Sitting proudly upon a quiet, gently graduated hillside, above the charming village of Sivota, overlooking sleepy vistas of yachts large and small cruising in the cobalt coloured bay below, Menta welcomes guests with an abundance of laid back Lefkan charm. This simply styled property is wonderfully located, just 1km from the shops, family-run tavernas and restaurants of Sivota harbour, whilst simultaneously enjoying breath-taking views across the Ionian Sea to the nearby islands of Ithaca and Kefalonia.
To the front of villas, the verdant hillsides and glistening waters below create a stunning backdrop to the outdoor terrace and private infinity pool, an invitation to spend many a carefree hour soaking up the glorious Greek sunshine, swimming, cooking on the barbecue and delighting in the sunset over the hills to the west. Stone walls and an abundance of shrubs, flowers and greenery help villas seamlessly blend with the surrounding hillsides, carpeted with ancient olive trees in a classic Mediterranean tableau.
Well proportioned, both upstairs and down, high ceilings enhance the lightness and airiness of the principal rooms. Welcoming in the sunshine and refreshing light summer breeze, wide doors in the two large double bedrooms provide direct access onto the ground floor terrace, whilst on the upper level, a large balcony off the twin bedroom and living room is yet another prime spot for admiring that wonderful vista across the bay. This balcony also has good space for all guests to enjoy a leisurely breakfast in the morning sunshine, or maybe a relaxing dinner al-fresco… twinkling stars above, twinkling harbour lights below!
Pretty Sivota has a bakery and a good minimarket for everyday essentials with larger shops (plus an attractive beach) at Nydri, about a 20 minute drive or in the island capital Lefkada Town (45 minutes) where you will find much local color to enjoy amongs the labyrinthine streets.
Various attractive beaches lie within easy distance; Afteli is just 6.5km while Mikros Gialos and Disimi are each within a 20 minute drive and have a further smattering of restaurants, tavernas and shops to explore. Additionally, the wilder and more rugged west coast is home to several beaches considered some of the most beautiful in all of Greece. Famous for its unspoiled landscape and clear blue waters gorgeous Porto Katsiki (a hugely scenic boat trip from Nydri) located on the south west tip of Lefkada is widely considered to be amongst the top 10 beaches in Europe.
Super schöne, sehr funktional ausgestattete Villa mit einem atemberaubenden Blick über die Sivota Bay. 20 Minuten zu Fuss gelangt man direkt zum kleinen idyllischen Hafen mit Restaurants, Cafes, Bäckerei und Supermärkten.
Beautiful villas up on the hill with awesome view. Hosts super friendly and easy to communicate with, surely exceeded our expectations. Picturesque little village with a few options to eat and drink. Will definitely come back next year!
Thank you so much for all your kindness to us while we have been here. We have enjoyed it. Very restful and tranquil, a lovely little oasis of calm. We will have very happy memories to take back with us.
“Perfect location, perfect villa” We had a great time, with friends and we all want to come back!
I felt finally relaxed ( since Covid) this June and filed with hope and optimism at a calm place with beautiful view, flowers, smell of lavender and one of the nicest port nearby. Hope to come back 🙏❤️ Thank you.
You have made our holiday feel like a dream. From our easy and safe arrival to everyday making us feel at home. Our stay was wonderful from start to finish. The villa is beautiful and location fantastic. The private pool was loved from the whole family.
A truly beautiful villa with everything and more that you could need! The pool area is stunning and comfortable with a enough sun and shade to keep you happy during your stay. A perfect location for a relaxing holiday with family and friends!
14 super nights in Villa Diosmos in Sivota. Panos and Timos were great hosts. We recommended Diosmos to everyone. We hope to have the opportunity to get back next summer.
It was an amazing week in Villa Diosmos. The view is fantastic and the villa is super clean. We enjoyed the pool. The housekeeper is very helpful. Looking forward for our next visit.
