It is the ideal backdrop to unravel the history, tradition and ancient myths of this historical place. The owners will welcome you with a homemade Greek local breakfast and the olive experience is enriched with a video presentation about the history of olive and olive oil! - Part 2: Olive Harvest or Olive Grove Olive harvest (available October - November) – You’ll walk through the olive trees and meet local families as they harvest their own trees. You’ll enjoy the experience of a lifetime either by handpicking olives and placing them directly in a basket or by picking them using a net.

During your walk, you’ll get acquainted with different varieties of olive trees in all shapes and of all ages. - Part 3: Olive Oil Tasting (all year round) What follows is an interactive olive oil tasting workshop by an olive oil lover! The tasting session includes 3 different varieties of extra virgin olive oil, focusing on sensory tasting, defects and positive traits. Discover also the main principles of food pairing and find out which olive oil you like most! - Part 4: Light lunch or full local lunch (optional) Get a taste of traditional, local food, such as lalagia (savoury or sweet looped ribbons of dough), pasto (cured pork), Kalamata olives, or enjoy a homemade full local lunch!
