Nick and Stavros were awesome! Nick brought to life the tour with a theatrical twist that made it fun and educational. Stavros made great menu recommendations! The overall experience and food were so good. Just wish we could have stayed longer. Plan at least for two hours there.
Biolea is hands down the best olive oil you can get on Crete, perhaps the world, not exaggerating. It's organic, extra virgin, single estate, single vintage, cold extracted, and stone milled. It has 7 times the antioxidants and phenols needed to make a health claim, meaning it is 7 times healthier than even the best evoos! The taste is incredible. The family who owns it is passionate about quality and about the environment. You will never look at olive oil the same way after a trip to Biolea. They recently added a cafe in the gorgeous estate's yard. The food is out of this world. Most of it is sourced from the property which has chickens, goats, and wild herbs, as well as a beautiful garden. The dishes are modern updated Cretan dishes with a twist. Absolutely delicious. Definitely worth the trip into the countryside for this experience.
