If you want experience this great Greek tradition, then come to Mani and join us for one Olive-Picking-Week in the autumn!
An olive picking day starts with a good breakfast in the morning. Then you’ll be transported to a romantic olive grove with trees which are often more than a hundred years old. The nets are neatly spread under the trees and then the picking starts. We pick the traditional way, with a so called olive comb. No noisy machines are being used, so you can fully enjoy the peaceful environment.
Our beautiful olive groves are spread around the island. 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.
