We had an interesting and informative tour of the olive grove, followed by olive oil tastings and lunch. Two friendly horses and a cat who enjoys eating pasta reside on the premises.

Very interesting tour of olive oil farm. We strolled through the orchard, learning about how olives are grown, and how old the trees are. The tour finishes with an olive oil tasting. The guide, whose name I forget, speaks excellent english.
