Venue Highlights

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. Yurts have always been considered holy in many Asian cultures; with the first written description of a yurt dating back to ancient Greek historian, Herodotus. Built from natural materials, the yurt fosters an almost total feeling of seclusion that is ideal for yoga and meditation sessions. Below the yurt, there is a 50 sq.m. pavilion, which constitutes both the perfect relaxation spot, and an area suitable for conducting outdoor sessions.


The Retreat offers 22 spacious rooms built in traditional Arcadian style. The 13 Junior Suites and 9 Family Suites come with a fireplace and all modern comforts, from Wi-Fi to bath amenities. The interiors are furnished with fine antiques and classical fabrics, in traditional décors with a subtle modern touch and a twist of upper quality. With utmost attention to detail, the accommodation of Abeliona Retreat are your personal little heaven.

At the Abeliona Retreat we believe that one’s body is one’s temple. With respect to nutrition, we offer a rich breakfast buffet and menu dishes based on local recipes and pure ingredients. We also provide locally grown fruits, vegetables and herbs, many of which are handpicked from our 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. Every day, we prepare a variety of local dishes, with appealing choices for vegetarians, health-conscious individuals and meat-eaters alike.


You can get to Abeliona by car from the airports of Athens and Kalamata. It's about 2 and half hours from Athens and 1 and half from Kalamata.
