About the villa

A big stone house with blossoming shrubberies and breathtaking views, this exceptional family villa is certainly among the loveliest in CV Villas' Greek Islands portfolio. In a stunning setting, high on the hillside above Sivota, Villa Cercis brings more than a touch of luxury to villas in Lefkada. In a style more Tuscan than traditionally Greek, the central area is one long and lovely living room with plump-cushioned sofas and a wood-beamed ceiling, open-plan to the bespoke kitchen, and opening on to a covered terrace, comfortably furnished for outdoor living and commanding exquisite coastal views.

The bedrooms are in the two-storey ‘book-ends’ of the building, each with en suite bath or shower room and a private balcony. Steps lead down from the house to a pristine private tiled pool in its sun-trap surround, and to a little lounging area with cool cushioned rattan. This meticulous attention to detail is evident throughout the house and garden. Delightfully, comfort at Villa Cercis is matched by convenience, as the natural harbour of Sivota is just 1.5km away, with shops and cafes, a shingle beach, waterfront tavernas and often lots of yachts.


"Just simply the most beautiful villa and home wish it was mine! The panoramic views are out of this world - really do not want to leave. Thank you!"

"Your villa is simply stunning wuth eveything we could need for a wonderful holiday."

"Its been a very treasured experience, it's a beautiful island which - you have the best position - a huge thank you."

"We loved it! A fortnight.. too short, could have done a month. We go home reluctantly."

"Villa Cercis is in a magnificent location and position, very peaceful. A week is too short, we hope to be back next year!"

About the area


Average weather

In the Ionian family of islands, Lefkada is the black sheep. For a start, it is connected to the mainland by a causeway and bridge, and so does not have to rely on ferries. Unlike the rest of the archipelago, it was conquered by the Ottoman Empire, and pronounced Turkish influences give it more in common with the mainland. Lefkada holidays take you to something of an under-appreciated—and slightly oddball—gem, with intricate lagoons and marshes, spectacular cliffs, bays, and headlands, and some of the best beaches in Greece. In addition to Lefkada Town and Nidri, there are smaller resorts on the east coast at Perigiali, Nikiana and Lygia; and regular ferries ply between Lefkada and the nearby islands of Meganissi, Ithaca, and Kefalonia.
