Sivota has been loved by Simpson travellers since we first introduced it to our collection. Our guests have told us how much they enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the village, the unspoilt coastline and the easy access to the mountainous interior, which together make it one of our most versatile destinations.
Bella Vraka Villa enjoys a spectacular vantage point above the sparkling Ionian Sea. It’s one of a select number of villas and apartments across a headland located high above the water making sweeping panoramic vistas a welcome feature of your stay. In fact, there’s nothing but a few trees and rocks to separate your pool and terrace from that glorious expanse of blue.
Only a quick five-minute walk down the hill away from your villa is Bella Vraka Beach, in case an early morning swim takes your fancy or a spot of sailing or canoeing in the high season. Or you can simply laze by your own private pool and watch others enjoying the classic island pleasure of messing about in boats.
This recently-built villa has a practical and flexible layout designed with two separate suites with their own entrances making it idea for families and couples travelling with friends. The laid-back bars and waterfront restaurants of Sivota harbour are within walking distance, so there’s no need for a designated driver (or for anyone to cook) and, if you are travelling with children and prefer to eat in, the local supermarket offers a handy delivery service. It’s the perfect excuse, should you need one, to spend relaxing evenings on the dining terrace, a magical place to sit and watch the sun set and the stars come out.

Mrs Moffat – October 2019
Perfect spot for access to the harbour and to local sea swims. The views were outstanding and Bella Vraka is a wonderful spot to relax and chill.
Mrs Tetley – August 2019
This was probably the best holiday we have taken with Simpson and we have been on quite a few. The location was breathtaking, the apartment very comfortable and we loved Sivota. We came home very relaxed and we are already thinking of a return visit next year!
Ginny Bates – July 2019
Enjoyed a fabulous week at Bella Vraka Villa. The view from the villa is beautiful and we enjoyed watching the boats coming and going. Short walk downhill to the lovely harbour (taxi back!). Enjoyed meals out every night at the good selection of tavernas along the harbour. Lovely to meet the reps, Jana and Stuart, who were very knowledgeable and helpful with any questions we had about the villa or area and recommended places to visit. All in all a wonderful holiday and hope to visit again one day.
Diane & Steve – May 2019
Lovely stay at Bella Vraka. We enjoyed trips to the local Bella Vraka beach and snorkelling in the clear waters. Sivota is an easy if steep walk downhill and there is a good choice of well-priced restaurants, many of which have prime harbour views. Thank you to the great local reps.
Ms Brown – May 2019
The organisation by Simpson Travel was excellent from beginning to end. Very impressive. Bella Vraka Villa is in a gorgeous location, with stunning views. It is a short walk from Sivota village and port, which is a little gem. It joins our top favourite destinations of all time. A perfect holiday.
Mr D Brown – September 2018
We had a very relaxing two weeks at Bella Vraka Villa, enjoying the best villa views ever! The sunshine was almost unbroken, but some evening clouds gave us wonderful sunset photos. We visited several of the lovely beaches both north and south of Sivota and enjoyed them all. Mega Drafi was one of the favourites, but we also loved Mega Ammos where the restaurant choices are much better. Zeri beach, which one can walk to from the headland beyond the harbour, was a very peaceful place – it’s partly shaded by trees. We took the boat Delfini II from the harbour to Paxos and Anti Paxos. The boat stopped in Lakka for coffee before we saw the spectacular caves on the west coast of Paxos, and then swimming off the boat near Anti Paxos. We did drive to Perdika twice in the evenings to eat. Rania, the Simpson Travel representative, was incredibly helpful with advice.
Ann & David – September 2018
We had a fabulous holiday in fabulous Villa Selina and Bella Vraka Villa – both in great locations. Thank you Simpson Travel from the whole party of six! We all had a great time.
Grant Cunliffe – July 2018
Despite the unsettled weather early in the week, it ended up glorious. The views from Bella Vraka Villa are truly amazing, better than we imagined. We had a really lovely week.
Karen & Mike Dowe – June 2018
Villa Bella Vraka is fantastic. Stunning views and in an amazing location. Rania, the Simpson Travel representative is superb – she knows everyone. We enjoyed eating in a variety of restaurants by the harbour, hired a boat and visited the Ionian beach which is very good.
Simon, Mandy, Kelly & Emma – June 2018
Bella Vraka Villa is brilliant accommodation with spectacular views. We had a great week and was well looked after by Rania, the Simpson Travel representative.
Chris & Julie Cartlidge – June 2018
From start to finish Simpson provided a high quality VIP experience. Great advice as we booked the holiday, excellent pre-departure service, the very smoothest car hire arrangements we have ever had (meaning no standing around for an hour waiting for the family), accomodation was excellent (and as described), in resort rep (Klaudia at Syvota) was first class, villa and pool cleaners were excellent. All in all a 5 star experience and we would. Highly recommend Simpson to anyone.
Mr Mee – August 2017
This villa is set in a location with a stunning view. It is very comfortable and provides plenty of space for the residents inside and out. Simpsons rep is outstanding and allowed us to make the most of our stay with helpful suggestions of things to do and places to visit, while the cleaning staff were friendly and efficient. Sivota is only ten minutes walk away, as long as you can manage quite steep hills, and provides a good choice places to eat, mostly very good. We stayed in mid May and had an enjoyable and relaxing holiday. Highly recommended!
Mr Hare – July 2017
After full booking and payment Simpson Travel dealt marvellously well and very fairly in terms of cost when one of our party had to cancel at short notice meaning one less flight and one less car and did even better to subsequently reinstate the car and flight for our party member the afternoon before we were due to travel. Congrats to Simpson....what stars!
Mr Kelly – July 2016
Our third holiday in Sivota with Simpson Travel and as usual the service is outstanding. This year the location of the villa was great has the most amazing view and easy to walk into Sivota. Klaudia and Rado are the most wonderful hosts and cannot do enough for you we cannot wait to return
Mrs Hancox – July 2016
Thanks to the amazing staff at Simpson, all aspects of our first Greek Odyssey were stress free and top class. From the initial call to arriving home all were professional, experienced, friendly,organised and obviously enjoying their work. Simpson were recommended by a friend who advised us that the website portrayed the properties exactly as they are and she was spot on. The only surprise for us was that the whole experience was even better than we expected! Our stay for a week at the stunning Bella Vraka Villa in Sivota was all we'd been anticipating and made even more special by the extra care and interest given by Klaudia. She was a font of great local knowledge and went out of her way to make our holiday special.. She and Rado make a wonderful, professional, friendly team. Thanks Simpson for introducing us to Greece. Looking forward to our next adventure already.
Mrs Henricksen – May 2016
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.
* * For further clarification on Facilities and Amenities, please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.
Unspoilt Sivota sits prettily in its own natural harbour just across the water from Corfu. A short walk away you’ll find two pristine sand-and-pebble beaches, with more to explore on the uninhabited islands offshore and along the glorious Epiros Coast. Further afield, and perfect for a short countryside break or day trip, is Zagoria, home to timeless slate-built villages, arched stone bridges and the fabled monasteries of Meteora.
