Rental info Helios workshop accommodation
Minima and maxima
At Helios you always rent for a minimum of 18, maximum of 36 persons. For workshops that only take place on weekdays, the minimum is 16. These numbers include staff.
NB: For workshops that take place on both a weekend day and weekdays, we charge for a minimum of 18 guests on all days.
We only rent including overnight stays and full board. So not for a single evening, day etc.
The teacher works with his group in the Finnish kota. We also have a double dining room with a relaxation area where 36 people can be seated.
All rooms are well ventilated and equipped with large, powerful (but silent) ionisers with HEPA filters.
The meals are as much as possible organic and vegetarian at a high culinary level. Our cooks are true culinary artists.
Teachers who offer longer retreats/trainings (6 days or more) and insist on bringing their own cooks, can contact Arianne for an adapted quotation.
NB Guests cannot bring pets to Helios unless they stay overnight in their own camper and the pet stays in the camper. One camper can get electricity from us.
Besides the per-person price you also pay room rental, scroll down for this.
Notice to teachers/organizers regarding booking and cancellation of workshops/trainings due to possible corona government measures
If our government or the government of the hirer (if he and his participants come from another country) takes measures which make it impossible for the workshop/course to take place, the deposit can be postponed to a later date or remain as credit until the hirer wants to book again. However, in the event of forced cancellation at short notice, a grocery fee must be paid for the cook.
How do we deal with last minute cancellations due to corona contamination or quarantine obligations?
Our cook has to pass on his food order to his organic supplier 4 days before a rental period. Therefore, our normal rule is that anyone who cancels 4 days in advance will have to pay for overnight stays and meals.
For corona cancellations (the person has a cold and not yet sure what it is, tested positive or in quarantine) we reduce this to the half-meal amount = € 23.50 per day (also for the last 2 meal day). This is in fact a groceries allowance.
Overnight stays do not have to be paid for in the event of a cancellation because of corona.
NB You always pay for a minimum of 18 guests, so the above only applies to participants over 18 guests cancelled by corona.

Character of our accommodation
Our accommodation, situated on a beautifully designed, natural site of 7700 m2, consists of 4 buildings, three of which have bedrooms. In addition, we have several fairytale and fantasy, tiny house type accommodation areas such as our 2 'tree houses', Woudlust, the mini-kota, the Elfjes-caravan and the 'Hansel and Gretel house'.
These cosy outdoor spaces are loved by our guests because it is an experience to sleep in them and they offer peace and privacy. Toilet and shower are always nearby.
Here you will find photos and descriptions of most of our sleeping areas.
Super group space: the Finnish kota
Behind the big pond is our Finnish kota (110 m2), a course room that is the dream of every teacher: the perfect shape (octagonal = almost round), entirely made of natural materials (Douglas fir wood and light loam walls, oak floor), wonderfully evenly heated by wall heating, very good sound system, moreover built on a spot with a powerful, warm energy. The room is well insulated. Several large, rough pieces of semi-precious stones form lighting elements along the walls.
We have yoga/massage mats, backpacks, meditation cushions and chairs. We also have many Reiki tables and 6 massage tables that are all available to the tenant.
The teacher can come a few hours before the start of the group to set up the room to his/her liking with all the available materials.
When the weather is nice, the activities can also take place in nature on our beautifully designed terrain of 7700 m2. It adds an extra dimension to an activity if you can do yoga outside or sit together in the open air!
