What additional (probably basic) configuration do I need to do to enable CGI execution under Apache 2.4?

I’m setting up a system, and I seem to be missing a basic aspect of Apache configuration. I am getting a 403 error when I attempt to load 127.0.0.1/index.cgi.

My sites-enabled conf file is:

<VirtualHost *:80>
        # The ServerName directive sets the request scheme, hostname and port that
        # the server uses to identify itself. This is used when creating
        # redirection URLs. In the context of virtual hosts, the ServerName
        # specifies what hostname must appear in the request's Host: header to
        # match this virtual host. For the default virtual host (this file) this
        # value is not decisive as it is used as a last resort host regardless.
        # However, you must set it for any further virtual host explicitly.
        #ServerName www.example.com

        ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
        #DocumentRoot /var/www/html
        DocumentRoot /home/christos/link
        <Directory />
        Options None
        AllowOverride None
        </Directory>
        <Directory /home/christos/link>
        Options ExecCGI Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
        AllowOverride None
        </Directory>
        AddHandler cgi-script .cgi

        # Available loglevels: trace8, ..., trace1, debug, info, notice, warn,
        # error, crit, alert, emerg.
        # It is also possible to configure the loglevel for particular
        # modules, e.g.
        #LogLevel info ssl:warn

        # For most configuration files from conf-available/, which are
        # enabled or disabled at a global level, it is possible to
        # include a line for only one particular virtual host. For example the
        # following line enables the CGI configuration for this host only
        # after it has been globally disabled with "a2disconf".
        #Include conf-available/serve-cgi-bin.conf
</VirtualHost>
