Abeliona Retreat, Messinia
Nestled in the village of Abeliona with a healing energy flowed from the Ancient Greek History, Abeliona Retreat is the ideal place to organize yoga, meditation and alternative therapeutic workshops in Arcadia, Greece.
The healing energy derives from the Temple of Apollo Epicurius, a World Heritage Site by UNESCO dedicated to the ancient God of cure.
Take advantage of the flooded energy and organize a customized alternative workshop in the Yurt and elsewhere in surrounding nature. Join the sign posted trails within chestnut forests and springs or explore Zeus’ river by rafting.
One’s body is one’s temple, so we prepare organic breakfast with ingredients from our farm and traditional homemade dishes with raw materials from local producers.
