I would see this as a win for you :)

Being invited is a strong sign that you/your idea have merit. But instead of having to deal with funding/investors/other crap, you get to work on your idea, in a "remote area of Greece", be your own boss and grow the company how you want. I can very easily see this idea being modestly successful and giving you a lot of freedom to work on other ideas.

Thanks, I think that would be ideal. Still, I think YC would facilitate this in that you don't really need to put as much effort into networking (they do it for you), so I can work on my idea in Greece while still getting introduced to interesting people.
