This newly completed villa is aptly named. Thanks to its mighty wingspan, the albatross can glide effortlessly above the sea for hours, sailing peacefully on the breeze – and here, with a bird’s eye view of Sivota’s pretty harbour, lush green hills and magnificent sunsets, you can enjoy the same perfect serenity from a truly spectacular vantage point.

The hillside was once covered in olive groves and vineyards, but they had long been overgrown when the owners of the land, Yiannis and Athanasia, decided to realise their vision for a contemporary family home. Drawing on local architecture, natural materials and their own personal style, the result is a comfortable summer retreat with light, bright interiors and vibrant works of art painted by Yiannis himself.

Spacious balconies, an infinity pool and an outdoor dining area lend themselves perfectly to relaxed summer living: leisurely mornings spent watching the boats in miniature and evening drinks as Sivota Town comes to life below, with a sparkle of lights and an inviting enthusiasm for good food and generous, family-friendly hospitality.

Sivota's harbour, with its shops and tavernas, is just a ten-minute drive away and there are a number of sandy beaches easily accessible from there. Or hire a boat and spread your wings a little further with adventures along the coast or a day on the delightful island of Meganissi nearby.

Customer feedback

We have just spent some wonderful days at Albatross. We survived the road to get here but once you have conquered it once you get the hang of it. We enjoyed some lovely food in Sivota. The villa was heaven to come back to – cool and comfortable, lovely pool with the view to die for.
Caroline & Richard Day – August 2019

 

Fabulous week in this beautiful villa. The drive up is well worth it – we all enjoyed the spectacular view and lovely pool. All in all another fantastic Simpson holiday, organisation, rep, accommodation – all first class.
Mrs Bingham – June 2019

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.
