About the Owner

Dianne and Helen both discovered the wonders of this unspoilt haven about 10 years ago and decided to invest in the foothills of Lefkada.

Initially we both came with our partners and then returned year after year.

Dianne worked in commerce in the city of London and lives in South Yorkshire, while Helen taught Design and lives in Hampshire.

By chance we both host the names of Greek Goddesses

and like them we strive to create a warm welcome to all visitors who come to the share our discovery.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Sunlight sparkles off the sapphire pool and sea"

Whether you are lazing by the pool or sitting transfixed by the stunning views, this villa offers luxury and style. Beautiful bedding and linens and a very well equipped kitchen to prepare fresh local food for alfresco dining on the patio.

The village of Sivota is very picturesque with a small supermarket, a few stores and many good places to eat. Our favourite restaurant was Yanni's friendly, family 'Taverna Spiridoula'.

the perfect place to spend on the Greek Isles with family or friends

A Holiday to Remember

This lovely villa is in a most beautiful setting overlooking the stunning Ionian Islands. Walking out of the door down the marble steps into the sapphire pool is a magical experience. The picturesque harbour of Sivota has a range of friendly tavernas providing a wide choice of excellent Greek cuisine of ample portions. Fresh bread is available daily at the bakery and supermarket.

This lovely villa is in a most beautiful setting overlooking the stunning Ionian Islands. Walking out of the door down the marble steps into the sapphire pool is a magical experience. The picturesque harbour of Sivota has a range of friendly tavernas providing a wide choice of excellent Greek cuisine of ample portions. Fresh bread is available daily at the bakery and supermarket. A car is essential for this get-away-from-it -all holiday and for seeing this gem of an island. A most memorable holiday.

Location

From the Owner

Almost a Shirley Valentine moment when we invested in a holiday home in the magical Ionian island. Our partners were both busy fixing davits and rigging on sailing boats but just occasionally we longed to explore the shore and when we did, we discovered a craggy and ancient terrain, speckled with green Olive trees reaching down to every cove on the shore. While the sheer stone cliffs towered above sailors beating their way round the inviting inlets. The scenery is stunning, the people are friendly and they mostly speak our language. The mythology is fascinating. The sunshine is welcoming and the sparkling sapphire seas are a joy to dip into. We hope to welcome you to our villa, a tranquil haven far from the madding crowd but close to characterful villages and the pretty harbour of Sivot
