Our centre has 4 working spaces:

- The large attic workshop space in the farmhouse is 12 x 6,5 m.
- The workshop space in the orchard (in the middle of nature) is 8 x 6 m.

Proximity to nature, safety and unity have always been our starting point when building and renovating.

Bedrooms and Showers

We have the capacity to sleep up to 44 people. There is a choice between single or 2 person bedrooms as well as a dormitory where up to 8 number of people can sleep.
Communal toilets and showers are off the corridors or close by.
We welcome bookings from groups of 10 people (minimum in weekends) / 12 people (minimum for midweeks).

Natural surroundings

Helios Centre is situated on beautiful, well maintained grounds. The 7000m2 large grounds include a pond, little pathways and all sorts of creative buildings and huts. Our centre is in Heerde, The Netherlands between the towns of Apeldoorn en Zwolle and is easy to reach by car as well as by public transport. Although there is no train station, a bus connection runs frequently from Apeldoorn and Zwolle just 900 m from our door.

When is it available for rent?

The centre is often available to rent during midweeks, including the evening time.
If you wish to rent the centre at or including a weekend, these are the available dates (half accommodation = max. 22 persons, entire accommodation = max. 44 persons)


Helios is alcohol-, drugs- and...... tantra free

Due to city council regulations which require a prostitution permit for centers offering tantra massage and tantra workshops in general, we do not ourselves give tantra workshops anymore and unfortunately cannot accommodate colleagues that offer tantra workshops.  Sorry about that!

Please check our Dutch rental page for current availability.  Vrij = free, bezet = occupied. Mail us for personal help if you can't figure out the Dutch!

Available weekends in 2018:
NB Sometimes we get a cancellation. You can send an e-mail to arianne@helioscentrum.nl to be put on a mailing list to hear about new available dates.

Feel free to make an appointment to come and take a look at what our centre has to offer and to determine if our centre is suitable for your workshops/trainings.

As soon as the full board reservation has been confirmed, you will be required to pay an advance of €250,- per weekend / multiple days or a series of weekends (training) for half of the accommodation. An advance of € 500,-  is required for the rental of all accommodation.

Deposit and Cancelation of Work spaces

The cost of hiring a workspace for a single day must be paid in advance.
When reserving a workspace for a series of days, a (non refundable) deposit of 1 day is required. The reservation will be fully confirmed only after the deposit has been received. This amount cannot be refunded if the reservation is cancelled.
This is the only loss the renter will incur in case of cancelation. No percentage of the rent etc. will be charged as is usual elsewhere. The loss to the renter is always limited in this way.

New possibility: one guarantee deposit for all of your events booked
For those renting many days or weekends with us, it is possible to pay one guarantee deposit for all events booked that will stay with us until the teacher asks us to subtract it from the last invoice.
This way the teacher only needs to pay one guarantee deposit and not one or each and every event. In case an event does not take place, the guarantee sum stays with Helios and needs to be paid anew for the remaining events.

Remaining Payment
The total amount for the hire of the workspace(s) and full board should be made payable to the Helios Centre in Heerde at least a week prior to the hire date. See bank details below. The number of guests communicated to us 4 days prior to the beginning of the workshop is the number we buy food for and prepare rooms for. This means that the invoice will be for at least this number or more (if more guests come).

Once the deposit has been paid, we will then publish your activity on the list of activities on the page called ‘Cursusruimte huren’ on the Helios website along with a link to your website.
This page is regularly referred in the Helios Newsletter. Activities are only published on the Dutch page.

All prices include VAT.
