Learn about the family tradition of making olive oil the natural, organic way at Astrikas Estate Biolea, located on a farm in the Greek countryside. Join an organized tour led by one of the family members and hear the story that dates back to the 1800s. Today, the factory represents one of the few in the country that use a stone mill rather than the high-tech systems for processing olives. Outside, the shimmering groves stand surrounded by cliffs, with the sea in the distance.

  • A must see on any tour in the west of Crete. We got a really good tour of the factory even though we did not book a tour upfront. We could wait for the next tour under their olive trees and enjoy the area. The tour got all you need. It is funny and informative. Great way to learn about olive oil production. The tasting afterwards allowed to try their delicious oil.
  • Wow! What a good visit ! The lady who gave us the tour was really interesting and funny. She knows her subject very well and you could tell that she loves her work! We really appreciate it. Thank you!
