Pavilion in the garden for concerts and theatre

Dear friends, our centre for music and culture "Hellenikon Idyllion" at the northcoast of the Peloponnese offers choirs and orchestras an ideal forum to prepare concerts or just to rehearse intensively. In the flowering garden creative work can be combined with recreation and international contacts.

The genuine greek village Selianitika with its small taverns and traditional coffeeshops is placed at the coast between Patras and Korinth. The surrounding is full of flowers, fig-, olive-, orange- and lemontrees, palms and has lots of pitoresque cottages and villages.

The bungalows and flats with two or more beds are provided with bathroom and kitchen. "Hellenikon Idyllion" offers space for 70 people more people until 120 persons in the hotel nearby,  Breakfast, lunch and dinner can either be prepared individually or be taken in the tavern nearby.

We recommend to travel to Athens by plane. We help you to organize your transport from the airport to Egion/Selianitika (about 2 hrs.). If you go by car or bus you take the ferry boat from Ancona or Bari/Italy to Patras/Greece.

Facilities for Rehearsing

In the wide and shadowy garden there is a Schimmel Grand piano in a glaspavilion. Furthermore we can offer two big rooms with pianos and many shadowy places in the garden  


Due to a nice breeze from the sea it will never be too hot. There are two stages for rehearsals, concerts, dance, theatre and performances of any kind. Concerts in the surrounding countryside for instance, in an antique theater, can be organized.


The famous antique places like Olympia, Delphi, Mykene and Epidauros can easily be visited from Selianitika. Mythological landscape and old greek monuments can be enjoyed. There is also the possibility to relax in the garden or at the beach or to go for a swim in the sea which is just in front of "Hellenikon Idyllion.
