HARVESTING OUR OLIVE TREES.

Our guests have asked us in the summer many times, how olive oil is made in the winter. Yesterday dawned bright and clear in Paros, a perfect day for picking olives, so for two days we have harvested our olives together with family & friends.  With great pleasure, we produced again our high quality and tasty olive-oil, our “early harvest, cold pressed, extra virgin” olive oil.

Each year has a different olive produce, this year is not such a good year, but the final product is really good! You will taste our olive-oil, on the table for your next summer!

Some of our olive grove is around Margarita Studios in Ambelas and in the area of Marmara village, where we have 40 olive trees.

this hotel is nice and clean ,the hostess Stella is very friendly ;

 relaxing by the pool is beautiful ;

 if you don’t want to go out at nigth, you can eat there , the restaurant is just close to the pool;

 i is a really beautiful place to stay ; but you need a car or a scooter to drive around the island , because ther e are only 3 buses a day to AMBELAS ;
the greek taverns along the sea are also great to have dinner or lunch

 : it ‘s a lot cheaper and quieter than in Naoussa

Margarita Studios: Traveller Reviews

Margarita Studios ruhig gelegen und doch nah beim Geschehen in Naousse – ca. 2,5 km

Im Mai, als Paros in voller Blüte stand, bewohnten wir eine wunderschöne Suite bei Margarita Studios. Es war alles blitzsauber, das Personal sehr freundlich und aufmerksam. Es gab täglich frische Handtücher und die Bettwäsche wurde auch jeden 2. Tag gewechselt.
Das Frühstücksbuffet war sehr üppig, es gab einfach alles, auch Sonderwünsche wurden erfüllt.
Die Anlage ist sehr schön angelegt und hat einen ganz tollen, großen Pool.
In der hauseigenen Taverne haben wir uns des öfteren mit typisch griechischen Köstlichkeiten und dem hervorragenden parischen Rotwein verwöhnen lassen.
Es werden auf Wunsch Kochkurse gemacht, bei denen es recht lustig zugeht.
In der Nähe sind 3 schöne Strände, auch ein Reitstall / Schule sowie ein Tao’s – Center.
Im Ortskern (ca. 300 m) sind ein paar sehr gemütliche Tavernen, auch eine Einkaufsmöglichkeit ist vorhanden.
Nach Naoussa, dem wichtigsten Ort auf Paros, sind es nur ca. 2,5 km.
Alles in Allem hatten wir unvergeßliche Tage bei Margarita Studios und der Abschied von Stella, der liebenswürdigen Chefin und ihrem Personal, fiel uns sehr schwer. Wir werden nächstes Jahr sicher wieder kommen!

It’s not easy being green but we care to be at Margarita studios , as green as we can

We Care in Margarita studios,in the fishing village of Ambelas on Paros island, has to do with caring about what is going on – even outside our hotel door. We don’t say we are perfect but it has to do with opening our eyes and becoming involved in the world around us.

What we do
 
Our organic waste, as it has been done for centuries in our island, are collected and given to the neighbouring farms. Also, glass bottles are always refilled with wine, vinegar or olive oil and jars are used for our home made jams, or our olives.
Drinks from the restaurant are served in glass bottles (e.g. beer) or aluminium cans (soft drinks), which can be recycled.
Hotel staff collects all types of paper, plastic and glass from the rooms and from the restaurant and empty it in the blue bins, provided by the Municipality. Thankfully an organized recycle program finally started in the island of Paros in 2008.
Batteries from TV controls, A/C remote controls are collected and handed in once a month at recycling points in Paroikia.
All laundry that is done at the hotel is dried out in the sun, without use of dryers.
Key entry systems cards have been installed to hotel rooms. When guests leave the rooms, electricity close up.
All external lights have been replaced with low energy ones and timers have been installed to decrease the energy consumed.
Our hot water is solar heated.
In our land we are blessed with natural underground water well, but during summer we do take measures and also strongly encourage clients to save water. The water system was designed so that part of our grey water and the water from the showers of the pool can be reused for the garden.
We have an underground rainwater collecting system. We water our trees, vegetable gardens and flowers with this.
We grow our own organic herbs, olives, some fruits and vegetables, and we use whatever is in season in the preparation of meals.
At our restaurant we use our own olive oil for cooking and all our food is seasonable as possible. The kitchen oil is also collected for recycling
