A paradise hidden in a small village in Greece, in the Peloponnese.
Access is easy by car.

Ambeliona is a small traditional village near Ancient Olympia and next to the Temple of Epicureus Apollo and the beautiful Andritsina.

It is the ideal choice for those who want to experience a piece of the unknown Greek hinterland, surrounded by the beautiful forest with chestnut trees of the village.

Abeliona Retreat is quiet guesthouse, with relaxing environment, rooms with high aesthetics, traditional Greek gastronomy with organic products impeccable service from the smiling and welcoming staff.

The architectural style of hotel is tied to the natural environment creating a sense of continuity between the exterior and interior.

Each room has a unique identity.
The spaces are comfortable and bright - like all rooms - and the visitor feels comfortable and intimate.

Rich homemade breakfast buffet with cheeses, eggs, cold cuts, traditional bread with dough, cakes, cereals, pies, sweets, all with local organic products from the village gardens.

I suggest you try cock with noodles and of course Greek traditional frumenty trachana

You will not be bored.

The Abeliona Retreat can be the basis for hiking on the paths of the area - ask at the reception- walks in the forest, mountain bike (rent at the reception) and other activities.

Go through from Spyro's coffee shop, in the square.

In a few minutes from the guesthouse begins the descent to the wonderful gorge of Neda, 30 minutes away there is Lousios and Alfios, where alternative tourism companies are operating.

I personally relaxed in a 4-day stay with yoga, accommodation and meals, all within the beautiful guesthouse -at very good package prices.

I booked 3 nights here for my sister and I to relax and unwind with good wholesome food. We were there out of season (late April 17) which may have affected the service etc however we felt really disappointed with the place and left a night early despite the 50% cancellation fee imposed.

Dinner every night was a basic choice of Greek salad or Green salad and from the grill you had the choice of chicken, meatballs or lamb. No other main meals on offer despite promoting a "variety of local dishes and appealing choices for vegetarians" on their website.

Breakfast was a limited selection placed at the table (no buffet)

Staff would loudly take calls and video calls in the dining room mid service.

The public areas were unlit so felt less welcoming and a bit cold in atmosphere.

It looked like there was a shop in the hotel but it remained closed through our stay.

The yurt mentioned was still under construction so unavailable.

We really felt like we'd imposed staying here rather than the warm and wholesome environment we'd been expecting. I wouldn't return here or recommend it. I commend what the owner has done in rebuilding the village. The property itself is really beautiful, as were the rooms. I especially loved the book collection available.

(Nuts come as standard in each room, a nice touch for many but potentially dangerous for anyone with an allergy.)

Some places are just magical! This is one of them. Food like it is meant to be, great hospitality and a village out of a fairytale .. Sleep is absolutely fabulous, especially if you don't get enough back home!!!

We went to Abeliona knowing absolutely nothing about it. I had imagined fairly rustic, basic accommodation close to two interesting sites, Ancient Olympia and the Temple of Apollo. In fact the place is super luxurious, super well organised with the most accommodating staff one could wish for. Nothing is too much trouble. The food is organic and delicious, the setting is idyllic and local views and walks are amazing. You feel this is 'real' Greece far from the hustle and bustle of tourism and yet offering every comfort to body and soul.

I have been many times there because I love the aura of that place, but the brand new sign-posted trails in the area just upgraded the whole concept. I cannot find a more pleasant way to revitalize yourself than eat healthy, become one with nature and sleep well.
