Olives, Olive Trees and Olive Oil

Now the olive trees immediately around my house have been picked life has resumed its peacefulness. The walnut trees are practically bare now, so no more crispy leaves falling like footsteps.







Last week I went to the only olive oil factory in Martos that still presses the olives in the traditional method. It´s a small factory and the press only runs for a couple of weeks in late December.

Come and stay in our holiday home and I´ll take you on a tour.
