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.

My husband and I are civil engineers. We come from Lefkas, Ionian Islands and 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.
Maria purchased this Villa in 1985
Why Maria chose Apollonii
The land was passed down through our parents and we felt we had an obligation to take full advantage of it.
What makes this Villa unique
Late in the evenings, we enjoy a lot, among others, the view of the sailing boats return to their base, while we are having a drink by the pool. It's so lively and tranquil together. It makes me wonder of how lucky we all are being able to enjoy such beautiful surroundings.

A fantastic location, with amazing views yet close to beach and beautiful fishing bay.
Villa Penelope is in a great location. The views are fantastic of the pretty harbour with the mountainous backdrop, whilst being so close to the beach, tavernas and bay. The villa itself is faultless - all that we needed as a family of four. It is completely private too. The children loved the pool , as did we! It was such a relaxing holiday , centred around the pool and having brunch/lunch and supper at the very good tavernas just a short stroll away (5minutes) with fresh fish every day. We would definitely recommend this villa .
Perfect location. Private but very close to the village.
The villa is well equipped and laid out.
Beautiful place in Sivota Lefkas Greece
Sivota is charming enough but Villa Penelope positioned at the very end of the bay enjoys a great position. Great view across the bay to the tavernas yet a 10 minute stroll past the Marina and you are there.
Added to that it is a charming building next door to its bigger sister Christina. The pool is lovely and everything you'd want is provided.
We really enjoyed our stay and would return in a heart beat with no worries.
Fantastic villa holiday in a great location
Villa PeneIope is a wonderful villa in an idyllic spot. It is everything it says on the details and more. We thoroughly enjoyed all the bars and restaurants in Sivota and the towns close by. We didn’t have the best of weather all of the time, but that really didn’t matter because Villa Penelope is a fabulous place to spend time and relax and watching the thunder and ligthning storms from the living room was astonishing. The village of Sivota is excellent for eating, and is so reasonabaly priced. The people were so friendly making us feel at home. In particular the Yacht Bar where they accomodated us with the 2015RWC. The villa itself is high quality, well maintained and well laid out, it has everything you need. We enjoyed our holiday so much we are booking again for next June.
Wish I was the owner of such amazing property!
Undoubtedtly, Villa Penelope was one of the most beautuful villas that we have ever been to. And we have very high expectations from the properties that we book.
Its not easy to describe the feeling that the villa and its amazing location offer you. The architecture of the villa is great, for a familly of 4 it is very comfortable and ergonomic. The swimming pool is lovely with the perfect size for the whole family to play inside.
And the location... Oh my god... I totally loved it... It is built at the end of the picturesque village of Sivota.. On your left you have the forest, and on your right you are completely isolated from the other Villa (which is at a lower level) by trees and plantation.. And the view is perfect, so calming and tranquil, looking down on the small marina...
The fact that you have everything within reach by foot, just by going down the stone stair and walking towards the center, it is priceless, while at the same time you feel totally isolated and no one can see you, and you have all the privacy that you could need.
I really was amazed by Villa Penelope. The amenities covered our needs, we enjoyed the BBQ outside, and overall we had a great stay that I wish would have lasted longer than a week.
Thank you for the hospitality!
We had a very nice and relaxing holiday and loved
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.
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.
