Visit "Hellenikon Idyllion" alos in winter time! Enjoy the pleasure of playing music and feel inspired by the lovely sourrounding! Look forward a snowless winter in our 4000qm organic "Garden of the Muses and Epicurus"…

We have several stage areas. In the upper part of the property there is a 70 square meter large stage with a wooden floor and a 100 square meter large court space. This can be used for theatre or musical performances.
On the right a pavilion exists of 35 square meter size.There is a baby grand piano which can easily be pulled onto the large stage. See our website for our annual program and for pictures.
This shall serve as an inspiration for a visit. You are very welcome to carry out your own project with us.The second, lower stage at the front part of our yard is also canopied and centred in a 4000 square meter orchard and flower garden.
The distance to the upper stage is roughly 70 meters. If you hire all of the facility, it would be possible to open a third or fourth stage next to bungalow number 2 only 30 meters away from the beach and an area next to the open air baking stove.
These two stage areas are protected from rain and sun by a canopy decorated with naturally grown grape-vines.
A number of practice rooms are available such as the music pavilion, the club room basement, and two further practice rooms, each 15 square meters in size. They are all equipped with mechanical pianos and can be locked.
On top of this there are 4 E-pianos, a cello, a double bass, 3 concert drums, a drum -set and two congas. This can be used anywhere.

Supported cultural projekts in winter at "Hellenikon Idyllion"

From November 2016 until April 2017

A winter without snow – for culturally and musically creative people who are young-at-heart and who would like to spent some time at Hellenikon Idyllion in order to escape the frosty winter in their own country.

We offer one- and two-room apartments with special conditions, which will only cover our own expenses (heating, gardening, music equipment, organisation and support etc.). Please contact us if you are interested, price on agreement.
You will have the chance to use our music equipment, the library, as well as our fruit and vegetable garden and the stone oven including firewood free of charge.

Please contact us if you would like to come and stay with us, tell us when you would like to come and if you are able to offer anything artistic or scientific or a handicraft. Do not hesitate to tell us your wishes. Mrs Gerda Rohmer, who also speaks Greek and who was with us the last three winters, will be in charge again this year.

Our winter muse director Herman Rechberger, a Finnish composer who also speaks Greek, offers classes in Greek and Music by arrangement. He lives in a village close by and can always be reached by phone.

This is a cultural exchange program.

Sunny greetings from the coast,

Your Andreas Drekis

P.S. In our village Selianitika several taverns and restaurants are open during the winter months and a hospital in Aigio and a big university hospital in Rion close to Patras are only 7-26 kilometres away. Also, Athens is about 190 km away from Selianitika and it takes about two hours to go there by car.
