Fantastic organic olive oil producer. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, and told us a very interesting story about their production process. The tasting afterwards was the ice on top of the cake. Highly recommended!

There are free tours every hour. You can find how the oil is made and taste it after. Prices of oil is greater than in a shop. Maybe because of the free tour.

It is worth visiting and buying super olive oil. We came completely by accident and it was shot in 10. Super quality oil. Great presentation. View from the building to the beauty of nature and huge expanses of olive trees.

A great family owned mill that explains very clearly the true benefits of olive oils and the difference between industrial and traditional production. A great finale with a tasting of the products. A must visit if you are in West Crete. Merci M. George PS:...More

We’ve been here two years ago and got the tour, and some olive oil. Now we where here again, to buy some oil. Still the same welcoming atmosphere, still a very nice staff and still the best oil in Greece! Always worth the visit ☺️

We went for the 11am tour which was really enjoyable. Very informative and a lovely setting to taste some olive oil. A small family run business, and the tour guide was very knowledgable and enthusiastic. Tour was on the short side, but still a nice...More
