  • A family museum, worth a stop. A history of olive presses on the island, the family pride is evident. Olive oil tasting, small cafe on site. Purchased several bottles at a decent price.

  • Must come here when in Naxos! Great small tour of original olive oil process, and it's free. Samples of their delicious olives, olive oils and spreads. The family that runs the museum and store could not be nicer! We bought some great olives, oil and spreads.
  • It is a lovely place where you can buy olive oils and soaps. They allow you to do a tasting of the olives, the oils and spreads. Just splendid!
  • This is a MUST! An absolute gem of a place. We walked in and a woman showed us her families old olive oil farming equipment, explaining each part of the process. Afterwards, we were offered a plethora of samples (olive oil cake, dips, olives) and went home with a bag full of family made Naxian olive oil. Overall a casual but very meaningful stop on our trip :)
  • A must visit on Naxos. Set in an old church, a small olive museum and shop. The produce is all by itself worth the travel. Staff are incredibly friendly. Don't not go.
  • Interesting for the traditional and historical point of view. The owner was a perfect guide to explain the process of oil pressing. Unfortunately we could not see the best olive oil coming out of the modern press. Outlet proposes a wide variety of interesting products.
