Dear Korinna, Pavlos, Eleni, Sergie, Nina,
You all have made our dreams come true in so many ways. You all have gone above and beyond to make all of us feel so welcome. You made our wedding day the best day of our lives. Nothing could have been done more than what you all did. We are in love with Andros and all of you. We are all planning our return. Your beautiful villas are exactly that beautiful and amazing. But you all are beautiful, loving, caring and amazing. Thank you so much from all of us to all of you, your Irish Family,

We have spent a wonderful week at the villa. It was our first time in Andros and we loved the island. We just couldn’t decide whether to spend more time at the villa or exploring the island. The place, the food, the weather, the atmosphere- everything was perfect! Thank you!

Dear Korinna and Pavlos, Sergey and Nina,
We can hardly believe how lucky we are to have found and to have chosen your beautiful villa for our family holiday. We have had a wonderful time from the minute of your warm welcome here to the very end. It has been heavenly. We have felt so completely relaxed and all of our adventures in Andros have been special. We have found this an incredible, beautiful, peaceful, and friendly Island. We have visited Andros/Chora, and finally found the viewpoint from which to see the lighthouse. The architecture and the town are charming. Batsi is equally lovely, more traditional in its style, but so many cool, fine places to explore. We windsurfed at Agios Petros, lovely beach bar, we crossed the island to get to Zorkos beach, where the sea swept us (Graham) off our feet. Beyond Fellos, Kourtaki beach is almost empty and the perfect place to watch the sun go down. Everywhere we have eaten well and been greeted with warmth and friendliness. And we have adored every moment at this most lovely and beautifully designed villa. The pool has been great. Sergey and Nina have looked after us with unbelievable discretion and Korinna thanks for your help, patience and guidance with every request. Cannot believe how blessed this time, has been for us. Thank you!!

This amazing villa was the one we chose for our family set together, coming from the UK, France, Canada. An idyllic spot, unspoilt and very beautiful. We had a wonderful week, ok too short but full of fantastic experiences. It was hard to tear ourselves away from the villa, so beautifully appointed & furnished with everything that we could wish for. Korinna, you have thought all of everything in all aspects-comfortable beds, plenty of seats to sit around, kitchen facilities that anyone could need, lovely table for eating out on the veranda, a pool, all the things that anyone might need for outdoor experience. We were constantly surprised by more & more things as we discovered then. Thank you for a truly wonderful week which we can now add to our list of memories of the Greek Islands. A very memorable one. PS: Forgot to mention Sergey, Nina, who were a wonderful surprise & did amazing job of looking after the villa while we were here. Thank you!

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. We loved the house, we loved the island and greatly appreciate the warm and gentle care of all of you. Our children had a great time too!

We had a wonderful time here in Andros and greatly enjoyed our home on the hill. I am sure we will be back. Thank you for welcoming us here.

5 jours inoubliables, de pures vacances fairients dans une villa où il fait bon vivre. Toute notre petite famille était très contente de son séjour.

Famille V

We wanted something special to share with our adult sons and their wives on the occasion of our fiftieth wedding anniversary so we searched carefully and took advice from travel professionals in Greece. We have leased Villas in multiple countries but never trusted doing so in Greece, though we visit Greece almost every year. We are so delighted we made the decision to follow our instincts for we were rewarded with a villa that was just outstanding in every way. As everyone who has been in a villa knows that critical moment is when the several couples come together to decide who will be in each bedroom. Just one indication of just how outstanding the rooms are – each with their own character — that when the three couples had that awkward first conversation the three rooms most preferred by each couple were all different with no overlap. Everyone was able to reside in their first choice accommodation the rooms are each that wonderful. But the real stand out is all the space outside the bedrooms. Well appointed decks overlooking spectacular views, augment the spacious living rooms – yes plural, one living room on each floor — with two kitchens to allow multiple cooks to prepare the supper at the same time. A rocky road connects the Villa to the valley below and while bumpy the road is perfectly safe and provides a nice transition to the secluded villa perched high up overlooking all below. Be sure to hire a strong jeep type vehicle – you can use taxis to get back and forth to the beach and the nearby port town, but we enjoyed our two jeep vehicles. The true bonus feature of this villa is the generous spirit and warm hospitality of the owner reflected in the onsite assistance provided by her staff who live nearby. By the time we left we felt that the only question that remained was when we would return.

Eustace-Washington D.C

I think that my week in Greece could not be as perfect as it was without this beautiful house. A marvelous place. Thanks for all. I hope we’ll be back as soon as possible!


The villa has more than lived up to our expectations and we have loved all facilities. We have found Andros to be a delightful island. The nearby beach was wonderful for early morning swim. We decided Gavrio was the nicest town of the three we visited: Batsi, Chora and Gavrio.


Ευχαριστούμε για την υπέροχη φιλοξενία στο υπέροχo αυτό σπίτι. Ευχόμαστε πάντα επιτυχίες και καλή συνέχεια!!  Υποσχόμαστε να ξανάρθουμε σύντομα!

Αγαπημένοι μας φίλοι, Σας ευχαριστούμε απο την καρδιά μας για τη θερμή φιλοξενία σας. Περάσαμε στο θαυμάσιο αυτό σπίτι αξέχαστες μέρες. Όμως ηταν ιδιαίτερη χαρά μας να βρεθούμε με τα παιδιά και τα εγγόνια σας σε μια ζεστή οικογενειακή ατμόσφαιρα. Είμαστε πολύ τυχεροί που έχουμε τη φιλία σας.

D’être si bien occupés de la maison . Merci pour les marveilleuses vacances!!


This is such a lovely place; it shows that it was made with lots of love and care. We enjoy our stay here a lot, the surroundings, the mountains, and the lovely Fellos beach. We definitely hope to be back soon in this place that made us feel like home! Thank you so much Vasilis and Aliona for your impeccable hosting and taking care of every need we had!

Marrianna, Yiorgos, Michalis, Lassie

This magic place made us feel we were to heaven. We could certainly taste the sky, water, mountains and sun that inhabited in all my childhood myths. This is a truly wonderful place and it honours you, both as owners and hosts. We will always remember this week even if we come back again (which we hope to happen). I’ll tell all my friends and family about this special place in the Cyclades and I’m sure that you’ll have us back.

Grecia, Jake, Sofia, Lucas and Grace D. From London, US, Spain

We had a truly memorable and wonderful stay in this lovely villa. It is a memorable location, beautifully furnished with furniture with crofter , yet so homely! Thanks to Korinna and Pavlos for big rich warm hosts , especially in answering email messages and helping with booking & special meals, restaurants etc and translation for Vassilis whenever we needed help but had problems communicating. Your warmth and generosity & spirit are forever written in our hearts. And thanks to Vassilis and Aliona for your hard work in keeping the villa clean and tidy day after day , and answering our needs. We feel so blessed to have been able to stay in such a great place and meeting so many wonderful people while at Andros. May this place continue to be a bless to all who stay here.

Just came back from a dream vacation! The villa was far beyond anything we expected! The pool, facilities, maintenance and attention to detail was superb. The help and service we got from Korrina the owner was like nothing I have encountered before, one of our best vacations! The ultimate get away. A perfect 10. Can’t wait to come back!!


The villa location is very special and we have really enjoyed the island, meeting the delightful people including our property home takers who have looked after us very well.

From Dublin, Ireland

Nobility, high aesthetics and a cosy atmosphere. A unique place to stay, an unforgettable island. Thank you very much.

Beautiful villa sites in a great location, a fantastic week in Andros where we discovered the beaches and super taverns. Your house has made this, a super base to be in, and the villa home caretakers are a definite plus!

From London

Merci à tous pour votre gentillesse et disponibilité.


We have enjoyed every minute of our stay here at this beautiful well organized villa. Thank you, it has been perfect and there is everything here you could wish for. We have visited beautiful beaches and the main town and everyone is so friendly. Thank you.

We had a great time in the villa and the island of Andros, the villa and the facilities are excellent!

From the UK

Wow! We can’t say thanks enough for our lovely VACATION! We all want to relocate to Andros – the people, the food, the beaches, sun, wind, the Incredible Villa, and lastly its owners Korinna, Pavlos. You have made our stay magical and tears are in my eyes because we must leave! THANK YOU! EFHARISTO! We will be back…!!

Ατμόσφαιρα ζεστή και φιλική από την πρώτη στιγμή. Χώροι εξαιρετικής αισθητικής και λειτουργικότητας. Αντικείμενα διαλεγμένα με σκοπό να σε κάνουν να αισθανθείς άνετα και χαλαρά. Αύρα θετικής ενέργειας παντού. Ευχαριστούμε θερμά για την καταπληκτική εβδομάδα που ζήσαμε στο φιλόξενο σπίτι σας. Να είστε πάντα καλά!

Thank you for the warm welcome and everything you did for us in this magical place! We enjoyed our stay, we loved the island, and we will probably be back one day! We loved “Grias Pidima” beach, and we loved the Greek traditional food!

The group from Romania

We spent 5 wonderful weeks. Even though we were the first tenants in this house, we were impressed by the attention to every detail. Your hospitality was impeccable and we mostly appreciated the quality, the discreetness and the warmness. We want to thank and congratulate you for what you have created.

Dimitris, Errika, Anna Lilian and Christina

Those who have the opportunity to call Andros their home are indeed blessed. For the rest of us we must accept the reality of having merely called it home for a brief time. Helias has been more than a home to us for the week, it has been an escape, a treasure, a spot which we will forever recall as a family with joy and fondness. Not only have been the warm hospitality of Korinna when we arrived, but the steady and invisible work of Vasillis and his expectant bride. I can only hope that we should be privileged enough in this lifetime to make a return trip to visit the “tavernes”, swim in the secluded beaches, sock in the captivating views and enjoy the music and culture of this amazing place. What a special place!

In questo bellissimo posto lasciamo parte del nostro cuore. Queste due settimane passate insieme ci rimarranno per sempre impresse. E quando da lontano riprenseremo al limpido mare di Andros all allegria delle giornate passate in questa casa, e a le grandi aventure stento riusciremo a trattenere le lagrime…

The Italians

Rarely in life are we given experiences that live up in every way to our expectations. Our time in this lovely villa is one of those rare moments. From our arrival at the port to this moment of departure, each day, every minute has been a memory to savor. We will never forget the kindness, the warm welcome of Korinna, none the silent but constant attention of Vassilis. Most of all, we take away the photographs in our minds eye of the visit from the decks overlooking the sea. Until we return we will be sustained by our memory of this special place.

Carol and Theodore – Washington DC

We can hardly believe that two weeks have already gone by! We are on our way back to Rome this morning and last night our children were already asking us “Please can we come back next year?”. We will truly miss this magical place. Your hospitality and your beautiful home have made our stay in Andros all the more enjoyable. We will keep fond memories of our late dinners down in Andreas Taverna and our frequent trips to “Zorkos”, our favorite beach (and we have explored quite a few!). We were particularly delighted by the lack of tourist crowds and the authentic kindness of everyone we came across on the island. Again many thanks. Maybe we will see you again next year!

The villa is one of a small complex of three hill top properties about 15 minutes’ drive from the port of Gavrio on the island of Andros. Whilst it is part of this small complex this luxury villa is secluded and private with every facility you could wish for. My family have just spent a week there and we had an amazing time. There were six adults in our party and all three couples had their own room with private bath or shower facilities. The bedrooms were beautifully furnished with lots of cupboard space and air conditioning. The kitchen was well equipped and all common rooms were tastefully decorated and furnished to a very high standard. There was also plenty of outside space with two outside dining areas big enough to accommodate eight people and a barbecue. The swimming pool area was immaculately kept with a good supply of sunbeds. The villa was serviced every day by staff who were discrete and friendly, they were flexible enough to service the villa only when we were not there, and unlike any other villa I’ve ever stayed in, they made beds and disposed of any rubbish, making it feel like the perfect mixture between a villa and a hotel. The owners (Korinna and her husband), were charming from my very first communication with them. They helped with booking ferry tickets and car hire prior to our holiday, greeted us at the port on arrival and even came to see us on our last evening to make sure that we had enjoyed our holiday, and to give us a gateau which Korinna had kindly made for us – delicious! Our only tiny criticisms – the nearest taverna and beach were a short drive away, and not within walking distance for us, and we picked a week when whilst it was hot and sunny, it was also very windy. The later was a mixed blessing as most of the time it helped to keep you cool and to make the heat more bearable, but on occasion, it made it a little difficult to relax by the pool. We loved this villa, and this beautiful island and we will definitely be back.


We have been charmed by the Island. It was a good time for our family to stay at your place. We shall like to say Thank you

We are connected to Andros, visiting every year, and it was obvious for us to have our wedding here on this beautiful island of the Cyclades. Andros is clearly a special place, made by the kindness of the wonderful and friendly islanders. The perfect get away. And with the Villa Helias, we found the perfect location for the ceremony and our honeymoon. Although it may sound like a cliché, but the property owners Korinna and Pavlos are really amazing people. As you can imagine, as foreigners having a wedding on an island requires quite some organization. We are so happy, having had Korinna and Pavlos on our side. They were entirely dedicated in their support during the whole process. Right from the first contact by mail, they were thrilled to help us with our wedding here at the magical Villa Helias. They shared their ideas and expertise regarding the organization, and supported us with the local municipal, the legal paperwork, and even made it happen that the Mayor consummated the legal marriage act right here at the beautiful garden of the Villa. They provided us with the equipment needed for the celebration at the Villa, and were actually here to support us with the preparation of the arrangement of the table for 30 guests. And Korinna and Pavlos did it all in their unique warm-hearted way which made us feel like family rather than tenants. True hospitality by a wonderful couple. The minute you enter Villa Helias, you feel like coming home. You want for nothing in the Villa, everything you need is there. Obviously, Korinna and Pavlos paid attention to details and selected all with love, but without being pretentious, and lacking the sterility of other five star hotels. It is just like we said, coming home. We have been to many places around the world and met many people, but Korinna and Pavlos are truly special. They walk the talk and everything they do, they do it with their heart. We are really grateful to have met them. The Villa Helias rests exposed at the top of the hill, with an amazing and spectacular view into the other hills, the valley, and the ocean. You watch the island as it is, pure, authentic, and honest. Just sitting on the veranda makes you forget troubles at work, makes you even forget, at all. It just invites you to sit there and be while watching the surrounding in green, and in blue and in rocks. And then there are Vasilis and Alonia, lovely and wonderful people and impeccable caretakers. They are discreet, but always reachable, keeping the Villa perfect while you are out. Thank you all for a picture perfect wedding, for your kindness, and a wonderful vacation here in the Villa Helias and on the island Andros.

Ariane and Eric

A fantastic location and fabulous villa to hold a very special family get-together. We’ve all enjoyed Andros, the beaches, the tavernas , the Mythos & the Ouzo. A big thanks to our very kind hosts who provide a very comfortable & well appointed villa, to Vassilis and Aliona for looking after us, to Andros for the hospitality , the sunshine & the wind. If you come to stay here, Ι hope that you too leave, feeling you’ve enjoyed a splendid place, and have as many great memories to take back home as we do.

Srew, Mary, Liam and Daniel – Scotland, Ireland and Wales

Merci pour tout!

Vacilli, Alliona et Erasmia

A beautiful Greek island, a lovely home , a wonderfully gracious host made for such special memories! Thank you for providing such wonderful home from which we were able to explore Andros.

Kyk and Tracy – Newport Beach, CA

Everyone extremely friendly and helpful, from initial booking and throughout stay, organizing car rental, cot, yoga and massages. Lovely villa too-everything you need!

O’Brien Family

When I stepped on the gravel at the entrance, I marveled at the amazing villa and spectacular view. Andros is a beautiful island, with its scenic walks along its astounding hills, to little remote beaches and spectacular mountains. Thank you to Vassilis & Aleona for the warm welcome, taking care of us, and making this a very special holiday.

Simi, Chaan, Johannes and Giulia

Wow! A bit of heaven on earth at Etheria. Thank you Vassilis & Aliona for your precious service. May the Lord refresh you both as you refreshed us. Great villa, wonderful weather, awesome views & sunsets (just over the hill), gracious people, outstanding food – we leave sad to go but recharged – a perfect vacation!

Myron & Carol

Myself and my husband booked this Villa last September in order to host the unique event of our wedding party. The party took place at the garden of the Villa which has been exceptionally decorated by the professional event stylist Meletis Pagonis ( for this special night. The owner of the Villa Mrs. Korina Zekkou has been very helpful during the organization process and our stay at the Villa. She has offered us everything that we needed for this night. It was the first time that the garden of the Villa was used for such a big event (hosting around 100 guests) and thus the challenge was high. All of our guests were impressed about the uniqueness of the location and the quality of the exterior space of the Villa. We have created wonderful memories, we feel connected to the Helias Villa and we will definitely go back one day!


Σε αυτόν τον υπέροχο τόπο και σε αυτό το μοναδικό σπίτι περάσαμε τις ομορφότερες διακοπές του Πάσχα. Σήμερα φεύγουμε έχοντας υπέροχες αναμνήσεις. Ευχαριστούμε ιδιαίτερα τους Β + Α για την φροντίδα και το χαμόγελό τους.


What a fantastic week- three generations of our family have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Andros. Can’t believe how friendly everyone is…

From UK

We really enjoyed staying in your beautiful villa. We have had two weeks of luxury. Andros is an amazing, friendly and relaxing island and we hope to come back and stay in this villa again. All the best and we will see you next time!

Edd & Clare

We once again had an incredible month in this Villa! It was absolutely stunning! Our stay here in Andros was full of excitement, enjoyment, and most of all relaxation all of which was ideally complimented by the luxury of this Villa. This Villa has proven itself to be a safe haven of joy that can only be held by a place that feels like home. This stay cannot be summed up in one word, but the closest that approaches this grand position, is the word incredible.

Maria, Sergey and 3 kids – Estonia

What a wonderful Villa! We’ve enjoyed every minute of our stay! Thank you for the warm welcome, great service and all of your help in arranging our visit to Andros; it’s been truly memorable. Perfect weather, beautiful sunsets and delicious food – We’d love to visit again in the future.

Kerry, James, Charlotte and Florence

We stayed at Villa Etheria with our two children (aged 2 and 4) and some friends (who had 1 and 3 year olds). The villa was perfect: beautifully furnished to a very high spec and well maintained, with a fantastic pool. The views down to Fellos beach (a short 5 minute drive or 2.5km run / walk away) are fantastic, and the beach there, was perfect for the children. The villa is well located, a short drive from the ferry port of Gavrio where there’s a supermarket and plenty of tavernas. Also not far from, O Kosis, a well regarded taverna up in the hills, although our favourite was the one down by Fellos. I would heartily recommend the villa. If you’re looking for a bit of peace and quiet, it’s ideal – we barely heard a peep from the other two villas above and below Etheria (which also looked fantastic) such is the clever design and landscaping. It’s worth noting that it was very windy when we were there, but this was actually a blessing – it kept things cool, kept mosquitos away, and the villa is so well designed that all the outdoor areas are very well sheltered by either the building, screens, or trees / shrubs in the garden. Lastly, it was perfect for two families – we took the ground floor while our friends took the top one, with the middle floor devoted to a kitchen and open plan living area. So you can have a bit of privacy from each other if you want. All in all, probably the best villa we’ve rented in Greece (having previously stayed in Crete and Cephalonia). The slightly elongated journey to get there (plane, car, ferry, car) was well worth it and the cold beers and wine on arrival, not to mention a delicious lasagne, certainly did the trick. Thank you so much Korinna for a wonderful holiday. We’ll definitely be back!


It has BEAUTY…inside the villa and outside!!! Inside because it has been decorated with such taste and outside because of the magical views. It has LUXURY and COMFORT!! It has PRIVACY and SPACE – Situated on top of a hill one feels like one is on top of the world ….. this is total privacy!! And, with 4 bedrooms and all the sitting areas, it has all the space a family may need. It has PEACE!! No sounds apart from the welcoming sounds of nature. It has a garden, a barbeque and a lovely POOL with amazing views!! It has all the amenities one may need including WiFi…. It has GOOD SERVICE feels well taken care of without feeling that the couple taking care of the property are too imposing ..but, nevertheless, they are friendly, very helpful and the villa is spotless…. Having breakfast on the verandah with views all around of the hills, valley and sea is a real treat….You won’t want to leave!!! And, the island of ANDROS is really special as it is un-spoilt by too many tourists. It has beautiful beaches and Chora, the capital, is a little jewel. In the one week that we were there, we managed to drive all around this lovely island, we even swam in the sea although it was still relatively cool and we visited many of the villages and monasteries. After our really happy stay in beautiful Heliades Villas, we highly recommend it to anyone who wants all the above when going on a holiday. Considering the BEAUTY, SPACE and LUXURY of this holiday home, it is well worth it’s price…. Thank you to everyone who made our stay sooo wonderful…hope to be back soon!!

Andros est devenue notre île préférée! Mille mercis. à très bientôt!

Alekos et Maroussa

We have enjoyed every minute of our stay here at this beautiful well-organized villa. Thank you, it has been perfect and there is everything here you could wish for. We have visited beautiful beaches and the main town and everyone is so friendly. Thank you

Ajay, Gill and Clea

We have had an unforgettable, amazing month at our summer holiday at the villa. Andros island has proved to be a unique place combining wonderful weather without harassing heat and humidity (no conditioner needed), with tight breeze, luxurious virgin beach, where even in July we could be all by ourselves and could enjoy the purest waters, marvelous views and absolute privacy. Food product in the biomarket, supermarket and froutaria is a dream of adept of eutrophy and all natural nutrition. The restaurants are very democratic, hospitable and always have local food of wonderful quality. The tavern near the villa can disincline you to cook yourself. But.. you will love to cook in the wonderful kitchen, and more breakfast enjoying a spectacular view at the same time! Needless to say about grill at the barbeque place – it’s a must! The villa itself is a real treasure where everything is thought out. The level of comfort just dazzles! There is no feeling emasculated coldness you have in luxurious rooms of hotels. Everywhere in the villa you feel like being at home where all the things are selected with love. Special thanks to Vasilis and Aliona for a personal touch and everyday service, which makes your stay at the villa even more comfortable. We would like to thank the owners Mrs. Korinna and Mr. Pavlos for a superb rest, for their hospitality and do hope we will come again here!

Maria, Sergey and 3 kids – Estonia

Dear Pavlos and Korina, How can we describe this magic place and island? We spent a beautiful week of fun and relaxation. Waking up in the morning and seeing your beautiful sea is amazing. Thank you so much for everything!!!!

Angelo and Andrea

The place was just marvellous! As we arrived, we fell in love with our wonderful Villa Etheria immediately! Everything was just the way it was presented. We stayed for five days, and there was nothing we could complain of. The quality of the stuff was exceptional! The perfectly clean Villa comes with a private pool in its lovely garden. The living area with the kitchen is great. It was our main place to meet. The kitchen contains everything needed. Together with the additional BBQ-grill in the garden, we mostly cooked and grilled by ourselves. All in all, I think we got very lucky with our choice of stay in Andros and I would definitely recommend it to anyone that wants to visit, being family, couple or a group of friends. We fell in love with this wonderful place and we’ll definitely come back here whenever we visit Andros next time.


For once so much better than the pictures – and the pictures & photos are amazing! We were overwhelmed by the luxuriousness of the place. Lovely and spacious. Met all our needs and beyond. Thank you Korinna for providing such a gem on such a beautiful island. Our 4th visit to Andros, so I think we’ll be back! Thanks also to Vasilis & Aliona – perfect caretakers. We are sad to have to leave but look forward to being here again. With many thanks for a lovely time

Notre séjour à Andros a été l’un des plus agréable. La villa Heliades est spacieuse, propre, confortable et superbe. Conforme à ce qu’on peut y voir sur les photos. La vue depuis la terrasse est à couper le souffle. Truffés de petits recoins pour profiter des vacances. Nous avons été très bien accueillis. Korinna, la propriétaire nous a confectionné un délicieux repas lors de notre arrivée le soir. L’île d’Andros est authentique. Loin des touristes en masse. La nuit, nous entendons les chèvres et le coq chanter. La cuisine grecque est délicieuse et l’accueil des Grecques est formidable. Les Tavernes sont ouvertes à tout heure. Nous avons voyagé avec nos filles. Les enfants sont des rois sur l’île. En quête d’autentisme et de calme, nous conseillons vivement cette villa et cette île qui mérite le détour. Encore un grand merci à Korinna, les cuisiniers et les gardiens pour votre chaleureux acceuil.


What an absolute pleasure! Thank you ever so much for contributing to a lovely holiday. The villa is truly beautiful and the maintenance is spectacular. You really have made it a memorable experience. All the best and thanks again… Hopefully we can visit in the future.
