We rented Villa Sivota as a four bed (three ensuite arrangement) with pool and basement cinema room.
Villa Sivota is ideally placed it is literally within the 150m of the harbour, this being crescent shaped (c800m) and full of bars/restaurants.
Being a very calm and protected harbour Sivota is used as a base for many yachts, as well as several local fishing operations, so there is always activity on the harbour side and the local fishermen keep the restaurants very well stocked with excellent reasonably priced fresh fish. Sivota isn’t exactly up market or a great gastronomic delight but will appeal to those looking for a more casual experience.
The villa is fully stocked with crockery etc has four bedrooms (three ensuite and is fitted out in a contemporary style – almost exclusively from Ikea! Lots of nice outdoor seating in sun and shade. One minor point is the lack of blinds etc at most of the bedroom windows, meaning you awake at sunrise. The cinema room is very good and we enjoyed that to the extent of deciding to incorporate one in our own home!
The local infrastructure is not too robust and during our stay we lost both water and power (during a storm to be fair) and had relatively poor internet signal throughout our stay, this being fine for emails and general internet use but not good enough for the gamers in our party. The “no toilet paper down the toilet – no matter what used for” is a little off putting! I would stress these that all these infrastructure matters are general locality rather than villa specific issues.
All of the people we dealt with in respect of the villa could not have been more helpful. Anna (manager), Jerome (the operations guy) and Debbie (the house maid) all did everything they could to be helpful always responding quickly and positively to all our queries, they certainly made the booking process and stay stress free.
We would definitely like to return to Villa Sivota and have no hesitation in recommending this villa.
