                          Villa Helios has a view to cherish, it over looks olive groves and many private vineyards along with a typical greek small holding. The sea can be seen from the balcony. The quiet relaxed village of Kaligata is situated in the south of the Island in the beautiful area of Avithos. Almost everything you require will be found in this region. Whether it's Avithos beach which can be reached within 5 minutes by car or for the more athletic a brisk 15 minute walk. The picturesque village of Kourkoumelata is well worth a visit with it's pastel coloured properties and manicured gardens. To the north of the villa you can admire the natural beauty of Mount Ainos rising into the blue cloudless skies.
