We absolutely loved our stay in Villa Helena. The outside space is perfect - you can sit all day, under the tree or in the sun, or even on the pool flamingo, absorbing the changing views across the sea to the mainland and Lefkada and taking in the boat life travelling past. There is a large shaded dining table by the main living area and kitchen, facing the pool, but also enough space to find a leafy quiet afternoon snooze spot. Interiors are stylish and clean and the housekeeper Anna's daily arrival with a smile was a treat. The pool is salt water and cleaned daily - medium size and ideal for a refreshing swim. The house has really efficient air-conditioning which we hardly used (travelled in early June) since the house remains comfortably cool.
We hired a boat for a week which we used to go shopping, eat out and explore the island. Definitely recommended. The little beach with its private access was better than expected - big stones like the rest of the island but the water was really clear and you can swim off the jetty. There are a few sun loungers under the trees - ideal for a quiet afternoon siesta and catching a cooling breeze on a hot day.
Lilias Morgan was so helpful, organising all the car hire, boat hire and anything else we needed - even a transfer when we missed the last ferry back on a day trip to Lefkada. She made all the planning seamless and was always on hand to help with queries.
There are 2 other properties on the site which we were worried would overlook us but the design and planting have avoided this. There are also very few properties nearby so it is very quiet, except for a few cow bells tinkling by some mornings.
We had use of 2 electric bikes - a revelation to us and perfect for a late afternoon exploration of the island. They make the hills doable in the heat and much more fun for the daily bread run than the car.
We would love to return, hopefully with a larger party and renting one of the other villas as well.
What a lovely villa tucked away in the hill side perfect location,me and my family really enjoyed our stay very clean modern,would definitely stay again lots to do and see fully recommended many thanks from me and my family
