Country Retreats

Discover a world of shady pine forests and timeless hilltop villages

Secluded Holiday Villas

All Simpson properties offer a high degree of privacy, but if you yearn to get even more off the beaten track, then you can escape the relative bustle of the beach resorts at one of our gorgeous countryside villas. From rustic conversions with all mod cons, to brand new hilltop villas with panoramic views, our wonderful accommodation combines comfort with a genuine taste of the local area, far from the inevitable coastal crowds. All our country houses have a swimming pool, with beaches generally a short drive away. They are secluded but not isolated, many within walking distance of local restaurants.

Lakes, Mountains and Lots, Lots More

Step away from the well-trodden tourist path to the sea for just a moment, and you may be surprised by the sheer variety of landscapes waiting to be discovered.  Ancient olive groves that seem to whisper centuries of secrets, protected forests sheltering a wealth of birdlife, and golden hilltop villages just crying out to be explored. There are high mountains and cycle routes, rivers for canoeing, streams for paddling and of course, fabulous walking country for all levels of fitness. Walking in Turkey or Greece may reward you with a glimpse of millennia-old ruins, while northern Mallorca is particularly good for bird watching. Corsica has the toughest long distance trail in Europe, plus lakes, waterfalls and a host of soft adventure activities to appeal to families and couples.
