Vad du kommer att göra

After a long day on the beach, don’t miss a hidden gem in the heart of the traditional village of Makri: the refreshing little garden of Calypso. Relax in the shade of the old vine, sipping a refreshment and tasting a rare, organic extra virgin olive oil and olive products, made of the local indigenous variety of Makri. Our meze (tapas) style dishes accompanying the tasting will not disappoint you.

The olive oil of Makri is a newly designated PDO product, made of olives of the local variety harvested only in our village. Just like champagne or parmesan cheese. We will start with a stroll through the ancient Calypso olive groves and a visit to the renowned Cyclops cave (1 hour), walking through a landscape dotted by local herbs, bird songs and prehistoric remnants to enjoy stunning views of the sun falling into the Thracian Sea. You will feel the energy of thousand-year old trees, while learning about organic farming and our work with the land and biodiversity.

The tour ends in the garden of our renovated 120 years old cottage house. You will meet the producers of an award-winning organic extra virgin olive oil, and will hear about the story of grandma Calypso, while learning all you need to know about good olive oil. You will leave our garden with memories of authentic hospitality, new friends, but also with our unique olive oil and olive products available on a special disco

I am a PhD in ethnobotany, passionate about organic farming, good food and the exploration of biodiversity. These passions have inspired me to travel the world, visiting organic farmers and tasting their products. With this background, as a fourth generation olive farmer, I helped my family create Calypso Organic Single-Varietal Extra Virgin Olive Oil. We combine traditional harvesting methods with state-of-the-art innovation in olive oil: from the soil, to taking care of our trees and… your taste buds.

Having spoken about our work with the ancient olive variety of Makri on the BBC, TEDx, Slow Food and university lectures, I would be really happy to welcome you to our village and share my knowledge about our land and the unique organic taste quality of Calypso.
