Villa Location
Surrounded by scenic countryside views, Villa Helanes is perfectly positioned for exploring the rest of Corfu island. Kids will love Aqualand, a nearby waterpark, or the famous golden Glyfada Beach. For more sandy options, explore the many crystal clear bays in Paleokastritsa. The town of Agios Ioannis will give you a taste of traditional Greek life with original buildings and olive groves. Evenings can be spent dining out at the numerous eateries of Corfu Town or browsing through the shops found in the narrow cobbled streets of the old town.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

Agios Ioannis has a mini market as well as a supermarket, ideal for topping up on holiday amenities. Corfu Town has markets selling fruit, vegetables and fish along with souvenir and boutique shops - perfect for indulging in some retail therapy.

Bars and restaurants

Just a 10 minute drive gets you to the pretty village of Pelekas, offering plenty of traditional tavernas with outstanding countryside views. Stroll through the village square in Doukades and browse the variety of bars and restaurants, 30 minutes' drive away. Of course, the cosmopolitan Corfu Town has a wide variety of both international and authentic Corfiot cuisine.


Glyfada Beach's soft golden sand and crystal clear waters are no hidden secret. As one of Corfu's most famous beaches, snack bars and tavernas are always on hand serving refreshments. Just next door to Glyfada is Kontogialos, a more secluded sandy haven. 30 minutes' north, Paleokatritsa has a plethora of sheltered sand and shingle bays. Explore these numerous coves by boat and find your own coastal oasis.

Family fun

Europe's 3rd largest water park, Aqualand, is just a few minutes' drive from the villa! With a wave pool and plenty of slides - everyone will be catered for. Villa Helanes' central position means a wide choice of fun activities are within easy reach. Try your hand at go-karting in the Ropa Valley and find out who really is the best driver in the family, or head into Ano Korakiana, 25 minutes' drive away, for a horse riding experience.

Places of interest

Corfu Town is home to 2 old fortresses. Steeped in history, these iconic buildings deliver a true taste of history, having been built by the Venetians. One was later occupied by British troops who built the impressive St George's Church. Discover the famous statues of Achilles at the Achilleon Palace, and wander through the grounds taking in the grandeur architecture - this is not to be missed and only 20 minutes' drive away.


There is a golf course approximately 3 miles away. This is in the centre of the island in the Ropa Valley, near the village of Ermones. It has a good reputation and is well maintained.

Other activities

Corfu has an endless list of activities to try and places to see - there truly is something for everyone. If you ramble through traditional villages and costal paths, you'll be rewarded with unforgettable views and amazing experiences.

Activities and things to do
There are 2 waterparks on the Island: Hydropolis on the outskirts of Acharavi on the north coast, and the larger Aqualand in Ag Ioannis, just outside Corfu Town. Both parks have a good selection of slides, pools and various refreshments available. Aqualand is by far the largest of the waterparks and in fact one of the largest waterparks in Europe with a big selection of rides and activities for all ages (including a very sedate 'lazy river' for older party members!) It has a couple of cafes and snack bars, a small shopping area and plenty of sun loungers and is open from 9am-8pm daily all Summer.


Self drive boat hire
The Corfu is an ideal location to hire a small boat and skipper yourself and family for the day to explore the many coves and beaches. There are a number of resorts where boats of several different sizes can be hired locally. Usually there are boats with tiller steering and ones with steering wheels. Most boats have a sun canopy. All boats have life vests and are fully prepared. You do not need a speedboat licence to drive a boat with an engine smaller than 25hp. Instruction can be given if required.
Paleokastritsa is commonly thought to be one of the most beautiful parts of Corfu. The main road leading into the resort is dotted with a choice of good tavernas, many with superb views over the rolling hills to the seafront. The resort also has a choice of excellent sandy beaches. Some of the smaller hidden beaches can only be accessed by boat, which you can hire to explore this area of coastline, or catch the water taxi. The area is popular with families, with a number of attractions. Aside from the beaches and stunning scenery, you can visit the blue water caves, hire a pedalo or even visit the local reptile house!
Pantocrator Mountain
The highest point of Corfu and standing majestically overlooking the North East corner of Corfu, Corfu Town and the mainland beyond.

One of the many beautiful driving routes on the island takes you up through several small villages including Spartillas, known (along with its sister village Lakones on the opposite coast) as 'the balcony of Corfu' because of its spectacular views.

Follow on through Strinillas, one of the original hidden villages, built out of sight of the coast and therefore the marauding pirates of the time and up a narrow road to Mount Pantocrator the highest point on the island at 906 metres.

There is also an adventurous drive from the North of the island, but this is best done in a four wheel drive vehicle.

The last section of the road is better walked by the nervous but the fantastic panoramic views from the monastry and café, at the top are well worth the effort.

Corfu Golf Club
Designed by the famous architect Donald Harradine the Corfu course has been praised by many as one of the best kept in Europe and he has blended the natural resources of the lovely Ropa Valley with man made hazards to make the course a good but fair test. It is as enjoyable for the scratch player as it is for the long handicap one. The course is open 7 days a week.

The magnificent greens of Penncross Bent are considered to be the finest in the Mediterranean, the treelined fairways and the sandtraps combined with several lakes and meandering streams, make an attractive picture against a backcloth of high hills. A new modern irrigation system keeps the golf course in excellent condition even through the hot summer months. Over the past 3 years the golf course and clubhouse has undergone a total renovation. Bunkers have been redesigned, deepened, drained and filled with white sand, shipped in from a nearby Greek island.

Suitable for all levels of player with qualified instructors on hand for beginners and equipment rental available. It is also ideally placed for families who perhaps don't all share the same interest in the sport being a mere 10 minute drive from Aqualand, the largest waterpark on the island, 20 minutes out of Corfu town and 10 minutes from the nearest beach at Ermones.

It has a large well-appointed clubhouse and restaurant and is open all year round.
