Costa del Sol
Set on the south east coast surrounded by hills, the small village of Sivota is often thought to be one of the most beautiful on the island. Centred around a picturesque marina lined with restaurants and tavernas, this idyllic spot is perfect for long, lazy lunches admiring the views. With the popular towns of Nidri and Vasiliki within easy reach, a villa in Sivota will provide a superb base to explore Lefkada.
Along the harbour you’ll find a handful of mini markets and gift shops where you can pick up daily essentials and souvenirs to take home. Larger supermarkets can be found less than 10 minutes’ drive away.
Dotted along the harbourside you’ll find a good choice of eateries, from traditional Greek tavernas to fresh seafood. Many of the restaurants offer outdoor seating where you can watch the boats bobbing on the water while you dine. There is also a chic cocktail bar, where you can kick back and relax with your favourite tipple.
You’ll find a number of small coves within easy driving distance, such as the sheltered bay of Mikros Gialos, offering calm waters and beautiful scenery. For a livelier scene, head to the bustling town of Vasiliki, with a wide pebble beach dotted with beachfront taverna. From here you can organise kite surfing and diving, as well as boat trips to see the neighbouring island of Kefalonia.
From the harbour in Sivota you can rent a boat without a license – a great way to explore the stunning scenery of the beautiful coastline. Further afield, be sure to take a trip to the neighbouring island of Meganisi, which you organise from the nearby town of Nidri. Lefkaditiki Gi Winery is just 10 minutes’ drive from Sivota, where you can sample the locally made wines. Or, head west to the nearby town of Vasiliki to try your hand at kitesurfing.
