The villa is surrounded by patio area with its own 80sq metre

Licences to rent Villas on Kefalonia: All villas in Greece/Kefalonia are now required to have the appropriate licences to be let to the
public. whether through a company or privately, these licences
are being fully enforced. This is called the EOT licence and all
villa owners must be in possession of a swimming pool licence
that is included with this. If the villa does not have these licences
they are at risk of the pool being put out of use and the villa
being closed down immediately. So it is advisable for any
prospective renter to make sure the villa they are interested in
TRULY has these licences or your holiday could be ruined. I
would like to reasure all our guests that Villa Helena has the
correct licences and public liability insurance.
Villa Helena can be used for wedding ceremonies or wedding receptions or for parties larger in number than for persons booked into the villa
Flying to Kefalonia: Easy Jet is now flying to Kefalonia from end
of April 2012. The flight prices look quite reasonable and will make your luxury villa holiday just that bit more affordable.
Villa Helena is in a lovely rural area,not isolated just quiet, there are many lovely walks that our guests enjoy during the early mornings and evenings. We have a delightful little cove at the end of our lane that is mostly undiscovered so undisturbed by many tourists. Only local people tend to venture down to it, but
just delightful for a picnic
Unique to Helena is an 80 sq.metre swimming pool .12metres long x 6 1/2 metres wide,not just a pool to play in, an actual swimming pool. Of course we are one of the few villas on the island to have it's own private tennis court so the whole family is entertained, from seniors to the younger children. Yiannis has vast local knowledge and speaking both Greek and English .He is also an excellent gardener and our guests enjoy the benefits of his superb organic vegetable garden and many different fruits from our orchard. Our small vineyard and olive grove are within the grounds of the villa and our guests can enjoy our wine and olive oil if they wish.He speaks Greek and English fluently which is really helpful for our guests. We are a small family business and work hard to ensure our guests really do have a unique and memorable holiday.
AMAZING,Truly a beautiful villa, breathtaking views, We got married in Keramies Kefalonia and had a wonderful greek ceromony at the villa, My family and friends could not believe how fantastic it was,
The cleaner pops in to change sheets etc but you hardly know shes there and Yiannis(the owner) waters plants and veg garden and you dont even see him as hes so discreet, Anything you want and he will help get it for you,Villa Helena is a clean well looked after and special place I would wholeheartedly recommend it to families or friends, We loved it so much that we did not really need to go out but if you did want to visit local places Argostoli is a 10 min drive and is a wonderful place to eat and shop both daytime or evening, GO i promise you a fantastic and memorable holiday.

It was our 50th anniversary and decided to take our children/partners and grandchildren away for a weeks holiday 10 of us in total. The villa was easy to find using Helens instructions and only approx. 20mins drive from the airport. On arrival at the villa Giannis was waiting to give us a guided tour and to explain the workings of the villa which was very much appreciated.
The Villa itself was faultless a really beautiful location, built to a very high standard and with views to die for. In addition it was very well equipped and fitted out with everything one may need, the garden landscaping was fantastic with loads of space for the kids to run around in, the very large infinity pool and the outdoor dining BBQ area and tennis courts a big hit for old and young alike.
We hired cars which if you are adventurous like my family came in useful for day trips out, although there are some good beaches and very good restaurants quite near by, our favourites of which we highly recommend were Marina`s by the sea at Lourdata beach and the Olive Tree (more local) .It is also worth a visit just for the view to Lorraines Magic Hill restaurant at Lourdes beach if you are okay with a few steps to climb, the food makes it well worth the effort.
I could go on and on about The Villa Helena but suffice to say we had the most relaxing and tranquil holiday for a long long time and all my family young and old have vowed to come back again sooner than later.
I would like to thank Helen & Giannis for being so helpful and letting us have the use of their beautiful home .
Kindest Regards Chris & Elfreda Gullick.
Have just sadly come home from a 10 night stay here and we were all just blown away by the Villa and grounds! If we could have stayed longer we definitely would have. A family of 7 with young boys, a late teenager and an older person and it catered for everyone perfectly. The swimming pool and tennis court were just amazing and kept us all entertained for hours. To each have our own room and bathroom too was just so nice; no fighting for the shower in the morning! The location of the villa is perfect, nice and quiet to really appreciate the break yet not too far if you want to go out sightseeing or at night-time. Yannis and Helen were so nice to us too, very prompt and helpful in every way possible which really did have a massive impact on us. Have already recommended to others and would definitely go back again!
Thank you so much Helen and Yannis for all your help before and during our stay, it really meant a lot to us all and your villa is just PERFECT!
Beautifully maintained, extremely well equipped, very clean villa.
The owners Helen and Yiannis could have done no more to make us feel very welcome, their own Olive Oil, Wine and Cucumbers ( fresh from the olive grove and vegetable garden) went down a treat with all the family.
We would highly recommend this stunning, tranquil villa in beautiful Kefalonia.
Two lovely little beaches close by, one, where we had a lovely evening barbeque as the Sun went down, beach to ourselves, barbeque equipment on the beach we just supplied the food and wine , lovely, perfect evening.
Perfect holiday, thank you Helen and Yiannis.
We were delighted by the villa, which was well equipped and by the whole process of booking, with clear instructions and friendly hosts. For a family of seven adults, one child and a baby it was ideal. It is in a quiet location, with a large pool, which we used a lot despite it being only April. Though many tavernas were closed there were enough open to enjoy local food. We also used the villa's kitchen and barbecue to good effect. The grounds were immaculate, we enjoyed both tennis and bowls with equipment provided. Yiannis was around when needed and always helpful. We would highly commend this villa to friends, it is close to Sparti beach, which is small but sandy, and a short drive to Agostoli, and in season there are at least two local tavernas, one within walking distance.
Enjoyed a holiday here in this lovely five bedroom villa with copious amounts of space, a huge pool and balconies to catch a sunset whilst enjoying a glass of wine in the evenings.
The photographs provided on the website don't do the villa justice. It's set in a vast amount of land with an organic vegetable garden to one side which you can help yourself to. To the right is a small vineyard as the owner Yiannis makes his own wine.The villa itself was clean and homely with plenty of outdoor space.
Helen and Yiannis provided an excellent service from start to finish. They provided a car with the villa which is a must to be able to enjoy the beautiful island fully. They also informed us of local tavernas which served delicious authentic Greek cuisine. Both my partner and I would thoroughly recommend this villa if you are looking for a peaceful week or two away!
Villa Helena stands on its own private grounds of 2 acres nestling amongst olive groves. It offers a peaceful and secluded location with views over the countryside to the Ionian Sea and the island of Zakynthos in the distance. Looking inland is a superb view of
Mount Ainos. The sleepy village of Klismata is a short walk from the villa, the local beach Paliolinos, is within walking distance if rather a steep climb on the way back, the blue flag beach of Avithos is a five minute drive away.Spartia beach is also delightful and a few minutes drive away. Our nearest taverna is a short walk along the country lane in front of the villa, the nearest mini market is in in the village of Spartia, a few minutes drive away.
The locality is generally rural with some privately built villas but no
obvious tourist type accommodation to spoil the peace of the
area. The busier resort of Lassi with a variety of tavernas and
some bars is about 7 -10 minutes drive from the villa and the
capital town of the island Argostoli another 5 minutes further on,
a busier working town.
