A narrow country road from Nidri, on the east coast, climbs a hillside of olive and citrus groves for 3 kilometres to reach the small village of Paliokatouna. Here, and in other nearby hilltop villages, a traditional and unhurried way of life survives.
Villa Helena lies between the villages of Paliokatouna and Neochori. The villa has dramatic panoramic views over Nidri and the offshore islands of Skorpios, Sparti, Skorpithi, Meganissi and across the sea to the Greek mainland.
The villa has recently been upgraded with a new sitting room and kitchen. Pool terraces incorporate two large pergolas for comfortable outside dining.
