A brochure describing the attractions of the Ionian Islands to 13th century marauders might well have described Sivota on the south coast of Lefkada as: the perfect base for terrorising the local population. Completely landlocked, the narrow entrance, with its high promontory (excellent cannon emplacements) is almost invisible from the sea and easily defended. Sheltered from any wind, there is good mooring at the head of the freshwater bay with excellent opportunities for raiding the vineyards, olive groves and villages in the immediate vicinity. The local population, noted for their vigour and husbandry skills certainly make valuable slaves!
A few hundred years on, a more peaceful type of marine visitor is attracted to this enchanting inlet. The picturesque settlement with it's few tavernas and shops provides a popular anchorage for yachtsmen.
Two years ago Toula (the owner of the villas) decided that the amazing and uninterrupted views she so enjoyed should be shared with others and so a small group of three villas were built to her exact specifications taking full advantage of this idyllic, secluded spot. Villas Violetta and Toulipa are the larger two ideal for families or couples looking for the ultimate in seclusion with a view that is quite simply breathtaking.
Relaxing in the elegant infinity pool you get the impression you could swim straight into the crystal sea below. With the stunning views and stylish comfort, this villa enjoys a most enviable elevated and tranquil hillside setting looking out over the Ionian toward the small island of Arkoudi, with Meganissi and Ithaki in the distance completed by a stunning backdrop of the mountains of Epiros on the mainland.
Villas Toulipa AND Violetta are both equally outstanding as choices of retreat, each offering the same superb comfort with the advantage of being far enough away from the bustle of the town yet within easy walking or driving distance of shops and beaches. Their fabulous location provides absolute relaxation within the breathtaking panorama and vista of the picturesque Sivota bay. A leisurely 20 minute stroll will bring you into the traditional fishing harbour of Sivota, where you can enjoy a splendid meal or snack on the waterfront, do some shopping or just while away sunny afternoons as the harbour comes alive with the approaching yachts.
Both villas offer identical facilities. Outside the beautifully landscaped terraced areas overlooking the shimmering Ionian are spacious and delightfully planted with an array of Mediterranean plants, flowers and herbs, perfectly complimenting the beauty of nature beyond. There is plenty of space around the stunning pool which has been furnished with sun loungers and also an outdoor shower. With its many terraces and protected hideaways, the villa offers ample choices for those wishing to escape from or enjoy the sea breeze as well as plenty of room to get away from it all and indulge in total privacy. Perfect for al fresco living, furnished terraces take full advantage of the fabulous views and the traditional barbeque area is perfect for family meals or simply relaxing under an ancient olive tree with a good book and cold drink.
The design of the interiors have been carefully planned to again take full advantage of the spectacular views. Spacious, light and airy, this modern and stylishly furnished living/dining area and fully equipped kitchen reflect an understated contrast to the verdant and natural beauty of natures design outside. The lovely covered veranda leading from the living area is perfect for relaxing on the comfortable chairs in the shade. From the living room stairs lead up to the bedrooms, one twin and one double each with their own furnished balcony, both enjoying the spectacular views of Sivota Bay and beyond.
Whether you are looking for the ultimate in romantic seclusion or peace and tranquility for a superb family getaway Villas Toulipa and Violetta provide the perfect location and certainly won't disappoint.
