  • Beautiful contemporary villa
  • Magnificent sea views
  • Spacious outside dining
  • Beach tavernas 5min walk

Dinner on the terrace of this fine new property with the most beautiful views across the Ionian Sea to mainland Greece is a wonderful moment.  The house is beautifully contemporary, with three spacious en-suite bedrooms to suit a family or a group of friends. With a stunning pool and comfortable seating you can linger and savour the phenomenal views for as long as you wish.

Villa Heleni sits above Monodendri beach, a 400m sweep of white pebbles lapped by translucent turquoise sea. In spring and autumn it is a haven for those who prefer a relaxing sojourn with a scattering of like-minded visitors either dotted along the beach or sampling the fresh fish at one of Monodendri’s two waterside tavernas. In the height of summer, late July and August, Monodendri’s personality changes and a different clientele arrive. Families with teenage children, young couples and those who enjoy a more hedonistic lifestyle replace the Grecophiles who travel earlier in the season.

The beach is a mere five minute stroll down a meandering lane that finishes at Monodendri (longer on the uphill journey back). In the afternoon on hot August days music may sometimes be heard wafting up from the beach, but by late afternoon most sunworshippers have departed and you'll have time to enjoy a quiet cocktail in one of the two tavernas before they close before dinner.

Whilst maintaining its own independence and privacy, Villa Heleni can be rented along with Monodendri Blue and Thanelli to provide a spacious venue for an extended family gathering or a group of friends.

Customer feedback

We have had a lovely week in Paxos. The villa is in a great location and is very comfortable. The views are fantastic. We didn't stray too far (although nowhere is too far!) Monodendri beach, with it's amazingly clear sea, is a great place to spend the afternoon if you can dray yourself away from the pool. We hired a boat for the day and went around the island, stepping off briefly at Anti Paxos. We have looked after the Tabby cat (who has 5 kittens if you look over the wall to Monodendri Blue) - very cute. We are very sad to be going home, but hope to make a return visit soon. Hope you enjoy your holiday as much as we have.

We also had a fabulous time here. We've been to Paxos several times and it's always interesting to see the island from different view points. This was our first time at Villa Heleni and being so close to the beach, bars and restaurants at Monodendri was a real plus. We've taken on the baton from the previous guests and fed the visiting tabby cat. As they said, she is pretty adorable.
Don & Lizzie – August 2017

We always love going on holiday with Simpson Travel because we know they will always be attentive, friendly and caring, as well as having great quality properties, great local knowledge and lots of attention to detail.
Ms Clifton – August 2017

We have never 'done' packaged holidays in the past, but have over the past 4 years with Simpson. So why? Well, Simpson really do take the 'package' out of the 'package' and make it all so easy and personal with unobtrusive service. The backup is there in spades if you need or want it, but if you don't then hey, you are left alone as if travelling alone. The Villas are pretty much the best you will find anywhere in the world, all in all a pleasure which keeps us coming back for more. Thank you.
Mr Davis – July 2017

Wonderful place, fabulous reps.
Mrs Callaghan – June 2017

Our second annual family holiday with Simpson Travel and it was fabulous- again! Our holiday representatives were friendly, accessible (if you needed them) and very informative - every step of the way! Makes everything so much easier! All the extra bits requested, especially for the smallest one in our family, plus there were some additional touches such as a baby bath! Thank you all - we'll be back again in 2017!
The Lewis family – July 2016

I like Simpson Travel people, I like their sense of humour, I like their care and attention, I like them being in the background but oh so available and I like Simpson Travel properties. Someone somewhere pays a deal of attention to detail and it shows, it shows at every step of the journey and very clearly in the accommodation. You guys 'hit the spot' for us, you are people like us, you like the same things and have very high standards which I thank you for, you certainly don't disappoint and for me it is money very 'well spent', which is why we return to you year on year on year. Thank you, you make a difference.

I just got back from Paxos staying at Villa Heleni. Impressed doesn't even start to describe my feelings about the holiday. I was a little skeptical on doing Europe being a Caribbean connoisseur of many years, but Simpson Travel staff were totally impeccable. On arrival our hostess met us Airport, then another at the jetty in Paxos where our car awaited. We then got a welcome pack and even a little bag of Easter Eggs ! With great instructions to the Villa we made it and parked in the driveway of this beautiful Villa. The cleaners were great and we chilled out the moment we got there. The weather wasn't brill for the first couple of days but to be honest we didn't really care! When the time came a private ferry taxi was arranged and we were boosted by our Simpson Travel hostess to the front of a long public queue and boarded our water taxi with minimum wait. On arrival in Corfu we were met by two extremely friendly ladies from Simpson Travel with who again nothing was too much trouble. In the taxi to the airport I was just commenting to rest of my party of four how Simpson Travel really went that extra mile and we would definitely return again and use Simpson Travel, when the door opened and we were welcomed to the Airport arrivals by another Simpson Travel Agent, who promptly whisked us straight to the Club Check in and booked us in within minutes in front of the queues..... Fantastic Service, professional people managed by a clearly professional company. Well done Simpson Travel....Top Draw!

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.

There are few better ways of relaxing than on a luxury holiday in Paxos, where days fill up beautifully with sunbathing, swimming, snorkelling and dining in style, the sea just metres from your table. Amble through ancient olive groves and you’ll catch glimpses of startlingly turquoise bays, the dramatic west-coast cliffs or the Epiros Mountains. In spring, there’s also a haze of purple honesty, wild irises and lilies and a sky that’s alive with birdlife, from hawks to skylarks.

Complete the picture with a stay in one of our handpicked luxury villas, apartments or our unique Adult Only Simpson Hotels and make the most of this peaceful island.
