VILLA PENELOPE

Syvota Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa with private pool, at the edge of a pretty fishing village

At the south part of Lefkada island, 30 km from the city, built at the deepest recess of a bay, Sivota fishing village charms all the visitors. When the small marina is full, the sailing boats moor “arodo” (means off-shore), creating a magnificent scenery.

Inside an olive field, at the edge of the village, in front of the small beach, we created “ARODO | SEASIDE VILLAS”: A independent, luxury villa with private pool. There are excellent views across to the bay of Sivota and as all amenities are within 100m car hire is not necessary.

The villa has been recently completed to very high standards.

“Arodo” offers crystal blue waters, unspoilt nature, calmness, comforts and luxury. A peaceful shelter for unforgettable holidays.

Details for Villa Penelope 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 4, 2 Bathrooms

Our “little” one… 95 m2 that can host 4 guests. Extending in a ground floor it consists of a living room, a kitchen, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It stands out thanks to its tall wooden roofs, the minimal decoration and its romantic atmosphere. Built at the highest point of the property, in direct contact with the neighbouring wood, the surrounding area and the pool, gives the guests the feeling of having everything close at hand. Nevertheless, if you want to dive in the sea, an impressive stone stair leads you to the small beach with the blue-green water.
Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

My husband and I are civil engineers. We come from Lefkas, Ionian Islands but we live in Athens. We have always wanted a beautiful holiday house at our hometown. So, we built “ARODO | SEASIDE VILLAS”. We named the villas after our daughters Christina and Penelope - in the meantime we have one more daughter, Vasiliki, but no other villa ;-) . We are proud to have used a lot of our energy, personal taste and technical knowlegde in completing “ARODO | SEASIDE VILLAS”.

We are very positive that our guests enjoy our villas as much as we do every summer.

WE HAD A VERY NICE AND RELAXING HOLIDAY AND LOVED

  • 4 of 5
The house is nicely situated on a hill overlooking the bay with all the ship moments. Very relaxing.
Outdoor furniture is good. The pool very inviting. It has been cleaned regularly.
Indoor furniture needs some upgrade in the kitchen, especially the table.
The two bedrooms at two sides of the house is well panned. One bath with tub is very comfortable, the other one very small, no room to put your stuff. After a shower, everything is wet. For two people water is ok, if there are more who want to have a shower at the same hour, there is not enough hot water.
There is a room to put your car and a gate around the property which we appreciated.
The organizational procedure was easy (reserve, pay, find the house, have instructions where to eat and what to see).
We would choose the house again.

FAMILY OF FOUR

  • 5 of 5
Villa Penelope is an absolutely wonderful property in the quiet village of Sivota. As a family of four, with one teenager and one toddler, we had a fantastic one-week stay and would love to come back again.

The villa matches the pictures and description on the website and is very stylish, comfortable, and well-maintained. Its perfect location guarantees absolute privacy, even from the neighbouring villa, whilst at the same time offering a lovely view over Sivota bay and the marina.

Driving from Bulgaria, we easily found the property by following the directions that Maria, the owner, had emailed us in advance. The next day we met the property managers Marino and Beate, who kindly brought us a baby-cot after we had forgotten to specify we would need one. They came once more during our stay to clean the pool, and were very friendly and helpful.

Before our departure, Maria had also emailed us some recommendations for restaurants, shops and things to see in the area (all with clear directions) and we enjoyed trying out the local restaurants in Sivota villlage. The food was excellent in all of them, but we particularly liked the restaurant closest to us, the Ionian tavern. The village also has some nice places for breakfast or a morning coffee, and a few bars for a drink at night, all very pleasant and lively.

If you have a car, Sivota is a perfect starting point for exploring the island and its wonderful beaches. For us, however, the quiet and comfort of the villa, the view, the wonderful pool, and the village at walking distance meant we mostly stayed in Sivota.

We had a very comfortable and relaxing stay in villa Penelope, and hope to be back here again in future.

BEAUTIFUL VILLA ..... AMAZING LOCATION....

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from our second two week stay at the beautiful Villa Penelope. Our first holiday in the villa was in 2012 and we knew then that it was a very special villa in a very special village and one that would draw us back again and again. We first stayed in Syvota in a hillside villa in 2011 and although the villa was lovely, we didn't want to drive to and from the village in the evening and so we set out to find a suitable villa in the village - and we found it ..... The location is just perfect, private and quiet enough to offer a relaxing and peaceful stay but only a minutes walk to the Yacht Bar and the wonderful food at the Ionian Taverna. The villa is finished to a very high standard and the pool and terrace area is large - the pool being bigger than most pools we have experienced in similar sized villas. The bottom terrace is a wonderful place to enjoy breakfast while watching Syvota "wake up" or for enjoying a drink to cool off in the shade during the day. Syvota is a picturesque village with very friendly locals and there are lots of excellent tavernas and bars to enjoy whilst strolling around the quayside. There are two bars in particular that we love - both have wonderful romantic music to create the perfect ambiance for chilling - (you will easily find them on your first night there) .... Maria, the owner was really helpful and organised our taxi from the airport on both occasions - however, there is ample parking at the villa if you want to have a car to explore the Island ..... We love this villa and Syvota is a beautiful place, so put the two together and you have the ingredients for a truly fabulous holiday - you will not be disappointed if you stay in Villa Penelope and I am sure, like us, you will want to return for many years to come....

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
Many thanks for a wonderful stay in Villa Penelope. We thought the villa was beautiful, with a lovely pool and in a great location – very peaceful yet close to all that Sivota had to offer. Marino and Beate were very helpful and the maids and gardening/pool people were all delightful.

Thank you so much – we had a brilliant holiday!

FIRST CLASS

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a week in Villa Penelope and without hesitation we can say that is is first class. The property is as described, the photos are accurate and the standard of fittings and furniture is very good.



The descriptions of Sivota in other reviews are well judged and the resort provides an enviable mixture of tranquility with a reasonable choice of local tavernas. A two week stay without transport may stretch the choice of shopping and eating options a little thinly but certainly for a week of peace and quiet the villa and village are excellent. Add in a car and you have a perfect base for exploring the south and middle of the island.



The location of the property is particularly good if you are seeking privacy. It is the last building on the east side of the village and has only the adjacent larger villa owned by the same couple as an immediate neighbour. That villa does offer accommodation for 8 and so complete peace and quiet cannot be absolutely guaranteed but the pool and gardens are completely private.



Over the last 25+ years we have rented accommodation in a variety of locations in Europe and North America. We can confidently say that Villa Penelope is in the top three of those and we can recommend it with complete confidence.

Sivota bay is a lush green area that charms the visitor by the first glimpse. The bay is a safe natural anchorage, very popular with yachts. When the small marina is full the yachts moor 'arodo' (means off-shore) creating a magnificent scenery.

Sivota fishing village has all the amenities for relaxed self-catering holidays. There are several restaurants and cafés, a supermarket, a pebbly beach all surrounded by great nature. All together can keep the visitor busy for several days and a car hire is not essential.

At the west side of Lefkada island there is a series of breathtaking beaches with crystal blue water. Famous beaches like Porto Katsiki, Egremni and Kathisma will never disappoint the visitor.

Vassiliki, a paradise for wind/kite surfing enthusiasts, is only 10 km from Sivota.

The idyllic bays of Lefkada and the little islands around are the perfect sailing waters. Sivota has a small marina and a boat slip to satisfy those very keen on sailing and boating.
