Sivota in Thesprotia is a hidden away Mediterranean coastal resort that is still a place to getaway for a romantic or family escape with a sense of peacefulness. It feels like you are on a secluded Greek Island but actually you are amongst the Pindos Mountains of rugged Epirus stretching down to the west coast mainland of the Ionian Sea with its small picturesque beaches and hidden coves.
On the endless crystal blue waters with the islands of Paxoi and Corfu just a short boat trip away, is the unique traditional Greek fishing village, Sivota. In the sixties when things were even more laid back this picturesque village was the perfect place for Guy Laroche to call home during the summer months. The village of Sivota has a marina for yachts and a paved walkway along the seaside to stroll during the evening with a lively atmosphere of restaurants, taverns and cafes for your choice of pleasure and entertainment.
This is the perfect place to hop on a boat and explore dreamy islets and stunning beaches. One of the most exotic and unusual beaches you will ever experience on a holiday is Bella Vraka, which is reached by walking through shallow water. Megali Ammos meaning Large Sand is to enjoy during lunch right by the beach at a Greek Tavern. Mikri Ammos meaning Small Sand offers a organized luxury beach bar for those Greek summer moments we all long for every year. Agia Paraskevi another picturesque beach with a tiny island in the foreground is always calling for you to reach it with by swimming across the crystal blue Ionian waters.
All in all, Sivota is what we would call the ideal base as it provides more than most places with a Greek summer lifestyle of taverns, beaches, water sports, trekking, an easy short drive to the seaside town of Parga or the most amazing boat journey across to the islands of Paxoi.
