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.

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!
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.
We visited Lefkada in winter, so we stayed a lot in the villa. We enjoyed every minute in this place, the living room and the fireplace. The villa is wonderful and very comfortable even for 6 persons as we were. Unfortunatelly in winter time most shops and restaurants at the village are closed but the host informed as on time so we did all the shopping and cooked at home, mostly at night, since in the morning we were making small excursions around the island. There are so many beautifull places to see and especially the small villages on the mountains. We do feel like visiting again in summer, I hope we will make it.
The Villa is in a great location with breathtaking view. Very clean, with all the amenities and comforts. Penelopy is best host, very kind and helpful. We still remember those quiet nights by the pool, relaxing and enjoying our holidays. During the day although we could move around the island by car we prefered to spend most of our time at the villa. Besides the pool, the sea is so close that we didn't feel the need to leave the place apart from few nights that we went to the village for dinner and some shopping.
