We have been growing olives and producing top quality organic olive oil on our family farm on Naxos for 30 years. We cultivate our trees on traditional stone terraces and water them with hand dug channels. Guests will learn all about olive cultivation , and participate in watering, pruning, repairing dry stone wall terraces and harvesting in the Autumn. There are tasks all year round so don't be sad if you can't come at harvest time.
Our quest for perfection has resulted in our joining the "Aristoil" elite producers of olive oil in Greece. All of our olive oil production is monitored for quality by the University of Athens Department of Pharmacognosy. This year's crop earned the Silver Standard for high phenolic olive oil at the Olympia Health and Nutrition Awards.

Our tour of the Mili olive farm was spectacular. The landscape and location are gorgeous - you feel like you are let in on a secret part of Naxos. Sophia's English was impeccable, which was great because she explained so much about the details of olive farming. We learned so much about the farming process from tree care to irrigation to production... it was completely comprehensive and yet totally intimate. I really appreciated how many snacks Costa retrieved for us from the fruit trees along the way! We had grapes, pomegranates, figs, and they even picked up jasmine sprigs. The olive oil they gifted us at the end is extremely high quality, and it feels so special having met the people who produced it. I highly recommend this experience!

This experience will forever be one of those days that will resonate throughout my life. Of course the variables are different for every person, but the time I shared with Sophia, Kosta, and Eleni was pure magic. Sophia: a deeply educated intellectually and spiritually which was evident in conversation and book choices on her bookshelves. Kosta: a kind man with a heart of gold, patient to share his knowledge and deeply proud of his family trade. Eleni: firecracker of intellect, fiercely loyal, gratitude flowing in her every word, and sprinkling sarcasm in a generalist way. These gems of people welcomed me and allowed me to be me. They accepted my core true self and showed me theres while inviting me to learn the ancient arts of the olive trade. As I mentioned above, each person and their personality will contribute to your experience. Maybe you’ll have a similar one, maybe not. I was able to help Kosta sift olives and bag olives from the branches he had cut. Sophia explained to me the ancient history of olives and the different varietals. She took me to places I didn’t expect to go to like ancient stone carvings that have been left alone and not seen by many tourists for thousands of years. Eleni had me laughing til my cheeks nearly hurt, all while being a conduit between the Ancient Greek ways I was learning and the modern day world we reside in. We pressed olives and ate the most neon green olive oil I’ve seen in my life. We ate fish and bread and made custom dishes together. We went out for more dinner and conversations of economics and politics and family values. I’m forever grateful for the times shared. I’ll stress that I don’t know what experience you’ll have with them but if you bring your core self and let your guards down... you might have one of the best experiences of your life unfold.

My girlfriend and I strongly recommend this activity for individuals traveling to Naxos. It provided a unique opportunity to see and learn about an important element of Greek and Mediterranean culture. Both Costas and Sophia were wonderful hosts who were very informative and knowledgeable. Definitely one of the most enjoyable AirBnB experiences that we have participated in! An all around “A+” !

One of the most unique and enjoyable Airbnb adventures my partner and I have been able to enjoy. Sophia and Costas are incredibly interesting, knowledgeable and warm individuals who truly made our experience one to remember. So many complexities in the end to end process - who would have known! Highly recommend this gem in the island of Naxos. A must do!

Finally we could hear a donkey due to the traditional way of agriculture around the olive trees. We had the best experience, eating winter figs, listening to a wealth of knowledge and having hands on experience of picking olives amongst other things like rebuilding a small stone wall and preparing olives for brining. The olive tasting was very special and the provided bread, olives and feta so local and delicious. We left with a bottle of their magnificent olive oil and great smiles. We really felt it was a beautiful experience that nourished the soul.

This was the highlight of our trip to Naxos and it was fabulous. Our 8 year old enjoyed digging water channels and feeding donkeys! Sophia and Costa are passionate about what they do and that made the afternoon so very special. If you love olive oil, understanding the nuances of production and tasting will make you enjoy it even more. I would recommend this immersive experience to anyone keen on knowing about what it takes to make a gourmet product, people with kids or anyone who likes to explore something unique . Their oils are fantastic too!!

Hvað þarf að taka með

The terrain is rough with stone steps connecting the terraces, so you need good non slip walking shoes and if you have stability issues a walking stick is recommended. In summer a hat will be welcome. .
