Bouzouki, Lute, Tabouras, Baglamas, (plucked string instruments) and Toumberleki (a percussion instrument) are all available for you to try.

Our 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.
