production of oil from the olives they have picked. The visit schedule operates throughout the year and is adjusted according to the groups’ interests.
