Description

“Perivoli sti Vari” (The Orchard in Vari) is a farm-to-fork restaurant on the outskirts of Athens.

Situated right in the middle of a small urban farm, it gives city dwellers the opportunity to have daily contact with nature and to enjoy healthy food prepared from our field.

Our seasonal vegetables (certified organic by TUV Austria) are grown using regenerative practices (permaculture) that we harvest daily. Our chef then uses them together with the produce of small local producers to create delightful, healthy meals in season. Our chickens provide the eggs for wonderful breakfasts, and every winter our olives are fed into a small olive press to yield extra virgin, cold-pressed olive oil.

Tour and Tasting

While strolling through our olive grove, visitors learn about the olive tree, explore different varieties of olives, and gain an understanding of its unique position in Mediterranean history and culture. The tour continues to our small-scale, state-of-the-art cold extraction olive press, where participants discover the production process of extra virgin olive oil, including its challenges and the secrets to achieving superior quality. Participants then have the opportunity to experience three different extra-virgin olive oils and learn how to distinguish their fruity, bitter, and spicy aromas. 

We suggest concluding the experience with an à la carte meal at our farm-to-table restaurant, where you can taste the bountiful harvest from our very own plots (meal not included in the price of the activity – please calculate an extra hour).
