Welcome to the Abeliona Retreat, in the village of Abeliona, that lies among the mountainous valleys between Messinia and Arcadia. This place will provide unparalleled relaxation and rejuvenation, thanks to its beauty and magical aura. The guesthouse has been designed with all modern comforts in mind while maintaining traditional architecture, gastronomy and values of the region.
The village is situated at an imaginary crossroads between three regions, Ilia, Messinia and Arcadia. The name of the village comes from the Greek term for vines, ‘ambeli’, which was given to the village because of the many vineyards farmed by its inhabitants. Nowadays, nestling amongst the chestnut trees, the village is a little retreat offering hospitality and peace.
The village of Abeliona has a special charm, which unfolds gradually until it eventually wins its visitors over completely. A stroll around the village, a glass of tsipouro with the locals, a walk in the woods or a short visit to the springs… a great combination of activities, each of which brings us pleasure in its own special way.
What makes Abeliona Retreat even more special is the organic kitchen based on local recipes and regional ingredients. In addition, the little organic shop, cozy lobby with fireplace, library and billiards table will keep you occupied indoors, while amazing hiking possibilities and opportunities for soulful reflection in nature will delight you outdoors. This is one truly memorable escape from the demands of working life that you won’t forget.
Having Abeliona Retreat as your base, you can take part in your favorite activities, such as biking, hiking, etc., in a captivating natural environment, while at the same time, you are a stone’s throw away from all the historical monuments of the area.
