Property description

Villa Helena built in 2005 is a stunning 5 bedroomed villa completed to a high standard. Stands in her own grounds of 2 acres nestling amongst olive groves. Villa Helena has 5 double bedrooms with 5 en-suite bathrooms/shower rooms and guest cloakroom. Fully air-conditioned, with large open plan living and dining area, seating 10 guests comfortably. The lounge area is
comfortably furnished and has TV with local satellite channels,
DVD player and open feature fireplace. The kitchen/dining area
has a seating area for 10 guests. Hob, oven, fridge/freezer,
dishwasher and the utility room houses the washing machine.
The villa is surrounded by patio area with its own 80sq metre
swimming pool, covered BBQ area with summer kitchen and for
our guests’ private use a tennis court. There is a children’s play
area and orchard with many different fruit trees growing. The
view from the pool area is stunning, overlooking both the sea out
to Zakynthos and then inland to Mount Ainos.










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










































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 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

 

Owner info

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.
