Situated on the edge of Sivota village, very close to the peaceful bay of Karvouno, Villa Loukas is one of a pair of innovative contemporary villas just 150m from a sandy beach. The house is light and bright, with fully retractable glass doors that open onto the terrace and a generously-sized private pool. All floors have a balcony or access to terraces, and with an additional living area and kitchenette on the lower floor, this villa is an excellent choice for a couple or a family with older children, who might also enjoy the freedom of being able to wander down to the beach bar and restaurant close by. Bella Vraka beach is also walkable, and has excellent water sports including canoeing and sailing.
This is the perfect location for a lazy holiday for those who don’t wish to drive: just a 10 minute stroll into Sivota, with its pretty harbour and numerous tavernas, cafés and bars whilst groceries can be delivered from the local supermarket. Some excellent excursions can be taken from a tour of the ancient world heritage sights in Albania to a private yacht for the day around Paxos and Anti Paxos.
Villa Loukas is entirely separate from neighbouring Villa Amalia, and screened by hedges for privacy, though both properties may also be combined to offer a spacious solution for two families or a group of friends.

We had a wonderful week split between Lygia and Sivota. Simpson handled it all brilliantly, and Rania, the local concierge was outstanding. Both villas, Simpson Secret – Epiros Coast and Villa Loukas, fully lived up to their billing. In Sivota I would particularly recommend the 'Blue Coast' restaurant, a tip from Rania, and in Lygia there are two excellent fish restaurants, Skaloka and Simos, and we found a good 'meat restaurant' (for a bit of variety) just down the road in the opposite direction at Acrogiali, associated with a decent shop and a quiet camp site. I should also mention how well the car hire was arranged, with someone holding a board to meet us at the airport, and similarly there to find us on our return. Good car.

Fantastic holiday in Villa Loukas. Thanks to Stuart, Jana and Chris for all their help, particularly on arrival and departure days. Spent most of the time around the lovely pool but the boat trip to Paxos and Anti Paxos is worthwhile – Pan & Theo restaurant in Gaios was very good. Sivota restaurants are all good – we particularly liked Blue Coast and Thassalia (dishes from the oven – huge portions though!). Weather great, sunsets beautiful, shortcut to beach – great idea!
Dennis & Jill – September 2019
We followed Jana and Stuart’s advice regarding restaurants and were not disappointed. Particularly enjoyed Kyma and Ostria on the harbour and had a very good meaty dish (lamb chops!) at the ‘taverna with no name’ opposite the meat market at the back of town. Stumbled on some decent rosé and white wine: Ionos. Took a half-day hire of a small motor boat to potter around the local islands – great fun and well worthwhile. Fork & Knife taverna in Perdika as a class act, a curious little place with mind blowing sunsets. A day out to Paxos (olive oil museum – quite interesting) was enough and we were glad to get back to Villa Loukas – oasis of peace! 20 years with Simply and now Simpson and every time they come up trumps.
Chip & Alli – September 2019
We had a fabulous week – lovely villa and superb location. Took out boats a couple of times – got a little lost the first time and felt like we were heading to Albania! Cannot recommend the bar down at Karvouna beach highly enough. Lovely staff, good food and great views. We’ll be back Sivota.
Jim & Jeanette – August 2019
Perfect location for a stress-free week. Pool is perfect. Spent most days by it or in it. Addicted to shrimp saganaki, fried aubergines/courgettes and tzatziki. Our second time at this villa. Both times have been just what we needed.
Sarah, Flora & Jack – July 2019
Villa Loukas – what a fab villa, location, location, location! We had a lovely week, peaceful, people watching, good food and chilled beers and wines! Simpson Travel make travelling a whole lot easier, so thanks to all.
Chris & Pam – September 2018
We had an excellent, peaceful and relaxing holiday at Villa Loukas. The villa is modern, spotlessly clean and equipped in such a way as to meet the needs of any holiday maker. All those who were associated with the functioning of the villa were pleasant, unobtrusive and efficient. Full marks for the welcome pack. Rania, our Simpson Travel representative, was helpful, pleasant, kind and efficient. Our visit to Meteora was outstanding. All told, an excellent holiday.
Conal & Lynda – September 2018
Villa Loukas is a great villa in a wonderful location, close to a very nice town. We had a fabulous holiday. Even the drive from Preveza airport was an easy on a lovely safe road. We stayed two weeks, but will need to return as there’s still more to explore.
Janet Cruse – July 2018
What a wonderful villa in a fabulous setting! We did not have to venture far – no need when the opportunity to really unwind was all here for us. A particularly hot week so activities included lazing around the pool with cooling dips in the water. We loved the length of the pool – quite long for a villa pool so we could all get a few lengths in with the hope of burning off a few calories from the enormous dinner portions served at our local restaurant.
Abigail, Rupert, Will & Alice – August 2017
This is our fourth year in Sivota at these villas as we love both so much. We came to have a relaxing break which we certainly did! No adventurous trips to report therefore but we had a great time. Klaudia couldn't have been more helpful – she is a great rep. We will come again.
Helen & Mark – July 2017
Stunning villa with the cleanest pool we have ever had. Try Plataria beach for a day. Restaurants by the harbour are all good. Simpson Travel – you have exceeded our expectations and we will be back. Klaudia, the rep was excellent too.
Phil & Val – July 2017
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.
