The retreat overlooks the sea on to the rugged East side of Kefalonia the peninsula of Fiskardo. Pollution-free, the views are stupendous, and the air and climate are perfect for growing outstanding fruit. Organic olive oil has been produced on Ithaca as long as anyone can remember. The olives are cold-pressed by the local press to preserve all their healthy qualities, and undergo only the one pressing. The acidity level is below 0.1%. The oil is pure and translucent, a beautiful pale green in colour, slightly sweet to the taste because of its low acid content, a little peppery, rich in Vitamin E, and a perfect accompaniment for salads, pasta dishes or dipping in bread.
