And excellent day out, visited the olive oil mill first, very interesting!!! Here you have a sample of food produced by the farmer. This was excellent, wine also included. The small town of Ston was also very interesting and the seafood platter at Mali Ston was also good. Well worth the money

Great

The visit to the mill was very interesting, the tasting of oil and local products was very good, and in a very beautiful setting, on the terrace of a family farm with a view of the immense garden and the bay in the background. In the afternoon, the tasting of fish and seafood was plentiful, there were mussels, grilled fish, a fish pâté and salad. There was the possibility of tasting oysters, at an additional cost.
