The sheltered port of Sivota, on Lefkas’ south coast, is most probably the prettiest on the island.
A fjord-like entrance opens to a colourful waterfront of tavernas, bars and shops with a natural backdrop of hillsides covered with olive groves.
On one of these hillsides, just above the sea and overlooking the entrance to Sivota port, are two villas: Mandarini and Natalia. The villas are located in private grounds of 4 acres. Each villa has privacy.
Villa Mandarini looks out over the tops of silver olive trees to the sheltered bay and waterfront of Sivota, and across the open sea to the islands of Ithaca and Kefalonia.
The villa has one of the best seats in the theatre to watch the comings and goings of yachts and local fishing boats. By night the theatre changes to twinkling taverna lights.
A pathway of 100 metres leads down from the villa, through olive groves to bathing rocks. A coastal path leads from here to Sivota port - a walk of 15 minutes.
The private grounds include a citrus orchard and a vegetable garden, where villa guests can help themselves.
Private swimming pool 9 x 4 metres & depth 1.80 metres
Maid service & linen change once per week (extra service on request)
Location: car hire recommended. Villa Mandarini is reached by a track of 2 kilometres from Sivota. Sivota has a good selection of tavernas (fresh fish always on the menu), bars, a couple of minimarkets and bakeries. There is a village beach and hiring a boat locally will give easy access to other beaches on the east and south coasts.
