Elaionas in Greek means Olive Grove. “Elaionas Nikou” is a beautiful olive grove estate of 25.000m2, in the embrace of the amazing Gera bay at the South-eastern part of Lesvos island. A shelter of harmony and peacefulness, at the SEAFRONT of the crystal clear waters of the bay. This villa is the biggest of the five villas of Elaionas and the closest to the sea. It is 30-50m far from the other houses, so total privacy is ensured. 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 the olive oil we produce. 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 house we have planted verbena, sage, mint, marjoram, peppermint, basil , etc.. We also have organic vegetable garden for our use and for our customers. So living in the nature and protecting the environment is our way of living.
