We know that you might be feeling uncertain about booking your next holiday with the ever-changing travel restrictions, which is why we've introduced our Travel Restrictions Guarantee for your peace of mind.
Book your next villa holiday with confidence, safe in the knowledge that you can either move your dates or receive a holiday voucher for the full amount paid if your travel dates are restricted by either FCDO/local government advice advice or local restrictions in your destination country.*
The Travel Restrictions Guarantee is automatically included in the website price and can be removed before you book, however we strongly advise you keep it to give you added flexibility and protection.
You will still need to purchase a comprehensive travel insurance policy as soon as your booking is confirmed. This insurance should, as a minimum, protect you against cancellation, curtailment, medical expenses, loss/theft of possessions and documents, personal liability and airline failure.

Kefalonia International Airport (EFL)
Ai Helis is a sleepy coastal area just south of the traditional village of Svoronata in Leivathos and only around 15 minutes drive from the capital town, Argostoli. Ai Helis offers a glorious deep bay of golden sand and shallow crystal clear water gazing out at the tiny islet of Zeus and backed by cliffs. Along the cliff edge are some very exclusive Greek summer homes and holiday villas.
The beach offers a small snack bar in high summer as well as sunbeds and parasols for rent and it is popular for beach volley games in the late afternoon. Just inland are a smattering of tavernas, restaurants and a couple of mini markets to choose from all within a few minutes easy stroll along country lanes whilst the larger supermarkets are just a short drive away. Apart from Argostoli itself there are also a few places of interest within 10 minutes drive of Ai Helis – including the Castle of St. George and St. Andreas Monastery which are both well worth a visit. For a change of scenery, the stunning beaches of Avithos, Megalipetra and Ammes are close by to name just a few.
Just returned from Ai Helis 11/10/19 ,the villa is great its very clean and well equipped ,the beds are very comfy the villa is sat in a large plot theres plenty of different seating areas where can eat and get out of the sun if you need too,the pool is quite large and was cleaned every other day .The beach is a short 10 min stroll away and its a great beach,we know the area very well as we have been coming to Kefalonia twice a year for the last 20yrs ,you will need a car to get around ,there are some good restaurants within walking distance or you have Agrostoli about a 15 min drive away. One thing i would say the pictures on the website are a bit deceiving the kitchen at the villa is small which is ok if theres only one person trying to cook in there ,other than that the villa is good .

This villa is in a superb location very close to a lovely beach and also very close to the airport. The villa is spacious and very pretty with lots of outside space to enjoy. The pool is a good size and plenty of chairs and sunbeds. Downside was the very damp smelling underground room with no aircon and double beds rather than singles in all rooms which the kids did not like. Also no door on the bathroom which seemed very odd. One of the photos on the website is now out of date with the area just having an airer now rather than the hammock seat and chairs shown. Overall, I would recommend this villa though, we had a fantastic time there and would return. We had this villa at a bargain rate for a short week so it was extremely good value for money.

We had a wonderful week at the villa. The Villa was in a wonderful location. Very private and in a very quiet area, even though it was near to the airport the planes came in over the bay not overhead, and not that often or during the night. The nearby Ai Helis sandy beach was small and the water crystal clear which was located down some steps. It had parasols you could rent and a café on the beach also. There were lots of nearby restaurants to try. You could walk to most or a short drive. The locals were very friendly and the food excellent.

Very peaceful....other than the odd plane over head. There were no neighbours so very private. Lots of seating outside so a variety of places to chill out. Easy walk to the beach, shop and restaurants. No need for a car if only staying one week. Villa was well equipped and they had thought of everything....even a British extension lead for the myriad of charges! Would highly recommend.

We came to Ai Helis villa on the recommendation of friends and were not disappointed. The accommodation was excellent with every consideration given to comfort and provision of all the facilities needed for a relaxing holiday. The pool was a good size too and the BBQ area was lovely. The location was quiet but set back a bit too far to have much of a sea view however close to Ai Helis and Ames beaches which are lovely. We would definitely recommend Ai Helis villa. You will love it.

Excellent location - close to lovely beaches and shops/restaurants - but still beautifully private and peaceful. Spacious grounds including lovely places to sit at different times of day and the villa itself was very nice. Beds were particularly comfortable!

Al Helis beach house was very well equipped for self catering with lots of cutlery and crockery. Lots of outside space to relax and enjoy the sun and the beach a short walk away. Bedrooms are very comfortable and spacious, each with its own balcony

The villa was very well appointed. Swimming pool and surrounds were lovely. The nearest beach was a 5 minute walk. It was reached by a flight of about 80 steps. The beach was sandy and safe for swimming. There was a supermarket a 10 minute walk away. Other beaches and tavernas were about 20 to 30 minutes walk. The villa had a mid week maid service. Very spacious.

Gorgeous villa, fabulous facilities, very well equipped. Everything you could need, lots of thought into extras such as a torch (needed if walking to local restaurant at night), mosquito plug ins, some toiletries, but really the most Amazing outside space. Fabulous banana trees, fresh mint growing in garden, gorgeous outside furniture, lanterns for garden, lovely outside cooking area and awesome pool (although freezing due to unseasonal rain for time of year). Lovely helpful and friendly cleaners who changed bedding, towels 4 times throughout stay. Fab location. 2 min walk from beach with a cute little beach bar in the cliff. Local shop again 2 min walk, sold everything. Perfect location for exploring. Can highly recommend this villa
