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 cannot be used for wedding ceremonies or wedding receptions or for parties larger in number than for persons booked into the villa

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 K
lismata 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. Our nearest taverna is a short walk along the country lane in front of the villa, the nearest
mini market is a few minutes walk away in the village. 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.
Other Activities: Ten pin bowling
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We have owned a property on Kefalonia since 1994 but on one of our 'exploring' trips we came across this fantastic plot of land with an outstanding view, that could never loose it's view due to another building! Yiannis is Greek from the mainland but has family connections with the island.His brother-in-law originates from here and owns a house in one o the villages further island.We visited many islands before we decided to take our families advice and visit Kefalonia. We fell in love with the views, beaches and generally the natural beauty the island has in abundance. Also that Kefalonia hadn't succumbed to the ferocious building programmes that many of the Greek Islands had done over the years.
Why the Owner Chose Svoronata: 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
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: 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
fluently 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.
