At least one of your hosts will speak English fluently, but take the opportunity to learn some words in Croatian too.
After two hours of harvesting in a relaxing atmosphere, it is time for lunch and for processing the olives. We shall go then to Olynthia Olive Mill to process the olives. It is an amazing experience to be able to see on the place how extra virgin olive is extracted from the fruit in only in 1 hour, with the help of latest technology.
