“The perfect holiday villa”
Reviewed 4 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This villa is now named Villa Pauline (after the new owner).
And that would appear to be the only change from the earlier reviews.
The pool, the tennis court, the rooms, the views, the gardens, and the outside dining areas are all exceptional, the villa is very well appointed.
The villa is close to the airport, there are a few good local tavernas and small sandy coves a short drive away. There was also a welcome pack of food/wine for our arrival.
Dan (the manager of the property) met us on our arrival and lived 10 minutes away if needed. We had four young children with us and within an hour of our arrival Dan had gone to a store and bought numerous inflatable pool toys for the kids, which was very much appreciated.

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!

The holiday started well when we found out that Yiannis had come to the airport to help us with our luggage. We were a party of 8 - my wife and I plus our 4 daughters and 2 partners. We had hired 2 jeeps for the week but of course there was no space for the 8 suitcases that we had brought with us. So Yiannis came to the rescue and we followed home from the airport to Villa Helena - about a 15 minute drive. As we drove down the driveway to the Villa, we all gasped. It was absolutely brilliant. Everything at the villa is perfect: the view, the pool, the BBQ area and the tennis court - and that is just the outside.

We had a wonderful week at the villa and would recommend it to anyone for a delightful and restful holiday.

Thank you Yiannis and Helen

“An exceptional villa in a beautiful location”

We had stayed the previous year in a villa near Sami but wanted this year to have a tennis court. We found villa Helena on the net and booked for three families. 6 adults and 4 teenagers 15 to 19 girls. 15 minutes drive from the airport, and a couple of minutes drive from a delightful small beach is the villa, set in wonderful gardens where we picked the most fantastic tomatoes to eat fresh every day. The views of the sea and Zante are picturesque from the bedroom balconies or sitting around the flat deck pool (probably the best I have seen in a villa). The barbecue is amazing with an abundance of olive wood provided to give the best ever cooking experience and a covered table area with great views of the sunset.
The owner looked after us like we were family and made our stay a fantastic holiday, a big thanks to Yanis. This is a wonderful villa with a great owner the only negatives we could think of were; the tennis court is only singles (but we had fun playing doubles on it) and if everybody took a shower at the same time the water pressure dropped( so a rota put in place)
You would struggle not to have a great time at villa Helena.

Thank you for your great review and naturally pleased you enjoyed your stay ! As you say you would struggle to be disappointed with your choice of villa. Sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine on a warm summers evening is just the best !!!! Yiannis does go the extra mile for his guests and as you realised his garden is his pride and joy !!! The olive oil we make is superb, remember to ask him for a bottle to take home the next time you stay !!! He will be making wine in the next couple of weeks!!!! So thanks again and hopefully see you in the future !! I have mentioned the water pressure which he will look into, unfortunately we can't stretch the tennis court ,but I gather fun was still had !!
