This is where crystal clear blue waters meet fine white sands, forming the perfect sunbathing grounds.

Holiday homes in Syvota are usually fully booked during this time of year as holidaymakers take advantage of the tranquillity of this village and its proximity to Lefkada’s prettiest beaches.

These holiday villas in Syvota are notable for the stunning views they command over the vastness of the sea. They are spacious and boast an assortment of excellent facilities designed to keep visitors at ease and entertained.
-Beaches: Visitors to this part of Greece will have soft white sands of beaches such as the one in Nikiana to spread loungers and sunbeds on and enjoy the abundant sunshine. Most holidaymakers will fall in love with the stretches of sand and majestic white cliffs that make up the Egrenmi Beach. Though sun-worshippers will have to descend over 300 steps to access this picturesque slice of coastline, it is well worth the effort as the beach is hardly ever crowded.
-Water sports: Besides promenading the sandy Lefkada shoreline, visitors can engage themselves in a number of exciting activities. The more adventurous can rent windsurfing gear and take to the waves as conditions are ideal for this sport. There is a windsurfing centre in Vasiliki. And when they’re exhausted from the day’s activities holidaymakers can seek refreshment in the form of delicious iced coffee at the beach bars.
-Sfakiotes villages: For those after the traditional Greek cultural experience, a stroll through the villages of Sfakiotes is recommended. Here they will see how ancient structures and practices have been preserved over time as they view old wells, windmills and olive groves. They will also encounter friendly locals going about their daily activities at a leisurely pace.
-Food and drink: Visitors staying in Syvota holiday homes will want to visit the Lygia locale to have a bite. There are few places more suited to romantic dinners than Seven Islands restaurant, one of Lygia’s most sought after eateries. Among the favourites with diners there is the fish which is always fresh and simply melts in one’s mouth. And the prices won’t make you swoon. For a meal by the quiet Ionian waters visitors should stop by at the appropriately named Sea Side Restaurant.
Summer visitors to Greece’s Ionian Sea coast can expect nothing short of cloudless blue skies during their holidays. By May the warm season has already began in Lefkada and temperatures average at 23°C. The temperatures continue to rise into the summer months proper where they peak at around 30°C. This period is hot and dry and practically no rainfall is recorded until autumn. The weather is pleasant around this time of year as temperatures range from 23 to 26°C and there is some rainfall. Those who would not wish to contend with 30 plus temperatures or crowds of sun-worshippers should therefore think about booking holiday homes in Syvota a few weeks before winter begins.

It receives seasonal flights and seasonal charters from a number of European cities including Manchester, London, Munich and Amsterdam.
