Overlooking the glittering waters of the Ionian, the clue’s in the name at this stylish villa offering spectacular views across the water towards Paxos. Set in the hills above Sivota on the Greek mainland, the stunning panorama pervades inside and out thanks to the clever contemporary design and easy flow between living space and terrace; unbeatable for sun-worshipping by day and stargazing by night. The highest of three independent properties sharing the magnificent vista, Blue Ionian can be booked alone for a perfectly private getaway, or in combination with Blue Infinity or The Glass House, for an extended family or group of friends.
Days spent by the pool are relaxed and tranquil and there’s nothing to rival the magic of a Sivota sunset from the privacy of your terrace, but there’s plenty to do in the local area too. The superb location means it’s just five minutes by car to Mikri Ammos beach and only a little further to Megali Ammos beach, with its selection of excellent waterfront tavernas. Sivota itself, is a ten-minute drive, for boat hire, bars and a wider choice of places to eat and further afield Parga, Ioannina and the mountain villages of Zagoria offer a rich combination of culture, history and beauty, varied enough to enchant even the most seasoned explorer.

It was a case of third time lucky that we were able to have a wonderful week at Blue Ionian near Sivota with its sublime view of the Ionian Sea and towards Corfu. We experienced two false starts due to the Covid travel regulations, but the great staff at Simpson held our hand at every step of the way – keeping us informed and being as flexible as they could when regulations chopped and changed. Great staff were also on hand in Greece which started with meeting us at the airport. That continued with our local rep, Rania, who was really helpful with wonderful ideas about beaches and restaurants to visit. Vasso and Georgia in Isabella Tours were also helpful in providing advice and booking a boat for us to explore the local coastline and hidden beaches. Finally, the villa itself was superb – beautifully fitted out and everything you could need in the kitchen. The infinity pool was the pièce de résistance... A most wonderful week, in no small part to the Simpson team. With thanks.

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.

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.
