Do you fancy working with friends outside in the sunshine and finding out all about Olives, their picking, processing and getting to take some home? This is the holiday for you.

It comprises three nights on the farm, with time off for good behaviour,  picking olives in the traditional way and working in the fresh air.  You get to see and be involved with the whole process visit the mill and do some taste testing with locals and expert ex-pats. You will also get to take home a few litres of the oil you helped to make.
