Ambeliona, Messinia, Peloponnese
Guest house Small Traditional hotel
Located at the natural borders of Messinia and Laconia, within the mountain village of Ambeliona at 850m height, the Abeliona Retreat is perfectly blending in the lush, verdant scenery and offers an exceptional environment where silence is an absolute value.
The 22 spacious rooms are built in the traditional Arcadian style. They all have a fireplace and combine perfectly the traditional style with the modern comfort.
After a full day of activities, hikes and walks, enjoy your favourite drink, coffee, wine or drink in the relaxing atmosphere lounge area.
At the restaurant enjoy the rich breakfast and a variety of daily menus based on local recipes and certified local organic ingredients, with appealing choices for vegetarians, health-conscious individuals and meat-eaters alike.
You will taste fruits, vegetables and herbs, many of which are handpicked from the Retreat’s vegetable garden and greenhouse, just a short time before being served, while the eggs come directly from the property’s grain-fed, free range chickens.
Lying serenely on the highest point of the property, the Yurt affords a truly remarkable view. This 80 sq. m energy-emitting dwelling boasts a unique spiritual ambiance, and is dedicated to yoga, meditation and all kinds of therapeutic group activities.
