    The owners are very kind peoples and the best hosts I have ever met. We love everything in this place! All my family had the most amazing vacation and we will return next summer for sure in our “home” in Lefkada. I called it home because we felt like we were home. Penelope thanks for everything…see you soon!

    Perfect Holiday

    Left on Apr 17, 2017 for a stay in Apr 2017
    The Agapi villa was absolutely fantastic. Penelope was really helpful in accommodating us as we needed special sleeping arrangements. The Villa is down towards the end of an unmade track, which gives the feeling of being in the wild and beautiful countryside. Inside it is tastefully decorated with neutral colours and natural fabric. We were welcomed with a generous supply of local food and supplies after our journey. The views from the villa are really fantastic, out across the bay and the islands. The villa gets sun in the morning and the evening sun too, better situated than the houses on the opposite hillside. Outside the pool is lovely and there are lots of different terraced areas to sit and relax. We went out of ‘season’ as we wanted a quiet holiday, but Sivota village had a couple of tavernas open, with great, simple, authentic Greek dishes at affordable prices. Yianna at the ‘Family Cafe’ is lovely and welcoming. In full season obviously it will be a busier village as there are about 10 or more tavernas to choose from. A few visiting yachts and sailors were around, and it is a very nice village. A short drive for a supermarket, and supplies. A great place to hide away and relax, or great to explore the rest of the island. We rented mopeds from ‘Santas’ who was very friendly and helpful, delivered to the village for us ! So our children were really happy exploring the island. Don’t tell too many people how lovely this place is, it is really beautiful, and Penelope a lovely host.

    Gorgeous views, perfect holiday feeling – hope to go again soon

    We travel to Greece since 1999 and I can say that staying in Amapola Villas was an excellent experience. We were impressed by the sea-view we had from the pool, the cleanness of the villa and by our host, Penelope. We stayed for one week last year in June. We decided to come again, hopefully this year :). Sivota is a nice place to stay, explore the island of Lefkada and enjoy dinners over a Greek dinner by the sea. I would say that is definitely a must have experience. Enjoy!

    Lefkada luxury

    Left on Dec 19, 2016 for a stay in Aug 2016
    This was such an amazing place to stay and we wished we stayed here longer. It was a shame we had to leave. Nonetheless the stylish interior design coupled with mods and cons of a newly constructed villa makes it a pleasure to sit back, relax and enjoy the views. Cannot wait to come back again one day.

    Una casa bellissima in una posizione con un panorama spettacolare
    5 of 5
    La nostra esperienza è stata molto positiva: la casa è proprio come visibile in foto, inoltre è ben tenuta ordinata pulita e anche arredata nei dettagli con molto gusto e senza trascurare la funzionalità.

    In giardino, la piscina e il pergolato sempre ombreggiato sono veramente belli e utilissimi per godersi quelle ore di relax al mattino o alla sera tra il ritorno dal mare e l’ora di cena.

    C’è anche l’orto, se vi piace il cibo a Km0, in stagione potete trovare pomodori zucchine, meloni e spezie di tutti i tipi: veramente molto buoni.

    Infine la proprietaria con noi è stata gentilissima: all’arrivo ci ha fatto trovare la spesa già fatta con marmellata e miele fatti in casa e alla partenza ci ha omaggiato di alcuni barattoli di spezie.

    In queste righe vorrei dedicarne una per salutarla e ringraziarla per l’ospitalità e la gentilezza che ci ha dimostrato.

    Sivota è a 2-3 km di distanza ed è un paesino turistico molto carino con tantissimi ristoranti e i servizi basilari: supermercato qualche negozietto. Noi abbiamo mangiato un paio di volte in un due ristoranti e, ordinando del pescato del giorno, ci siamo sempre trovati bene, spendendo poco rispetto all’Italia.

    Per qualcuno potrebbe essere un piccolo disagio la strada di accesso un po’ stretta e sterrata, ma vi abituerete, non è così difficile e poi considerate che tutte le ville sulle isole della Grecia sono più o meno in questa situazione.

    Se cercate un soggiorno a Sivota (Lefkada) consiglio vivamente a tutti questa fantastica dimora.

    Dear Penelopy, thank you so much for our wonderful vacation. We had the best time. Everything is like on your beautiful pictures! We felt at home there at once and never wanted to leave. Great villa, wonderful surroundings! We enjoyed the vegetables and fruits from your garden. Pool and villa are very well maintained. Everybody who reads this: imagine your dream vacation spot (perfect sea view, wonderful villa) and then double it. This is Phos. We enjoyed relaxing by the pool watching the yachts passing by. Everything is so peaceful – it’s the best for everyone who wants to find peace of mind and happiness.

    Δύο ονειρεμένα, πέτρινα σπίτια χτισμένα σε ένα από τα ομορφότερα σημεία του νησιού. Ένα πανέμορφο σκηνικό βγαλμένο από παραμύθι που δημιούργησε η Πηνελόπη (οικοδέσποινα στις βίλες) που με τον μοναδικό της τρόπο σε κάνει να θέλεις να επιστρέφεις ξανά και ξανά !!!

    Absolute Perfection

    Left on Aug 3, 2017 for a stay in Jul 2017
    How can you describe perfection.? Well it comes down to a few words..Location, Scenery, Architecture, attention to detail and last but not least, our host, Penelopy. The en suite bathrooms was much appreciated while the comfort of the furniture and beds was more than expected. Also, the equipment was so organised that there was nothing missing, we really felt like home! My family and I had the best of time and we are really looking forward to go back. We definetely reccoment this place!

    A little piece of heaven in Lefkada

    Left on Sep 11, 2017 for a stay in Aug 2017
    My wife, four children and I spent two amazing weeks at the apartment in August this year. From the moment we arrived and met Penelope, who showed us around, we knew that we had made the right choice. Waking up the next day and drawing back the curtains to see the beautiful Ionian view was the perfect way to begin our fantastic break. The apartment is perfectly positioned for amazing views, and to watch the yachts travel in and out of Sivota Harbour with a beer in one hand and a great book in the other. Our children had a blast in the pool and always found something to do in the local area including a brilliant snorkeling spot not to far away. Sivota is just big enough to provide some perfect little tavernas, while not being overly touristy (long may this continue). The locals are very friendly, and the food and drink tasted great and didn’t break the bank. Thank you Penelope for always being available when we needed you, and for building such a beautiful house. We all miss you, the house and more (for me anyway) the amazing view. Farrar Family (Cheshire, UK)

    Amazing Family Villa

    Left on Sep 11, 2017 for a stay in Aug 2017
    We had a wonderful family holiday staying in Syvota. The vila was perfect for our family of 6 with children ranging from 5-13. We arrived to have a fridge stocked with the lovely vegetables grown in the garden. The kids had a great time exploring and walking to the beach just below the house. The view is spectacular. The house is impeccably clean and stocked with everything you may need. Penelope the owner could not have been more welcoming and helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending Amapola villas and Syvota. We can’t wait to visit again next summer.

    Le parole sono poche per descrivere le sensazioni che ho avuto in questa casa! Mi sono innamorata di Lefkada! Vivevo una favola! La totale ricarica ed il totale relax! La perfetta posizione, dove semprava che eravamo dentro un quadro di grande Arte. E la Padrona amichevole e molto d’aiuto, ci ha fatto sentire subito a casa mentre ci ha dato consigli che hanno attribuito alla nostra meravigliosa ed indimenticabile vacanza a Lefkada! Don’t miss it!!!!!

    Einfach nur herrlich

    Left on Aug 19, 2017 for a stay in Jun 2017
    Die Lage der Villa ist wirklich super, die Aussicht auf einer Seite Richtung Hafen von Sivota, auf der anderen Richtung offenem Meer. Die Besitzerin und ihr Team sind sehr sehr zuvorkommend und immer disponibel. Können die Villa nur empfehlen. Etwas umständlich die Zufahrt zum Haus, aber machbar

    Stunning villa with stunning views

    Left on Sep 11, 2017 for a stay in Aug 2017
    The views from this villa are stunning and you will never tire of seeing them. Watching the yachts coming and going is beautiful and the lights of Sivota in the evenings twinkling against the vivid, black, mountainous back drop is perfect. The villa is exceptionally well equipped and spacious for a family of four or two couples sharing. The design, both interior and exterior, is both family friendly and sophisticated. Picking fresh vegetables from the garden for lunch added an extra special touch. Sivota has a number of excellent tavernas and a fantastic bakery for fresh bread, pancakes and waffles. The track leading to the villa is a bit rough in places but taken steady in a non 4×4 vehicle is achievable. It is quite a walk to the town, a torch would definitely be needed for the return at night. Penelope is a delightful host, on hand should you need help or advice but not intrusive if you want to do your own thing. A lovely parting gift from her and her gardens added a special touch to the holiday. Would definitely return!

    Quest’anno ho trascorso con mio fratello e le nostre fidanzate una settimana a metà settembre nella splendida casa di Penelopy.
    Sono rimasto particolarmente colpito dalla bellezza ed dalla cura della casa (si vede la mano di Penelopy in tutti i più piccoli particolari), dalla cortesia della proprietaria, dal panorama mozzafiato e dalla rilassatezza del luogo.
    Ma quello che mi è rimasto più impresso è stata la sensazione di pace che la casa mi ha regalato e che mi ha pervaso per l’intera vacanza e che ora tornato a casa rimpiango.
    Grazie Penelopy e a presto
