Olive harvesting week

Olive harvesting in November
Harvesting olives is one of Messinia’s most enduring agricultural and culinary traditions.
We embrace this age-old tradition of olive harvesting, an experience that can only be learned first-hand and has been part of the daily lives of the people of Messinia for centuries.
If you want to experience this great Greek tradition, then come one week in November to Methoni and join us for one olive-picking-week!
The picking, pressing and bottling takes place within 24 hours in our village.
We will organize during your stay:
- one olive harvesting day with local experts
- a visit to the pressing factory in our village
- a visit to the bottling company including tasting
- you will receive your own bottles of extra virgin olive oil to take home
The olive groves are spread around our region. Almost all of them in the middle of nature, sometimes nearby a traditional village but also close to the sea with fantastic views. Of course coffee and a tasteful lunch in the grove are provided.
Would you like to experience the olive harvesting process? You are more then welcome in November this year.
