However, the Italian insists the Russian billionaire is incredibly eager to expand his knowledge of the game.
The 47-year-old former Italy and Juventus manager took charge in west London this summer and has Chelsea in a strong position after 10 league games after an average start.
The Blues boss was speaking to Sky Italia and gave an interesting assessment on the man who employed him.
“He’s a very demanding employer but a great football enthusiast,” he said.
“Mr Abramovich is an employer and owner who has great passion for football. He wants to know and understand your ideas.
“He went to Austria to follow our training sessions. He comes to Cobham to spend time with us and watch the videos I show to my players, because he really wants to understand. I think this is wonderful.”
Abramovich, who turned 50 last month, has had indifferent relations with several of his previous managers and attracts mixed feelings among football aficianodos.
Since buying the club in the summer of 2003 he has had 10 different men occupying the Stamford Bridge hotseat.
People within the game have questioned his short fuse when firing managers, but the Russian has overseen four league titles, four FA Cups and the Champions League during his tenure.
It seems though that Conte has forged a positive relationship with the man at the top of the hierarchy and four wins in their last four games will have both Conte and Abramovich in good spirits.
Chelsea host Everton on Saturday evening at Stamford Bridge in the last round of games before the second international break of the campaign and will hope to maintain their title push.
