We strongly believe that the two most important aspects in human life are: Health & Happiness. We refer to them simply as ‘H’ and we are passionate advocates of their benefits. Having privileged access to the legendary source of those four core elements in our homeland -Hellas- we have made it our mission to share H -the Greek holistic experience- in China, towards empowering a healthier and happier life.
Guests are invited to step into this stately mansion in Shanghai and enter an authentic world of Greek experiences. Hellas House offers a unique opportunity to interact with the Hellenic civilization -one of the world’s most ancient- and experience the true spirit of Greece in China.
Hellas House is the culmination of its founders’ vision, Sophia and Pavlos Kontomichalos, who aimed to establish a landmark hub in Asia, showcasing the epitome of Greek Culture, Hospitality and Gastronomy. Pavlos Kontomichalos, founder and CEO of Hellas Group, is a Greek entrepreneur who has lived and worked in China for many years. In a bid to bring the best of his beloved Greece to China, he envisioned an establishment that would convey the Hellenic spirit to Shanghai, attracting leaders, business persons and entrepreneurs from around the globe.

Greece at a Glance
There is no place on earth like Greece (Hellas). This blessed land combines ancient history, philosophy and wisdom with art, natural beauty and geographical diversity. The capital city, Athens, attracts millions of tourists who wish to admire the crown jewel of ancient civilization, world renowned Acropolis. Greece is also famous for its warm hospitality, vibrant lifestyle and culinary tradition. The supreme taste of local gastronomic delicacies and fine wines proves why Dionysus, god of winemaking and wine, was born in this land. Besides, the country’s strong legacy of wellness is based on the famous Mediterranean diet comprising gourmet traditional products and gifts of the earth.
The country’s stunning natural beauty is highlighted by the serenity of the Aegean Sea.
