On the edge of a stunning, mountainous national park, the property sits in a large river valley overlooking agricultural land and in the far distance, the white lakeside village of Bornos.

They offer a menu of cold-pressed organic juices, scrumptious smoothies, delicious snacks, Kombucha, and delicious health-conscious hot drinks such as spicy Indian Chai, Vegan bulletproof coffee, Ceremonial cacao, Mocacao, and the personal favorite, Golden Milk, which contains a super-healthy blend of exotic spices. Wine by the glass and artisanal beer bears are also available.
They harvest olives in late October. They usually enlist a few locals to help with this, as it is quite skilled labor. The trees must be pruned every year, which is hard work with so many trees and involves skillful use of a chainsaw. Harvesting the olives involves shaking the trees onto a tarpaulin and also hand-picking, the way it has been done for thousands of years.
After shaking the olives off the trees, they need to clean them and then either soak them in brine or take them to Zahara de la Sierra where they get them milled. In harvesting season, when you go to the olive mill, you need to wait in line. You are given a number, like in a busy office, and have to wait for your number to be called. They will call you half an hour before your turn and in the harvest season, the mill works 24 hours, so you might be called up in the middle of the night.
After your olives are milled with big grindstones, you are given a number of huge containers of olive oil. These containers contain ample olive oil to last the kitchen the whole year and also allow them to sell some to guests in the shop, with their own label designed by Rebecca, the artist and founder of Yoga Will Save the World.
Suryalila olive oil is nutty and sweet and bitter at the same time and has a deep gold color with a greenish hue. They are experimenting with different kinds of marinade to flavor the olives for eating. It’s possible to add chili and garlic and peppers and different herbs and they are still looking for that perfect recipe.
