Family of four
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.
