The early days

In this blog we would like to share with you some pictures & facts about the early days… the days our family acquired the building that today hosts.. Paragaea.

Olive Oil Factory

In this entire building, back in 1929 the Lekka’s brothers, Grigorios and Elias,  established the first mechanized olive oil factory in the Parga region. The factory operated until 1974 when it was ceased together with all Parga’s olive oil factories.


After 35 years the olive oil factory opened again its doors to us, with all its original factory equipment intact and in good condition.
At this point we can let the pictures to… “talk”


It was a long journey with hard work, consistent efforts, research and planning that brought the building in today’s conditions.

We enjoyed every single moment and we are very proud of it!
