Self-drive tour to an olive oil mill in Casabermeja
If you have come to the south of Spain by car and can afford a few spare days to explore the region, don’t miss the chance to visit one of the local olive oil mills during a special Costa Excursions tour. Malaga and the nearest areas are dubbed as the olive paradise, so why not discover how the healthiest oil on earth is made here!
To take advantage of this tour, you will need a free day and transportation of your own (we do also offer an option with transportation and a driver). An olive oil tour offered on our website includes the following:
• visiting an original olive oil mill;
• having a traditional Mediterranean meal;
• discovering the traditions of olive oil production;
• communicating with olive oil experts and craftsman masters;
• enjoying a free olive oil tasting.
The price is really affordable and does not exceed €25 per person, and booking the tour is as simple as making a few clicks on the form below (secured payment).
Your tour will most probably start in the morning. The functioning olive oil mill that you are about to visit is located in a renovated whitewashed farm house that you can easily reach by car. After booking the tour, you will get a map and clear instructions on how to get there from your location. As you reach the mill, the hospitable owners of this olive oil family business will greet you at the entry.
Next, you can enjoy a wonderful breakfast meal in the traditional Mediterranean style, cooked against the backdrop of the picturesque Spanish countryside. Such breakfast normally includes toasts or fresh bread, goat cheese, and olive oil, but you will also be offered a far wider selection of dishes.
The tour then takes you back in time to the original olive oil mill located right there, on the same premises. In addition, you will be invited to walk in the olive groves, and the guide will introduce you to the basics of cultivating olive trees and harvesting olives. This may seem to be a simple problem to tackle, but the local experts will share some revealing secrets that will show you how tough and competitive the pursuit of success can be, if you’re into the olive business.
The old mill is surprisingly rubbing shoulders with a modern, technologically advanced mill complex where you will learn some interesting facts about the production process. These include the technology of pressing the olives, extracting olive oil, and the best ways of storing the ready-made product.
On top of that, you will understand how to distinguish between different kinds of olive oil depending on olive types and ways of processing oil. Our exclusive offer – olive oil tasting of the finest kinds of gourmet oils – will help you get important practical skills.
This tour will be a predominantly walking experience, so if you book an olive oil mill tour in the midst of summer, make sure that your sunscreen products are within easy reach and the shoes are comfortable enough. Armed with a sunscreen and a positive mindset, you will derive pleasure from this visit “on your own” and make it an unforgettable experience.
