At Patounis Soap Factory, you'll learn that not all soaps are created equal. In continuous operation since the 19th century, the factory uses traditional production methods to create a line of pure olive soaps. A living reminder that family-run, traditional businesses can survive in the modern world and thrive thanks to exports, the factory still features tools and equipment from the 1890s. In the summer, you can take a free guided tour of the premises to see the production process and learn about this important local industry. Check the website for more info and opening hours.

A lovely shop in San Rocco Square where you can buy different kinds of natural soap made from Olive oil. We love the green soap and soap flakes. more »
Must visit glimpse into the past of how soap used to be - and in this case still is - made. Great little shop out the front selling the freshly handmade soaps and some other quality items, great for gifts not the usual tourist rubbish tat! Not the easiest to spot, don’t be surprised if you walk passed a couple of times! Guided tours at 12.
Liked it! Great to buy a gift of olive soap as a token from Corfu to loved ones back home. Packaged in environmentally friendly card and string. Tour at noon is meant to be interesting, but we weren't there until afternoon. Worth a look inside. Don't forget to like my review 😀
