Villa Boubouki is situated about 2km outside the port village of Sivota along an unmade up track.
The location is outstanding with breathtaking views along the coast with the island of Ithaka just in view. Sitting on the large terrace overlooking the smallish but perfectly adequate infinity pool with a glass of wine in hand was just about perfect.
Or would have been if it hadn't been for the families in the nearby villas. We had gone seeking the peace and quiet that we had experienced the previous year in a nearby villa but this was not to be with the small children next door. Perhaps we were just unlucky, but it may be worth checking with Villas Thalassa (the owners of a number of properties in the area) to see if the nearby villas are taken.
The villa itself is very much as shown on the website but does need some updating. The tiles in the kitchen attract dirt, there was some peeling paint around the sink, the shower room grouting was dirty, the sliding door on the terrace would not lock.
We were also surprised that having been greeted at the villa by the local manager, there was no attempt at a welcome pack, milk, bread perhaps a bottle of wine. That would have been a nice touch.
The bedrooms were pleasantly decorated and the aircon worked effectively, but the beds themselves were hard as rock!
So perfect position, but if you're looking for that peace and quiet, be careful.
Warm welcome, amazing sea view, quite place, good weather. Boubouki is a charming villa for our stay in Greece. This rental is also well located for visiting this beautiful island. Our stay was just perfect. It was our second stay in Boubouki and we will be back soon. What a shame to return to France
