The Olive Oil Experience

Live the agricultural life of West Crete.

If you want to learn the history and traditions of Crete, then you have to experience the olive harvest and olive oil production.

The olive tree and olive oil are as old as the history of this place. From Homer’s references up until today, olive oil has had a profound role in the history of Crete.

The unique climate of the region, but also the soil conditions favor olive growing and rightfully make it the best olive oil in the world.

A walk in the olive groves of western Crete is enough to understand why olive oil is considered to be the "liquid gold" of Cretan diet.

Every stage, from the collection of the olives, up until the production of olive oil at the presses, is an unforgettable personal experience of Cretan agricultural life and hospitality.

It’s a unique journey into the culinary customs of this magical place that you will surely remember for the rest of your life.
