A masterclass in elegant, contemporary design, The Glass House is also something of a rarity in lovely Sivota, a destination for sun-lovers, history buffs and walkers, where top-notch two-bedroom villas are in short supply. However, it’s more than style and sophistication that makes this villa so utterly unmissable: it also commands one of the finest views in the whole of our Greece collection.
The sight of that endless blue will have even the most travel-weary reaching for their camera and the double-height rooms and floor-to-ceiling glass take full advantage of this sweeping panorama, as glorious from your bed as it is from the magnificent dining terrace or private infinity pool.
And then there’s the location, five minutes by car to Mikri Ammos beach and only a little further to Megali Ammos beach, with a selection of excellent waterfront tavernas. Sivota itself, for boat hire, bars and a wider choice of places to eat, is a ten-minute drive. Or, you might prefer to eat in and enjoy the magic of a Sivota sunset from the privacy of your terrace.

Excellent holiday in Sivota for my wife’s birthday. Flight times, car hire, ease of driving to accommodation were all good. Quality of accommodation outstanding, very clean and everything you need once you arrive (milk, wine, beer, water, tea, coffee, etc.). Will certainly use Simpson Travel again.
Mr Perry October 2019
We enjoyed our week long stay. Our recommendations are Kamini beach, Parga, Stravolimenas beach, Katie’s Kantina (on the road to Perdika), Georgios restaurant (on the harbour). Jana and Stuart are lovely.
Maya May Ingram (age 10) – September 2019
Had a fantastic week at The Glass House. Just an amazing villa with some great sunset views to be had. The one restaurant we had a meal at was Georgios. We had snapper which was fresh. Mediterraneo also does a great pizza, take away or eat in. We did visit some of the beaches, but found them all to be crowded and the sunbeds very close together and as we like a bit of space, they weren’t for us. We took a drive to the Bridges of Plakidas – great place but no water flowing at this time of year.
Chris & Carlene – September 2019
Had a wonderful time – lovely villa, great place and fantastic views. Will definitely be coming back.
Two very relaxed and tanned people – September 2019
Stunning villa and location. A truly fabulous experience with Simpson Travel. We really couldn’t ask for anything more. Looking forward to booking again next year. Thank you for making it all so perfect!
Mrs Roshi Ingram – August 2019
We had a lovely holiday and The Glass House is a wonderful villa. During our stay both Stuart and Jana provided a friendly and first class service. In addition, when problems or difficulties arose, the owner also responded very swiftly.
Mr Ward – July 2019
Another fabulous holiday with Simpson Travel! We’ve had a very lazy week and have spent all our time at the villa enjoying the spectacular views. Restaurants we’ve enjoyed were Blue Coast, Filakas Hotel and Ostria in Sivota. But the best, by far, was Fork & Knife in the villa of Perdika, a 15-minute scenic drive from the villa. Sorry to be leaving so soon – a week is not long enough!
Chris, Anne & Will – July 2019
The Glass House was an excellent destination, there’s very little that could have been improved.
Tim & Nicky – June 2019
This is certainly a masterclass in design – we kept cleaning it just in case House & Garden arrived with a camera crew. Views absolutely stunning and best when coupled with the sound of the goats and their bells in the woods below. Property is unforgettable (positive!). Very much recommend Parga Olive Oil Museum – a really pleasant visit with sampling at the finish. Also, Dodoni – and the drive to get there – the monastery and its views are spectacular. Harbourfront at Sivota very pleasant choice of restaurants – Thessalia, authentic, local and friendly. Bakery opposite supermarket was great. Watch out for dogs and goats on the road up and down – they won’t hurry to move! Timing the electric gates is great fun, and also the beautiful moment on the way down where it feels like you could drive off the edge into the sea. Stuart and Jana were very helpful and gave plenty of advice.
Dave & Jane – May 2019
Fantastic villa. Great holiday. Amazing views. Can’t be faulted.
Steve & Liz – May 2019
The Glass House is a masterpiece of design that will take your breath away when you first arrive. The infinity pool and its stunning view across the sea to Corfu, Paxos and Anti Paxos takes some beating. The sound of goat bells in the evening in the woods below finishes a beautiful day. The property is a little quirky but the kitchen/lounge is massive, glass panelled and double height. Sivota is a lovely little port, and the harbourside has some great restaurants. The shopping in the town is good and there are excellent supermarkets and bakeries to top up supplies.
Mrs Cropp – May 2019
The Glass House is an absolutely stunning villa – what a peaceful location and the view is just incredible. The resort offered all that we were looking for. Great restaurants and many beaches to be found with wonderful swimming. We recommend taking a private boat trip around the islands, and a visit to the Acheron River is a must. Our thanks to Rania, the local representative, and Simpson Travel – we had a great week and will keep fond memories of Sivota.
Chris, Esther & Florence – August 2018
We had the most wonderful honeymoon at The Glass House! What a beautiful villa with wonderful views. We particularly enjoyed going to Mikri Ammos beach with its comfortable sunbeds and great atmosphere. A drive up to Perdika was well worth it for sunset views. A big thank you to Rania who was so helpful. We were very sad to leave such a beautiful place, but look forward to returning again in the future!
Fleur & Daniel Collett – July 2018
The Glass House is situated in an enviable position with views that you never get tired of. A peaceful location with the occasional chiming of goat bells, and elevated to catch the breeze. It is very well equipped and has the most comfortable bed we have ever had in a Greek villa. It’s great to have the electronic gates that can be opened from a good distance away. A most memorable holiday.
Lisa D – July 2018
We had a wonderful week in The Glass House which lived up to our previous Simpson Travel experiences. The staff cannot be praised too highly. Rania, our Simpson Travel representative, was excellent and full of information. We are looking forward to our next holiday with you.
Helen Waterworth – June 2018
We had an amazing holiday at the Glass House. Perfect place for fun and relaxation.
Mrs Marshall – August 2017
Our stay in The Glass House was really lovely, the villa has got an amazing view and is really well situated for Sivota. We visited the monasteries at Meteora and the Vikos Gorge which are really well worth doing. Rado, our local rep, was really lovely and most helpful.
Mrs King – June 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.
