Pyrgos House – Kythira Greece

Olive oil soap workshop

Tasting pure Kythira!

Join our weekly excursions and get inspired by genuine island life.

Pyrgos House is cooperating with Kythirians who love to share their enthusiasm and knowledge about their island. They are working together with nature, either undertaking new challenges or continuing the tradition of their small family businesses started by their parents or grandparents. Artisanal, honest and pure.

What would be nicer than taking home your own olive oil soap? Fotini and Maria will show you how olive oil soap is made. An age-old process, done in a modern way. Fotini and Maria use herbs and flowers from their own garden for the soap preparation. Apart from aroma, the herbs have a healing power as well. During the workshop, Fotini and Maria will tell you everything about it. When the olive oil soap has been put in the moulds, it is time for a relaxed guided walk through Aloïzianika and Aroniadika. Back in the Community House, the soap will now be ready and you will cut your own piece of it. The best aromatic souvenir of your Kythirian holiday.

Thursday, Community House Aloïzianika, 10 am – 1.30 pm

25,00 € per person (tea, sweets, guided walk and your own olive oil soap included)

Information: English spoken, 1 hour easy walk.
