Arodo Seaside Villas
- English, Greek
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.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Our second time at the beautiful Villa Christina. It has everything you need and more. Our first stay travelling with family including a toddler - bed and bedding provided for her. The villa managers Marino and Beate are very welcoming and the waiting grocery pack is a great touch.
Perfect location, a varied choice of local amenities - small beaches, shops, bars and restaurants and all within easy walking distance. There is a well stocked supermarket 5 minutes drive on the road between Sivota and Vassiliki with a good range of baby products to pick up nappies etc.
Our fourth time in Sivota; it is so relaxing here we can’t wait to return!
Wonderful Villa Christina
We were a party of four ladies..
This was one of the best holidays we have had. We drove by car from the airport and found the directions given very easy to follow to Sivota. We arrived late so it was dark and found it a little tricky to locate the villa at first as we could not find the villa name .
We were not let down when we entered Christina we found a welcome pack of wine, orange juice, water, bread, butter, milk, tea, coffee, jam & fruit. Thank you Maria most welcome after our journey.
The villa was beautiful we did not want for anything.The location and VIEW was amazing both day and night watching the boats come & go. Plenty of tavernas to choose from we ate at a different one each night and was not disappointed with any of them.
We would definitely love to stay again and would recommend to friends.
Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
We enjoyed a peaceful stay at the villa which is well equipped and well serviced.
Incredible villa in stunning surroundings
This villa is the most beautiful place we have ever stayed. You want for nothing in the bill with a lovely welcome pack with wine, bread, cheese, eggs, biscuits, tea and coffee and other lovely items. The vista from the villa whether in the pool looking over the infinity pool or from the balcony in the master bedroom, is ever changing as you watch boats come and go from the small harbour of all sizes from superyachts to small motorboats. As we sat every evening in the harbour restaurants you can see the villa and you can see people looking in envy wondering who could be staying in such an amazing villa in such an outstanding location. The villa stayed really cool in the day and during the night, each of the bedrooms had air con which made the temperature perfect. The pool was cleaned half way through the week and all the bedding and towels changed and the villa cleaned. We were told what time and day and were able to decide if we wanted to stay in or pop out whilst the work was being done. If I had one tip, it would be to keep the insect mesh doors closed at all times as the Mosquitos enjoyed early evening to come out. Make sure you take some repellant. This was not a problem however in any way. The mesh doors worked a treat. The gardens had lemon trees full of ripe lemons, olive trees filled with olives and herbs that filled the air at dusk. If you get the chance to visit this villa-then do so. The island, Sivota, the people and the villa will not disappoint and this holiday will be very hard to beat in the future.

Villa Penelope and Villa Christina
Wow what amazing villas, my family and I have just returned from a two week stay , the first week we stayed in villa Penelope and the second at villa Christina. We booked direct with the owner Maria who was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with , she organised taxis to meet us at the airport on arrival and for our return, she also sent us lots of information about the Area. Once we arrived at villa Penelope there was a welcome pack, of food items all the essential things you need this was a lovely touch As it meant we did not have to rush straight out to the super market. This was left with a welcome note from Marino and Beatie who manage the villas on behalf of the owner .we met Marino a couple of times and he was a lovely guy and again very helpful. The villa was very clean . Linen change and cleaning was carried out once during our stay at each villa. The villas were furnished to a high spec. I could not think of one thing that it did not have that you would need. The villa was perfect with a lovely view and not overlooked by the villa next door. The location was amazing down steps that led to a small shingle beach just outside the property and a few minutes to all tavernas, Yanas family cafe and Stavros just off the pontoon were particularly good. Sivota is beautiful. There was also a small supermarket close by that had a good variety. Villa Penelope had a great size pool bigger than most Villas of the same size,both villas had good air conditioning which is a must . Then on to villa Christina. Wow what a fantastic villa very large, great views and lovely infinity pool . Both villas had plenty of storage and plenty hangers. Lovely high ceilings and again the decor was lovely, we loved the design of the villa with Everything as described, I can only say good things about the villas you will not be disappointed . We had a great time with wonderful memories .

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.
