Everything was perfect. Daphne and her mother were extremely welcoming and helpful. They welcomed us with a tour and a gift basket 🙂 The house was a dream. Very tasteful in its decor. paradise on earth. The view of the Harbor below and the landscape are amazing! The house is brand new. Everything was high class and perfect. I would definitely stay there again.
This property was built with love and particular attention to details. Every part of the house has been well thought of and the villa is fully equipped with anything one can need. The level of comfort we have experienced goes far beyond one can expect. The splendid view during day or night over the whole village and the cove gives liberating feeling of being relaxed and free from everyday life. We recommend this villa for anyone eager to relax and have re-energizing vacation in one of the most beautiful parts of the wonderful Greece.
Beautiful, clean, modern villa in stunning location in foothills above Sivota, owned and managed by lovely attentive Greek family.
Άριστη επιλογή για διακοπές… Ευγενέστατοι οικοδεσπότες, δημιούργησαν με μεράκι ένα κατάλυμα που θυμίζει παλατάκι, σε μια τοποθεσία όπου μικροί και μεγάλοι μαγεύονται και νιώθουν ότι ζούνε στον παράδεισο…
Heaven on earth. Everything was amazing – the house, the view, the owner! Looking forward to coming back.
My wife and I came to Villa Athena for the first half of our honeymoon. Daphne and her family were very welcoming to us from the moment we arrived. The villa is exceptionally clean and luxurious. There is plenty of private space (and another villa next door), even for larger families. For the just the two of us, it was perfect. The villa is situated in the hills overlooking the bay and town of Sivota. Sivota was our favorite town on the island – sunny, bright during the day and colorful, romantic at night. There is great access to the other main areas of the island, so the villa and town are situated in good proximity to all the attractions. Daphne and her family are extremely attentive to your needs and provided friendly service and lots of great advice about the island of Lefkada and Greek culture. My wife and I agreed that this was a five star experience that rivaled other luxurious hotels I have seen in my travels. We even decided that when our own kids are old enough to appreciate travel, we would bring them back here some day.
Heerlijk vakantiehuis – prachtig uitzicht, zeer goed onderhouden. Prachtig verzorgd huis met een schitterend uitzicht op de baai/haven van Sivota. Heerlijk huis om tot rust te komen!!
During long, cold, dark winter days, when I close my eyes for a moment, I can recall a sunny, warm, cozy place. I can even feel the pleasant sea breeze, the smell of all these aromatic herbs and even the taste of the fabulous Lefkas wine and I can almost hear the cicadas. This brings me the consolation… Let it be the best recommendation for this place.
I’ve been to many villas like this during my holidays, and I travel a lot because of my work, but this is the only place that comes to my mind when I want to recall the summer time. It’s not only a luxury house, but a place where you can feel the positive energy of the people. The owners are very friendly and they are natives of Sivota. Their family lives in this village and the restaurants in the bay are run by them. Because everyone greets you and they know who you are, you can feel for a moment as a part of their community, not only a tourist.
It is a very comfortable, clean, modern villa for those who do not like to be one of the thousands of nameless tourists in a huge hotel, and want to feel the real atmosphere of the place they visit. It was my second visit in villa Athena, and will visit it again for sure.
My wife and I stayed for a week with 4 teenagers. The villa is beautifully presented, and the views across the bay are fantastic. Daphne and the family were very welcoming and made sure we felt at home.
The villa’s location is also very good. It is high enough for the views and peace, yet close enough for a short walk to the village – we ate at the restraurants most nights. I didn’t see a better villa in the resort combining quality and location.
We had a great week, and hope to return soon.
We had the most wonderful week in Sivota staying at this gorgeous villa. We were made so welcome, the place was spotless and Maria and Daphne are wonderful women. The pool area is divine – cannot wait to return.
To our lovely hosts,
Thank you so much for the beautiful villa. We especially appreciated being able to put the kids on the bottom floor with their own access to the swimmig pool!
We hope to visit again.
Dear Dafne and family,
The beautiful house, the extraordinary view, the lovely balconies, the swimming pool and Sivota – we will miss it all!
We really enjoyed our stay here!
Theank you very much for your hospitality!
Thank you for an amazing vacation! You are amazing hosts! Multumim mult & sperăm şa revenim curănd!!!
A really spacious & well equipped villa,possibly the best I have stayed in. The view over Sivota is stunning, especially when all lit up at night. A wander down the steps through the olive groves takes you straight to the restaurants along the waters edge. Our hosts were extremely welcoming & nothing was too much trouble. I did not want to go home, and hope to make a return visit in the future.
We had eight super days at this awesome villa. We loved everything about it, the views, the pool, the location, the comfort and overall beauty of the villa. The attention to detail is amazing. We have stayed in many different villas in Greece and the Ionian islands for 15 years now, but the Ktima Aniforeli – Daphne House – is by far the best experience we have ever had. A true paradise! Both the house and the host(s) exceeded all our expectations. Daphne and Maria are extraordinary, lovely, helpful and welcoming. We will definitely return some day in the future, and we will recommend this place to everyone!
We are just travelling back from 10 days at the villa, it’s so beautiful we didn’t want to leave! This is our 3rd time staying in Sivota but this villa is easily the best we have ever stayed in. The attention to detail is outstanding. We could quite happily move in and never leave!
Daphne and Maria were also amazing – before we booked we asked lots of questions that they were only too happy to answer. Whilst there they also looked after us so well, we can’t wait to book for next year!
Die Besitzer sind extrem freundlich und aufmerksam. In dieser Art hatten wir das noch nie. Alles war wirklich perfekt. Die Inneneinrichtung ist liebevollst ausgewählt – man fühlt sich von der ersten Sekunden an wie zuhause. Auf einem der wunderschönen Balkons zu sitzen und den Segelbooten zuzuschauen, wie sie die Bucht verlassen oder ankommen – Erholung pur!!!! Man blickt vom Pool auf den Hafen – Genuss pur!!! Das kleine Örtchen Sivota ist reizend und alle Tavernen sehr zu empfehlen. Das Meer auf Lefkas ist wunderschön. Urlaub wie er schöner nicht sein kann :-)))
We had an amazing stay at villa Athena. Anything needed was already there. The pool with its view was stunning.
Everything was very clean, the linens and the towels too. It was few steps to the village of Sivota.
The owners of the villa, Daphne and her family, were very very welcoming. They made sure that everything was ok and took care of anything with simplicity.
Since we were six, the 3 bedrooms with each a private bathroom were the right fit for us.
During the night the view was stunning with the lights of the pool and also of the village, so staying in the veranda was relaxing.
If you want a villa to be apart from everything and just with the people you choose with a modern yet cozy villa, it is worth your time and money.
This villa is without doubt the most beatfully decorated my family and I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. It is immaculate in every respect, the view is breathtaking and perfect for settling into Sivota life as you are only 100 steps from the harbour (it is a workout to get back up but this was fine for us and the alternative is a very short car journey). This was perfect for our teenagers as well as for us as we could wander down from the gorgeous privacy of the villa to the shops and restaurants in minutes and yet, when we were “home”, we felt a world away from any hustle and bustle. Daphne and Maria are warm and generous hosts; the welcome hamper is bountiful and saves that first run to the supermarket as you will have all the essentials and this is topped up min way through the week. I cannot recommend Villa Athena enough and look forward to visiting again. Thank you so very much.
Ktima Aniforeli is simply superb in every respect. From the infinity pool with its lovely view out over Sivota, its dining table on the balcony and the spacious kitchen and living area, to the beautifully finished bedrooms with their fine linen, everything exceeded our expectations. All our needs were catered for, including a washing machine and dishwasher. There is also satellite television, although we never bothered with it! We wanted for nothing throughout our week and will be back there again next year, but probably for twice as long! Daphne and Maria were very welcoming and helpful, and the direct access down to the village was a great bonus. Sivota has much to commend it, with great bars, restaurants and supermarkets, meaning that most things can be sourced within the village, although we got excellent fresh fish direct from the fishermen in Vassiliki. Thank you very much Daphne.
