Syvota (or Sivota) is a pretty harbour village in Epirus, popular with "yotties" and also the Italians and Greeks in high season. When we went Olympic and another English company were the only package deals available.
We flew Air 2000 to Corfu with Olympic Holidays and then a fast boat to Syvota.
Now more companies have Sivota on their books and they take the easier option of flying to Preveza.

It is an up-market resort, a bit pricier than other places we have visited and extremely busy in peak season. Sivota is a lovely holiday destination, with lots of tavernas and a few shops for every day needs. More of the village is a little way inland, away from the harbour.
There is a town beach, reached by footpath round the headland and other beaches within walking distance. In season there are also water taxis to ferry you to the different beaches.

There are apparently 3 buses Mon.- Fri and 2 on Sats.

There is a seasonal ferry to Paxos and Isabella travel rent cars and bikes, also boats.They can also arrange trips.

There is no bank and I don't remember a post-office.

The hinterland is beautifully green and lush. The Acheron Gorge is not too far away and is a stunningly green river with lots of possibilities for walking.

To read about our holiday here, Please look at my Syvota page.
