Sivota


base

Sivota or Mourtos is a marvellous coastal tourist centre full of olives.

Sivota lies only 24 km south of Igoumenitsa, and faces Corfu and Paxos. Anyone can arrive at Sivota from either Preveza or Igoumenitsa (flights to Aktion and Corfu and short ferry to Igoumenitsa) and you will pass through undeveloped landscape, small villages, deserted beaches and mountains.

There is a number of excellent and great value tavernas on the harbour front as well as grills (Kebub, Gyros) and other restaurants further back along the 'main road'. If you are self-catering there are two good bakeries, a fruit store and some supermarkets to obtain fresh food. Sivota is not a large resort although it does have a few shops for holiday items and gifts.

There are many attractive and beautiful beaches in Sivota, such as Mega Ammos, Small Ammos, Zavia, Gallikos Molos, Bellavraka, Zeris et all.

Using Sivota as a holiday base, you can visit many interesting touristic and archaeological places. You can visit by boat Paxos, Corfu and Parga, and by small bus to Necromanteion, Kassope, Nikopolis, Nekromandio, alogo, and Glyki. Since, there is a limited bus service and the village has only a couple of taxis, if you want to see the area to rent a car, it would be a good idea. Some wonderful areas then become accessible, including the town of Ioannina; Dodoni, the mountain villages of Zagorochoria; Vikos Gorge even the monasteries of Meteora.
