We visited with my elderly grandmother whilst with a excursion company. The visit was very informative and a great way to escape the searing heat of the day for a couple of hours. Everyone is very polite and they cant wait to give you samples at the end.
The produce in there shop is very reasonable (very un english!) and we came home with a ridiculous amount of olive oil soap! oh and oil

We enjoyed it so much, we visited it a second time.

If you enjoy olive oil in your diet or your just curious what all the fuss is about when others talk about it, then this is for you. Whether you're looking for the history, the economics or the "how it's made" then the tour and the Q&A should leave you in little doubt. Covering everything that most people would ask but also some very interesting anecdotes (which I won't spoil here).

After the tour you also have the pleasure of the tasting session revolving around the different olive products and even a little of the local wine (be careful, it's strong stuff).

Thoroughly recommended.

Warmly welcomed by Nicos who gave us an interesting tour and talk on the history and operation of the factory.

What a great place....
I had no idea how or where olive oil came from...or even how it's made..
From our first step into the factory we where explained the full process.
Really interesting and fun worth the visit.
Also bought 2 cans of olive oil for only 4.5€ each.
They say a teaspoon of olive oil a day keeps the doctor alway.

Went her in August as part of a larger tour. Popped back again in November to see the Olives being pressed. Fascinating process and gorgeous first press oil. Lovely.
