Great wee place for a visit. The ladies here are wonderful. Explaining all about how the olive oil is made. They also do baking with olive oil and spreads so you can taste test everything ! Highly recommend a visit here if on Naxos. I bought their yummy biscuits and olive spread.
The guide made a very good job explaining the whole process of producing olive oil in the good old days. Fun fact: It took about 7kg of olives to produce only one 1kg of olive. Post the tour we had a chance to try the different kinds of olives oils they sell as well as some olive paste. We also tried cake made from olive oil, which was absolutely delicious. It was a cute and light tour.
