Villa overview


The villa sleeps 2- 8 people in 4 bedrooms. An extra child can be accommodated in a camp bed is required.

The house has a glorious private sunny pool (9 metres long, 4.5 metres wide and a constant 1.2 metres deep). For people in wheelchairs or with limited mobility, the downstairs double bedroom is ideal, being next to the downstairs shower room and W/C with commode available. British plumbing and WC - no small pipes!

Villa Helios is of the same design and layout as our other two villas nearby (Asteria and Angelos) in the same private olive grove so if you wish you could hire several villas together.

Our guests often comment that these villas are in the perfect location. They are within walking distance from two villages, close enough to enjoy their facilities but not too close to be disturbed by barking dogs, crowing cockerels and noisy human nightlife that happens in any and every Cretan village or town.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO PARENTS WITH SMALL CHILDREN! This villa has a downstairs kitchen which looks out directly onto the gated pool. This means you can see your children in the pool while you are preparing lunch! Many other villas in the area have not been designed with holidaymakers like you in mind as they have an upstairs kitchen which means you may have to balance a meal and a drink on a tray while walking down a flight of stairs with a toddler following behind you or under your feet! We designed this feature BEFORE the houses were built - you are not an afterthought!
The villa is located in a peaceful private olive grove of 4.5 acres (17,000 square metres). It is one of only 5 villas in the olive grove, all of which are owned by us. The olive grove is secure, being fenced and hedged by colourful oleander, and surrounded by olive trees. It is the perfect base to explore the picturesque Apokoronas area on foot or by car, with its tiny white hamlets nestled on green mountainsides. Apokoronas is a designated area of natural beauty, protected in a similar way to a UK National Park. At all times there are breath-taking views of the White Mountains which are snowcapped until late May. Literally on your doorstep there are numerous foot-trails through this most spectacular area of Crete, a genuine walker’s paradise.

Close to the villa are two villages. Almyrida, by the beach, is only a 3 minute drive away or you can walk it in half an hour. Gavalochori, further inland, is only a 1 minute drive away and you can walk there in less than 15 minutes.

Great place to stay Although the handover time was 5:00 p.m., John informed us at noon that we could already take over the house. The key handover was very easy and perfect. The pool was wonderful. Recommended at any time. 6/22/2022 at 7:24 PM

Beautiful villa with a fantastic pool We spent our summer vacation 2021 in Villa Helios. Our expectations were exceeded, the villa meets all the criteria described in terms of furnishings and fittings. The pool is a dream, wonderfully large, clean, we spent a lot of time here. But also the distance to the beach is moderate, we preferred Kalyves...

Well, I'm back at work sitting at my desk and just thinking what a fantastic 2 weeks we have just had at your villa, I think one of the reasons we like it so much is the peace and quiet and all the space you have especially around the pool. We've stayed in other villas but yours are by far the favorite, also we like to be left alone which you do...
