An Overnight Tax has been enforced by the Greek government and applies to everyone staying in hotels and apartments in Greece. The levy varies depending on star rating but will be up to €4 per room per night, payable locally on check in. Our cruises are exempt from this tax, however if you are combining your cruise with a hotel stay it will apply to the duration spent at your hotel.

The Helis Hotel Apartments serve up mountain and coastal views alongside a peaceful postcode.
These family-run apartments put the emphasis on laidback breaks. Aside from the pool and bar, the highlight’s the surrounding countryside. It's a mix of rolling hills and thick olive groves – ideal for scenic walks. Plus, there's a tucked-away beach 10 minutes away on foot.
Design-wise, the apartments have a less-is-more charm. Each one comes with a kitchenette and a private balcony, which faces out towards the coast or hillside.

You can cool off in the swimming pool, which you’ll find lined with sunloungers in the middle of the gardens.
There’s a beach nearby, which you can reach in a 15-minute walk down some steps. It has a few umbrellas and a restaurant up the hill. And, because it's off the beaten track, you won’t struggle to find somewhere to lounge Read More

Food & Drink
Continental breakfast spreads are laid out in the morning, so you can pile up a plate with eggs, sausages and locally made bread. For in the evenings, you’ve got a fully equipped kitchenette to rustle up meals.
There are a couple of family-run tavernas in the surrounding area, and you can get to them in a 15-minute stroll. Rustic Greek souvlaki and views of the olive groves go hand-in-hand here, so be sure to take your food al fresco. Read More

The bar serves late-night drinks, which you can sip on around the pool or up on your private balcony.

Facility Summary
These apartments have taken a less-is-more approach to holidaying. There’s a swimming pool and a sunbathing terrace in the gardens. The restaurant dishes up breakfast spreads, and the bar’s open all day.

All rooms here come with a kitchenette and a bathroom with shower and hairdryer, as well as air-conditioning*, a safe*, a TV and free Wi-Fi. You'll have a terrace or balcony, too, depending on what floor you're on. Studios are available and can sleep up to three people, plus there's one bedroom apartments which can sleep up to four.

    I've been wondering this my whole life. Why do people wait until we have summery weather at home, then immediately spend large amounts of money to go somewhere unbearably summerier?

    Is it simply because people are coded automatons, and follow the traditions layed down before them?

    (the answer is YES, before you answer incorrectly l

    Since you asked I’ll give you a few “incorrect” answers:

    1). School hol prison. Prior to having kids I’d avoid peak season. I’d rather take the chance of a bit of bad weather over a resort at near full capacity. Actually, whilst paying double is painful, it’s the fact the experience is much better when resorts are at 50% capacity which is the most painful. In the past we’ve been lucky enough to be the only people in a safari camp, or on an island with only 3 other couples. That ain’t happening until our stint in school
    hol prison is over now

    2) Yes there are other school hols, but they are much shorter. When you have to fight for leave and/or want to go for 2 weeks, generally it means you have to go during the longer summer break.

    3) You can find warm sea temps if you go long haul, but short haul you generally have to go in summer. One of my frustrations is most European resorts don’t have heated pools. So whilst ambient temps are perfectly good in shoulder season, most people won’t be dipping in and out of the pool and definitely not the sea.

    4) Staycations are punitively expensive by comparison (atleast until recently). In the past I’ve looked at how much I’ve spent over short breaks in the UK and thought I could have spent a week at a decent resort with guaranteed good weather and warm sea/pool. Cost of F&B adds up really quickly in the UK.

    5) Our weather is less predictable than many summer hot spots. For example I took my daughter on a day out on Wednesday, it was pretty cold by late afternoon. If you’re going to take a week or two off and spend a lot of money,  it’s hardly surprising people choose to go somewhere they are virtually guaranteed good weather.

    Sometimes, everyone else is not actually thick, they have actually had the same bright idea as you and then realised it wasn’t as clever as they first thought (edited)

    Having been looking at flights for school hols, this is actually pretty decent even if you were to only use the flights.

    Absolute heat! However only just returned from Svoronata yesterday enjoyed every minute very relaxing. Absolutely nothing to do for kids though 1 shop near the apartments and 1 shop near Ammas beach so unless you hire a car it would be difficult 😩 more an adult resort for relaxation x

    They're going already. Kefalonia airport has built a second terminal to facilitate the droves coming to the island. Be warned of you plan on doing any driving however. The roads are from the 1950's and are about as wide enough for a house drawn cart. Also, a vast number of restaurants are massive tourist traps.

    Been in Kefalonia last summer. Public transport is pathetic, and taxis are expensive, and many interesting places are all over the island,so the only realistic option is hiring a car. The cheapest we could find was around 50 euros/day, but me and my partner really enjoyed driving there, and yes, we had to stop couple of times waiting the sheep crossing the road We always check prices beforehand in the restaurants and try to find places where the locals go, so no unpleasant surprises and food was good and not very expensive.
