Elaionas in Greek means Olive Grove. The farm is certified organic and produces high quality olive oil. Many of the olive trees are over 200 years old and are themselves artistic natural sculptures.
In the estate there are also almond, fig, apricot, quince and other fruit trees, that give special flavour to olive oil.
Walking around, in the farm, you will be fascinated by the smell of wild herbs like oregano, thyme, rosemary, etc.. In the gardens of the houses we have planted verbena, sage, mint, marjoram, peppermint, basil , etc.. We also have organic vegetable garden for our use and for our customers.

The North East Aegean Islands- Greece
The North East Aegean islands consist of the islands of Samos, Chios, Ikaria, Fournoi, Oinousses, Psara, Lesbos, Agios Efstratios and Limnos.

Wonderful laced beaches with clear waters, hospitable inhabitants and natural beauty will offer you unforgettable moments and memories to cherish forever.
You can visit Archaeological museums, castles, monasteries and churches that will take you back on a magical journey through time.
The North Aegean Islands were the gateway connecting the Hellenism of Minor Asia with Greece.
There is history dating back to the ancient years, and for centuries, the North Aegean Islands were centres of economic and cultural growth.
Chios is an island in the North East Aegean that is very popular with travellers from all over the world. Chios offers visitors a very picturesque and relaxing setting in which to enjoy authentic Greek island holidays.
The island of Samos, the most Eastern of the islands, is one that is perfect to visit throughout the year. Samos is well catered for tourism, and has a great selection of popular destinations where one can enjoy a range of holidays and experiences.
In the North East Aegean Islands you will find traditional but also a cosmopolitan life that all combine perfectly to play a part is giving it's visitors wonderful holidays.
Lesvos or Lesbos is the third largest island of Greece and has a long history that goes back more than 3.000 years. It has been the birthplace of famous people, such as the poets Sappho and Alcaeos, Arion the Guitarist, and Pittacus, one of the seven wise men of ancient Greece. A tradition that even continues today and gives the island that distinctive atmosphere which makes it so different from the rest.
Rich in olives and fish, the island has an economic balance rare in the Aegean and because of its relative prosperity the island is very easy for travelers to reach even in the quiet months of winter. By air, one can get to Lesvos from Athens five times a day and from Salonica seven times a week. By Ferry-boat, one can reach Lesvos every day from Piraeus, and from Salonica on a less frequent schedule.
Mytilene is the capital of the island and has a population of 30,000 people. This is about one third of the total population of the island. It is built amphitheatrically around its well preserved Byzantine Castle. Not very far from there, on the north-east side of town, one can find the Hellenistic Theatre with its superb acoustics and capacity of 10,000 people. Further in the suburb of Varia one can visit the Theophilos Museum.
Twelve kilometers from Mytilene, near the town of Moria, one can visit the Roman Aqueduct that was built in the second century AD.
Going further up north by the east coast, thru a series of beautiful little villages one will arrive in the town of Mantamados, famous for its cheeses and the fine pottery. The next stop will be Skala Sikaminias, one of the most charming fishing villages one would ever see.
And then, at the northest point of the island one will find the picturesque village of Mithymna (also known as Molivos), with its mediaeval castle and the traditional architecture. Molivos is also the islands best known resort. By some it has been called "the closed place to paradise, on earth". The association with Arts is appropriate enough, for it was here in Mithymna that the head of Orpheus is said to have been washed ashore after his dismemberment of the Thracian women. Another mythical citizen of Mithymna was the lyric poet and musician Arion. It has been said that he has been saved by the music-loving dolphin.
Only a short distance of 5 Km SW of Molivos the village of Petra can be found. Petra has one of the best sandy beaches of the island.
Again further south the village of Agia Paraskevi is situated. This village has a lot of old mansions and is known for the Bull Festival that has been celebrated since more than two hundred years. Near the village lay ruins of an ancient temple of Napaios Apollo and the ruins of an Ionian temple dated from the 3rd century BC. This temple was dedicated to Zeus, Hera and Dionysos.
In the island's center, not far from Agia Paraskevi, lays the modern town Kalloni. It is famous for its sardines which are caught in the nearby bay called the Gulf of Kalloni. On this gulf one will also find the popular summer resort Skala Kalloni with its beautiful sandy beaches.
Also near the center of the island another well known town is Agiassos. This town is famous for its pottery. Going further south again we reach the towns of Plomari and Vatera which have the most superb beaches of the island.
At the western tip of Lesvos, Sigri is a pretty fishing village with a nice little beach and a castle that goes back to the 18th century. Not far from there lies the Petrified Forest, dating back fifteen million years.
Finally, not far from Sigri, one will find the town of Eressos. Eressos has been the birth place of Sappho and Theoprastos. Its port, Skala Eressos, is a famous resort with a magnificent beach.
Lesvos, as it can be seen from its classical history, its abundance of poets, musicians, philosophers and lawgivers, was one of the great cultural centers of the Greek world. It was second perhaps only to Athens, in its influence if not in its power.
As a place for a holiday, for a rest or for quiet work, Lesvos is HARD to BETTER. It is big enough to permit that change of scene so necessary if one is to avoid "island claustrophobia". It has a further advantage that it is easy from here to organize a trip to visit Troy or to explore the coastline of ancient Ionia.
Elaionas Nikou is 7km far from Mytilini, the capital of the island, where the visitor can do shopping, visit museums (archaeological, Theophilos and Teriade modern art), churches, the old city and the traditional market, the old harbour, the medieval castle, and to have a delicious lunch in a fish tavern. In the evening one can have a romantic dinner in a restaurant and then continue with a cocktail in a beach-bar. For swimming, close to the city, one can go to Haramida beach, or Agios Ermogenis. Also, in 4km from Elaionas, one can visit the hot spring Therma, have a hot bath and perhaps massage. In small distance from Elaionas there are a lot of excellent fish taverns, that serve the traditional plates of Lesvos. Within approx. half an hour from Elaionas, one can visit very beautiful traditional villages and enjoy the rich nature of the island that changes from place to place.
