Villa Helios is a two-bedroom luxury villa in Zakynthos. Built in 2016, this beautiful villa combines modern comfort with traditional design. With its own infinity pool, direct access to the beach and sea views from every room, it’s perfect for a family holiday or couples’ retreat.
Villa Helios stands in an exclusive complex with five other villas, on vast plot of private land in the north of the island. It’s 30 kilometres from the airport and main town in the south, and is conveniently close to some of the island’s best attractions. The port of Agios Nikaloas is just a couple of kilometres away. Here, you can enjoy traditional tavernas, cafes and restaurants, and catch a boat for a family-friendly excursion. Navagio, or ‘Shipwreck Bay’, is just 20 minutes away. Huge white cliffs, crystal-clear turquoise waters and a large sandy beach surrounding an old shipwreck; it’s easy to see why this is one of the most photographed landscapes in Greece. You’ll have spotted the nearby island of Kefalonia from your villa – from the port you can jump on a ferry and in one hour you’ll be stepping onto another beautiful island. Back at the villa, you’re perfectly placed to discover the famous Blue Caves. These wonderful formations sit just below the property and are a must-see.
Designed using natural stone and wood, and decorated in neutral shades, Villa Helios is a haven of calm. The two double bedrooms both have en suites and doors that open out onto the terrace. There’s space to dine inside, in the airy, open plan kitchen and living/dining room. There’s also the option to dine outside, under a covered veranda. Fire up the coal barbeque and enjoy laid-back al fresco dining, looking down over the private pool and the blue sea beyond.
This property has all the luxury amenities you might expect, including Wi-Fi and air conditioning throughout, and organic toiletries. It also has thoughtful extras, such as the welcome pack containing drinks, fresh fruit and the estate’s own produce; wine from their winery and home-grown organic olive oil and herbs. There’s table tennis, access to an outdoor gym and yoga facilities, as well as mountain bikes and watersports equipment for your use. The villa is professionally managed, with a cleaning service included – once or twice a week depending on the length of your stay.
If you’re looking for Zakynthos accommodation for a relaxed holiday, Villa Helios is an excellent choice. A refined and comfortable villa with stunning sea views, it’s sure to delight families, couples or groups of friends spending quality time together.
