Hippocrates, the great Greek physican, father of medicine, wisely said: "Let food be your medicine, and medicine be your food".
The countryside of Pylos and it's area is abundant with wild herbs carpeting the landscape, giving the air, an aroma unique to Greece.
Our journey starts with a 30 min cross-country ride within landscapes which gave birth to the herbs. The same herbs, which were gathered thousands of years ago in Ancient Greece; and their uses have remained unchanged.
Reaching our destination, a local company proud of its high quality olive oil and herbs, you'll be introduced to the ancient and modern methods of producing the Greek liquid gold: the exta virgin olive oil.
You will have the chance to learn how to distingwish and select a good olive oil and also to taste it.
You can walk around the botanical garden, enjoying the nature, while learning the medicinal uses of Greek herbs. Aromatic oils of famus Greek oregano, wild Greek sage or marjoram and a variety of Mediterranean trees take the senses to a higher level.
